A security door closer from ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware and Access Control Group has been shortlisted for the Architectural Ironmongery (AI) Specification Awards.
The AI Specification Awards aim to identify and reward excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery in the construction industry. The DC700G-FT Security Door Closer has been shortlisted in the category of ‘Product design and innovation’, which is a new award for 2019.
The DC700G-FT allows any fire or non-fire rated door to be retrofitted with an electrical locking mechanism. With no morticing or rebating required because the door closer, lock and wiring is all surface mounted, sites do not need to be concerned that the installation will risk a fire door’s certification, or create a lot of mess and disruption. In addition, the locking mechanism releases under its full rated load, so it is safe to use on escape ways, stair cores or final escape doors.
The door closer also features Cam-Motion® technology, ensuring the door is light to open while retaining its closing power. Therefore, this ensures the closer meets both the opening force detailed in BS 8300-2:2018, as well as the necessary fire closing force requirements. This is in line with the Equality Act 2010 and Approved Document M and B. Additionally the DC700G-FT is CE Marked in all three mounting positions and independently tested for use on fire doors.
Paul Johnson, Commercial Director at ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware and Access Control Group, comments: “Buildings evolve and change over time, and nowadays the challenge is balancing any new requirements while maintaining security, escape routes and fire door safety. Our unique and innovative DC700G-FT door closer helps overcome these challenges, by combining Cam-Motion® technology and an escape door strike all in one. This offers both smooth operation and reliable closing, with secure locking, whilst being fully certified.”
The winners of the AI Specification Awards will be announced on Thursday 21 March at the OXO2 in the OXO Tower building in London.
