A door closer is a mechanical device that closes a door, in general after someone opens it, or after it was automatically opened. Door closers are common in commercial doors where they play a role in maintaining average cooling temperatures. They are also important on fire doors, which need to be closed in case of fire, to help prevent the spread of fire and smoke.
Surface-mounted door closers come in four variations: slide-track arm, regular arm surface mounted, parallel arm surface mounted, and top jamb mounted. Overhead door closers are typically surface mounted, some manufacturers offer concealed models too. Such closers mount inside a pocket in the door frame or are mounted in the floor directly under the pivot point and are completely concealed. Closers often feature dampers that offer control over the closing force and speed.
There is also the concealed, jamb-mounted door closer, which fits in morticed recesses in the door and door frame and is totally concealed when the door is closed. These are available in controlled and uncontrolled versions, selected according to the application for which they are intended.
An automatic door closer (more often called a "door opener") opens the door itself, typically under the control of a push button, motion detector or other device, and then closes it as well.
