Door closers are constantly undergoing wear, and could require replacement over time. When it’s time to install new door closers, how do you know which ones will work best for your business? Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing door closers so that you can ensure you get the ones that are precisely right for you.
Door closers contain hydraulic dampers that control the rate at which the door closes. The speed can be adjusted in order to make the door close faster or slower. Door closers come in different sizes and you have heavy duty or light duty closers, and the larger your door is, the bigger and heavier duty a closer you will need.
In order to choose the right closer, you’ll need to know what size door you have in addition to its weight. It also matters if the door you are mounting the closer on is an inside door or an outside door. You should always let your installer know what the purposes of the closer are, if you are wanting it to close fast for security reasons, to keep unauthorized personnel out of a restricted area for instance. If you don’t have this information, one of our installation experts can easily help you determine the type of closer that would be best for you and your specific requirements.
You may also want to consider door closers that will provide access for people with limited mobility or handicapped individuals. These closers should be placed on exterior doors, but can also be installed on interior ones in order to make them easier to access.
