Heavy Duty Door Closers

A door closer is a type of hydraulic door closer that is designed to automatically close a door such as a hollow metal door, storefront entrance door, or wood passage door. Unlike residential doors, commercial doors are much more heavier and receive 100 to 1000 times more traffic than that of a residential door. For example, commercial entrance door to a town shopping center can be used well over two thousand times a day. At Automatic Door and Hardware we specialize in commercial grade door closers. Our grade 1 door closers are designed for commercial entrances of all types and have been tested and have exceeded over 2 million cycles. We offer a variety of universal commercial door closers designed for use on all commercial door types.

Types Of Door Closers

Door closers vary depending on the door application. It is important to understand what type of door you have in order to select the correct door closer. At Automatic Door and Hardware we make this easy for beginners or experts of the door trade. We offer all in one products like hollow metal door closers, commercial wood door closers, and storefront door closers, so you can get everything you need in one easy package.

Door Closer Grades

Similar to a how you would be graded in a high school math class, the door hardware industry has their own set of standardized grading system. These national standards are put into place by organizations like ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and BHMA (Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association). In a growing market with so many different models the door closer grade helps identify to building owners, contractors, and door professionals the durability and safety of the door closer. Commercial door closers are available in Grade 1 or Grade 2. With a grade 1 commercial door closer indicating that it has been tested for over 2 million door cycles and a grade 2 door closer indicating it has been tested for 1 million door cycles. There are Grade 3 door closers which have been tested for 500,000 cycles, however these are considered residential grade. At Automatic Door and Hardware we believe in quality. We only offer Grade 1 door closers because we believe those are the only door closers that should be used on a commercial door. Grade 2 and 3 door closers may appear less expensive in cost, but wear down very quickly and result in frequent replacements. We have found that Grade 1 door closers are actually a better value and lower cost of ownership over the entire life span of the door.

Door Closers can be further differentiated by their body design. There are two standard door closer bodies, both of which are utilized for different door applications.

Non Concealed Surface Door Closers

A non-concealed surface mounted hydraulic door closer is the most popular door closer type. This door closer body is rectangular shaped. Sometimes the door closer body is covered with a plastic housing, other times the door closer body is exposed and visible to the eye. Non concealed door closers are very popular because they are easy to install and require little door preparation. The door closer is designed to either mount at top of the door frame or on the door itself. Non concealed door closers are very easy to adjust since all adjustment valve screws can easily be accessed since the door closer is surface installed to the door or frame.

Concealed Door Closers

Concealed door closers or sometimes called overhead concealed door closers, is a type of hydraulic door closer that is flat in shape and designed to mount inside of the top of the door frame. Concealed door closers are mainly used in aluminum storefront entrance doors, but can be used in commercial wood or hollow metal doors, if the door is pre-fabricated for the door closer. Doors that use concealed door closers are generally center hung (the pivot point of the door is at the center line of the door jamb). Although concealed door closers are durable, they are often only seen on doors which architects want to conceal the door hardware in order to achieve an aesthetic look.

Adjusting Door Closers

All door closers utilize the same two type of adjustment valves, S and L, which control the different speeds at which the hydraulic door closer closes the door. S stands for sweep speed. The sweep speed adjustment on the door closer controls the speed of the door closing from the full open position to approximately 15 degrees. The L stands for latch speed which controls the speed of the door closing the very last 15 degree to the full closed position. At Automatic Door and Hardware all of our door closers feature easy to identify speed adjustment valves, so you can quickly and safely adjust the door closer to the appropriate speed settings for your door application.

Installing Door Closers

Door closers can be installed in three main ways: regular arm installation, top jamb arm installation, and parallel arm installation. All three installation types are typically indicated by a door closer using the term "tri packed". If a door closer is labeled or described as tri packed, it indicates that the door closer includes all hardware so that can be installed in any of the three listed configurations.

Top Jamb Door Closer

A top jamb door closer is when the door closer is mounted on the push side of the door. The door closer body mounts to the top of the door frame and the arm attaches to the door. Top jamb door closers are very popular on storefront aluminum doors.

Regular Arm Door Closer

A regular arm door closer is when the door closer is mounted on the pull side of the door. The door closer body is mounted on the door and the arm is mounted at the top of the door frame. Since regular arm door closers are used on inswinging door applications, this door installation is rarely found on storefront entrance doors or other exterior type of door applications. The regular arm door closer configuration is very popular on interior wood door and hollow metal steel door applications.

Parallel Arm Installation

A parallel arm door closer utilizes a special parallel arm bracket that is designed to attach to the end of the door closer arm. The door closer body mounts to the top of the door on the push side. The parallel arm with the bracket attaches to the frame head. Parallel arm door configurations are very popular on interior wood door and hollow metal steel door applications.

What Is The Best Door Closer

Finding the best door closer begins with asking the right questions. How heavy is the door? Is the door a wood, steel, or aluminum glass door? How much traffic door does the door get per day? Understanding that door closers vary and factors such as the questions asked previously, will put you one step in the right direction of find the best door closer for your door. Automatic Door and Hardware understands that when door is broken down, you as a contractor or building owner must fix it immediately. That is why we do the extra leg work and take out any confusion by providing our own brand of high quality door closer kits that are adjustable and can be used for any door size, that are grade 1 and extremely durable for all traffic types, that are tri-packed and can be installed in any configuration, and many more factors. We take out the guess work for you and provide you door closer solutions that work in real world applications.

How Much Does A Door Closer Cost

A true door closer will cost approximately $120 to $350. The price range varies depending on factors such as door closer grade, door closer spring adjustment, door closer delayed action feature, door closer back check feature, door closer arm type, door closer accessories, etc. Automatic Door and Hardware manufactures high quality door closers at wholesale prices. For the best deal on high quality door closers shop at Automatic Door and Hardware.

Do Doors Require Door Closers

The short answer to this is yes. Most commercial doors are ADA doors. ADA regulations require either a door closer or spring hinges to automatically close the door. Since commercial doors are heavy duty and either constructed from solid wood, hollow metal, or aluminum and glass, spring hinges are not feasible for the majority of commercial doors. Therefore a door closer is necessary. Another factor is all commercial buildings will have fire doors. Fire doors are required to have a self closing mechanism to automatically close the door in case a fire breaks out. The solution to fire doors is a fire rated door closer.
