Below is an Excel spreadsheet which contains a door closer footprint comparison chart for surface mounted door closers. There are 40 manufacturers/brands represented across 34 unique footprints and 289 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 largest. 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. For manufacturer/brand literature, such as installation manuals, related to specific door closer models, please visit our Parallel, Regular, and Top-Jamb Library 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 3.0 and any updates will be made available on this web page.
