Closing Correctly


To meet ADA standards, interior doors must not swing shut too quickly. It must take at least 5 seconds from the open position for the door to go 12 degrees from the latch. Additionally, doors must not require much pressure to open - in fact, the law is less than 5 pounds of force. Slamming door = deadly! We've seen the unfortunate effects of doors that shut too hard. People have literally had fingers severed when caught in a door that slams.

These modifications are not just for convenience. There are very real legal ramifications. The fix is usually easy - call FedLock! We may only need to make a few adjustments. We are here to help. Give FedLock a call and get those door closer issues resolved fast and permanently!
