A door that slaps shut is kind of nice, if it’s a screen door on a lakeside cottage, but – when it comes to commercial doors– it’s more than not nice, it’s dangerous and potentially very expensive. You’ve got a problem, that’s why you clicked here. The good news is that you won’t have a problem much longer because calling us now will make sure you get the problem fixed soon and solid.
Commercial door closers are equipped with several adjustments to get them to work just right. There are controls for swing speed: the door’s rate as it arcs through most of its travel, the latch speed, which is the last few inches as the door approaches the latch and, lastly, back check. Back check controls the speed and resistance of the door at the final reaches of its opening to prevent the door from slamming into an adjacent wall or being yanked by the wind and bending the hinges and warping the door frame.
Door Problems = More Problems
A problem with a door closer can lead to problems with the lock, the door and the frame. If the door slams, the latch will deform and can warp the frame, loosen the hinges or rattle the bolts loose that hold the closer.
Sometimes, the problem is opposite: the door can be yanked back by the wind or pushed open past its limit, and then – the good news – it won’t slam – the bad news – now it won’t close enough to latch securely, because it’s bent.
Fix a problem now because it will save you money later
On top of all that, all seals age and the hydraulic fluid can leak and no amount of adjusting will compensate for that. Whatever the problem is, it’s made itself noticeable.
Don’t keep letting the door slam, and damage the frame, the lock and maybe your customers or employees. Please call Advanced Lock & Security to fix the problem now.
