Description

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.

Video Transcript

Hi I am Sophie from Door Controls Direct and today I would like to introduce to you to the Briton 996 electromagnetic door closer. Manufactured by one of the UK’s leading brands – Allegion; the Briton range of door closers have gained an enviable reputation in the market place for both quality and reliability. The 996 is site selectable to provide both a free swing and hold open operation from one unit, this is simply done by moving the position of the bolt fitted in the catch plate. The free swing feature will allow the door to be left open in any position; in effect acting as if no door closer is fitted, and once the fire alarm is activated…the door will close, making it ideal for bedroom doors in care homes. Free-swing functionality is always beneficial in these situations as it makes the door easier to open and close, maintains fire safety and allows for privacy that a hold open application wouldn’t. The hold open feature allows the unit to be held open between 85 and 110 degrees and is ideal for high traffic corridors but again, it needs to be linked to the fire alarm via a relay or interface. This ensures that fire and smoke compartmentation is maintained within your building. The 996 can be fitted in either a pull side Figure 1/61 or a push side Figure 66 configuration model dependant and is available in 3 power sizes to suit 950mm to 1250mm wide and 60Kg to 100kg doors. It’s CE Marked, Certifire Approved and has a 120 minute fire rating for timber doors. It’s extremely durable and that makes it ideal for use in applications such as schools, hospitals and commercial buildings.

Very good product, we use it in a care home setting, we have tried cheaper ones but they are too stiff to open.
