Door Closer, Can you imagine a front door or a kitchen stair door without a door closer – no, right? A good door closer is not just a convenience because the door closes automatically.

It also helps to extend the life of your door and lock as it closes in a controlled manner each time. At the same time, it helps to raise the fuse significantly as it ensures that the door actually closes once it has been opened. Door Closer Repair Toronto

Ontario Door Repair has installed door closers for more than 22 years and are experts in the field. We installs door closers daily and often manufactures special solutions for e.g. gates and gates where it can be difficult to place a door closer.

All door closers must be adjusted and serviced at regular intervals. Even newer door closers that are less sensitive to temperature changes must be adjusted at least once a year so that they close the door as best as possible. Therefore, we recommend that you sign up for a service subscription with Ontario Door Repair, so we come and lubricate your locks and adjust your door closers a few times a year.

When we adjust a door closer, it is important to find the right compromise between closing safety and comfort. If we adjust the door closer too strongly, the door becomes too heavy to open, but in turn closes every time and we adjust it too easily, it is easy to open for the users, but then does not close the door when it is windy. The goal is for the door to close by itself in 98% of cases. If it is very windy, or very cold, it is acceptable for users to help the door closer to close the door.

Door automation

In most cases, you go a long way, with a good ordinary door closer that can close the door automatically. In some cases, however, it is also practical if the door can also open automatically, e.g. for shop doors, frequently used common doors, doors used by people with a mobility impairment, or simply all the doors where you want the comfort of an automatic opening.

This is where door automation comes into the picture.

A door automation can be used in many places and not just to provide access for people with reduced mobility. Door automation is also used extensively on e.g. gates and gates where you have to bring goods or bicycles through, they are used on kitchen doors in restaurants, where staff run in and out with something in their hands all the time and many other places where consideration for work environment or comfort dictates an automated opening of the door.

One of the things to consider when setting up a door closer is who is going to use the door. For certain user groups or use situations, safety sensors are required so that the door does not risk tipping over, e.g. children or weak walking when opening or closing.

In other situations, there is a requirement for the door closer to be able to close by itself, even if the power has gone out. This typically applies to fire doors.

Automatic Fire Door Closure (ABDL)

As a rule, a fire door must always be closed and must not be kept open with hooks, wedges and the like. In some places, however, it is impractical in everyday life and therefore we install ABDL systems which can keep the door open, but which automatically close it if the power goes out or the smoke detector is activated.

Typical areas of application are middle doors in institutions and companies. It is very easy to see if there is a need for an ABDL system on the door: If you observe that a door is kept open by means of an object, such as wedge, chair, stone or the like, there is probably a need.

Window repairs and door repairs – the cost-effective alternative

Windows and Doors Repair, Regardless of whether your window no longer closes properly, the window handle cracks or the patio door can no longer be opened. We at Ontario Door Repair from Toronto will take care of it!

We can also supply you with the right fittings for older models and carry out professional repairs to windows, patio doors and balcony doors. If there are no more spare parts available for your windows, doors and gates, we can easily manufacture the required parts ourselves in our locksmith’s and specialist workshop for security technology.

Set the patio door or balcony door correctly

Patio doors are exposed to high levels of stress over many years. It is not only the strong temperature fluctuations and the weather, but also the high weight that represent high loads. The door hinges in particular are subject to one-sided stress – the balcony door is warped. The result is that the door can only be opened or closed with difficulty or not at all.

We will reset your balcony door or patio door professionally and take over the lubrication of the fittings in the course of the work.

Professional maintenance of windows and doors pays off

If windows, doors and gates are not serviced, this significantly shortens the service life of the moving parts.

You can do something about this: Have your windows adjusted regularly and the fittings greased. With our window service and the service for patio doors, balcony doors and house doors, you avoid direct friction between steel and steel, facilitate the closing and opening movement and avoid unnecessary material wear. Poorly used windows that cannot be repaired subsequently require the entire mechanical system to be replaced.

Even if your sliding door no longer runs smoothly or jams, we are there.
Parallel slide and tilt doors – service and repair from specialists

The parallel slide and tilt door (with both sliding and tilting functions) is often used on terraces and balconies, as it can be installed quickly and easily in new buildings as well as renovations. Their space-saving way of opening – compared to classic double doors – is what makes them so popular at the moment. The PSK doors are ideal where a swing door protruding far into the room would be a hindrance.

Small, light doors have the advantage that the carriages and the tilting mechanism are not heavily loaded. The larger and heavier the elements that can be opened, the more vulnerable the mechanics become. Regular maintenance can prevent major repairs. Maintenance includes greasing and adjusting the fittings and embedding the seals with silicone oil.

Cheaper and faster than buying a new one

If the fittings can no longer be repaired, we will be happy to arrange a professional repair. For this purpose, running shoes, running rails and possibly the surrounding window fittings are replaced. Compared to a new acquisition, this not only saves costs, but also time and nerves.

Maintenance and replacement of door and window seals

Window seals on doors become brittle and fragile over time. This aging phenomenon can be delayed with good care, but the seals should be replaced after a while. This preserves the tightness of the window and door and prevents the ingress of moisture and drafts. If your windows or doors are a bit older and the original seals are no longer available, we can use universal seals instead.

Making window seals winter-proof

Before the onset of the cold season, check the condition of your window and door seals. If the seals are basically still intact, maintenance is advisable in any case, as this protects the seals and prevents the window from freezing.
