Overhead Fire Door Closers - Safe and Secure Closing

Welcome to our selection of fire rated overhead door closers, where safety, compliance, and functionality meet style and efficiency. Our range of door closers is designed to provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your fire doors are compliant and your facilities are secure. 

With their advanced features and reliable performance, these overhead closers are the ideal solution for both commercial and residential settings. With models to suit external and internal doors and a variety of functions and fitting applications, we have something for everyone.

Secure Closing for Fire Doors

When it comes to fire safety, every second counts. That's why our overhead fire rated door closers are engineered to deliver swift and secure closing. They minimize the spread of fire and smoke in the event of an emergency by providing swift and safe closing every time. 

With their precision mechanisms and adjustable closing speeds, these door closers ensure that fire doors shut firmly and effectively. They create a reliable barrier that helps to protect lives and property.

Overhead closers include the popular rack and pinion models with scissor arms. Different brands have universal closers that can be installed to the push and pull side of doors, standard or transom mounting.

If your site or facility requires more consideration with aesthetics whilst not compromising on function, consider a cam action slide arm door closer. The slide channel provides a sleek, modern style whilst the cam action mechanism is efficient and smooth in operation. These can also be installed on the push and pull side of side hung doors. 

Benefits That Go Beyond Safety

While safety is paramount, our fire door self closers offer a range of additional benefits that enhance the overall functionality and aesthetics of your facility. Explore the advantages of choosing our closers.

Smooth and Controlled Closing

Our door closers are equipped with advanced hydraulic systems that provide a smooth and controlled closing action. No more slamming doors or jerky movements, ensuring a quieter and more comfortable user experience with the right closer for the right application.

The overall closing speed of many models can be adjusted, as can the final 15° of the latching action. Backcheck function also ensures a smoother opening action. Backcheck provides a buffering action if doors are opened with excessive force, protecting your building’s users, and the door or wall from damage.

We always recommend fitting a door stop to any door with a self closer, whether it is overhead or concealed. Door stops can be floor or wall mounted and are available in a range of finishes and styles to suit the existing ironmongery. 

Energy Efficiency

Fire doors should close tightly against any latch that is fitted. Fitting our door closers can help to maintain the integrity of your building's insulation, minimizing heat loss and reducing energy consumption. This translates into cost savings and a more sustainable footprint. 

You should also have the correct intumescent seals installed, and ensure they’re in good condition. Regular checks should be made on all fire doors, making sure all hardware is in working order. This includes maintenance of the closer, seals, and the CE marked hinges. 

Easy Installation and Adjustment

Our selection of door closers from leading brands have been designed with convenience in mind. The simple installation process, along with easy adjustment features, allows for quick adaption to meet your specific requirements. Save time and effort without compromising on quality.

If you need assistance with installation, our door closers come with fitting instructions, and some with mounting templates. You can also download these from our site, or watch some of our installation videos for some of our electromagnetic door closers. This includes the Dorma TS73 EMF hold open door closer, the GEZE TS4000E, and the Arrow 624EM which is both hold open and swing free in one unit.

Explore Our Wide Range

Discover the perfect overhead door closer for your needs from our extensive collection. Our range includes closers suitable for various door sizes and weights, ensuring compatibility with different door blanks and applications.

All closers installed on fire doors should be fitted at a minimum power size EN 3. Select a fixed or variable power size closer that suits your door leaf weight and width. You can read more on this in our blog: A Complete Guide to Selecting the Right Door Closer

If you already have a tested and certified closer installed but need hold open function, consider a fire door holder. These units are available in a range of finishes, with the option of wall or floor mounting. There are options for both hard-wired and wireless acoustic door holders.

Are you looking for something more discreet? Take a look at our range of concealed fire door closers. This includes transom mounted closers, floor springs, and jamb mounted fire door chain closers in the Perko R100 Powermatic. Models like the Geze Boxer and Dorma ITS 96 are concealed overhead options for self closing on fire doors. These come in standard and electromagnetic variants.
