Zoo Hardware has further added to its rapidly growing range of high-quality door closing devices, with the ZDC003C Concealed Overhead Door Closer Series.

Stringently tested in accordance with the requirements of BS EN1154: 1997, CE/UKCA and CERTIFIRE approved, the ZDC003C Series is suitable for use on 30-minute Timber fire doors.

Coming as a fixed power size 3 model with closing and latching speed functions, the ZDC003C Series is a fully tested and certified alternative and cost-effective solution for 44mm thick Timber doors, weighing up to 60kgs and 950mm wide. The door closer is available in a silver finish, with additional finishes available upon request.

‘Fast-growing supplier’

Jason Tonks, Dip GAI, MGAI, Reg AI, Technical Product, Certification and Compliance Manager for Zoo Hardware, says: “With the launch of the ZDC003C, Zoo are entering the concealed overhead door closer market for the first time with an entry-level model, underlining our position as a fast-growing supplier of door closing devices to our customer base.

“All Zoo product development is driven by customer need and meeting the highest standards of certification, and this launch is no exception. The ZDC003C is ideal for specification projects where the doors size and weight are already known, and where customers are looking for an alternative, more cost effective option to the conventional 2-4 concealed cam action models in the market which deliver lower opening forces, but at the trade-off of a much higher cost price.

“The ZDC003C series offers a functional yet affordable option with an unobtrusive design, which is also fully tested and certificated for the UK/EU markets.

“Our door closing device product range has more than doubled over the last two years, and we are looking forward to announcing further exciting additions in the near future, as we continue to meet our customer requirements.”

The ZDC003C Series is available with accessories, including a fully tested intumescent kit for use on fire rated doors and hold-open kit for non-fire rated doors.
