Issues Closing Due to The Door Closer
When doors close inefficiently, then all of your security measures are rendered entirely moot. You may as well have a big hole in your building allowing anyone to come and go. Such an issue has various causes that can be difficult to identify on your own. This can include damage to your door, worn-out hinges or damaged locking hardware, but one of the most common issues lies within the door closer itself.
A door closer is the piece of hardware that controls the swing of the door. It prevents the door from opening too far (back check) and allows the door to close smoothly (sweep speed). The last few degrees of the door closing process is called the latch speed.
The latch speed of a door closer must be adjusted correctly so the door will completely close, without slamming shut. Some door closers can be fixed with simple adjustments, but sometimes the door closer needs to be replaced completely.
Our commercial locksmiths and door security specialists can test a door closer, make adjustments or replace it if needed. If you are having any issues with your businesses doors opening and closing properly the safety of your employees and security of your building are at risk.
