Q27 – Model Q27 has a special bottom arm that is shorter and surface mounts. The shorter arm reduces the door load to 350 lbs. maximum, but adds the benefit of being able to remove the closer without completely removing the door. We stock a few Q27 units in 626 finish only.
L27 – L stands for Lead Lined doors. An X-Ray room in a hospital would be a typical use of a lead-lined doors. Many times these doors are thicker than the standard 1-3/4”. You must specify door thickness when ordering these closers. All L27 models are ordered from the factory with a 2 week lead time.
H27 – This model is a heavier duty version of model 27. It uses a different arm, top pivot and bearing package to support doors up to 850 lbs. These are available from the factory with a 5 day lead time.
PH27 – PH stands for Physically Handicapped. The spring inside a PH27 closer is smaller which allows the door to be opened with less force. In short, it allows doors to meet ADA requirements. It is designed for interior doors only.
Be careful before ordering a PH closer. It often causes more problems than it solves. The spring is designed to require 5 lbs. of opening force or less. But closing is the problem. Air pressures can change inside a building making the door hard to latch. Many times the light spring will not latch the door every time if there are air pressure issues.
