Individual and personalised technical advice

How Do Door Checks Work?

  1. They are mounted in the upper center of the door. The hook is placed above the damper on the door frame. The hook pushes the roller leaver downwards when the door opens which tensions the spring.
  2. When closing the roller lever moves upwards and the door is hydraulically dampened. Door checks feature progressive damping.
  3. Finally, the door damper draws the door completely shut and the force of the spring keeps it closed.
