Samuel Heath‘s Powermatic door closers are the ideal choice for providing reliable fire safety for social housing applications.
With all requisite fire and accessibility performance standards met, Powermatics also deliver plenty of practical bonuses, perfect for fire doors in high-rise flats.
The door closers have been stringently tested by an independent laboratory and proved to meet the requirements for one hour and half-hour fire doors.
Powermatic door closers are especially suited to social housing applications due to them being entirely concealed when the door is closed.
As well as creating a more homely feel, this concealment substantially lowers the danger of the door closer encountering damage, whether it be through vandalism or tampering, which could leave the door beyond repair and pose risks to life if a fire occurred.
Less maintenance required and heightened reliability are assured with the fire doors, which come in standard and Free Swing models.
Powermatic provides social landlords with a plethora of benefits in performance and application, making it a great choice for a wide range of fire door applications.
