Norton Door Controls' Safezone® Door Closer/Holder Wins "Top Products" Award

Award Recognizes the Most Popular Manufacturers and Suppliers of 2012

MONROE, NC - Norton Door Controls, (, the leading manufacturer of commercial door closers and an ASSA ABLOY Group company, announces that its SafeZone Multi-Point Door Closer/Holder will be featured in Building Operating Management as a Top Products Award Winner.

This award recognizes the most popular manufacturers and suppliers of 2012 as determined by building and facility executives who participated in a national survey. The winners, chosen from 560 possible products, are 100% reader-selected.

The SafeZone electromechanical closer/holder 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.

Hold open time and sensitivity of the SafeZone are also selectable. Consequently, a physically disabled person in a wheelchair, an elderly person moving slowly, or a child who stops to pick up a toy all are able to move through the door opening at their own speed - through their own customized "zone of safety."

SafeZone is 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.
