At the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital the dormakaba door closers are proving that quality materials and a careful specification will provide best value in practice. In fact, a large number of DORMA TS 83 door closers and BTS 80 floorsprings – originally supplied in 1991 – are still in operation and still meet all Building Regulations and Product Standards more than 20 years later, despite stringent changes in recent years.

dormakaba’s contribution to the project
Despite being supplied in 1991 and numerous changes to legislation since, dormakaba closers still meet the necessary legal requirements.

As all dormakaba closers are CE Marked, Certifire Approved, and help doorsets meet the requirements of ADM and BS8300, they offer the same reliability and peace of mind today.
