The door closer is the easiest and most economical way to close a door automatically. It arises very simply with a few screws and is practically indestructible. You will pose it with a very limited number of tools, without specific skills in DIY. This material is not suitable for very heavy doors.
The mechanism of the rod door closer is fixed to the doorframe frame (in other words the door frame), unlike that of the hydraulic door closer which is fixed to the door itself. It is good to place it in the middle of the door panel. It benefits from a closing power adjustment system.
