Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers from Samuel Heath & Sons have been used to great effect on one of the newest apartment buildings to grace the banks of the River Thames.
Situated at Millbank and enjoying spectacular, unrestricted views of the Thames, Riverwalk House has been designed by award-winning architects Stanton Williams for Ronson Capital Partners.
Conscious of the need to retain this high-spec appearance to doors and interiors, Stanton Williams specified Powermatic concealed door closers for entrance doors to the individual residences. Doors were supplied and fitted by Ruddy Joinery, and mortices routed on site to accept the door closers, which were supplied by leading architectural ironmonger, Franchi plc.
This concealment ensures that the appearance of the high quality dark wood doors and interior finishes is not spoiled by intrusive mechanical arms and control boxes that would be an unavoidable consequence of using surface mounted door closers.
Jason White of Stanton Williams comments, “We chose the Powermatic concealed door closer as it meets the necessary fire and accessibility requirements and, just as importantly for this project, it is hidden from view when the door is closed, helping to retain a clean appearance to doors and interiors”
