Yale Introduces 5800 Series Cast Iron Door Closer



High-Use Closer is Perfect Combination of Reliability, Appearance

and Durability at Economical Price


            BERLIN, CT  – Yale Locks & Hardware (, an ASSA ABLOY Group company and a world leader in door hardware for commercial and residential applications, introduces its 5800 Series Cast Iron Door Closer.  The economically priced 5800 Series combines ease of installation and use with rugged performance and clean design.

            The economically priced 5800 Series combines ease of installation and use with rugged performance and clean design.  The cast iron “large bore” construction of the 5800 Series makes it an excellent solution for high-frequency applications.  This closer is adjustable from size 1 through size 6; consequently, it is ideal for a wide range of commercial applications such as office buildings, retail, assisted living facilities, military/government installations, hospitality, and medical offices.  It can also be easily retrofitted to some existing applications, as it matches a mounting hole pattern that is prevalent in the field.

            Yale’s 5800 Series provides dependable functionality, with features that include adjustments for backcheck, closing speed, latch speed, rack and pinion operation; and a variety of arm options.  These features, coupled with the size adjustability make this the perfect closer for many of the most difficult applications.

            The 5801 door closer is offered with standard non-hold open arms that are “tri-pack” to accommodate three different arm applications; regular, parallel, and top jamb.  The 5811 hold-open arm closers are “tri-packed” as well.  The 5821 heavy duty parallel arm closer incorporates a stop in the arm’s soffit plate creating a “dead stop” feature to control the door.  The 5821T uses the same “dead stop," but also incorporates a “ball and detent” hold-open feature for additional control.  The 5800 Series door also offers a full plastic cover and spring power adjustment.
