The hydraulic door closer is the most efficient and comfortable way to close a door automatically after it has been opened. The system has a power setting of closing but also braking thereof at the end of the race to prevent a too violent slamming of the door. Be careful to always fix the mechanism on the door and the anchoring of the articulated arm on the frame frame (its frame)!
The attachment of a hydraulic door closer is done with a minimum of tools. A drilling template greatly facilitates the identification of anchor points and holes for fastening points. Before starting to install this type of material, make sure that the door is able to support it. Some doors have a siding so thin that it does not support the weight of the mechanism.
