Hold-open door closers help support COVID-safety
24 August 2020
Our range of best-selling TC-series concealed transom closers from Axim Architectural Hardware could help in the fight against COVID-19 by holding open doors to reduce contact at entry and exit points in commercial buildings.
In line with the government’s COVID-secure guidance, businesses are taking all kinds of measures to operate safely while keeping customers, visitors and staff safe during the pandemic. Even the smallest change can make a big difference in helping to minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19 – e.g. ensuring doorways that don’t pose a fire or security risk remain open during working hours, thereby limiting contact and controlling the risk of infection.
The TC Series concealed transom closers – part of Axim’s best-selling commercial door hardware range – deliver the controlled opening and hold-open functionality businesses need so that visitors and staff can enter and exit the premises without having to negotiate high-touch points like handles or push plates.
Reducing contact in high-traffic areas like entranceways isn’t the only COVID-safe benefit. By keeping doors open, ventilation is improved, and better airflow could help to prevent the virus settling on surfaces and reduce the spread of Coronavirus indoors. Axim closers can support single and double-action doors too, so they’ll easily facilitate one-way flow entry and exit points.
Axim’s durable, easy-fitting EN 1154-complaint concealed overhead transom closers are suitable for both replacements and new installations. We offer three popular series: The TC8800 transom closer (and its longer spindle counterpart, the TC9600) are mainstay choices for commercial door fabricators. The TC9900 is fully adjustable, making it a flexible, easy-to-fit closer to keep on the van ready for the next call-out.
Secure flush bolts and dust-resistant sprung loaded socket keeps; fail-safe or fail-secure site configurable electric door releases; burglar-resistant locks and deadlatches; plus BS EN 1125-compliant panic exit devices complete the range and suit most swing and sliding commercial doors.
