Door closers make opening and closing doors easy and safe. There are two main categories: manual door closers and automatic door closers. Manual door closers are opened by push, and gently close afterwards.

The Importance of Door Closers
The most common application of door closers is on fire safety doors. Door closers effectively prevent spread of fire and smoke to other parts of the building thereby helping save lives and property. Door closers aid disabled individuals by providing resistance to opening forces. Apart from enhancing the visual appeal of the building, door closers also aid in improving health and, well-being and security of the building occupants while also sustaining optimum room temperature and diminishing chances of vandalism.
Door Closer Types
These door closers are mounted to the top of the door, and are the most common and least expensive to install. They are highly functional and very effective for door control, making them a popular choice for office buildings and apartments. They can come with slide-track arm, regular arm, parallel arm or top jamb.
Concealed door closers function very much like surface-mounted door closers, but are kept more or less out of sight, making them more aesthetically pleasing.
Most often used when dealing with heavy doors or when you have a lot of traffic in your building, floor-mounted door closers are more expensive to install, but are the most durable option available.
