ASSA ABLOY launch new door closer range

ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, now offers a new extensive range of door closers to complement its product portfolio, providing a total solution for ease of specification.

ASSA ABLOY is already the world’s number one in terms of door closer manufacture, following the Group’s acquisition of King Door Closers of Korea in May 2010. With the addition of King, the ASSA ABLOY Group produces more than 7 million door closers worldwide each year.

The innovative new range of ASSA ABLOY branded door closers has been designed to meet the needs of the UK market and is backed by full customer services, technical and marketing support.

The high quality range is competitively priced, yet also includes a number of advanced technical features for easy installation, minimal maintenance and reliable, long-lasting performance supported by guarantees for peace of mind. The range includes cam action and rack and pinion door closers, as well as floor springs and electro mechanical and electro hydraulic fire door systems.

All cam action and rack and pinion door closers feature fully adjustable closing strength with electro variants providing the hold-open and swing free functionality, which are so well suited for use as part of a fire escape route. The new series is fully certified to BS EN 1154 / 55, CE marked and suitable for use on fire doors. When fitted to suitable doorsets, the cam action door closers will also assist in satisfying the recommendations of BS 8300 and Approved Document M (ADM) of the Building Regulations.

The efficient design of the cam action door closer ensures that the door is easy to open with minimal physical force at the beginning of the opening cycle, while retaining its closing strength to ensure that the door sits firmly and safely in the doorframe.

As Tina Ainsworth, Head of Marketing for ASSA ABLOY UK, commented: “ASSA ABLOY is well known for locking technologies and the Group is the global leader in door opening solutions. Although we have been a major player in door closers worldwide for many years, our UK market penetration has lacked visibility. “This is partly because door closers have been marketed under several Group brands. Now, the new range will be branded very clearly as ‘ASSA ABLOY’ to help specifiers and contractors deliver the right solution for their projects. “With the additional manufacturing resources and this purpose designed range, we can provide a broad choice of high quality, reliable door closers at competitive prices, as part of a complete door solutions package, tailored to individual project requirements. “Door closers are a vital part of the safety and ease of access for any commercial, public or industrial building and we now have the range to suit virtually every specification requirement.”
