Our Take on Yale ASSA ABLOY Door Closer
The warehouse building where we do a lot of our work was due for new door closers – the set of three aluminum doors around the shop had been in operation for many years and get a lot of use day to day. When researching durable door closers, the Yale ASSA ABLOY Door Closer came through the search engines a few times with favorable reviews, so we decided to give them a try. Some of the more appealing features were the different door types it could be used with and the adjustability.
When the door closers arrived, we jumped at the opportunity to get them installed and try them out. The instructions for installation were easy enough and it did not take long to get the closers installed. While the operation of the pieces were very smooth, we did have a difficult time figuring out the correct positioning and points in order to use the “hold open” feature, which was another reason we chose the Yale ASSA ABLOY Door Closer. After reviewing the directions and doing some troubleshooting, we were able to use the “hold open” feature without any additional issues.
The Yale ASSA ABLOY Door Closer is a great product for industrial applications like warehouses and shops and would be great for home applications such as storm door closers. Aside from the small trouble we ran into with the “hold open” feature, the installation was simple and the doors now open smoothly and close gently, preventing a consistent banging noise of the metal doors as people go in and out. Overall, the Yale ASSA ABLOY Door Closer is a great product that we would recommend.
