We just added an Excel spreadsheet to the Tools section which contains a door closer footprint comparison chart for surface mounted door closers. There are 39 manufacturers/brands represented across 33 unique footprints and 285 unique models, including discontinued models, within this chart.
While this spreadsheet can be utilized and navigated on a mobile device, it is advisable that you download this file to your desktop and utilize it in that manner.
Footprints are organized by horizontal center-to-center measurements, smallest to largest. If multiple footprints exist with the same horizontal center-to-center measurements, they are further organized by vertical center-to-center measurements, smallest to large. Manufacturers/brands are organized alphabetically.
Column A is freeze paned for the included footprints. Row 1 is freeze paned for the included manufacturer/brands. This means that as you narrow down a specific model/models or manufacturer/brands, this information stays locked in your screen. This allows you to quickly find information.
Manufacturer/brands contain hyperlinks to their respective website or, if present, their web page dedicated to door closers. Models which have available manufacturer’s literature, such as installation instructions or templates, will contain hyperlinks as well. These hyperlinks will direct the user to the respective manufacturer/brand section of this page.
This information was largely compiled by Avi Schenk (BY Locks and Keys, LLC). We provided the formatting and hosting of the manufacturer’s literature. This is considered Version 1.0 and any updates will be made available on this web page.
