HerculiteDoors-blogA Herculite door, or full-glass frameless door, is one of the most attractive entrance doors ever invented. Fully customizable in every way, from glass thickness to handle type to locking mechanism, the Herculite door’s popularity is easy to understand. This post will highlight what to look for to keep any Herculite door operating smoothly.

Common Issues with Herculite Door Operation

With just a bit of preventive and routine cleaning and maintenance, a Herculite door can provide many years of seamless service. In the same way, much of what may interfere with door operation can be quickly fixed or, ideally, prevented.

Loose Handles

When the door handles start to come loose, often all that is needed is a simple adjustment and tightening. But if this simple maintenance task is not attended to, continual jiggling of loose or improperly mounted handles can cause scratches and cracks in the glass that will weaken the overall door structure.

Inaccurate Closer Pressure

If the closer pressure on a Herculite door is too tight, the door may feel like it is impossible to open or close. Conversely, if the pressure is set too low, the door may actually swing open too quickly, hitting employees or customers and causing minor injuries. Ideally, the pressure should be set so it causes no notice at all during opening and closing.

Debris or Obstacles

If trash or debris, decorative planters, doorstops and other obstacles are allowed to accumulate near or under the door itself; these can cause anything from jamming in the locking mechanism to scratches or cracks in the door. It is critical to keep the area around any Herculite door clean and clear so be sure to move any planters or trash cans away from the door.

Professional Assistance

With Herculite doors, as with any door, it is recommended that businesses get them maintained and inspected on a regular basis.
