What are the installation methods of door closers?
The installation of door closers is something we often encounter in the construction of weak current projects. Here are five methods for installing door closers. I hope all weak current engineers can use them as a reference in daily construction.
1. Standard installation
Install the door closer body on the side of the sliding door, and install the arm on the door frame. This installation method is more suitable for the situation where the door frame is narrow and there is not enough space to install the door closer. When the door is opened to a large enough angle without obstacles in the opening direction, the door closer will not hit other objects with this installation method.
2. Parallel installation
Install the door closer on the sliding door side and the parallel plate on the door frame. This installation method is more suitable for scenes with narrow door frames or basically no door frames. After installation in this way, because there are no protruding connecting rods and rocker arms, it is more beautiful and elegant. Parallel installation is suitable for obstacles such as walls in the direction of opening the door. Compared with the standard installation, the closing force of this installation is smaller.
3. Upper door frame installation
Install the door closer on the side of the sliding door and the arm on the door. This installation method is suitable for scenarios where the door frame is wide and there is enough space to install the door closer. Compared with the standard installation, the upper door frame installation method is suitable for the situation where there are obstacles such as walls in the opening direction. This installation method has a larger closing force and is more suitable for heavy doors.
4. Slide rail installation
Usually the door closer is installed on the door and the slide rail is installed on the door frame. Door closers can be on both sides of the door. Compared with the first three installation methods, this installation method has less force to close the door. After installation in this way, because there is no protruding link and rocker arm, it is beautiful and elegant.
5. Concealed/Hidden installation
This installation method is the same as the slide rail installation for the concealed door closer. Compared with the previous installation methods, this installation method has the smallest closing force. After being installed in this way, the door has no exposed parts in the closed state, so it is the most beautiful. This installation method is the most complicated and is best done by a professional. This installation method requires a large gap with the door frame, usually 10MM (or remove the material on the upper part of the door during installation to increase the gap). The thickness of the door exceeds 42MM.
