The choice of door closer can have a significant influence on the appearance, ambience and comfort of any project. And, when it comes to hotel interiors, these attributes hold particular importance in assuring the quality of the guest experience.
The natural choice for the designer has always been the concealed door closer and for many years, Samuel Heath, renowned for its high quality bathroom fittings and architectural hardware, has been at the forefront of the selection process with its Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers.
Available as standard and Free Swing models, Powermatic door closers deliver outstanding performance in fire resistance and accessibility, but it is their concealment that brings a host of benefits for hotel interiors.
Fitting neatly between the door and frame, Powermatic closers are totally concealed when the door is closed, enabling the designer to avoid the unsightly control arms and boxes that are an unavoidable consequence of using surface-mounted door closers and which can spoil not only the appearance of the door, but of the entire interior.
Using a concealed door closer ensures that nothing interferes with the desired appearance of the interior decorative scheme. It also creates a more homely, less functional, or institutionalised, ambience within the room, something which is highly desirable when comfort and relaxation are paramount.
Beyond the assurance of great-looking interiors, Powermatic has provided a number of practical benefits to iconic hotel projects, including the ability to ensure that the sound insulation properties of guestroom doors are retained and simplifying maintenance and cleaning regimes.
Together, these benefits have seen Powermatic used by the world’s leading designers on impressive hotel projects across the globe, from owner-managed boutique residences to luxury hotel, spa and leisure resorts, all seeking to make the guests’ stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Recent additions to the long list of prestigious hotels that have benefited from Powermatic include the refurbishment of The Savoy, London; ARIA resort and casino, Las Vegas; Hilton, Manchester and the exclusive South Lodge hotel and spa in Surrey.
