PDQ’s new door closer accessories cushion closing, ease field installation

New devices keep doors closing gently though hundreds of thousands of cycles

Two new products from PDQ Manufacturing offer notable improvements in door closer hardware.

The new SCS Series Spring Cushion Stop from PDQ helps reduce door and frame wear and tear. When the door is almost fully opened, about to back-check, before it reaches the hard stop, one of the parallel arms begins to engage the spring cushion stop. As the door continues through back-check to full stop, the spring cushion stop absorbs much of the impact force usually transferred to the hard stop. It’s an option add that can be included with any of PDQ’s 7100, 5500, 5100 and 3100 Series Door Closers, parallel arm mount.

For new installations, specify Door Saver (option SCS) or Door Saver Arms with Hold Open (option SCSHO). For existing installations, using an existing threaded hole for the bumper stop, it also makes a useful field retrofit to existing door saver parallel arm mounts.

PDQ's Spring Cushion is manufactured with investment cast stainless steel for long-term corrosion resistance and durability. Available in two spring sizes to accommodate 3 ft. or 4 ft. doors, it has been extensively tested in high-abuse situations and far exceeds the most demanding field conditions. For 3 ft. doors, order part number 999032-01. For 4 ft. doors, order part number 99032-02. Handing is determined in the field, is field reversible for LH and RH doors.

Another door closer improvement: PDQ’s new Non-Handed Track Arm Mount incorporates a single forged main arm for installation in high-use, high-abuse door applications. This product simplifies field installation, and its low profile helps prevent damage. It’s designed for push side and pull side applications.

This product is available as an option for all PDQ Series Door Closers including the 7100, 5500, 5300 and 3100 series. Specify TA for Track Arm, or TAHO for Track Arm with Hold Open.
