Spadina Security installs and services
door closers in Toronto. An automatic door closer is often ignored, though it performs an important function. All exterior doors should have a good quality door closer installed. The problem is how do you tell the difference between a $20 closer and a $200 door closer when they look-alike.
The outer casing serves no purpose in closing the door. It just looks nice.
One key feature to look for is the number of cylinders in the door closer. Most good quality door closers have two or three cylinders. Each plays an important part in closing the door.
Although I don’t look for brands when I shop for clothing, door hardware is another matter. Many manufactures have made a name for themselves and they protect that reputation fiercely. LCN is just such a brand.
The main reason to buy a well-known door closer is durability. A LCN door closer can last for 25 years with little service. A low quality door closer may last for a year before all the oil drips out.
If you find oil drips on the bottom of your door close it is time to replace it. The oil slows down the springs inside the door closer. Without the oil the door can slam uncontrolled or not close all the way.Jason Scheide
