Powermatic Free Swing controlled, concealed door closer
The Powermatic® Free Swing controlled, concealed door closer offers all of the performance and benefits of the original Powermatic® with the added feature of free swing capabilities.
Connected to the building’s 24-volt fire alarm system, the Powermatic® Free Swing can function in the same way as Powermatic® or can allow a door to be operated manually and left open as desired once the mechanism has been primed by opening the door to its maximum. When the fire alarm is activated, or there is a power failure, Powermatic® Free Swing becomes active and the door is closed automatically at a controlled rate.
Free swing functionality delivers a number of benefits in convenience and safety for a variety of situations where manual door operation is desired, such as care homes, sheltered accommodation, health, hotel and educational projects.
