Project Description

Arched top doors, both single doors and double entryways, have recently gained a great popularity due to their elegance and aesthetics. Many companies have been choosing arched top as their entrance. For example, Balmain Fashion Company, 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.

Major Challenges for Arched Top Door

Finding a self-closing system for arched exterior doors is challenging, especially with seasonal weather variations. In winter, cold wind enters the store, while in summer, temperatures can reach 30 degrees. The owner prefers to keep the door open for ventilation.

Initial solutions like a conventional floor spring or door closer were considered but proved impractical—there’s no header frame for a door closer, and installing a floor spring is too disruptive for business operations. Besides, since the arched front door is designed with luxury and elegant aesthetic, the challenge is even harder to solve!
