New Door Closer Opens more Opportunities

Concealed door closer manufacturer Samuel Heath is launching a new controlled, concealed door closer for use with concealed hinges which will offer many more opportunities for specifiers wishing to maintain a clean appearance to doors and interiors.

Using the technological and engineering principles that have seen Samuel Heath’s Powermatic door closers become market-leaders in the field of discreet door closing, the new Powermatic Axis door closer has been designed to work with SIMONSWERK’s popular TECTUS concealed hinge system.

Adam Daniels, head of design at Samuel Heath, explains: 
“Powermatic Axis has been developed to deliver optimum performance, efficiency and durability when used in conjunction with the TECTUS hinge system, which has a multi-axis that is central to the door edge.
“Whilst designing a concealed door closer that works with this multi-axis, we have also incorporated an additional level of post-installation height adjustment.
“As with our standard Powermatic door closer, Powermatic Axis’s closing speed and latching action are fully adjustable, but it also features height-adjustable anchor plates, making it compatible with the 3D adjustability of the TECTUS hinge.”

Powermatic Axis is the culmination of close co-operation between both companies’ technical and manufacturing departments, involving design, engineering and rigorous testing.

The resulting product has been successfully fire tested to BS EN 1634-1 for FD30 and FD60 fire doors and is currently being assessed for CE marking which will signify its compliance with BS EN 1154 and ability to enable doors to meet relevant accessibility requirements stipulated by Approved Document M and BS 8300-2: 2018.

For the specifier, in addition to outstanding fire and reliability credentials, Powermatic Axis offers new opportunities to overcome the, often disparate, requirements of design and function. 

With both the TECTUS hinge and Powermatic Axis door closer being totally concealed when the door is closed, the combination of both products assures the pure aesthetics of the door and facilitates continuity of design throughout the project.

Commenting on the launch of the new product, Samuel Heath’s sales director, Martyn Whieldon states: 
“Powermatic Axis is a result of rigorous design and testing together with SIMONSWERK of Germany, and we are delighted with the results. The new Axis door closer is true to Samuel Heath’s reputation for excellence in product design and engineering, which assures specifiers of the very best in performance and reliability.
“Used in conjunction with the TECTUS concealed hinge system, Powermatic Axis also resolves the specifier’s dilemma of retaining the aesthetics of the door and interior without compromising on functionality; a totally concealed hinging and closing solution which assures a clean appearance and performs beautifully.
“The cover plates of the closer, which conceal the adjustment fixings, are designed to match those of the hinge, both in shape and finish. To aid installation, we have designed a routing jig for the closer to be used in conjunction with that offered by SIMONSWERK for the TECTUS hinge.”

Equally enthusiastic about this latest innovation from Samuel Heath, SIMONSWERK have issued their own statement; “We are thrilled that specifiers will now be able to express their design vision, free from the limitations imposed by visible hinges and door closing devices. Powermatic Axis is a superb product and we are more than happy to endorse its use with the TECTUS concealed hinge system.”
