Door Controls | Our Philosophy
Door Control products from Door Hardware Online provide solutions to just about every commercial door control situation that may arise. Our door control products encompass a wide variety of types from door holders, coordinators & door closers through to low energy automatic operators. Door control products are specified widely for use on commercial and public buildings to ensure security, fire and life safety obligations are addressed.
Door Closers -
The most common specification (and now a legal requirement - see The Construction Products Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011) is for use on fire and smoke control doors. Door closers are also a vital part of any access control installation since doors must close and re-lock after every authorized operation - often used in conjunction with electro-magnetic locks and electric strikes.
Automatic Operators -
Conventional door closers are not always suitable for use on accessible routes and busy routes requiring an unhindered flow of pedestrian traffic. Automatic operators will provide the elderly, infirm and other users with a means to traverse an opening in a safe and comfortable manner.
Door Holders & Coordinators
Door controls of this type are often ignored at the specification stage but will provide a complete solution at exposed doors (door holders) and a pairs of rebated fire/security doors (coordinators).
Door Control Products - Adding value
Door control products have been our business for over forty years. During this time we have provided specifiers, designers, architectural ironmongers, contractors and end users with quality door control solutions backed by a sound understanding of applications, design, performance and certification requirements. We will consider any and all potential scenarios - however complex you may believe them to be. Often, it is a subject we have addressed previously and one for which we may have available a tried and tested solution.
For larger projects Door Hardware Online has a dedicated team of specialists who will conduct site visits to advise on installation and best practice - enabling you to get the very best results with this added level of support. Through this service you can be sure that you are installing a door hardware system that will keep the building and its occupants safe for many years to come.
Every product supplied, across the range, is accompanied by easy to follow illustrated installation instructions. Most installation work can be completed using standard tools - especially important when installing large quantities of hardware throughout a building. Accurate installation and final adjustment ensures a consistency of performance is achieved and that compliance with accessibility, fire and life safety standards is maintained .
Many products within the Briton portfolio include self-adhesive templates to guarantee accurate fitting and trouble free door operation. Where special situations arise, such as curved/arched head doors, over sized or exposed doors, please call the sales office to seek guidance on specification and installation 01380 720062.
