Samuel Heath and SIMONSWERK, two of the industry’s leading designers and manufacturers of architectural ironmongery, have created the Powermatic Axis.
This controlled, concealed door closer opens more opportunities for specifiers wishing to maintain a clean appearance to doors and interiors.
The door closer is specifically designed to work with SIMONSWERK’s popular TECTUS concealed hinge system. In addition to fully adjustable closing speed, it also features vertically adjustable anchor plates, making it compatible with the adjustability of the TECTUS hinge.
The door closer carries both UKCA and CE marks and is suitable for use on one-hour and half-hour fire doors. It will also enable doors to meet relevant accessibility requirements stipulated by Approved Document M and BS 8300-2: 2018.
With both the TECTUS hinge and Powermatic Axis door closer being totally concealed when the door is closed, the combination of both products assures the aesthetics of the door and facilitates continuity of design throughout the project.
