Doors are opening for Allegion's new Briton 2300/2400 range
Leading global provider of security and safety solutions, Allegion (formerly Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies), has launched a new range of door closers, specifically designed to offer market-leading cam-action technology at a competitive price point.
The Briton 2300 Series Surface Mounted Closers and 2400 Series Concealed Closers comprise a host of innovative solutions to meet the needs of the healthcare, education and commercial sectors; delivering high quality, precision manufactured units for exceptional ease of use and reliability.
The Briton 2300 series incorporates the same high efficiency cam-technology as the popular Briton 2700 series, allowing users to enjoy the same ease of use and is available with either a slide in trimplate or with a curved 'softline' all-over cover. The 2300 model comes with adjustable power sizes 2-4.
For environments requiring concealed cam-technology door closers, the Briton 2400 series is suitable for doors 44mm thick. Delivering the same product quality as the new door mounted options, this model offers an aesthetically pleasing solution with additional protection from vandalism.
Demet Tunc, Vice President of Product Management for Allegion comments: "We are delighted to bring this new range of cam-action door closers to market, after extensive sector research, product development and rigorous testing procedures.
"As a top manufacturer of traditional door closers, Briton has a heritage reaching back decades, putting us in good stead to create a high quality collection of cam-technology products suited to any commercial or public sector environments such as schools or hospitals.
"Specification of these products is increasing, and there was a gap in the market for a product range that could meet the strictest guidelines for quality and functionality, at an affordable price. We have risen to the challenge and delivered a collection of closers that boast high quality materials, durable components and careful design."
The 2700 series is an existing part of the Briton cam-technology portfolio. The heavy-duty, slide-action channel door closer, in an overhead surface fixed unit is available in three models; standard, mechanical hold-open and electromagnetic hold-open.
As with all Briton cam-closers, the 2700 series conforms to the requirements of EN1154 and comes with adjustable power sizes 2 through to 5. The range incorporates an optional mechanical hold-open device and an electromagnetic hold-open model.
To ensure optimum efficiency the Briton 2700 series allows installers to see the current power setting and adjust the spring power to suit door conditions. The naturally high inherent graphite content of the closer's cast iron body lubricates inner components with every use, aiding durability and longevity.
All Allegion products are offered with industry needs in mind and are backed up by the company's full design and project capabilities, providing end to end solutions for all security needs.
The Briton 2300 and 2400 series are now available nationwide through Allegion's extensive network of distributors. For further information visit www.allegion.co.uk
