Benefits of a door closer
Though door closers tend to be associated to businesses, they are also beneficial for residences as well. They ensure two things. One, your door will fully close. This means that your door won’t be left ajar after you pass through it with arms full of groceries. Two, it slows down the rate of which your door closes. Especially important to those with small children and pets, this means that fingers and limbs won’t get stuck in the door jam after it closes. It also can prevent the slamming of doors, which over time causes damage to your door and the locking mechanisms inside it, making them less secure over time.
