Relcross door closers keep brewery warm

When Hillside Brewery in Gloucestershire realised that the doors to their upstairs patio weren’t closing properly, with consequent loss of heat and escape of noise into the local area, something had to be done. The doors are exposed to the elements and, on windy days, the door closers originally fitted just weren’t good enough for the job. The doors open outwards and the prevailing wind is inclined to keep them open rather than blow them shut.

As it turned out, the solution was simple. They contacted Relcross in Devizes and subsequently fitted a couple of LCN 4040XP. This  is LCN’s most durable heavy duty closer designed for the most demanding, high use and abuse applications. The body is made from cast iron and is fitted with an Extra Duty forged steel ‘Cush-N-Stop’ arm to help prevent the doors and frames being damaged by the wind action blowing them too far open. The load capacity of the bearing has been increased by 44% and the extra power and robustness of the LCN 4040XP means the wind affected doors now close properly and securely eliminating the previous problems.
