Ingersoll rolls out overhead door closers in ME
Dubai, September 17, 2012
Ingersoll Rand, a $14 billion global business catering to transportation, manufacturing and construction industries, has announced the launch of its new cast-iron overhead door closers in the Middle East.
The new Briton 2700 series is a precision manufactured product and has been launched cam-action, slide channel door closer in a compact, overhead surface fixed unit that combines easy opening with safe, reliable closing, the company said in a statement.
Designed specifically to protect buildings against fire and smoke whilst providing ease of accessibility, the new range enables the disabled, children and particularly the elderly to overcome the problem of not having sufficient strength to open a fire door.
It bridges the gap between the conflicting demands of Part B (Fire) and Part M (Accessibility) of the Building Regulations as it provides sufficient closing force to comply with the requirement of EN1154 and CE marking for fire door controls, yet is suitable for use on access routes that require ease of opening to help building owners meet Part M and BS8300 (DDA) requirements.
“The new closer incorporates the innovative and unique Fast PowerAdjust function that provides installers and maintenance engineers with a visual guide to the strength of the closer, resulting in a more accurate power setting for a door,” explained John Diedam, the vice president of sales.
“This allows installers to quickly identify and adjust spring power which helps solve the problem of determining the correct door closer spring adjustment for the size of door being used and in doing so provides a convenient solution to one of the key problems highlighted by installers” he added.
