Q: What part of a door closer is the mounting plate?

July 28, 2011 by  

A: The mounting plate, for clarification, is a thin metal plate the same size as the body of the closer.  It is good to use one for example on a uPVC door because it has lots of pre-drilled holes to enable a really firm positioning before attaching the door closer body to the plate through the ready tapped holes.  Because uPVC doors and frames are often hollow in section, we recommend drilling and fixing through to the other side, reinforcing the fixing with large washers or even metal plates.  (You can paint over them in white to obscure them.)
