A: Yes, the closer is UL listed and fire rated for 45 minutes on wood doors and 3 hours on metal doors.

Q: Can PERKO POWER™ be used on external doors?

A: Yes, however this decision should be made on site as to whether this is sufficient given the prevailing conditions

Q: Can PERKO POWER™ be used on double-action doors?

A: No. The geometry of a pivoting door differs from a hinged single-action door and is such that the closer would not function properly.
