Adams Rite will not budge over the legislative requirement for cam motion closers

Adams Rite’s Solenoid Bolt and DC860 concealed door closer will be on display at the CIH exhibition as part of commercial aluminium door manufacturer Total Glass’ stand

Visitors to Stand 160 in Hall C will be able to view the cam motion closer and electric solenoid bolt from Adams Rite incorporated as part of the Total Glass range of composite and aluminium security window and door solutions specifically designed for extremely demanding social housing environments.

The Adams Rite DC860 concealed closer with adjustable spring strength allows use with large or small doorsets while using cam motion technology to reduce the opening force, but maintain closing force.  In practical terms this means less effort is required to open the door, assisting local authority landlords in fulfilling their duties under the Equality Act 2010 and specifically to meet with BS8300 and Approved Document M guidelines.

The 1391 electric solenoid bolt can facilitate the remote access and exit control of aluminium, timber and steel doors. The 16mm throw of the stainless steel bolt has held under 13,000N of side load allowing it to be tested as part of PAS24 security doorsets.  It can be concealed in the door or frame for a streamline finish, and provides a positive fail-safe operation at all times. For ease of installation and flexibility the lock can be fitted vertically or horizontally.

Tim Almond, Business Development Manager, for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “As well as exhibiting as part of the ASSA ABLOY group at this year’s CIH exhibition, we are also really pleased to be featured on Total Glass’ stand. We have an excellent relationship with Total Glass thanks to its professional and knowledgeable approach to providing standard and bespoke window and door solutions for a wide range of applications, including social housing.  Visitors to the stand will be able to view Adams Rite security products in-situ, demonstrating their practical benefits, easy integration and attractive finish.”
