What Is Back Check

What Is Back Check

Date:May 06, 2019

Backcheck slows the door in the opening swing to help keep it from hitting an adjacent wall or having wind throw it out of your control. Backcheck resistance should only be felt near the fully open position. 

Notes: Backcheck is not a door stop. Most of our Grade 1 door closers offer fully adjustable Backcheck.
