A door closer is a mechanical device designed to close a door in a controlled manner, mechanically or automatically. It will enable the door to close gently, but firmly enough to latch. As the door opens the arm is pulled along, expanding the spring or piston, which on release, is slowly returned to its natural state, pulling the door closed again. ‘Delayed action’ door closers allow the door to remain open for a specified amount of time. The speed can be adjustable, allowing safe passage for wheelchair users or personnel carrying bulky items or luggage. There is often a further option of an adjustable latching speed for the final few degrees of closing.
They are called – door closers! Although they can be referred to as door openers, too.

The main function of the arm is to turn the pinion, which pushes the spring back, creating the tension needed to close the door once released. Door closers with regular arms are usually mounted on the pull side of the door. These allow doors to open until 180 degrees. This type of arm will more noticeably stick out perpendicular to the door and frame. Parallel arm door closers are less noticeable as the closer body is installed on the push side of the door and the arm is installed to the soffit on the head of the frame. The parallel arm folds in so it lies against the face of the door.
