Concealed door closer help to maintain Kipling's spirit

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers have been used by the Rocco Forte group to retain the high-end aesthetics of rooms and suites at Brown’s Hotel, one of London’s most elegant boutique residences. A total of 75 rooms have been fitted with the door closers, amongst them a new suite named in honour of Rudyard Kipling, who is believed to have written The Jungle Book whilst staying there. David Rozmetov, the hotel’s chief engineer, states, “We did not want to use surface-mounted door closers because they would spoil the appearance of our exquisite interiors.”

Concealed door closers assure safety at mental health unit

Powermatic concealed door closers have been used with a continuous geared hinge to create a safer, more comfortable environment in a specialist mother and baby unit at St Luke’s hospital in Middlesbrough. Delighted with the results, the design office for Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Trust commented, “Combining the continuous hinge with the Powermatic concealed door closer delivered the performance essential for fire door applications throughout the unit in an unobtrusive manner, which enabled us to create a safe and comfortable environment.”

Concealed door closers enhance apartment aesthetics

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers have been used on luxury apartments at Riverwalk House, Millbank. The hi-spec interiors feature a light, airy décor, with contrasting dark oak apartment doors and panels. Architects, Stanton Williams specified concealed fittings for all apartment entrance doors to ensure that nothing spoiled the appearance. Jason White of Stanton Williams comments, “We chose the Powermatic concealed door closer as it meets the necessary fire and accessibility requirements and, just as importantly for this project, it is hidden from view when the door is closed, helping to retain a clean appearance to doors and interiors.”

Concealed door closers give modern twist on Victorian values

Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers have been used to retain the high-end aesthetics at an exclusive hotel and spa in West Sussex. “The Powermatic concealed door closer offered the perfect solution; not only does it satisfy the performance and durability characteristics essential for the room and fire door applications, but it is also totally concealed when the door is closed, and particularly unobtrusive even when the door is momentarily opened. This enabled me to create a seamless appearance to the doors and assure a similarly clean, unhindered finish to every room.”

Concealed door closers hit right note at music school

Designed by Victoria Manser with the Manser Practice, the Rudland music school makes an outstanding addition to the Godolphin and Latymer independent girls’ school in West London. Finished to exceptionally high standards, the music school provides a variety of tuition and practice rooms, as well as a recording studio and drama theatre. Not wishing to spoil the special atmosphere by installing surface mounted door closers, whose control arms and boxes would have protruded into the corridor or prevented the fire doors from opening flush to the walls, the school opted for Powermatic concealed door closers.
