What is the different between spring hinges and door closers?
They both close the door! Spring hinges slam the door, whereas door closers are designed to close the door slowly and quietly. Spring hinges are often used on apartment doors to try to help ensure that the doors are closed in the event of a fire rather than for security, insulation or any other purpose. Door closers are mostly used on public entrances where doors need to be more surely closed.
