Although a door closer can automatically close the door for us, it is not easy to properly install and adjust a closer! If the installed door closer closes the door too hard, it will generate noise and affect our normal life; if the door closer is closed too fast, the elderly and children will be in danger when using it. Therefore, we need to make relevant adjustments to the door closer.
1. How to adjust the door closer - the necessity of door closer adjustment
Sometimes, people forget to close the door after opening the door. So in order to avoid the trouble caused by this, some people choose to install a door closer on the door. Door closer is a kind of product in hardware and building materials, but it is not so simple to make door closers work well. The door closers purchased are usually in factory settings, and their closing force and speed are certain. Then, if the force of closing the door is too large or too small, it will bring some problems, such as making noise, unable to close in time and so on. We often need to make relevant adjustments according to the weight of the door and the user's situation. And, there are usually several types of door closers, there will be corresponding adjustment methods. So, how to adjust the door closer? The following will introduce you to it.
2. How to adjust the door closer - how to adjust the force of the door closer
The adjustment method of door closers is not unique. Different models of door closers have different methods, some simple and some complex. When adjusting, perform relevant operations according to the purpose of the adjustment. Well, we also know that the closing force of the door closer determines whether there will be noise during the closing process. Then, if you want to adjust the strength of the door closer, you can refer to the following methods:
According to the selected door closer model, find the screw that adjusts the strength of the door closer. Usually, tightening the valve screw reduces the force of the door closer to close the door. Therefore, if the size of the home improvement door is small, the door is relatively light, or the original setting will cause a strong collision when the door is closed, then we must tighten it a little to reduce the force of the door closer to close the door. On the other hand, if the door is heavy or the door cannot be closed well, loosen the valve screw and increase the force of the door closer when closing the door. In the process of adjustment, the control of the intensity needs to be tried several times, and it cannot be adjusted in place all at once.
3. How to adjust the door closer - how to adjust the speed of the door closer
In fact, the power adjustment of the door closer described above is directly related to the closing speed of the door closer. Generally, if the closing force of the door closer is relatively large, the closing speed will be faster; if the closing force of the door closer is small, the closing speed will be slower. Therefore, the speed regulation of the door closer is similar to the force regulation. However, some door closers have screws that directly control the speed, so it needs to be adjusted according to the strength and speed. In the case that the door closer has been adjusted to the appropriate force, if you want to adjust the speed of the door closer, you can first find the screw that adjusts the speed, and then see the size indication of the door closing speed adjustment valve. If there are elderly people or children who need to slow down the closing speed, turn the screw to the side that slows down the speed; if the closing speed is too slow and the door cannot be closed in time, then turn the screw to the side that speeds up the closing speed. . However, people with less experience in decoration can try several times when adjusting the speed of the door closer, and finally determine the speed of the lower door closer.
