Door closer delivery

by Mark Rowe

Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the door product company, reports that it has cut the delivery times of the ARC51N Concealed Transom Door Closer Range.

According to the firm door manufacturers can specify the ARC51N, pictured, and be confident it will reliably perform in all typical market applications. Fully tested to EN1154, the ARC51N range has helped many commercial doorsets achieve PAS24 and EN6375, showing security and durability.

The ARC51N has been subjected to mechanical load tests, taken though hard and soft body impact tests and been manually attacked with a range of tools. All units are supplied with a heavy-duty bottom pivot as standard. The makers described ARC51N as a choice for OEM door manufacturers wanting to provide security doors in areas at risk of attack.

The door closer is suitable it’s claimed for use with all anti-finger trap sections, which prevent accidents happening to stray hands. Also, the ARC51N has a standard footprint, allowing installation across a wide variety of commercial aluminium door systems and can be specified with 18, 22 or 26mm spindles.

As the requirement for a wider range of ARC51N configurations increases with the development of new commercial aluminium systems in the UK, Adams Rite has made a change to how it stocks these door closers. Instead of holding a range of complete units, the firm has introduced a ‘made-to-order’ process. Stocking a high level of ARC51N components provides the firm with new flexibility to build most variants to order, reducing the shipping lead time to a target of two days.

Tim Almond, OEM Commercial Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “The ARC51N is a great example of how we work continually to improve both our products and our service. We value the close-working relationships we have with our customers and our updated service offering will improve efficiency and product availability.”
