Fire doors are required to be closed at all times in the event of an emergency. Door closers ensure automatic closure and safety compliance. 

  • The device’s features offer controlled closing. Controlled closing is especially beneficial for heavy industrial doors. Consider people in wheelchairs, small children or someone who might have their hands full. Controlled closing prevents slamming and injury and allows people to move through at their own pace.
  • Door closers also prevent doors from being opened too quickly, most notably in windy locations where the door may be pushed opened or slammed closed due to the enviroment. This also prevents injuries and door damage.
  • Door closers ensure that the door will close automatically behind a person entering or exiting. This provides an extra measure of entrance security where access control is used.

These devices can be fitted onto a multitude of different doors including:

  • Access controlled doors fitted with maglocksGlass doors
  • Wooden doors
  • Entrance pivot doors
  • Industrial doors
  • Fire rated doors

Door closers work on a variety of different door types.
