Door Closers & Door Controls

Door closer's and door controls are vital to the operation of any door. The basic function of a closer is to use a hydraulic action to close a door after it has been opened. This makes sense as what use is a security lock on a door if the door wont close when opened, what use is a set of fire doors if they remain open and what would be the point of an access control system if the authorised people where to pass through the door and it was to remain open afterwards???

A closer also works in conjunction with the hinges to give a smooth action when the door closes. Correctly specified hinges and door closer's prolong the life of the door and its hardware.

Closer's take into account many variable when fitted to a door, listed below is a glossary of terms that apply to a closer and we hope that you find them helpful in selecting the requirements for your specific application -

1 - "Latching". This term refers to the action of the closer at the end of its closing arc. By adjusting the latching action of the closer you can accelerate the speed of the closer in its final closing cycle to overcome any resistance that the latch of a door lock may provide giving the closer the ability to "slam" the door into its frame.

2 - "Delayed Closing". This term refers to the action of the closer as it begins to close the door. By adjusting the closer it can creep at a slower speed in the first part of its closing cycle. When the door reaches approx 75 degrees it then reverts to its standard closing speed. This mode is used in hospitals, offices etc where a person would need more time to pass through a door.

3 - "Back-Check". This term refers to how the closer operates in adverse conditions. An example might be where a door could be blown by wind. A back-check action applies a buffer resistance to the closer when it opens over approx 85 degrees. Therefore it cushions the action of the closer reducing the chance of the closer slamming against a wall or a frame.

Please take a moment to look at our range of closer's and retainers, as with all products on this site, the range is by no means exhaustive and if you cannot see what you are looking or need further information then please contact us and we will help you further

Door Closer Covers

All of the closer's in our range can be supplied with colour coordinated covers and arms to match the colour scheme of the building or the architectural hardware on the door. The covers are supplied as either a boxed or radiused shape to give the closer a smoother look.

The range of colour's compliment the surroundings in which the closer is fitted and can also dramatically change the aesthetics of the closer allowing it to blend in with its surroundings. Therefore, the closer no longer stands alone on the door aside from the door hardware and begins to fit in as part of the door.

The closer covers can be supplied in stainless steel, polished finishes such as brass or chrome but can also be supplied to BS or RAL colour coated finishes. You can also have the closer arms supplied polished or plated to suit the finish of the closer.

The unit is designed to be wall mounted and is supplied with an armature plate that fixes to the door. The unit can be flush or surface mounted onto the wall but it can also be supplied with a floor mounting bracket.
