SafeZone(TM) Provides Secure Passage Through Every Opening

MONROE, NC - Norton Door Controls, (, the leading manufacturer of commercial door closers and an ASSA ABLOY Group company, announces that SafeZone(TM), a revolutionary door closer/holder, has been named one of 2010's "best new products" by Architectural Record. Every year the publication enlists a panel of experts - lighting designers, architects and product specialists - to select the year's most exciting, cutting-edge product introductions. This year SafeZone was one of nine products chosen to represent the category of Windows/Door Hardware/Glazing.

The SafeZone electromechanical closer/holder senses movement in the door opening and holds the door open, allowing passage through any opening far more securely than ever before. The increased safety makes SafeZone ideal in a wide range of environments, including retirement and rest homes; schools and universities; hospitals and healthcare facilities; auditoriums and performing arts centers; and houses of worship.

SafeZone features a sensor that can be set to detect movement in one or two directions through the opening - enter only, exit only or enter and exit - unavailable in competitive offerings. Another unique feature of the SafeZone is that the zone size and sensor direction angle can be increased or decreased, depending on the requirements of the application. Plus, the multi-point feature means that a door equipped with SafeZone will hold at any degree as long as movement is detected in the opening.
