What is a door closer?

Door closers are mechanical devices that automatically close doors once they have been opened. They are used in office buildings, shopping centres, banks and many other buildings.  Most are visible overhead door closers as illustrated. Some are concealed in the floor and covered by a metal plate under the door, and some are mounted inside the door frame at the top of the door and are not visible.

Why use a door closer?

Some advantages of installing a door closer:

If installed correctly, a door closer will allow a door to close softly, without slamming

If installed correctly, a door closer will ensure that after a door is opened, it  closes and locks to maintain security

A door closer will seal all doors to keep airconditioned or heated environments more stable and reduce power usage

A door closer ensures that emergency exit doors close after escape, to prevent the ingress of air, which would fan a fire and drive harmful smoke through the building

A door closer will prevent the wind from slamming the door and possibly breaking the glass and damaging the door when it slams

We provide the public and trade with door closers. We also have vast experience and advice to offer with regards to the best installation practices to ensure that your door closers work as they were designed to.  Correct installation is critical to both the performance and longevity of the door closer.   An error of 10 mm in installation is a BIG error!  The two most common errors are – incorrect fitting (i.e. not using the template supplied, or using it incorrectly) and fitting a door closer that is too light for the size of the door or the wind conditions.  Door weight is not as important as door size!  Learn more about  Door Closers here.
