Why are door Closers necessary?

Door closers are ideal for doors in a facility that demands reliability and self-closing doors. A door with a properly installed and adjusted door closer will always open and close at a controlled speed preventing injury to passerby's and structural damage to the door and its surroundings.

What are the benefits of a self-closing door? 

Safety:

Closed doors provide security to buildings and rooms you want to protect. Doors to protected areas will always close up. 

Energy Saver:

Closed doors save energy by keeping the air-conditioned or heated inside, making it very practical for exterior doors of buildings and facilities. 

Privacy Control:

A closed-door minimizes sound intrusion and eavesdropping through open doors. 

Fire Doors:

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) requires that any fire-listed door must be self-closing to stop the spread of fire.
