Concealment enhances fire safety

18 May 2017

Concealed door closers deliver a number of advantages over surface mounted devices when it comes to assuring reliability and continuous fire safety.

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers tick all the right boxes when it comes to meeting the plethora of legislation, regulations and product performance standards that govern fire safety. They can also offer some distinct advantages over surface-mounted devices in assuring reliability and continued safety.

British designed and manufactured, Powermatic benefits from true third-party accreditation. It meets the requirements of BS EN 1154 and, as such, carries the CE mark. It has also been tested by an independent UKAS laboratory and proved to meet the requirements for one hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1, boasts Certifire accreditation and is approved for use by the British Woodworking Federation under its fire door and doorsets scheme.

Powermatic not only delivers impressive fire performance credentials, but also helps to assure continued operation of the fire door by reducing the risk of damage through vandalism or tampering. A damaged door closer can lead to failure of the fire door to perform the duty for which it is intended; to keep fire and smoke at bay.

Unlike surface-mounted door closers, Powermatic is totally concealed when the door is closed and unobtrusive when the door is open, with few visible parts on show. This reduces the temptation for it to be tampered with or targeted by a would-be vandal or prankster, making it suitable for a wide variety of situations.

Powermatic door closers offer a host of benefits in performance and application that make them ideal for a wide variety of fire door applications in high-rise flats and apartments, HMOs and a wide range of commercial, hotel, health, care, education and student accommodation developments.
