The Astra 3000 series of fully-controlled concealed door closers are a range of products developed by Astra to offer all the adjustability and control of an overhead closer, even for fire doors. Unlike other concealed closers on the market, the CE-marked Astra 3000 series is fully controlled and adjustable, making it a viable alternative to overhead products at a sensible price.
Manufactured in the UK, in four different power sizes with adjustable closing speed and latching action for different size and weights of doors, they feature an hydraulic piston assembly designed in-house by Astra. This offers an adjustable, controlled rate of door closure together with a variable ‘snap action’ for overcoming the latch.The closer’s quality design and build makes it perfect for high traffic applications, both commercial and residential.
3000 series concealed door closers from Astra are playing a starring role in making fire doors safe yet stylish at a residential development of an iconic former film studio. Door manufacturer ABL Doors used Astra closers to help create sleek, elegant entrance doors for apartments at Denham Film Studios in Buckinghamshire. Developers Weston Homes asked doorset manufacturer ABL to supply a wide range of cutting edge door designs in the most modern finishes that would complement the development’s retro aesthetic, including 30-minute fire- rated doors for apartment entrances. “It was incredibly important for us to achieve an effective balance of modern functionality and old-style glamour,” says ABL’s MD Andy Williams. “The flat entrance doors needed to be Secured by Design accredited FD-30 fire doors that would function brilliantly yet look refined to suit their surroundings.We opted for CE-marked Astra 3000 closers to avoid the obtrusive institutional look of an overhead closer.”
In its 1940s and 50s heyday, Denham Studios was a thriving film production studio. The site has now been developed to provide 224 conversion and new build homes, including 154 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and 70 four and five-bedroom family townhouses. ❐
