Norton Door Controls offers a comprehensive line of door controls designed and manufactured to ensure superior performance and reliability.

Founded in 1880 by Lewis C. Norton, Norton Door Check Company began manufacturing and marketing the first practical commercial door closers. Though cumbersome, his first door closers were effective devices which permitted the adjustment of the door's sweep speed.

In later years, Norton Door Controls refined the rack and pinion closer and the concept of valve controlled backcheck for hydraulic door closers. Along the way there have been a variety of other innovations, including aluminum alloy body, narrow style, non-handed closers, adjustable backcheck, speed adjustments and special application arms.

The door closer's wide range of adjustable closing power permits use in the most demanding situations. The efficiency and flat power curve comply with the opening force requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

These door closers come standard with adjustable sweep speed and latch speed, closing control and adjustable backcheck cushioning in the opening cycle. The unobtrusive design is a good choice for architects and designers.
Overhead Concealed Closer image

Overhead Concealed Closer - 7900 Series

Overhead concealed closers provide an aesthetically appealing way to close a door. In situations where a closer is needed but concealment in the frame header is required or desired, the Norton® 7900 closer is the ideal solution for door control. Once installed, only the solid one-piece arm is visible when the door is open; therefore, this unit provides a high degree of vandal resistance. When the door is closed, the closer, arm and slide track are fully concealed. For applications where concealment is required and security is the main concern, the 7970 should be used.

The 7900 overhead closers are best suited for high-profile applications such as office buildings or conference centers. The 7970 security closers offer the necessary concealment and tamper resistance required in detention and psychiatric facilities. Used in conjunction with the door position switch (DPS) they provide the ability to monitor door status remotely.
Holders image

Holders - No. 2

The Norton No. 2 Overhead Door Holder holds open the inactive leaf of a pair of doors when the full opening is required. This can be used in place of a door closer when the functionality and cost is not warranted. It can also be installed on doors with a closer when hold open functionality is needed separate from the door closer.

Electromechanical Closers - 7100SZ Series SafeZone®

Designed with safety in mind, SafeZone® takes door closers to the next level. SafeZone uses a multi-point, electromechanical closer and a programmable motion sensor. When the door is opened manually, SafeZone senses movement in the door opening and stops the door from closing. When movement is no longer detected, the adjustable setting times out and the door closes.

SafeZone detects movement in both directions, allowing one person or a stream of people to travel through an opening, making it ideal for theaters, hospitals, doctor's offices and elementary schools.
