ASTRA IS THE SMOOTH OPERATOR
Leading door closer manufacturer Astra will be exhibiting at 100% Design for the first time this year, showcasing the latest developments in its comprehensive CE Marked door closer portfolio. On show for the first time is the brand new 4000 Series range of closers for high-traffic, security sensitive, and prestige settings.
“Astra can now offer architects and designers the opportunity to create sleek, minimalist doors that are fully compliant with standards, fire regulations and accessibility requirements without the rather clunky look of overhead closers to spoil design lines,” says Astra’s Philip Gallagher. “Quite simply, concealed closers look better – in fact they are not visible at all when the door is closed. This is a particularly important consideration in domestic settings where an overhead closer can lend a rather institutional air to a project.”
100% Design is the first chance to see Astra’s newly-launched 4000 series of jamb-mounted, frame plate door closers. Designed to offer specifiers the ultimate versatility in powerful, adjustable, reliable closing for fire doors, high traffic settings and security-sensitive locations and totally adjustable even after installation, the Astra 4000 Series closers have been designed specifically for doors that require a continuous, controlled action into the latch, particularly fire doors.
The UK-manufactured 4000 Series range includes three different power size closers both with easily adjustable speed: the 4001, 4002 and 4003. An ultra-compact high efficiency design makes the Astra 4000 Series the perfect choice for both new-build and refurbishment projects. They are ideally suited to a wide variety of applications including hotel bedrooms, office doors, residential dwellings, student accommodation and any setting with a reduced ligature requirement. They are tested and certified to all British and international performance standards and programmes, including FD30 & FD60 fire tests conducted in accordance with BS EN1634-1:2000 (test report CHILT/RF06118).
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 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.
