When it comes to door closers, you want to make sure you have one that is sturdy enough to do its job. While that is one important aspect for a good door closer, there are many others that are worth looking into: You want to look into the construction of the door closer, the more heavy duty the better. This ensures that it is resistant to all kinds of abuse that door closers tend to take. Some door closers have an adjustable spring power (often from a 1-6) which is an excellent feature to have as well as dual pistons which allow for better efficiency and door control.
There are also four types of door closers which include some that are concealed in the door, concealed in the floor, and concealed in the frame, as well as surface mounted. Surface mounted is found fastened to the door frame which can be found behind the door next to the hinge that lies in the middle.
The surface mounted doors come in four types which are regular arm, slide-track, parallel arm, as well as top jab. There are also manufacturers out there who offer concealed versions. Those types are in the door frame or are mounted just under the pivot point where they can’t be seen.
Door closers are also very important as they can be installed into fire doors to help slow down and prevent additional fire, flames, and smoke. These door closers often are regulated to safety standards that we also make sure to comply with. Contact us today for all of your door closer needs!
