The swing free mode of a closer can allow a door to slam shut. Regardless as to whether this is accidental, deliberate or just caused by a draught, it poses a real risk to frail residents and care home workers alike. Exidor’s Guardian closer has been developed with an anti-slam function which controls and slows the motion of the door.


If a door is unbalanced it can naturally swing open or closed, or it can swing with a draught. This can result in a resident wedging the door open and invalidating it as a fire door. The Guardian closer offers a low level control on the door, which stops it from drifting from its open position, at the same time as allowing it to operate freely to the user.

The Guardian door closer is the only unit on the market specifically designed to meet the needs of residential care facilities.
