FF: Double Closer – Bamburg, Germany

According to Bob Larson of Builders Hardware & Supply Company, these double closers are doing a good job of controlling this 7-foot x 12-foot pair of doors at the Bamburg Cathedral (Bamberger Dom St. Peter und St. Georg) in Bamburg, Germany.  I guess that’s one way to handle an arched door!

Allegion will be out and about this fall demonstrating Overtur, our cloud-based collaboration platform that simplifies the specification of door hardware for BIM and non-BIM projects.  Designed with input from architects, this tool allows you to review hardware sets and plans online and in real-time, upload from BIM, transfer files and track history and changes to the hardware schedule. Come see our demo and try it out or learn more at https://discover-overtur.allegion.com

    Do you think that’s a ball-bearing pintle? LOL

    I’d be curious as to what the opening force is required to open the doors…..

    • Tony Park says:

      yeah, “doing a good job” sounds subjective given the potential torque required to get the door moving… could be that the doors are not used often and/or shielded from the elements. I’d be curious to hear the occupants’ feedback on what they thought about the door from an accessibility/convenience standpoint.
