Application and Products Standard


1. American National Standards Institute (ANSI) ANSI / BHMA A156.4, UL10C 3 hours fire rating

Door closers are generally classified in an ANSI Grade or Duty Cycle. This is to assist with choosing the right closer for the right application. They are 3 classes as below:

ANSI Grade 1 - 2 million cycles required, best for medium to high traffic such as a store entrance, office or school. All of our American Style Door Closer are certified with Grade 1.

ANSI Grade 2 - 1 million cycles required, best for medium traffic such as a small office, or public restroom.

ANSI Grade 3 - 500,000 cycles required, best for low traffic such as closets, or residential applications.

Select the right grade: Door closer is typically listed as Grade 1, 2 or 3. Choose Grade 1 door closer for commercial applications or for doors subject to high levels of abuse. Grade 2 door closer can be used for light commercial and standard residential doors. Grade 3 door closer should be used on light residential applications, such as guest rooms or storage rooms. All of our UL Listed Door Closer meet the standard of Underwriter’s Laboratories.
