Different Doors, Different Door Closer?

- Jun 06, 2019-

Fire doors are designed to stop fire and smoke from spreading through the buildings in fire emergency. Failure to do so may not only imperil lives, but also lead to legal problems. It’s therefore imperative to select the perfect door closer to ensure fire door can close properly.

So, do we need different door closers for different doors? Well, the answer is YES and NO.

There are two common types of door closers:

  • Floor spring – preferred for heavy weight doors.

  • Overhead door closer – preferred for medium weight door

However, people still need to make the proper choice depending on the different force needed to auto-close the doors.
