Rixson Floor Closers Guide
Parts: We stock floor closer parts such as cover plates, replacement arms, etc.

New Installation: When ordering a floor closer for a new installation pay close attention to several points. First, Rixson floor closers use a spindle height that requires the door to have an unusual undercut. Quite often doors will be ordered with a standard undercut only to discover during installation that the bottom arm is in the wrong position.
Be sure to read the installation instructions before placing an order.
As an alternative, Dorma floor closers have a unique feature that allows you to change the spindle in the field. This eliminates the nasty surprise of having the wrong spindle height. Should you discover the problem during installation then simply order a new spindle and change it in the field. So keep this in mind when selecting a floor closer brand.

Replacement Closers: You may order a replacement body. Do so by ordering the model with the ”LAP” (less all parts) designation. Should you need help determining your model, click on the link below and look for the PDF file from Rixson called Indentifying Your Model.

Product Variations

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.
