Fire door closer
Fire door closers, such as Samuel Heath’s Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers, need to deliver outstanding performance time after time.
Powermatic is one of the leading fire door closers available on the market.
Its suitability for fire door applications is assured by the fact that it carries the CE mark, made possible by its compliance with BS EN 1154, the European performance standard for controlled door closing devices.
Powermatic’s credentials as a fire door closer are reinforced by the fact that it meets the requirements for one-hour and half-hour fire doors under BS EN 1634-1, is accredited for use on fire doors by Certifire and is approved for use by the British Woodworking Federation under its fire door and doorsets scheme. It also meets the requirements of BS 476: Part 22.
Powermatic, ticks all the right boxes when it comes to meeting the plethora of legislation, regulations and product performance standards that govern fire safety.
With the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRO) placing a legal obligation on the “responsible person” to carry out a risk assessment on new and existing non-domestic buildings (this includes the common areas of flats and houses in multiple occupation), and Approved Document B (fire safety) of the Building Regulations imposing further requirements, Powermatic offers an ideal solution where fire safety measures are deemed necessary.
In addition to impressive fire performance credentials, Powermatic is totally concealed when the door is closed. This enhances the product’s suitability for fire doors by reducing the risk of vandalism, which could render the fire door useless.
All in all Powermatic offers a host of benefits in performance and application that make it ideal for a wide variety of fire door applications in health, education, hotel, social housing and commercial applications.
