Open (and CLOSE) the Door to Success!
"Were you born in a barn?!" This is a sarcastic question that you might hear from someone if you inadvertently leave a door open after going through it. Though the phrase is said in a jokey way, the fact is that leaving doors open can have a number of negative effects.
Perhaps the most obvious of these is that leaving a door open alters the ambient indoor temperature, letting cold air in and warm air out. The reverse is true during the summer months. Another problem is that an open door can represent an equally-open invite to trespassers. Finally, and most importantly, doors left open can aid the progress of flames and smoke in the unfortunate event of a fire in the building.
All of these problems can be prevented with a single piece of equipment: an overhead door closer. Among a vast collection of door furniture, JAS Timber proudly supplies a number of overhead door closers from big brands like Eurospec and Hoppe-Arrone. The collection includes:
A key product in the popular 'EasiExit' range of panic door fittings from Eurospec, the DCT2024-SV is Certifire tested and approved. The hydraulic overhead door closer provides variable power options and can open to a massive 180 degrees where required. Additonal accessory packs are available, along with an optional upgrade to backcheck action.
The AR540 series of door closers from Hoppe-Arrone are one of the market-leading company's consistent bestsellers. Combining backcheck and delayed action in one integral standardised unit, this overhead door closer offers great strength and flexibility, especially when used in high-frequency environments like hotels, hospitals, schools and offices. The product is crafted from premium-quality steel in either grey or silver colour options. This door closer is currently available from JAS Timber with an attractive price discount of 25% for a limited time.
