A simple mechanical spring gate closer without hydraulic oil designed for lightweight pedestrian gates that has fully adjustable closing strength and speed. The unit has an adjustable double coil spring to close the gate, and a third coil spring, which is also adjustable, that acts as a brake to control the closing speed. In the standard application, the unit acts as the top pivot of the gate. The unit has no hydraulic oil so does not require any adjustment as a result of temperature changes.
It is easy to install and is designed for gates hung on a central pivot. Suits gates up to 1200mm wide, maximum weight 55kg (only 40kg when using optional retrofit bracket).
The closer is designed for external use and has a die cast aluminium cover with a cathaforetic surface treatment salt spray tested for 500 hours. The system has been tested to 200,000 cycles and regulators are made of stainless steel. Operational temperature range from -20°C to +80°C.
The closer’s spindle comes in two mating parts; one is already attached to the underside of the closer but the other must be either welded or screwed to the top of the gate. A locking screw then holds them together.
TYPE A: pintle gate closer functioning as the top bearing, maximum gate weight 55kg.
TYPE B: gate already hung on top and bottom pivots; pintle gate closer functioning as a third point only, maximum gate weight 40kg.
The standard closer kit includes a gate closer with black cover (size 116x66x66mm), slotted L-shaped top supporting bracket (107155-01-0), four fixing bolts to secure closer body to bracket (no bolts included to fix plate to gate post), top spindle and locking screw. The lower pivot is not included but can be supplied as an optional extra (107155-04-0).
The closing springs are effective from a 90° opening angle only. The maximum opening angle is 100° and a limiting door stop should be fitted to prevent the unit from opening beyond this. There is a selectable integrated hold open at 95°.
Closer supplied to suit right hand gates, but can be reversed on site to left hand following instructions supplied. The unit may also be set to act as a gate opener.
