The Australian Lock Company has released a collection of ALCOM Door Closers due to their reputation for being high quality, long lasting and durable. The ALCOM Door Closers suit residential and commercial applications of both interior and exterior doors. Features include a hydraulically operated rack and pinion mechanism, regulated door speed, latching, back check and an optional delayed action mechanism.
The APDC1000PA-3SIL is a first generation door closer which features a 1000-3 parallel arm bracket in silver. The APDC1300SASIL is also a first generation door closer but features a 1300BCSA slide arm door closer in silver with a hold open feature.
ALCOM Door Closers should suit the individual requirements of the door in order to be effective. Customers must consider:
- Strength: High powered door closers are required to securely close doors against air pressure.
- Frame: The door must fit the frame so that the latch bolt can engage the strike.
- Fittings: ALCOM Door Closers require 3 of more ball bearings to allow for increased loading on door hinges.
