Door closers have a wide array of uses and the choice of type or the door closer itself depends heavily upon the purpose of its installation.
Door closers can be broadly categorized into Manual and Automatic. While manual door closers use a compression and release mechanism of torsion spring, the speed of which is regulated by hydraulic or spring dampers. The automatic door closer* on the other hand is activated or controlled by push buttons, motion detectors and various other devices to detect presence and open and close accordingly.
Door Closer Surface mounted: Most overhead door closers are of this type and they can come with slide-track arm, regular arm, parallel arm or top jamb.
Door Closer Concealed in frame, floor or door: This is more common in usage and as the name suggests, the door closers are concealed in the door frame, mortices in the door or under the pivot point on the floor.
*Automatic Door Closer
An automatic door closer (more often called a “door opener”) opens the door itself, typically under the control of a push button, motion detector or other device, and then closes it as well, typically employing a motion or proximity detector to determine when it is safe to close the door.
