Door closers are hydraulic pistons on top of doors that automatically close the door at a slow speed. They are required for many commercial and retail spaces by building codes, but locksmiths still recommend these devices where they are not strictly required. To help you understand why, ADA NY Locksmith explains a few of the benefits closers provide.
Reasons to Have Your Locksmith Install Door Closers
People often forget to close doors behind them, which is a safety concern. Whether you have an office space with valuable electronics or a retail space with inventory inside, an open door isn’t a smart security move. If it’s an area that requires some extra security, combine your door closer with an automatically locking door so you know that it’s always closed and locked.
2. Efficiency & Comfort
An open door allows all your conditioned air to quickly escape; it’s a pointless and costly exercise to run climate control if a door is left wide open somewhere in the building. Automatic closing ensures your conditioned air stays inside where it belongs. This precaution will save you a lot of money on utility bills and keep everyone inside the building more comfortable with a steady indoor temperature throughout the day.
3. Door Protection
In addition to keeping doors from staying open, closers prevent them from slamming shut. Slamming is not only a disturbance to everyone in the area, but it can also damage the door and its frame. By ensuring it always closes at a safe speed, you’ll enjoy a better looking and longer lasting door.
