Designed for heavy-duty applications, these models provide long-lasting protection for doors, frames, hardware and surrounding walls or obstructions. They are compatible with most door closers and feature an extremely reliable Hold-Open function and rugged shock absorption. All models feature jointed-arm design and centered jamb bracket.

81H Series Hold-Open

(Suffix H) The Hold-Open model should be used when doors will need to be held open at a preset position for an extended period. This allows unobstructed traffic flow. Hold-Open model provides a selective Hold-Open function. A simple turn of the thumbturn disables the Hold-Open function, allowing the unit to serve as a shock absorbing stop.

81S Series Stop-Only

(Suffix S) When the Hold-Open function is not required, the Stop-Only models provide the same effective door control, without the Hold-Open feature. The Stop-Only model may be used on fire doors.


Suffix J (Angle Jamb Bracket):

An option on the 81 series is the "J" angle jamb bracket, which converts the standard model to hinge side mounting (on Stop-Only models) or to flush transom mounting. The angle jamb bracket affixes to the standard jamb bracket. If ordered with unit add suffix J. If need separately order 81J by finish needed.

Suffix Soc (Pin-In-Socket Security Screws):

A screw package with pin-in-socket screws for mounting the door bracket and the jamb bracket is provided instead of the standard screw package.

Suffix Shim (Blade Stop Shims):

  • Shim kits are available in 3 sizes
  • 81 SHIM1 is a¼" Shim Kit
  • 81 SHIM2 is a½" Shim Kit
  • 81 SHIM3 is a¾" Shim Kit
  • If ordered with overhead, add suffix SHIM (1, 2 or 3). If needed separately order 81 SHIM 1, 2, or 3 by finish needed.
