Designed for commercial applications, this hydraulic gate closer offers a phenomenal 250 newtons of hydraulic force, capable of operating controlled closure of metal and wooden gates weighing up to 50kg, measuring up to 1.3 metres wide!
In public and commercial settings, it can be absolutely critical that gates close properly, and safely. With these closers, the closing speed of your gate will be controlled fully during its travel, until the gate is properly shut. The force applied to this closing action is adjustable by using one of the four mounting holes on the gate post bracket. The holes closer in towards the post will create the least forceful closing operation, and using the holes furthest out from the post will give a greater closing force purely based on altering this fulcrum point.
On commercial gates it is not uncommon to find access control devices fitted with electrically operated locks, such as maglocks or solenoid bolts - but all these systems rely on the gate being closed properly, and by using closers not intended for gates, damage can be caused to the gate or the locking devices fitted, or more simply, the locks can fail due to the gate not closing properly or swinging erratically. A controlled hydraulic closer like this however, will aid your access control system in functioning correctly.
Similarly these can be used with most hold-open systems such as magnetic hold-open devices, which again can be a requirement in some commercial settings so these are all things that have been considered and implemented within these closers.
The closing piston comes clamped within a bar with a claw each end, holding the piston at an installable length, so it's important not to remove this clamping bar until instructed to in the fitting instructions!
The footprint of the fixing plates for the gate and the post are both 49x50mm.
