GENERAL

This category covers door-closing mechanisms of the self-closing and automatic types for swinging fire doors.

Self-closing door closers of either the surface mounted, floor mounted, concealed, semi-concealed, or spring-hinge type return the door to the closed position when opened.

Automatic door closers of either the surface mounted, concealed, or semi-concealed type employ a hold-open arm with a fusible link, which permits the door to close when a fire occurs. Fusible links on door closers are somewhat slower in action than links located at the top of the opening and at the ceiling.

Swinging-door closers are intended to be installed in accordance with the installation instructions packaged with the device. All closers are investigated for use with doors weighing a maximum of 100 lbs. When a closure is intended for use with a door weighing more than 100 lbs, the installation instructions will specify the maximum door weight. The use of sex bolts or through bolts to mount the closer to the door is required for wood or plastic-faced composite-type fire doors unless an alternate method is identified in the individual door manufacturer's certifications (and installation instructions). The use of sex bolts to mount the closers to the door is required for steel-covered composite type, sheet-metal type or hollow-metal-type fire doors provided without closer reinforcements. The use of steel machine screws to mount the closer to the door is required for steel-covered composite type, sheet-metal type or hollow-metal-type fire doors incorporating steel closer reinforcements. The use of wood screws, sheet-metal screws, sex bolts or through bolts to mount the closer to the door are required for metal-clad (Kalamein) type or wood-core-type fire doors. Some special closers are intended for use only in doors or door frames other than fire doors or fire door frames. The manufacturer of the product should be consulted to determine suitability of mounting the closer in the fire door or fire door frame.

Products identified as having been investigated to ANSI/UL 10C are intended for use on swinging fire doors and have a rating up to and including 3 h, unless otherwise noted in the individual certifications.
