A garage door closer is useful or necessary in those places where you want or need to close a door.

They provide security against possible intruders since they can close the access through which we enter and exit. In the case of fire, the closer ensures that the doors remain closed.

How Do They Work?

Initially, the first door closers consisted on a simple spring, attached at one end to the door and at the other to the door frame.

Today the operation in the case of a manual door closer is based on air pressure and stored energy. And in the case of an automatic door closer, it is electronically controlled and allows the door to be opened and closed automatically. Effortless and securely closed.

What Are Its Main Functions?

The door retainer is used on doors where there is a frequent passage of people, being able to actuate when it is desired to block the door’s closing. It cannot be used in firewall applications.

Every time the door is opened, the garage door closer is repositions the door at 0º with a certain speed. The closing speed is regulated using a garage door sensor and a valve according to the requirements.

There is a regulation that allows a greater or lesser thrust to be applied during the door opening for some types of door closer. This regulation is also a function of the door’s weight and size.

When an opening needs to be made, the device recognizes the function, called “back check”, which attenuates the speed of the door during space according to the regulation made. This feature is widely used for entries subject to drafts because it prevents the door from hitting the wall.

Once opened, the garage door closer uses a specific time. The garage door sensor varies according to the regulation before closing. The disabled person has the necessary time to pass without running the risk of colliding with the closing door.

The door closer has an acceleration during closing from 15º degrees to approximately 0º degrees to ensure the door closes correctly. The final blow is used for locks where a good closing push is required. On the contrary, on electric stops, it can even be eliminated.

When the carriage is activated, it causes the door to move up or down. The main difference between the four garage doors is the driving utility. Simply put, some openers work with chains, while others use straps or threaded parts.

A garage door motors runs on one of two currents: alternating current (ac) or direct current (dc). DC-powered garage door openers can convert AC to DC power. Furthermore, DC motors are smaller in size and smoother, and quieter in performance.
