There are many different kinds of floor spring like Heavy Duty Floor Spring, Light Duty Floor Spring, Single Cylinder Floor Spring and Double Cylinder Floor Spring and they have three must-have features in common.
First, Floor Springs are suitable for aesthetic door systems. They must be virtually invisible not to ruin the general look of the whole door. Because the aesthetic factor is necessary, people produce many different types of floor springs to adapt with different types of doors. They can change the material, size or color to achieve a final purpose: its invisibility. However, their features also must comply with standards about size, material to ensure safety.
Floor springs must be suitable for every type of door. There are some materials people usually use to make doors. Glass doors are seemed to be very popular with people. Every house, closed-restaurant, shop, kiosk, supermarket, mall, … uses glass as a popular material for its door system. Besides, we can see that wood is also a favored kind of door material. Another kind of material is Aluminum. Aluminum is a popular, affordable and durable material in use for doors. Nowadays, many researches show that Fiberglass can be the most ideal material. Evidence indicates that doors made from fiberglass have scratch resistance capability for many years. Thus, aesthetic will be enhanced maximally.
Floor springs are especially ideal for big-sized doors. These doors are almost heavy and big. People need more energy to push or pull these doors than smaller doors using door handles. Therefore, selected floor springs must have certain requirements about closing force, closing speed and latch action. To ensure adaptability of floor springs, all these numbers must be adjustable.

Customer's budget always is an important thing. HeleH door lock has two types of HeleH floor springs which are under a suitable price. The given price is not including installation fee yet.
Another similar device is called door closers. A door closer, very simply, is a type of hardware that is used to close a door either mechanically or automatically. It has developed into many different types like Heavy Duty Door Closer, Economical Door Closer, Overhead Door Closer and Concealed Door Closer.
Most of the time, when we think of a door closer in the commercial door business, we think of a surface mounted door closer that is installed to the door and frame with fasteners. There is an arm that connects the body of the door closer to the “shoe”. The body of the door closer can be attached to either the door or the frame, depending on circumstances at the door, and the shoe will connect to the frame or door (opposite of how the closer body is installed). So if the door closer body is installed to the door, then the door closer shoe will be installed to the frame, and vice versa.
The main benefit of using a commercial door closer on a door is the range of controls available to adjust the swing and motion of the door when it is used. These can help a building stay secure, reduce air flow and save on air conditioning, and are used on fire rated doors to help prevent the spread of fire and smoke by closing the door behind occupants as they escape a building.
Using spring hinges as door closers is an economical option when budget is a concern. These aren’t as fully adjustable as standard door closer hardware. Spring hinges can be tightened to create more tension and ensure latching or they can be loosened to slow the swing speed of the door. Besides this, there is not a lot of adjustments that can be made.
