Briton pledges performance with enhanced 2000 door closer series
Briton has launched its newly enhanced 2000 door closer series, adding augmented versions of its highly renowned 2003 and 2003V overhead door closers to its UK portfolio.
The 2000 series, designed for surface mount application and celebrated for its renowned reliability and performance, offers an authentic one-box solution for timber and uninsulated metal doors and is ideal for first time or retrofit functions in a host of domestic and public settings.
To meet the developing requirements of customers, Briton is building upon the timeless design of the 2003 and 2003V, optimising both closers for seamless adjustment and installation, with self-adhesive Accufit templates in all mounting positions designed to assist in quick and accurate fittings.
Briton 2003 – Known for its robust and reliable performance year after year, the Briton 2003 is suitable for doors up to 950mm wide and 60kg and offers a fixed power size EN 3 and a Grade 4 opening angle of 180°, emphasising its advanced versatility. An improved version of the classic Briton cover, complete with a stylish flatform arm that matches its finish, conceals its easy-to-adjust fixing and adjustment screws - each designed to accommodate swift changes to closing speed and latch action if required.
Briton 2003V – An informed choice for doors up to 1100mm wide and 80kg, the Briton 2003V provides a spring adjustable power size EN 2 – 4, with a built-in adjustable backcheck to help prevent damage to the door, frame and adjacent walls. With its easy-access adjustment screws to closing and latch regulators, the 2003V’s opening forces can be fine-tuned to satisfy BS8300 recommendations and Approved Document M requirements - offering dependable flexibility where it counts.
Compliant to UKCA CE and Certifire accreditation in Regular, Transom and Parallel applications, both the 2003 and 2003V offer trusted performance and durability and are tested to EN 1154 and EN 1155. The 2000 series is covered by Environmental Product Declaration and is available with an optional, hold-open armset - for use on non-fire doors only. The Briton 2000 series also comes with a 10-year guarantee.
Sue Corrick, product marketing manager at Allegion UK, commented:
“Following a momentous year for the Briton team, we’re now extremely pleased to continue our innovative formula and introduce enhanced versions of the 2003 and 2003V overhead door closers.
“Trusted performance, reliability and durability is what our customers know us for, and since its launch, the 2000 series has always epitomised that long-standing heritage. With the enhanced 2003 and 2003V, we’re now improving the installation process even further, helping ensure our product functions efficiently and effectively when it matters, for years to come.”
Boasting Briton’s new style packaging designed to reduce waste, the 2000 door closer series is Briton’s second product launch in the past twelve months, following the success of the new 5700 series lockcase. Both the 2003 and 2003V are also supported with complete product information and datasheets, and a golden thread of certification documentation for traceability on the new Briton website.
