Cost of Ownership:
  • Exceeds 25 million cycles (independently verified) for long life; 15-year limited warranty
  • Longer life results in fewer replacements and less material used; covered by SARGENT Endof- Life Recycling Program; Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) available, based on life cycle assessment
  • Adjustable 1-6 spring makes installation selection easier and reduces inventory for customers; Non-handed for installation on right- or left-hand swing doors
Features: 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° door swing can be achieved when door, frame, hardware and arm function do not limit door swing.
  • With few exceptions all series 51 door closers are nonhanded and can be installed on either right- or left-hand swing doors. Pinion shaft extends vertically through the closer body in both directions. Some options, (such as Parallel Rigid Hold Open Arms) will require that the hand of the closer be specified.
  • 51 comes with screws, brackets & soffit plate to allow for regular, top jamb, & parallel arm installations.
Sweep Speed Control Valve:
  • Allows adjustment of door’s speed from the door's full open position down to approximately 10° from the closed position.
Latch Speed Control Value:
  • Allows adjustment of door speed from approximately 10° down to the door’s fully closed position.
Adjustable Backcheck Cushion Valve:
  • Provides control of the door in the opening cycle, beginning at approximately 75° of door opening. It slows/ cushions the door opening, when the door is forcibly opened beyond its pre-adjusted opening speed limits.
Closer Fluid:
  • All door closers are supplied with a temperature stable, multi-viscosity fluid. This fluid will permit the door closer to perform within a wide temperature range: from very high to as low as -40°F.
  • These closers carry a limited fifteen-year warranty against defects and a limited lifetime warranty on the aluminum housing.
