Arched top doors are trendy!

Arched top doors have recently gained a great deal of storefront door popularity due to their elegance and aesthetics. Many companies have been choosing arched top as their entrance. For example, Balmain Fashion Company, the French luxury clothing and perfume leader, chose arched top doors for their flagship Moscow store. However, finding a solution for an arched top door with a sound self closing system is not easy, particularly when trying to maintain a beautiful exterior.[/fusion_text]

K51M – Full Mortise Self Closing Hinge

The storefront doors are two arched top glass doors with the delicate black metal frame. Aesthetic and trendy.

What could be the problem if the arched top door needs self closing?

However, finding a solution for an arched top door with a sound self closing system is not easy. Weather makes it more difficult.

In the winter, the cold wind keeps blowing inside the store. On the contrary, in the summertime, room temperature goes up to 30 degrees. The owner wants to keep the door widely open for fresh air.

At first, the contractor suggested some self-closing hardware like conventional floor spring or door closer. But, they soon found out that none of them work.

There was no header frame for door closer on the arched top door. On the other hand, installing a floor spring takes too many efforts. The owner just doesn’t want to close the store because of construction. Business goes first.
