Better fire safety for high rise flats

17 Apr 2018

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers deliver discreet, reliable automatic closing for fire doors in high-rise accommodation and social housing situations.

Samuel Heath is reporting increased interest from the high-rise accommodation sector for its Powermatic concealed, controlled door closer thanks to ease of fitting and the safety, reliability and low maintenance benefits that the door closer delivers.

Sales director, Martyn Whieldon, explains, “Powermatic is ideal for projects where social and private landlords wish to improve safety, enhance the living environment and reduce maintenance.

“Our experience suggests that, in addition to its excellent fire performance and accessibility credentials, Powermatic is winning in the high-rise sector due to the additional benefits that come from the fact that it is totally concealed when the door is closed and requires no maintenance after installation.”

Powermatic is completely concealed when the door is closed, which significantly enhances the aesthetics of the home interior, helping to create a more homely, less institutionalised environment for residents. It also significantly reduces the opportunity for the door closer to be tampered with or vandalised. Together with the fact that the door closer is maintenance-free, this provides a more resilient installation, resulting in fewer call-outs and reduced maintenance costs.

A damaged door closer can prevent the door functioning altogether. Reducing the risk of damage improves reliability, providing a safer more convenient solution.

British designed and manufactured, Powermatic door closers are available in standard and free swing models and can be fitted into existing door installations or easily incorporated into the manufacture of complete doorsets. They are CE marked, making them suitable for use on fire doors, and can enable doors to meet the accessibility requirements of Approved Document M and BS 8300.
