Learning Objectives - After reading this article, you should have learned about:

  • Maintenance on doors and their closing forces is required by code
  • Maintenance must include replacement of damaged components and proper adjustment, and be performed at adequate frequency
  • Door operators are designed with a means by which to adjust both closing force and closing speed
  • Heavy hoistway doors(typically, cladded doors in lobbies) need a second speed control, which is provided by all modern door operators. Where a second speed control is not provided for a heavy lobby door, the speed of the heavy door must be adjusted to meet its kinetic energy requirements; consequently, all the other doors will operate at that slower speed
