Don’t let the door hit your customer on their way out. Door closers slow down your door and make sure that it closes completely. They are important both for your customer’s experience of the door and to ensure the security of your building, as people who wish to gain unauthorized access often try to slip in the back door after someone leaves.
Door closers can be important for accessibility, and so they are mandated on some doors and not others. Plus, there are a handful of brands which make different door closer products of different quality. Which should you choose, and which doors should you install them on? The professionals at CLAD are here to help with detailed information, recommendations, and top-notch installation and repair services.
Why Use Door Closers?
Door closers control the swing of any door they are installed on. Either mechanically or with electricity, they slow down the swing of a door and pull it all the way shut. Inside and outside, on single and double doors, door closers are useful for these purposes:
- Prevent fire: Fire doors and other internal doors need to close to reduce the spread of fire through your property. Door closers ensure that your door will fully close even if someone forgets.
- Prevent injury: When doors close too quickly, especially when heavy, they can injure people. Those with mobility issues especially need doors to close slowly. This hardware controls the swing of your door, so it closes predictably, and people can get out of the way.
- Prevent slamming: Slamming doors are disruptive and can irritate people in the building, especially staff who have to hear the door slam several times per day. Door closers eliminate slamming.
- Prevent security risks: When a door is left open, people with less than noble intentions can use it to sneak it. Door closers ensure your exterior doors always fully close.
