Door Closer Replacement Services
If your door closer is not closing the door completely, it may be defective or damaged. You can test this by opening and shutting the door several times to see if the door closes completely. If you find that the door does not close all the way, then it is time for a new door closer.
Replacing an old door closer with a new one usually costs between $100-$200 depending on how many parts are needed. The price of replacing a door closer depends on the model number of your door closer.
The most important thing to consider when purchasing a door closer is the warranty. Make sure that the manufacturer offers a warranty for at least two years. Also make sure that the door closer comes with instructions so that you don’t have any problems installing it.
You definitely need a professional to install your door closer because they have the right tools and knowledge to get the job done correctly. A professional will also ensure that the door closer is installed correctly and securely.
Yes, you can use a different brand of a door closer as long as it meets the same specifications as the original door closer. However, you must follow the installation guidelines provided by the manufacturer.
Different Kinds of Door Closers
All door closers tend to have one main purpose, which is to keep a door closed. But they can come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. There are also six common different types and knowing which one you have can help when it comes to finding out what the problem is. These six different types consist of:
- Modern with removable covers
- Modern without cover
- Concealed in door
- Concealed in frame
- Concealed in floor
Aside from the types of door closers, there are also different types of door closer arms available. Knowing the type of closer arm is important because they all serve a difference application, even though they all perform the same action of facilitating the door closer’s main functionality. There are four different types of door closer arms available:
- Hold-Open arms, which prevent the door from closing physically
- Dead-stop arms, which rely on a built-in back check that protects against swinging the door too far
- Spring-stop arms, which is similar to dead-stop arms but rely on a built-in spring
- Heavy-duty arms, as the name implies, this type of door closer arm is designed for areas with high winds or high traffic. It helps prevent the closer arm from breaking down due to overuse or heavy force.
Concealed Door Closers
Door closers can be installed in four different ways: mounted on the wall or door frame, floor, or door. Locks Around the Clock can help you install the right door closer for your building’s service needs. Concealed door closer systems are becoming increasingly popular, as they are just as effective as mounted or ground-mounted door closers, but without detracting from the aesthetics of a room. They are almost ‘hidden’ from view, making the entrance or opening look better. The downside is that they require much greater amounts of labor to repair and troubleshoots. Most cases require the entire door to be removed in order to render services. This is particularly true in heavy duty applications that require panic hardware and crash bars.
