Concealment delivers benefits for housing

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers tick all the right boxes when it comes to meeting the legislation, regulations and product performance standards that govern fire safety and accessibility. They also deliver a number of practical benefits that make them particularly well-suited to housing applications.

Where fire performance is concerned, Powermatic door closers meet the requirements of BS EN 1154 and, as such, carries the CE mark. They have also been independently tested and proved to meet the requirements for one hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1.

Powermatic also offers operating efficiencies that enable it to assure a door’s compliance with Approved Document M of the Building Regulations

In addition, Powermatic is particularly suited to social housing situations thanks to the fact that it is totally concealed when the door is closed. This not only ensures that interiors look less institutionalised and more homely, but can also reduce the risk of the door closer being damaged through vandalism, misuse or tampering, which could render a fire door useless. It also means less maintenance call-outs and enhanced reliability.
