Retrofit door handles for easy security upgrades

ASSA ABLOY : 07 April, 2015  (New Product)
The Retro3 door closures from Union can directly replace Briton 2004 equipment whilst maintaining fire integrity
Retrofit door handles for easy security upgrades

Union is improving ease of installation for retrofit projects with its Retro3 door closers. The Retro3 door closers use the same dimensions and footprint as the widely used Briton 2003 range. This makes Union’s Retro3 ideal for use on private and public sector retrofit projects where maintaining fire integrity, cost and ease of replacement can be an issue.

Offering easy installation, the door closers are non-handed & can be mounted on the hinge or non-hinge side of the door and, unlike competitor models, can be mounted in applications 1, 61 and 66 (parallel arm or push-side door mounted). This reduces the need for considerable planning and enables installers to complete jobs faster and ensure that fire compliance is upheld, even if the original product did not meet legislation, improving profitability and customer satisfaction.

The door closers have thermodynamic valves to accommodate temperature fluctuations and are fully adjustable to allow the door to be tailored for specific customer or site requirements. This also compensates for the general wear and tear of the door and other ironmongery components, therefore offering a reliable, long lasting solution that will improve whole life costing, in addition to helping maintain fire or smoke performance.

David Hindle, Head of Door Closer Sales at ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “Union’s Retro3 is ideal for use when retro fitting schools, hospitals and offices, in most cases there is no need to apply a template and no alteration will be required to the door or frame, saving time and money when replacing an equivalent competitor product.

“We have been a major player in door closers worldwide for many years and Retro3 is an example of our broad range of reliable door closers at competitive prices. Both installers and users can be confident that Retro3 will outperform equivalent products during installation and use.

“Over the years, Union’s product innovation has been led by customer feedback that has driven convenience and quality, showing how Union is helping installers prepare for any kind of call, from new builds, to emergency repair and retrofit jobs.

The size and appearance of the Retro3 door closers ensures they blend with any application, where other traditional door closers have been used, or are fixed to adjacent doors, making Retro3 a high-performing, yet cost effective solution.

Retro3 is fully certified to BS EN 1154, CE marked and suitable for use on timber fire doors.
