The LCN 1260 series door coser is the most recommended automatic door closer in Toronto. We at Spadina Security often install this product with the pride of knowing that in fifteen years we can return to the same door and find it closing properly.
Model LCN 1261 door closer is what we call a "professional quality" door closer. To the building owner or property manager this means that this product will behave as you expect it to. We find that professional quality locksmith products work well for decades.
There has been a flood of inferior copies on the market lately. We have tested these "off-shore" door closers and found them to be lacking. We do not recommend aluminum door closers because they do not stand up to the day-to-day use that a door closer is required to handle.
The LCN 1260 series is made from cast iron. This is a robust material. Cast iron door closers can function with little maintenance for fifteen to twenty-five years.
When choosing a door closer consider the history of the company who makes it. LCN was started by Lewis C. Norton in the 1870's and is still recommended by professional locksmiths today. Especially your professional locksmith, Spadina Security.
