Samuel Heath’s Powermatic controlled and concealed door closers are designed with fire safety in mind when it comes to meeting legislation, regulations and product performance standards.
Powermatic meets the requirements of BS EN 1154 and carries the CE mark. The product has been tested by an independent laboratory and proved to meet the requirements for one hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1.
The door closers possess Certifire accreditation and are approved for use by the British Woodworking Federation under its fire doors and doorsets scheme.
Along with its fire performance credentials, the Powermatic benefits from being totally concealed when the door is closed. This enhances it’s suitability for fire doors by reducing the risk of vandalism, which could in turn render the door useless.
Local authorities and housing associations can now access free guidance on self-closing devices for fire doors, as the GAI has launched a new door closer safety checklist.Posted in Access Control & Door Entry Systems, Architectural Ironmongery, Articles, Building Associations & Institutes, Building Industry News, Building Products & Structures, Doors, Health & Safety, Innovations & New Products, Publications, Security and Fire Protection
