Door Closers Service
Adjustment and replacement for all types of door closers.
Concealed closers are fitted into recesses in the door and frame. Thus, they aren’t visible when the door is closed. They are available as hydraulic or spring-loaded versions, and they are typically used for interior doors that are fairly light.
Floor-Spring Door Closer
Floor-spring closers are used on storefront doors. They are mounted in the floor. Floor-spring closers typically have an open setting, so that they can be left open. This closer is installed beneath the door, under the floor or in the ground.
Automatic Door Closer
This full-energy and low-energy “ADA” door closers system are designed to work with a variety of activating methods, including, push plates, motion sensors, touchless activation sensors, radio controls, card readers, and more.
Surface-mounted Door Closer
These types of door closers are fitted to the door frame, with a bar along the back of the door. Typically, these are fairly small in size, and they can be used to match the color of the door. They are a cost-effective option for automatically closing doors.
Replacing A Leaking Door Closer
The oil inside the mechanism drips down and can make floors slippery, leading to falls. In addition, this oil can stain the clothing of those passing beneath the door. Furthermore, when the oil drains from the cylinder, the closer’s ability to control the door is lost. If this occurs, the door swings freely and will start slamming. This could lead to personal injuries as well as costly damage to the door and frame.

Don’t Overlook Leaking Door Closers!
When the oil drains from the cylinder, the closer’s ability to control the door is lost. If total leakage were to occur, the door would swing freely, possibly leading to injuries as well as costly damage to the door and frame.

The hydraulic closer ensures that the doors close smoothly without slamming. This should lead the door to close steadily and require no extra effort to open or close the door.

Heavy Duty Floor Closer
In the case of floor-mounted door closers, it is harder to spot if the unit is leaking as it is with concealed transom closers that are mounted in the head of the frame. Both these units are usually fitted to doors that open both ways.
If you have an armor plate glass door in your building you probably have one of these fitted. Importantly, if they start slamming, then this is how you can tell if a floor closer is broken. In that case, you should contact us immediately as this can cause serious damage to your door and door frame. If left as is, this could lead to you requiring a new door altogether as opposed to a simpler door closer replacement!
So, if you see any of the signs of oil leakage as shown in the photos then contact us for a free quote. We can rectify the problem before serious injury or damage occurs.

Door Hold Open Mechanism
A power operator like a closer is designed to function on doors that are in adjustment and able to smoothly open, close, and latch. If the closer or operator stops working, check the operation of the door.
One thing we strongly advise against is when people use their door closer as a doorstop.
When this device is used as a doorstop, the closer body and arm mounting screws are pulled beyond their operational design.
The mounting screws are commonly damaged as a result since excess pressure is exerted upon the spindle and seals.
For many doors, a stop can be installed to help hold it open. Inquire with us today!

Don’t waste your time and money
Different brands and models of door closers deliver very different performances. Also, some closers have stay-open features. It is always best to choose the door closer which is best suited for the job at hand because the installation of an incorrect one can result in a loss of time and money (from a new repair) or worse– injury to clients and customers.
