After assessing the factors above, the next step is to determine what type of door closer will work best in your space. At Sure Lock & Key, we offer six types of door closers; three overhead closers and three concealed closers.
Overhead Door Closers
This type of door closer is located on the pull-side, or exterior, of the door. When the door is closed, the arm of the door closer extends straight out. This is the most powerful type of door closer, making it ideal for heavy doors which experience a lot of traffic.
Similar to regular arm, a top jamb door closer is also located on the pull-side of the door. However, the spring-loaded box is situated on the front of the door frame. This type of door closer is optimal for aluminum or glass doors.
This type of door closer has two arms on the top of the door attached to a spring-loaded box when closed. Unlike regular arm and top jamb, the box sits on the push side of the door. This types is most commonly used in commercial properties & schools.
Other Door Closers
Unlike the overhead door closers, a concealed door closer fits in the door and its frame, making it invisible when the door is closed. This type of door closer is much more attractive, however, it is only recommended for lighter interior doors.
This door closer is fitted to the frame via the bar on the back of the door. Not only is the surface-mounted door closer smaller, but it can easily match the door colors. It is a cost-effective, tasteful option for doors which close automatically.
Similar to the Concealed door closer, the floor spring door closer is out of view. However, this type of closer is mounted to the floor by a bar that controls the closing. A floor spring door closer is ideal for a glass storefront door.
At Sure Lock & Key, we offer finishes for your door closers. Not only do they add visual appeal to the door closers, but their practicality ensures our door closers will withstand the elements and time.
