The Astra door closers were chosen by the architectural ironmonger John Planck Ltd to suit the sleek, modern interiors of the apartments. They form part of an ironmongery package for over 3,300 individual door sets that featured a specially designed lever handle and matching accessories for all the apartments and common areas.
Arena Tower, a development by Galliard Homes is a landmark with a twist since the apartment levels rotate slightly around the building to create the Tower’s distinctive flowing twist. It rises 450ft above Canary Wharf and includes over 370 apartments as well as a cinema, swimming pool, gym, leisure facilities, plus an array of bars and restaurants spread over 3 floors.
Modern sleek aesthetics were a top priority for architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill whose watchwords for the development were space and luxury. This made concealed closers the obvious choice since they are not visible when the door is closed, avoiding the somewhat institutional and ungainly appearance of overhead closers.
The developer’s brief to John Planck included a strong requirement for fire safety and so Astra’s 3000 Series fully controlled and adjustable were the obvious choice. They are often specified when clean, minimal design is required without compromising on performance - even on ½- hour and 1-hour fire doors.
