Trying to keep doors shut? Here’s a look at the most common door closer designs.

Door Closer Parts and Accessories
If you’re searching for a replacement or upgraded part for your current door closer solution, there are plenty of parts and accessories you can find to solve your issues, starting with the right paint to refinish or touch-up your already-installed door closer.
You can also find replacement drop plates, door arms, and more to keep your system in good working order and looking its best. If you’re searching for such parts or accessories, it’s best to reach out to the manufacturer directly who can steer you in the right direction.
Door Stops and Holders
Door control isn’t based entirely on keeping entryways closed to prevent drafts and improve security. In many cases, door control may also require you to leave doors open, in which case door stops and holders will come very much in handy.
Door Stops: Keep a door open with a door stop attached to the bottom edge, which will create friction on the floor to hold it open a certain amount. Most stops only work on certain surfaces.
Door Holders: Door holders help keep doors open, often with a base attached to the wall or floor, with designs ranging from magnetic to mechanical and even automatic. Perfect for the start or end of the day.
Door Bumpers: Prevent damage to doors and walls with door bumpers, which only allow doors to come so close to the walls and obstacles behind them.
Find the Perfect Solution
Ultimately, there’s no shortage of options on the market, so take your time to analyze what’s out there and find the perfect solution for your institution. With the right combination of solutions, door control will no longer be a hassle.
