The Yale 3000 Series Architectural Door Closers

The Yale Grade 1 Door closers 3000 Series architectural door closers offer the perfect combination of reliability, appearance, and durability in today’s market. With features such as staked valves, self-drilling, and tapping screws, rack and pinion design, precise valve adjustment, and a complete range of arm and cover options, the Yale 3000 can meet virtually any application challenge. Two popular Yale closers are the 3301 and 3501. Both are excellent for different applications.

Yale Locks 3301 Closer

Regular Arm

This is the only pull side application where a double lever arm is used. It is the most power-efficient application for a door closer. Sufficient frame, door and/or ceiling clearance must be considered.

Top Jamb

For efficiency reasons, this application provides the best alternative to the regular arm application. There must be sufficient frame face and/or ceiling clearance for this application. It requires a top rail on the door of just 2-1/4″
(57mm). This application provides the best door control for doors in exterior walls that swing out of a building.

Parallel Arm

This application provides the most appealing design appearance for a surface-mounted door closer having a double lever arm. This also makes it beneficial in vandalism-prone areas. It is on the push side of the door and the arm assembly extends almost parallel to the door. In the closed position, there is very little or no hardware projecting beyond the frame face in most situations.

Yale Locks 3501 Closer

Regular Arm

Since the arm assembly projects directly out from the
frame, this application may present an aesthetics issue or
be prone to vandalism.

Jamb Arm

The entire door closer and arm assembly project from
the frame, similar to the regular arm application, where
matters of appearance and malicious abuse can be of
concern. Consideration must be given to depth of reveal.

Parallel Arm

Due to the geometry of the arm, it is approximately 25% less power-efficient than a regular arm application. The entire closer and arm assembly are mounted below the frame stop. Top rail clearance dimensions will vary based on the type of cover used.

What is the maximum degree of door swing for any door operator?
The maximum degree of door swing is dependent on the operator arm and mounting. Usually, this varies from 90 degrees to 105 degrees.

Where can the Norton 5845 Sqpb and 5845 Npb low energy operator be used?
Operators can be used in a variety of locations, such as a restroom, exam room, waiting room, main entrance, and reception room.

What operators do you recommend for high traffic openings?
Our 6000 series and 6300 Series operators are heavy-duty units designed for rigorous, high-use applications.

Do you have touchless sensors?
Yes! The NORTON 5845 Series Hands-Free Kits combine a wave-to-open switch with the 5845 power operator to open the door and provide a ‘clean’ exit without touching the hardware. However, these kits aren’t just for bathroom doors. They can also be used to provide easy access to non-fire rated examination room doors and doors in laboratories or rehabilitation facilities.

What is the guideline for push-button actuators for 5845 Norton low energy operators?
According to the 2007 edition of ANSI/BHMA A156.19 – American National Standard for Power Assist and Low Energy Power Operated Doors requires low energy operators to be initiated by a “knowing act”, which is described as “consciously initiating the powered opening of a low-energy door using acceptable methods, including wall- or jamb-mounted contact switches such as push plates; fixed non-contact switches; the action of manual opening (pushing or pulling) a door; and controlled access devices such as keypads, card readers, and key switches.”

  • The guidelines for mounting actuators or push buttons are:
    • Located within 1-5 feet from the door, never more than 12 feet.
    • Remain accessible from the swing side when the door is opened.
    • It cannot be located in a position where the user would be in the path of a moving door.
    • Must be mounted so the user is in full sight of the door when activating the switch.
    • Must have a minimum installation height of 34” and a maximum 48” off the floor
