Naples Door Closer Service

Architectural Builders Supply provides over the counter sales and field replacement of your surface mounted, floor and overhead concealed door closers in the greater Naples Florida area including Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Estero, Golden Gate and surrounding areas. We supply and install, and occasionally repair, door closers by all manufacturers with a partial list as seen here:

  • Cal-Royal
  • Corbin-Russwin
  • C.R. Laurence
  • International Door Closers
  • Global Door Controls
  • LCN
  • Norton
  • Paramount
  • Rixson
  • S. Parker
  • Sargent
  • Sentinel
  • Trans-Atlantic

We keep in stock door closers to fit all of the major footprints in both aluminum and dark bronze finishes for your immediate pickup or if you elect you can hire us to come and perform the field service call at your location.

When do you know it's time to have the door closer replaced? The most obvious clue is the door is slamming. Upon closer review you usually notice there is oil that is leaking out of the shaft as seen in the photograph below (if you look close you will see the glistening evidence of oil escaping from the body). More commonly you will see that oil evidence on the face of the door, the door closer body and cover and the floor below the opening. What always accompanies this condition is that the door closer is no longer performing within the standards established in the ADA Handicap compliance Federal Code and specifically section 404.2.7.1 Door Closers of the ICC A117.1-2009 edition which states

Door closers shall be adjusted so that from an open position of 90 degrees, the time required to move the door to an open position of 12 degrees shall be 5 seconds

The 5-second requirement is a minimum time requirement and doors very typically slam quite forcefully. I have been in several restaurants in the greater Naples area and the majority of them are failed the door closers which slam closed, are not code compliant and further this installation works to degrade the integrity of the door, the frame and the wall as a result of the constant slamming. A slamming door will also "knock" a frame out of square which may lead to the door no longer latching closed. It is certainly a disturbance to the client when the door is literally making a loud slam that you can hear clear across the establishment, myself included.

Permitting a failed door closer installation to persist not only runs afoul of established federal enforceable code but it creates a dangerous condition for the users, especially children, and again works to a erode to the integrity of the door, frame and wall installation.
