Featuring heavy-duty construction for superior strength and wear resistance, the Sargent 351 Series Powerglide® Door Closer is ideally suited for highly trafficked environments like schools, healthcare facilities, and office and commercial buildings. With a full complement of arm types and front-facing valves, the 351 series can be easily installed and maintained—for interior and exterior applications.

Things to Consider

1. Size and Weight of Door

The 351 Door Closers is non-sized so that closing force can be adjusted in the field to accommodate various door sizes and weights.

2. Interior Application

The standard application is the most efficient in terms of power and control.

3. Exterior Application

The top jamb, corner bracket or parallel arm application should be used. Exterior doors require greater closing forces because of draft conditions. Always place the closers out of the weather.

4. Degree of Opening

Proper arm and position on the door is most
important to permit the door to open far
enough to allow adequate traffic flow.

5. Function

Closers are available with hold-open or positive stop arms.

6. Special Condition

Consult factory when special hinges, overhead holders or other specialized hardware is used.
