5200 Series Door Closer

The 5200 Series is meant for high traffic areas. If you need a closer for a low traffic area, please view information about the 5300 series.

A door closer is a mechanical device that closes a door in a controlled manner. It helps prevent the door from standing open, slamming closed, or pulling open in strong winds. The most common examples can usually be found in schools, convenience stores, and a multitude of other smaller businesses and public buildings.

For a heavy duty application there is the 5200 Series Door closer. It is a Grade 1 Hydraulic surface-applied door closer that is ideal for high-use environments. The packaging for this item is a tri-pack meaning it includes the hardware necessary for a Regular Arm, a Parallel Arm, or a Top Jamb Mount Installation. The installation instructions also review how to install each type in the different handing options.

The 5200 closer has a slim line design and it is stocked with a slim line cover. It can be ordered as a standard closer or with a hold open option where the door is capable of being held in an open position. Many local building codes do not allow the installation of a Hold Open Door Closer in a fire rated system. Please make sure to check with your local building codes.
