Briton 996 Electromagnetic Hold Open/Swing Free Door Closer

The Briton 996 Series is a range of door closers with an integrated electromagnetic hold open mechanism. Each unit can be set to either ‘hold-open’ or ‘swingfree’ operation. The door will hold open in either instance and allow free passage so these units are ideal for busy traffic areas such as corridors. When a fire alarm is activated or there is power failure, the electromagnet disengages and the door closer closes the door in the normal manner to maintain fire safety; preventing the spread of smoke and fire.

  • Available in two model types:

Figure 1/61 – For pull side mounting/transom mounting
Figure 66 – Push Side Mounting

  • Available in three fixed power sizes: EN3, EN4 & EN5
    EN 3 – Suitable for doors up to 60kg/950mm wide
    EN 4 – Suitable for doors up to 80kg/1100mm wide
    EN 5 – Suitable for doors up to 100kg/1250mm wide
  • Adjustable closing speed
  • Adjustable latching action
  • Can be set to either Hold Open mode or Swing Free mode.
  • 24V DC Operating Voltage
  • Available in a range of finishes and cover designs

Hold Open – Held rigidly open until pulled close or electromagnetically released.
Swing Free – Acts as though there is no closer on the door for assisted opening, however, it will close in the event of a fire (if linked to fire alarm).  Please note that when used in this mode, the Briton 996 damping action is ineffective and the door will slam in draughty conditions.


Very good product

Very good product, we use it in a care home setting, we have tried cheaper ones but they are too stiff to open.
And this company has a great customer service, very helpful and polite. Awesome.
