Home of the Doordwell delayed door closer
Delayed Action Door Holders have been supplying cost effective delayed door closers for over 40 years.
The Doordwell is a cost effective air bleed sucker device which will hold any type of spring or pneumatically self closing door open for an adjustable period of time between ten seconds to one minute. Doordwell provides an alternative to expensive door holding devices such as electro-magnetically held open doors and can be retro fitted into existing buildings.
Fire Prevention Officers actively recommend Doordwell as a simple and effective solution for doors that are constantly being propped open illegally.
The Doordwell is designed with fire safety and energy economy in mind where doors must be closed after use.
“In our opinion Doordwell may be fitted to any fire resisting and smoke door set without compromising the doors ability to self close, its fire resistance and its durability.”
