Guide rail door closer fixing in Figures 1, 61 & 66
   
Figure 1 fixing - Hinge side of door

This is the most common method of fixing a door closer. The door closer is fixed to the hinge side of the door (the side on which you can see the knuckle of the hinges when the door is closed). The door closer is attached to the door and the arm is attached to the frame above.

Note: The standard "hinge side" door closer and arm are required.
   
Figure 61 fixing - Opposite hinge side of door

With this fixing method the door closer is attached to the frame with the arm attached to the door. For this fixing method the door closer is fitted to the opposite hinge side (the side the hinge knuckles cannot be seen when the door is closed). Normally used for outward opening external doors where the door closer needs to be inside the building to protect it from vandalism and the weather.

Note: The standard "hinge side" door closer and arm are required.
   
Figure 66 fixing - Opposite hinge side of door

In this fixing method the door closer is fitted to the opposite hinge side (the side the hinge knuckles cannot be seen when the door is closed). The door closer is attached to the door and the guide rail & arm is fitted underneath the door frame head. The arm is then attached to the parallel arm bracket.

Note: For this fitting an "opposite hinge side" door closer and arm is required. It may also be necessary to use an L shaped mounting bracket if the door reveal is more that 40mm deep.
