Public buildings to get new door closer technology

Facilities and estate managers can cover both safety and accessibility requirements within buildings thanks to a new high efficiency door closer range from HOPPE (UK).

Designed to meet fire regulations without compromising on safety and security, the new Cam-Action range caters for power sizes 2 to 5 making it the ideal hardware solution for public buildings.

Door closers have a vital role when it comes to keeping building occupants safe in the event of a fire. The closer ensures that the door is closed fully into the frame, helping to prevent the spread of fire, smoke and other toxic gases.

The HOPPE (UK) Cam-Action range has been tested to BS EN 1634 Part 1, making it suitable for use on 30, 60 and 120 minute timber fire doors – the requirement in most public buildings. It also meets the fire safety requirements of Approved Document B.

Fire doors within public buildings can be difficult to open for some building users but the new Cam-Action closer is designed with a low opening force, enabling everyone to move around the building with ease. It also meets the accessibility recommendations of BS8300 and Approved Document M.

The surface mounted slide track puts the closer at less risk of vandalism or accidental breakage, a common problem with projecting armsets. Projecting armsets, also known as scissor arms, can become disengaged when subjected to these forms of abuse and stop the door from closing properly into the frame creating a major fire hazard.

Andy Matthews, head of sales for HOPPE (UK) said:
“Door closers play a key role in keeping buildings secure and safe but their importance is often overlooked. The new Cam-Action series caters for the majority of power sizes and is a popular choice for many buildings due to surface mounted slide track that provides a sleek, discreet finish.”
