Door and gate closers are essential…they provide a controlled closing speed, allowing people to pass through safely…

Are you in charge of local authorities, ensuring your community is safe in public areas? Do you manage a shopping mall or retail outlet and have thousands or millions of members of the public pass through your doors daily? Do you run a hotel or B&B and have guests passing through your doors at all hours? Perhaps you run a garden centre and have numerous gates which the public access to explore your outdoor store further?

If you answered YES to any of the above, you require secure door and gate closers to prevent your customers or communities from having an accident.

Sadly there have been many cases of both adults and children being trapped in gates or doors slamming closed on them due to negligence of those responsible. Owners have a duty of care to ensure safety hardware for people on their premises to pass through entrances and exits safely. The purpose of a door or gate closer as stated above is primarily to ensure the risk of an accident is minimised. A slow and controlled closing speed is the solution you maybe looking for…
