Powermatic door closers for fire safety

Powermatic door closer enhances fire safety

  • 25 Jan 2016

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.
