Door closer repair and maintenance is one a specialty of Glass Doctor® of Oxford County, ON. Count on our experts to ensure that your door continues to open smoothly and safely for every customer.
How Door Closers Work
A manual door closer is an important component to your entryway, allowing individuals to open your door easily without having to close it physically. If your door closer is well maintained and properly installed, the user should feel a small amount of resistance while opening the door before it glides open. A spring attached to the door closer's arm returns the door gently into its frame once the user passes through.
Improperly Installed and Adjusted Door Closers
Only a trained professional should make adjustments to your door closer. Our specialists use precise measurements and specialized tools to install and maintain all manual door closers, maximizing their lifespan and ensuring the safety of all those who pass through your door. Having repairs and maintenance carried out by a professional eliminates common problems, including:
- Sudden or abnormal movements of the door
- Door misalignments
- Damage to your door or doorframe
Incorrect Types of Door Closers
Having the correct type of door closer installed is just as important as its ongoing maintenance. If you have a heavier door, it requires a strong door closer with durable strong springs. The wrong type of closer often leads to malfunctions and poses a safety risk.
Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels
Like any piece of equipment, door closers are susceptible to everyday wear and tear, including broken seals. A broken seal exposes the hardware inside your door closer, potentially causing further problems and frequently leading to lubricant leaks. Proper lubrication keeps your door moving smoothly, and our specialists will check your door closer's oil level, as well as look for related mechanical problems, including:
- Missing screws
- Failed seals
- Broken O-rings
