Door closer enhances fire safety

British designed and manufactured, Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers are said to tick all the right boxes when it comes to fire safety and are particularly suitable for social housing applications.

Powermatic carries the CE mark, meets the requirements for one-hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1 and is the only jamb-mounted door closer to have Certifire accreditation.

In addition to third-party accredited performance credentials, Powermatic closers are reportedly totally concealed when the door is closed. This reportedly not only helps to create a ‘more homely’ interior, but is also said to ‘enhance’ the reliability of fire doors by reducing the risk of damage through vandalism or tampering, which could render the fire door useless.

Powermatic’s appeal to the social housing sector is said to be further enhanced by its ability to enable doors to meet accessibility requirements.
