Door closer keeps social housing safe

Available in standard and free swing models, Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers from Samuel Heath meet all relevant fire and accessibility requirements, but it is their total concealment that delivers additional safety, reliability and low-maintenance benefits for the social housing sector.

Powermatic is completely concealed when the door is closed, and not easily visible when open, assuring a more homely, less institutionalised environment for the dwelling. It also reduces the opportunity for the door closer to be vandalised.

Together with the fact that the door closer is maintenance-free, this attribute can result in fewer call-outs and reduced maintenance costs.

Reduced risk of vandalism also provides significant safety benefits; a damaged door closer can prevent the door functioning altogether, resulting in inconvenience for residents and reducing fire safety.
