ABH 1000 Series Concealed Mount, Heavy Duty Overhead Holder - Friction

The ABH 1000 Series with Friction Function – Most commonly used on doors without closers. Door will stay held open at the selected degree of opening. Friction tension adjustment screw controls the amount of resistance when opening and closing the door.

Overhead holders and stops are used to prevent unnecessary damage to the door, frame, wall and other door hardware by limiting the degree of door swing. They are installed at the top of a door opening; therefore, out of the general reach and not a tripping hazard. Whether for commercial or residential application, the use of overhead holders and stops extends the life of the opening and other hardware.

This ABH Mfg. product is similar to products from Rixson, Sargent, Dorma, Glynn Johnson, and Rockwood. See the Cross Reference Chart in the ABH Catalog (under Downloads, below) for more information.
