Aluminum Alloy Housing: Closer bodies are constructed of a special aluminum alloy, carefully selected to accommodate interaction with steel components and operating conditions.
Rack & Pinion Operation: Provides a smooth constant control of the door through its full opening and closing cycle. 180-Degree door swing can be achieved when door, frame, hardware and arm function do not limit door swing.
Non-handed: 1601/1601BC closers are non-handed and can be installed on either right- or left-hand swing doors. Pinion shafts extend vertically through the closer body in both directions.
Sweep Speed Control Valve: Allows adjustments of door speed from the door's full position down to approximately 10-degrees from the closed position.
Latch Speed Control Valve: Allows adjustments of door speed from approximately 10-degrees down to the door's fully closed position.
Tri-Style: All 1600 Series Closers come with screws, brackets & soffit plate to allow for regular, top jamb & parallel arm installations.
Adjustable Backcheck Cushion Valve: Provides control of the door in the opening cycle, beginning at approximately 75-degrees of door opening. It slows/cushions the door opening, when the door is forcibly opened beyond its pre-adjusted opening speed limits.
Door Closer Cover: All Norton 1600 Series Closers come without a cover. See "Related Items" above for 1600 Series Cover.
Hold Open Feature (Optional): Range of 90-180 degrees based on template location and mechanical adjustment.
