Slamming fire door help needed

Postby Jellybeanmusic » Tue Apr 27, 2021 5:36 pm

Hi, I have a fire door closer on my communal stairs front door which is slamming heavily and loudly.

I’ve had a good look and it appears to only have 1 Allen key hole, and whilst I’ve experimented with turning both ways, nothing is helping.

Does anyone have any guidance about how to best fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi jellybeanmusic
Suggest you fit a new door closer, pick a fire rated one.
