COR Series Coordinator (or Door Selector) - Carry Bars & Accessories

COR Series Bar Coodinators

COR series coordinators are designed for use on pairs of single action doors where leaves must close in the correct order. This type of door arrangement is often referred to as a rebated pair of doors.

Rebated Pair & Overlapping Astragal

The rebate may be a part of the door construction (commonly found on pairs of timber doors) or it may be a ‘plant-on’ rebate or ‘astragal’ introduced as a lock protector or a weather strip. In each instance, in order to effect correct door control, it is necessary always to ensure that the active leaf (or first opening leaf) is the second leaf to close.

Where To Use

Coordinators should be specified for use on all rebated pairs of doors where door closers are controlling both leaves and where it is possible to open either leaf independently or both leaves simultaneously. Doors of this type, not controlled with coordinators, have the potential to close in the incorrect order, leaving one door slightly ajar and (usually) both doors insecure (i.e. unlocked). In particular, exterior (or perimeter) doors, fitted with escape hardware, are vulnerable if they double as access control doors and are necessarily equipped with door closers*.

* Doors fitted with surface overhead door closers require special attention ensuring that the two types of hardware do not clash or impede one another in their normal operation.

Features & Benefits

  • The COR Series Coordinators are designed for use on pairs of doors when one door needs to close before the other
  • All COR units function easily. The active door lever, located nearest to the active stop, holds the active door open until the trigger mechanism is released by the closing of the inactive leaf.
  • All COR units may not function correctly with swingclear hinges
  • All COR units are equipped with an adjustable override feature which allows the active door to close under extreme pressure
  • All COR units are compatible with Flush Bolts
  • The COR Series is available in five sizes for variable door opening widths
  • The COR Series does not cover the entire length of the stop, so a FL filler bar can be provided to maintain architecturally clean lines
  • COR Series Coordinator Channels and FL fillers are made of aluminum
  • Optional Filler Bars: FL20 - 508mm, FL32 - 813mm and FL44 - 1118mm, available to maintain clean line
  • Optional Mounting Brackets available: MB1, MB2, MB1F, MB2F and MB3F for other stop applied hardware

FL Series Filler Bar

  • Filler bars are used where the COR channel does not extend across the entire width of the pair of doors, i.e. jamb to jamb on the push side face.
  • FL Filler Bars are available in three sizes to suit variable frame openings
  • FL Filler Bars are constructed from hollow aluminium channel and are furnished normally in a US28 powder coated silver finish. They are also available in US26D satin chrome and 315AN black anodized aluminium
  • FL Filler Bars are cut on site to suit the opening
    Dimensions: 41mm wide x 16mm deep x Ordered Length.

Arriving at a Specification

Correct Specification & Ordering

Start with the active leaf width (X)

Next consider the overall opening between stops (F)

Preferably, the coordinator would equal the active door width (X) + approximately 1/2 the inactive door width (Y)

Keep in mind the coordinator must be at least 152mm longer than the active door width (X) and less than the overall frame opening between stops (F)

Example:

Active (X) & inactive (Y) leaf widths 762mm each with 16mm stops

Overall frame opening between stops (F) = 1492mm

Recommended Coordinator: COR42 with FL20 Filler Bar

(See COR Series - Data Sheet (part 1) for more dimensional detail). 

CB1 - Carry Bar

Carry bars are a necessary part of any specification including coordinators - where it is possible to open the inactive leaf before the active leaf. Fixed to the inactive leaf, the carry bar straddles the meeting stile and pushes the active leaf open at the same time as the inactive leaf. At a point just before the nylon roller leaves the active leaf the coordinator is able to hold the active leaf ajar - ensuring both doors close in the correct order.

CB1 Carry Bar

  • Used when it is possible for the inactive door to be opened before the active door
  • Prevents damage to the doors and other hardware
  • Nylon roller insures quiet and efficient operation
  • Non-handed
  • All-steel construction
  • Standard sex bolts for mounting

Often, where coordinators are used in conjunction with surface overhead door closers to the stop face (push side) of pairs of doors, additional brackets must be introduced.

MB1 and MB2 Mounting Brackets

MB1 Bracket       MB2 Bracket

  • Allows stop mounted hardware to be properly installed without damaging the COR coordinator, such as a parallel arm closer or a non-fire-rated surface vertical rod strike
  • Stop mounted hardware will need to be lowered to compensate for the height of the coordinator and mounting bracket
  • MB mounting brackets are made of aluminum

MB1F, MB2F and MB3F Fire Rated Mounting Brackets

  • Allows for fire-rated stop mounted hardware (North America only) to be properly installed without damaging the COR Coordinators, such as fire-rated surface vertical rod exit device strikes.
  • Latch will need to be lowered to compensate for the height of the coordinator and mounting bracket
  • Mounting brackets are made of steel
