What is it that makes an ASSA ABLOY Door Closer so unique?

Door closers do most of their work out of sight. Building users may not always notice them, but an effective door closer helps everyone to experience a more secure, comfortable building – not every door closer does the same job, however.

An ASSA ABLOY Door Closer offers everyday benefits; doors which require significant force to open are a big problem for inclusive access.

An ASSA ABLOY Door Closer with Cam-Motion technology can solve it and remove this barrier to building accessibility. It provides safe, convenient access for every building user.

A fully closed door creates a thermal seal which minimises energy waste; it adds fire compartmentation and ensures a building access control system works properly.

And with Close-Motion, ASSA ABLOY developed a door closing technology which operates almost silently, reducing environmental noise while soundproofing rooms.

ASSA ABLOY: History, innovation and expertise

“The key to the quality of ASSA ABLOY Door Closers is quite simple,” said Andreas Gmelin, Product Management and Business Development Director Door Closers at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions EMEIA. “Decades of expertise and innovation have helped us to really understand the door and everything around it.

“A lot has changed since the first door closer was patented back in 1880. In that time, ASSA ABLOY’s experience has established trust in markets in every corner of the world.”

ASSA ABLOY Door Closers have won multiple design prizes, including Red Dot and ICONIC awards from the German Design Council. They are manufactured in Europe and pushed to their limits in stringent in-house and certification testing.

This ensures customers in more than 150 countries receive the quality they expect from an ASSA ABLOY door device.

“We have a solution adapted to almost any door in any building, from contemporary construction to heritage properties,” added Andreas Gmelin.

“Our range includes single and double-leaf door closers for any material, including floor springs for glass doors, vertical gate closers and invisible solutions which preserve any entrance’s ‘wow factor’.”

“You may not see an ASSA ABLOY Door Closer. But you will know it is there.”
