An open and shut case for sensible closer selection

The vexed question of fire door compliance and how that fits into accessibility and security requirements is one which causes public sector specifiers a headache.

Astra closers to the fore!

Hundreds of Astra 3000 Series door closers have helped make newly refurbished homes in London’s Enfield safe and practical for tenants. New flat entrance doors, supplied by PDS Ltd are part of a major facelift and improvements at Fore Street Estate in Edmonton by ALMO Enfield Homes. The closers were selected for their ability to close these fire-rated doors efficiently while at the same time being unobtrusive, hard wearing and reliable. In addition, there is a closer in the 3000 Series for any size of door – no matter how narrow – making the doors eminently usable for tenants, no matter how able.

Hidden Assets

Q: Where can concealed closers be used? Are they just for residential projects? A: Although concealed closers are most often associated with domestic doors on apartment entrance doors, they do, in fact, have much wider uses in commercial settings too. In fact a concealed closer can be used on any door with a light to medium traffic flow. If you’re unsure contact your supplier but as a rule of thumb they can be used in many of the applications where overhead closers are used.
