Door closers for uni

The University of Edinburgh has specified door closer products from ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the physical security products company.

The manufacturer has supplied more than 300 of its DC500A CAM-Motion door closers and 60 of its G460 slide rails during the last 18 months, installed in new buildings and retro-fitted around the university’s public, commercial and residential sites.

Cameron Duncanson, Maintenance Services Co-ordinator at the University of Edinburgh, says: “We have been continually impressed with the high quality of the company’s DC500 door closer range, particularly in our student accommodation, meeting BS EN 1154 requirements for controlled door closing devices. From my experience, we know with confidence that installing a door closer from ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions means that it will tick the box in terms of quality, reliability and performance.

“Another advantage to working with ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions is that the technology has been designed to be robust and withstand heavy use. This reduces our life-cycle costs, safe in the knowledge we can fit the same proven product again and again. Furthermore, we know that security of supply is assured with ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions’ range. This means we can simply order the desired product when required, resulting in less stock for us to carry, which helps reduce our overheads.”

Barry Harris, Sales Manager Sector Specialist at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, adds: “Whether it’s public university buildings, laboratories or more traditional learning environments for lectures and seminars, the university can depend on us to deliver a solution that is fit for purpose. Our range of high-performance door closers have been developed to meet the exacting standards required from a university, and the success of our DC500 door closer throughout the institution’s many sites demonstrates this.”

The DC500 features Cam-Motion to ensure that the door is light to open while retaining its closing power; the product is offered with a standard or height-adjustable guide rail, and can be installed in hinge or non-hinge sides, in either standard or frame applications. The door closer is the makers say for single action doors up to 1100mm wide, and suitable it is claimed for fire and smoke protection doors. Visit
