ASSA ABLOY, the world’s largest door solutions provider, has enhanced its extensive portfolio of door closers, with the introduction of the DC840 and DC300.
Ideal for a wide variety of public and commercial applications, the new DC840 cam motion closer, enables doors to be easily opened, by the young, the elderly or those with a disability, assisting in fulfilling the duties required under The Equality Act (EA), specifically BS8300 and Approved Document M of The Building Regulations.
The latest closer has a smaller footprint than other concealed door closers in the ASSA ABLOY range, making it suited to the majority of public and commercial projects. A popular product across most specifications, thanks to its attractive streamlined appearance when installed.
The CE-marked DC840 is particularly suited for large-scale applications, where multiple doorsets require a standardised product that meets with legislative and safety requirements.
The ASSA ABLOY door closer range also includes a new rack and pinion variation. The DC300 closer offers a more cost effective solution for lower traffic doors, often used in administrative or private areas of public buildings.
The latest closer to complete the comprehensive ASSA ABLOY offering, the DC300, features a delayed closing facility and its standard footprint and adjustable template allows for ease of installation and makes it suitable for nearly all applications.
Lorna Ardern, Product Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, explained:
“Recent reports relating to fire safety, including that of a determination against a care home under the Fire Safety Order, which failed to install self-closing door closers on its fire doors, has highlighted the importance of specifying a fit for purpose closer.
“The new additions to the ASSA ABLOY range not only feature universal footprints common across all types of applications, but also comply with the latest safety and legislative guidelines, ensuring our range has a solution for every application.”
The DC840’s cam motion design helps to reduce the opening force required at the start of the cycle, the most strenuous part, aiding ease of access. Whilst its variable closing force has an EN 1-4 rating, making it suitable for a diverse range of applications, including doors on fire escape routes. Similarly, the DC300 has an adjustable closing force with an EN 3-6 rating.
Both closers are supplied complete with arms for right and left handed doors, increasing the range’s versatility. The DC840 cam motion door closer is available in an attractive silver finish, popular across most new developments and refurbishments, whilst the DC300 is available in a variety of finishes, including silver, white, brown and black, as well as the option to customise.
Both the cam motion and rack and pinion closers are available with a hold open device and are fitted with back check to prevent damage to the door when in situ.
ASSA ABLOY door closers are an innovative range with products to suitall door types and feature a modern linear design. Easy to install and adjust, the new ASSA ABLOY range is CE Marked and fully certified to BS EN 1154, 1155 and 1158, offering customers a long-lasting door opening solution.
