Breaking News: Astra appoints Ecco as sole Irish Distributor

Astra Door Controls has appointed its partner Ecco Architectural Hardware as exclusive distributor of its range of concealed door closers in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Astra’s CE-Marked 3003 jamb-mounted concealed closer is already proving to be popular with architects, contractors and interior designers across Ireland who value its unobtrusive good looks matched with reliable performance and CE-marked assurance.

Astra’s best-selling power size 3 3003 concealed door closer is fully CE Marked and independently fire tested, making it the perfect choice for fire doors. Fitted to the hinge-edge of residential entrance doors as well as hotels, schools, hospitals and commercial premises across the globe, the Astra 3003 closer is fully adjustable, fully controlled and much more aesthetically pleasing than the surface-mounted overhead alternatives. The Astra 3003 closer’s quality design and build make it perfect for high traffic applications, both commercial and residential – wherever a reliable, unobtrusive and attractive door closer is required.  Contractors and joiners love fitting the Astra 3003 since it requires much less wood cut out than alternative closers.

Ecco’s Eoin Corcoran is enthusiastic about the prospects for success for Ecco and Astra in the island of Ireland. “We have been looking at the Astra 3003 for some time and really believe that it is the up-and-coming closer in the Irish market, especially since its CE Mark makes it compliant with building regulations for fire doors,” he says. “Our whole business is based on offering the right products and we believe the Astra 3003 will have big impact in our market especially in domestic and light commercial settings.”

Ecco Architectural Hardware was formed to bring together design, quality and service with a product range which includes design-focussed but practical products and trained, expert staff. The company offer as standard ranges from some of the world’s leading handle designers and manufacturers, along with customised bespoke products including door and window hardware, electronic locks and access control, high security locking systems, bathroom and washroom accessories, and glass hardware.

Astra is well known for its door closer range including the popular Gibraltar range. The Lancashire-based company can demonstrate many years experience in the sector and carries out all of its own R&D in-house. It exports its British door closers all across the globe via a network of distributors and partner companies.
