Closer Sweep and Latch Speed Adjustment
As mentioned on our Door Closer General
almost all closers will have a sweep and latch speed adjustment. The sweep is the movement
of the door from the open position to just before it latches into the frame. The latch is
those last few inches just before the door actually reaches the latch. You can adjust the speed
of either one of these to obtain the results you require. Sometimes you will need the door to
close quickly (not on handicapped doors) and then slow down right before closing to avoid
slamming. Other times you will need the door to close slowly and then speed up at the very end
to ensure that it actually latches.
