TS 93 features heart-shaped cam technology
DORMAíS latest door closer, which has been built primarily with environmental concerns in mind, is also gentle on its users as it cuts the effort required to open sliding doors to half of that needed to operate doors using conventional rack-and-pinion solutions.
ďBearing the IBU stamp for environmental sustainability, the TS 93 features Dormaís pioneering heart-shaped cam technology, which ensures you donít have to struggle. Even hefty smoke- and fire-resistant doors can be opened with ease by children and older people,Ē says a spokesman for Dorma, a global leader in door technology.
The multi-functional system features an integrated smoke detector and electromechanical hold-open, making it a suitable solution for a wide variety of fire door applications. The productís standard back-check feature restrains the door from a sudden bang, thereby protecting both the door and wall from any damage.
The door has also received ISO environmental endorsement. The metal used in the overhead door closer is 100 per cent recyclable. All the synthetic materials built into the product can be used to generate energy. Under normal usage in accordance with the intended purpose of door-closers, no health-related damage or impairment can be caused, the spokesman points out.
The series comprises a modular design that enables just a few door closer models to be combined with a number of different slide channels to meet virtually every conceivable functional requirement from 1.6-m wide to as narrow as 60 cm.
