Sargent 1250 and 1251 door closer replaced by the Sargent 281

If you have an older Sargent 1250 and 1251 door closer they have  been replaced by the Sargent 281.  In the 1990′s Sargent discontinued the 1250 and 1251′s, but they came out the Sargent 281 Door Closers.  The 281′s will work in place of the 1250/1251′s without having to re drill holes, or change the templating (closer placement on the door).  At first they had two models the 280 and the 281.  The 280 was a door closer that worked larger exterior doors and had more power in the spring.   The 281 was for interior doors and was ADA compatible, due to the smaller spring.  In the last few years they have modified the closer and now is it just known as the 281, which will cover all doors, and can be adjusted to be ADA compliant.  The hole spacing on the 281 is 1″ x 10-3/8″ or 2-3/8″ x 8″ on center.  This door closer is sent out Tri-Packed, which means it will work on the push, pull or top jamb, and is non handed.  This closer also offers a 25 year warranty.   The 281 Sargent Door Closer can be ordered on our website.  We also offer replacement arms and brackets.
