GEZE UK launches the first CE Marked range of concealed transom mounted closers
GEZE UK, the UK’s leading manufacturer of door and window control systems, has launched the industry’s first range of closers that are fully certificated to EN 1154 and EN 1155 (Electro hold-open models) for concealed transom mounting.
Receiving its first viewing at this year’s BSEC (Building Schools Exhibition & Conference), this new range of transom closers called Invers, provides the solution for double action doorsets, where the use of conventional floor closers is not possible due to floor slab depths or where penetrations into pre-stressed concrete floors are not permissible.
The Invers closers are concealed within the transom, with the spindle connecting neatly to the top strap mounted in the top of the door. This direct connection between closer and door leaf effectively replaces the guide rail or arms, which are features of conventional surface mounted or concealed closers. Aesthetically this is an improvement and in an anti-ligature environment, this installation significantly reduces risk.
This pioneering closer range has been developed alongside Leaderflush Shapland, the UK’s leading performance doorset manufacturer, who can now supply doorsets complete with the new Invers transom mounted closers. It is also available direct from GEZE. For enquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The new Invers range of transom closers comprises the TS 550 E/ ER Invers; the TS 500 NV Invers and the TS 500 EN3 Invers. All have the EC Certificate of Conformity.
“This product development partnership has brought to the market a solution that combines standards and performance with ease of installation, economy and aesthetic appeal, so we are confident that they will prove a popular choice for specifiers and purchasers”, says Simon Bowden, technical director for GEZE UK.
