Weatherproof solutions for controlled door movements

Can you afford storm damage? Repair costs for distorted doors, damaged door hinges, torn overhead door closers, broken glass, etc.? Doorways that can no longer be used until they are repaired? Doors that result in unnecessary energy loss because they no longer close properly? Especially in this day and age, we all need to keep an eye on our costs. And in many cases that means: Better to prevent right away than to repeatedly make expensive repairs!

DICTATOR has the weatherproof solutions for your doors! Our back checks (also suitable for windows!) solve these problems – and in addition, you get the exact installation specifications for your application from us, so that nothing can go wrong.

With back checks the storm can no longer damage outward-opening doors

Two large glass doors opening outwards form the access to the windy passage between these two company buildings in Starnberg. During strong gusts of wind, the doors – despite their overhead door closers – were often torn out of the users’ hands in an uncontrolled manner and slammed open. The consequences: Damage to the hardware, defective doors and broken glass panes – not to mention the safety hazards for people near the doors.

During the repair of a damaged door, DICTATOR back checks were installed on each door. This put an end to doors slamming open, because it reliably decelerates the door if the opening speed is too high. It can also be retrofitted on doors with an existing overhead door closer without any problems.

Quiet and reliable closing even in strong winds

The large wooden garden door provides an enormous target for the wind. The previous door closer worked well under normal conditions, but it gave way under wind load. The gate slammed loudly – an annoying circumstance, firstly because of the noise, and secondly because of the risk of accidents and possible damage to the garden gate.

After replacing the old door closer with the DICTATOR gate closer DIREKT, tthis problem became a thing of the past. The garden door is now ready for any weather. The DIREKT closes the door at the preset speed, without fail and without loud slamming – even in strong winds.
