Door closer enhances high-rise fire safety

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers tick all the right boxes when it comes to providing reliable fire safety in social housing applications.

Meeting all relevant fire and accessibility performance standards, Powermatics also deliver many practical benefits that make them ideal for use on fire doors in high-rise flats and HMOs.

The door closers meet the requirements of BS EN 1154 and carry the CE mark. They have been tested by an independent laboratory and proved to meet the requirements for one hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1 and have Certifire accreditation.

Powermatics also enable doors to comply with the accessibility requirements of Approved Document M of the Building Regulations and BS 8300.

Powermatic door closers are particularly suited to social housing situations thanks to the fact that they are totally concealed when the door is closed. In addition to creating a more homely, less institutionalised appearance, this concealment significantly reduces the risk of the door closer being damaged through vandalism or tampering, which could render the door useless and pose real risks to life in the case of a fire. It also means less maintenance call-outs and enhanced reliability of the fire door.

Available in standard and Free Swing models, Powermatic offers social landlords a host of benefits in performance and application that make it ideal for a wide variety of fire door applications.
