They are also fitted to single doors and double doors. Though over time the units can leak when seals start to fail etc or due to poor maintenance. So if you find sticky residue at the top of the door and frame. This is then in need of changing. Typically there will be an oily residue on the frame or running down the door. If its been leaking for a while then it will be a black tacky looking residue. Other sign will be that the door will slam shut with considerable force.

So its quite important to get these changed and get the doors operating as they should.
