As a result of the structural changes in modern societies, barrier-free access has become a focus in recent years. Our new electromagnetic hold-open device ensures ease-of-access for children, the elderly, as well as people with limited mobility without sacrificing fire security. Paired with our top-of-the-line cam action closer (both overhead and concealed), the EHO is applicable on virtually all door types, including heavy duty ones up to 120 kg. Moreover, in the near future it can be linked with our door coordinator system (SDC) for application on double doors.
