NORTON Exhibits Quiet, Low-Energy Operator


MONROE, NC, March 28, 2012 – Norton Door Controls, (, the leading manufacturer of commercial door closers and an ASSA ABLOY Group company, will exhibit its 5900 Series full featured, extremely quiet, low-energy door operator at ISC West, March 28-30, 2012 in Las Vegas. Norton will be located in the ASSA ABLOY Booth (#11065).

A highly effective option for power door control, the 5900 is ideal for moderate to high-traffic door openings in healthcare facilities, schools, offices, public buildings, as well as any application designed to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.). Simple to install and set-up, the 5900 combines one-touch programming with the ability to calibrate door weight, latch and sweep speeds and positioning based on A.D.A. and ANSI Standards.

The 5900 Series features a range of other benefits that enhance both security and ease of operation. With its Lock Circuit Retry, the operator will reverse 10° and try again if the door fails to close initially. The Stop and Stall feature stops the door if it hits an obstruction during the closing cycle and rests against the obstruction until it is removed.

The 5900 uses Electronic Dampening to counteract additional forces applied to the door during opening and closing. Stack Pressure Compensation allows for increased force to overcome minor stack pressures. Astragal Coordination ensures that, with double doors, one door closes before the other. And the 5900 utilizes a Power Latch for increased latching power.

In addition to meeting A.D.A. requirements, the 5900 is UL325, UL10c and ANSI/BHMA A156.19 certified.
