More than 400 of Astra’s 3000 Series concealed door closers have been chosen for an innovative new residential complex in Qatar. Chosen for their sleek, minimalist design by furniture and doorset manufacturer Khazanah Trading, the Astra 3003 size three CE-Marked closers will be fitted to the apartment doors of the new Le Mirage CityWalk in Doha to help meet Qatari fire regulations without compromising on design aesthetics.
Designed by Architects Lacasa Qatar in the Bin Mahmoud neighbourhood of Doha, Le Mirage CityWalk is a residential development with 399 contemporary one- and two-bedroom apartments and two- and three-bedroom duplexes across four separate buildings. Its roof features an entertainment zone with swimming pools, football courts, tennis courts and even a Qatar’s first roof-top air-conditioned jogging track.
Astra’s top-of-the range 3000 Series size 3 concealed hinge-edge door closers were supplied for the entrance doors for apartments in Mirage CityWalk. The closers enable the designers to maintain the sleek minimalist lines that the aesthetic calls for, whilst complying with all appropriate fire and safety regulations. For this kind of high-end development, concealed closers are the obvious choice since they are not visible when the door is closed, avoiding the somewhat cumbersome appearance of overhead closers. The Astra 3003 closers were chosen because, with full adjustability and size three power, they were heavy-duty enough to handle the doors’ weight and width.
The Astra 3000 series of fully-controlled jamb-mounted concealed door closers are a range of ground-breaking products developed by Astra to offer all the adjustability and control of an overhead closer, even for fire doors. Unlike other concealed closers on the market, the Astra 3000 series is fully controlled and adjustable, making it a truly viable alternative to overhead products in any setting.
Astra is well known for its door closer range and the Lancashire-based company can demonstrate many years’ experience in the sector and carries out all its own R&D in-house. It exports its British door closers across the globe via a network of distributors and partner companies.
