A floor spring
is a mechanical door closing device mostly used for glass doors along
with patch fitting. Floor springs are mostly used where both pull and
push movement is required. The most prominent area where floor springs
are used is in Interior doors of a Business park, Malls, Hospital
There are many different kinds of floor spring like
Heavy Duty Floor Spring, Light Duty Floor Spring,
Single Cylinder Floor Spring and Double Cylinder
Floor Spring and they have three must-have features in common.
First, Floor Springs are suitable for aesthetic door systems. They
must be virtually invisible not to ruin the general look of the whole
door. Because the aesthetic factor is necessary, people produce many
different types of floor springs to adapt with different types of
doors. They can change the material, size or color to achieve a final
purpose: its invisibility. However, their features also must comply
with standards about size, material to ensure safety.
Floor springs must be suitable for every type of door. There are some
materials people usually use to make doors. Glass doors are seemed to
be very popular with people. Every house, closed-restaurant, shop,
kiosk, supermarket, mall, … uses glass as a popular material for its
door system. Besides, we can see that wood is also a favored kind of
door material. Another kind of material is Aluminum. Aluminum is a
popular, affordable and durable material in use for doors. Nowadays,
many researches show that Fiberglass can be the most ideal material.
Evidence indicates that doors made from fiberglass have scratch
resistance capability for many years. Thus, aesthetic will be enhanced
Floor springs are especially ideal for big-sized doors. These doors
are almost heavy and big. People need more energy to push or pull
these doors than smaller doors using door handles. Therefore, selected
floor springs must have certain requirements about closing force,
closing speed and latch action. To ensure adaptability of floor
springs, all these numbers must be adjustable. Besides, they also must
comply with pre-registered standards guaranty the quality as well as
Customer's budget always is an important thing. HeleH door lock
has two types of HeleH floor springs which are under a suitable price.
The given price is not including installation fee yet.
Another similar device is called door closers. A
door closer, very
simply, is a type of hardware that is used to close a door either
mechanically or automatically. It has developed into many different
types like Heavy Duty Door Closer, Economical Door Closer
, Overhead Door Closer and Concealed Door Closer
Most of the time, when we think of a door closer in the commercial
door business, we think of a surface mounted door closer that is
installed to the door and frame with fasteners. There is an arm that
connects the body of the door closer to the “shoe”. The body of the
door closer can be attached to either the door or the frame, depending
on circumstances at the door, and the shoe will connect to the frame
or door (opposite of how the closer body is installed). So if the door
closer body is installed to the door, then the door closer shoe will
be installed to the frame, and vice versa.
The main benefit of using a commercial door closer on a door is the
range of controls available to adjust the swing and motion of the door
when it is used. These can help a building stay secure, reduce air
flow and save on air conditioning, and are used on fire rated doors to
help prevent the spread of fire and smoke by closing the door behind
occupants as they escape a building.
Using spring hinges as door closers is an economical option when
budget is a concern. These aren’t as fully adjustable as standard
door closer hardware. Spring hinges can be tightened to create more
tension and ensure latching or they can be loosened to slow the swing
speed of the door. Besides this, there is not a lot of adjustments
that can be made.
