Door closers are mechanical devices that are attached to the top of a door to ensure that they close immediately after they have been opened. Installing them helps to keep fire doors shut at all times, while also allowing free movement through a building. Door closers offer critical protection in the event of a fire, helping to contain a fire and preventing any spread and can be life-saving equipment in an emergency situation.

It is crucial that you make the right choice for your home or business and key considerations that need to be made include the size and weight of the door, where it is located, how you will be mounting the door closer, and what the building specifications are. Speaking with a fire officer about your workplace requirements will help to add extra clarification on these points.
