Door Closers

Door controls are placed under more arduous conditions of use & abuse than nearly all others items of hardware. It is essential that their operation is smooth, efficient & reliable at all items, especially when used on fire resistance & smoke control doors.

EUROART architectural range of door controls are produced to the highest standards of design or most have adjustable control features. this comprehensive range of door controls feature varying power sized units for many different door applications. They come with a choice of architectural covers which are avliable in plated or colour coated finishes

1 <750 20
2 850 40

  • The power of a door closer should relate to the width and weight of the door onto which it is to be fitted. The chart opposite providesa guide to selecting the appropriate product.
  • Closers are designed to specific strength i.e.'fixed' strength or variable strengths whereby the power is either'adjustable' within the mechanism itself or 'selectable'via a temlate.
  • When fitting a closer in a parallel arm installation(app. 66),it is usual to experince some power loss and a stronger unit may be needed. However, some EUROART closers retain their strength regardless of application.
  • Certain environmental factors could impacton the opening force of thedoor,e.g wind pressures. if unusally windy or draughty conditions are expected,selected,select the power size for the next door width.

European Standards

Depending on their function, all EUROART door closers are ce marked and conform to either BS EN 1154 Controlled Door Closing Devices or BS EN 1155 Electrically powered hold-open devices for swing doors. All products have been included in a successful fire test in accordance with BS EN 1634-1.


Applications




Backchek

Backcheck offers resistance to opening between 70° and 90° when the door is opened with excessive force. useful in all situations. Helps prevent damage to building and door frames, particularly where opening is resticted. NOTE: Backchek is not a subtitute for door stops which should be fitted whereever posssible.


Dyedela Action

Delayed Action slows down the closing speed of the door between approx 90° and 65°.The amount of delay can be adjusted and deactivated altogether.Ideally suited for applications, such as care homes, where people need a greater length of time to exit doorways


Controlled Closing

All EUROART door closers have an adjustment value which allows the losing speed to be controlled. this is effective throughout the whole closing cycles except where delayed action or latch action are activated.


Controlled Closing

Latch action provides for the adjustment of the last 10°(approx) of the closing cycle.This allows the closer to be adjusted to overcome a latch or instumescent seal.


Slide Arm Application

Can be used where it is undesirable to have a projecting arm.consists of a single arm connected to channel mounted above the door.(Not suitable for doors with projecting architraves).


Door Plate

Allows a door closer to be fitted where the top rail of the door is too narrow to allow normal fitting.The drop plate is first attached to the door and then the closer attached to the drop plate.

Standards and Certification

BS EN 1154:1997 -The European standard for the performance of controlled door closing devices.

Providing details on product types, classification by use, test cycles, test cycles, door mass, corrosion resistance, as well as definations, product performance requirements, test aaparatus, test mathods and marking of products.

BS EN 1154:1997 classifies door closers by using a 6 digit coding system.

    Digit1 - category of use
    Two categories are defined.
  • -grade 3: For closing doors from at least 105° open
  • -grade 4: For closing doors from 180° open

    Digit2 - Number of test cycles
    only one categories are is identified.
  • -grade 8: 500,000 cycles

Digit3 - Test Door Mass/ size
Where a door closer provides a range of power sizes both the minimum and maximum shall be identified. *Door size/mass in accordance with BS EN 1154:1997

    Digit4 - Fire Behaviour
    Two categories are defined.
  • -grade 0 : Not suitable for use on fire/smoke door assemblies
  • -grade 1:Suitable for use on fire/smoke door assemblies,subject to satisfactory testing and assessment(See BS EN 1634 Part1: 2000)

Digit4 -Safety
All doors closers are required to satisfy the essential requirements of safety in use. Therefore only grade 1 is identified.

    Digit6 -Corrosion resistance
    Five categories are defined.
  • -grade 0 : No defiined resistance.
  • -grade 1 : mild resistance
  • -grade 2 : moderate resistance
  • -grade 3 : high resistace
  • -grade4 :very high resistance

BS EN 1154:1997 -The European Standard for the performance of electrically powered hold open devices for swing doors.

This standard again provides details on product types, classification by use,test cycles,door mass, corrosion resistance, as well as definitions, product performance requirements, test appartus, test mathods and marking of products.

BS EN 1155:1997 classifies products using the same 6 digit coding system as outlined in BS EN 1154:1997. The only difference being box 3 where BS EN 1154 refers to durability, BS EN 1155 refers to hold open power size.
