Supplying & installing overhead & under floor, door closers is another speciality of Brights. Over the years of installing Door Closures we’ve come across a lot of the door closers that haven’t been fitted or adjusted correctly and find that a lot of the time that the door closer has broken the lock due to poor installation.
With so many types of ‘closers’ on the market ranging from light internal door types for low usage, through to heavy duty types used on shop fronts and communal doors, its vitally important that the right type is used. We do find in a lot of circumstances that the wrong type has been used and mostly with light door closers in a heavy use area which can break very quickly & lead to oil spills causing further Health & Safety issues namely:
- SLIP HAZARDS FROM THE OIL
- FAULTY HYDRAULICS
- DOOR SLAMMING
- TRAPPED FINGERS (OUCH)!
Issues such as the above occur mainly due to poor product knowledge & the wrong type of door closer being fitted which can be a BIG problem indeed! It’s extremely IMPORTANT to remember that door closers are fitted for two main reasons:
1. Security reasons
2. Fire Regulations
