Floor Spring WAB 180

For particularly heavy doors up to 600 kg

The DICTATOR WAB 180 floor spring has for decades consistently proven its high reliability – particularly on heavy entrance doors such as those in churches, museums, public buildings etc.

Many years of experience with door closers have resulted in a very sturdy and reliable design. Its special features include its high load capacity and long life.

The fact that the complete interior of the floor spring is filled with oil of low viscosity and a heavy duty axle bearing carries the load of the floor spring spindle, makes the WAB 180 suitable for doors up to 600 kg. It also guarantees its proper function during frequent operation and varying temperatures.

The closing speed can be continuously adjusted. A safety valve prevents vital parts of the floor spring from breaking, even when the door is forced shut.

All floor springs come with an embedding box. Different cover plates, pivot hinges and straps, either for steel or wooden doors, are available.

The WAB 180 is also available as a mere floor support for heavy doors where the closing function is not needed.

Product Information

The WAB 180 floor spring is available in five different forces (size II – V for doors up to 500 kg, size VI up to 600 kg). In your order please indicate the dimensions and the approximate weight of the door and the opening direction according to DIN.

The following table will help you to choose the correct size for your application. All data refer to a door height of minimum  1.75 m and maximum  2.5 m, without wind load. In case of exterior doors exposed to wind or interior doors in surroundings with high pressure differences, please contact our technical customer service (anfrage@dictator.de).

DIN type door WAB 180Depending on the opening of the door you either need the right or left type of the WAB 180 floor spring. The designation DIN right or left indicates the opening direction of the door when looked at from the side to which it opens. The right door leaf in the illustration shows a door DIN right.

Usually the floor spring is installed parallel but shifted sideways to the door. But with the accessories straight strap and as upper hinge the swing hinge it is also possible to place its axle directly below the door.

Please make sure that there is installed a limit stop in the closed position of the door.

For double-leaf door installations there is needed a separate door sequence control.

Adjustment WAB 180
Adjusting the Closing Speed

On the surface of the WAB 180 floor spring, on the side opposite to the axle, is a centrally located slotted screw (adjusting screw) (2).

Below the cover screw with seal ring you will find the grub screw for adjusting the closing speed. For this purpose you have to completely unscrew the cover screw. Then you can adjust the closing speed by turning the grub screw with an approx. 5 mm wide slotted screwdriver:
Turning clockwise: reduces the closing speed
Turning anti-clockwise: increases the closing speed

Procedure During the New Installation
When mounting a new floor spring you should proceed as follows:

Remove the cover screw of the adjusting screw (2). Untighten the screw for filling in the oil (1).
Turn the adjusting screw one revolution to the left, anti-clockwise.
Then open and close the mounted door two or three times.
To adjust the closing speed turn the adjusting screw to the right (clockwise).
Finally screw in the cover screws so that they again shut tightly.

If there occur any problems during adjusting the correct closing speed, the above mentioned procedure has to be repeated in order to remove trapped air bubbles from the floor spring. It is important that after each regulation procedure the cover screws are screwed in so firmly that they shut tightly. Otherwise oil could leak.

NOTE: The adjustable damping of the closing speed starts at a closing angle of 45°. A special model is available that offers an adjustable damping of the closing speed during the complete closing.
