Pemko Z-Brackets for Mounting Additional Hardware

Bringing Gaskets and Door Closers Together

Pemko Z-Brackets for Mounting Additional Hardware

The Pemko door closer/strike plate mounting Z-brackets enable soffit-mounted perimeter gaskets and parallel arm door closers or strike plates to be used in the same opening.

When mounted separately, door closers and soffit-mounted perimeter gaskets occupy the same space on a frame's header. Z-brackets make this installation easy. Simply install the perimeter gasket in its desired position, attached a bracket over it, then mount the door closer arm bracket to the Pemko Z-bracket.

Strike plates can also be mounted to these Z-brackets. This eliminates the need to cut or shorten the perimeter gasket around the strike plate and allows for a continuous seal along the jambs.

Combine these Z-brackets with Pemko perimeter gasketing, astragals, door bottoms or thresholds to further increase the energy efficiency of the opening.
