There’s no doubt that there are plenty of door closer selections available in the market, such as overhead door closers and magnetic door holders. However, out of all the door closer options, the benefits of floor springs cannot be overlooked. These are preferred by those who need doors that pay attention to versatility, seamlessness, convenience, safety, and aesthetics.
A floor spring is a mechanical device that allows your doors to close themselves after opening. It is typically used for glass doors along with patch fitting, but it can also be used for other types of doors. Almost invisible, yet functional, you will likely see plenty of floor springs in business parks, malls, hospitals, movie theaters, and residential condominiums.
Let’s take a closer look into the benefits of floor springs.
Floor Springs Provide An Attractive and Seamless Finish
Floor springs are ideal for glass doors because they are virtually invisible. They look great and are not as bulky as other types of door closers such as overhead door closers and magnetic door holders. You won’t be able to use any other door closer that isn’t as intrusive as the Levon glass floor springs.
Floor springs blend seamlessly into the floor because they have cement boxes installed within the ground. The only part you’ll see once you’re done installing a floor spring is its cover, which usually has an attractive chrome/silver finish that does not detract from the “clean” door design. The cover can also be available in other finishes depending on the floor spring supplier you choose.
And while floor springs are typically used on glass doors, they can be used on steel, aluminum, and wooden doors as well. Whatever interior decor theme you plan to have — rustic, modern, luxurious, or classic — you can definitely pick a bespoke floor spring style that will blend seamlessly.
Floor Springs Are Versatile
While it’s true that there are various steps involved when installing floor springs such as deciding on the digging hole position, putting the cement box, and adjusting the floor spring, floor springs are extremely versatile. They can be utilized with many types of flooring and doors (single and double action).
Floor springs are ideal for large doors. Oftentimes heavy doors for floor-to-ceiling heights are too large and heavy for standard door closers. Floor springs with top pivots and straps help support the weight of large doors.
There are also different types of floor springs designed for outdoor and interior use. Most models have adjustable closing speed, closing force, latching action, and more. Some are even electromagnetic and are equipped with hold-open functions, which are ideal for use in fire/smoke doors. Link the floor spring to the fire alarm using an interface and you can program the door to automatically close in case of fire.
Simply put, floor springs are extremely versatile enough to suit any door type. This is why they are highly preferred in both commercial and residential spaces.
Floor Springs Can Be Opened In Both Directions
Unlike standard door closers that can only be opened in one direction, floor springs can be opened in both directions. Floor springs are hydraulic door closers. However, instead of a rack, a turbine is used to compress the floor. This component can rotate backward and forward, making them beneficial in high foot traffic areas.
Floor Springs Make It Easy To Close Heavy Doors
Given that floor springs are hydraulic door closers, they can help in closing heavy doors. For example, doors located on rooftops have to go against high winds. Closing these types of doors could lead to slamming and potential injuries. With the use of floor springs, the doors can automatically close after opening.
Floor Springs Are Budget-Friendly
Floor springs are generally small in size. In addition, different models are available to fit most project budgets. Aluminum Depot also offers a selection of affordable floor spring models for your project needs.
