For the specifier, in addition to outstanding fire and reliability credentials, Powermatic Axis offers new opportunities to overcome the, often disparate, requirements of design and function. With both the TECTUS hinge and Powermatic Axis door closer being totally concealed when the door is closed, the combination of both products assures the pure aesthetics of the door and facilitates continuity of design throughout the project. Commenting on the launch of the new product, Samuel Heath’s sales director, Martyn Whieldon states, “Powermatic Axis is a result of rigorous design and testing together with SIMONSWERK of Germany, and we are delighted with the results. The new Axis door closer is true to Samuel Heath’s reputation for excellence in product design and engineering, which assures specifiers of the very best in performance and reliability. “Used in conjunction with the TECTUS concealed hinge system, Powermatic Axis also resolves the specifier’s dilemma of retaining the aesthetics of the door and interior without compromising on functionality; a totally concealed hinging and closing solution which assures a clean appearance and performs beautifully. The cover plates of the closer, which conceal the adjustment fixings, are designed to match those of the hinge, both in shape and finish. To aid installation, we have designed a routing jig for the closer to be used in conjunction with that offered by SIMONSWERK for the TECTUS hinge.” Equally enthusiastic about this latest innovation from Samuel Heath, SIMONSWERK have issued their own statement; “We are thrilled that specifiers will now be able to express their design vision, free from the limitations imposed by visible hinges and door closing devices. Powermatic Axis is a superb product and we are more than happy to endorse its use with the TECTUS concealed hinge system.” Further details on Powermatic Axis can be obtained by visiting Samuel Heath’s dedicated door closer website at , contacting their technical department on 0121 766 4200 or emailing .
