Project Description

The reasons for keeping a VIP cigar lounge locked goes beyond the luxuries or aesthetic reasons. Firstly, smoke seeping out of a smoking area is a known health hazard for non-smokers. Besides, privacy, noise isolation and smoke isolation are the fundamental requirements for luxurious space like this. Therefore, cigar lounges typically require quiet door closer for concealment and constant closure.

Smoking Lounge Common Considerations

While there are several quiet commercial door closer available in the market, they often fail to solve some vital problems.

1. Air Pressure

Typically, the windows of a cigar lounge are sealed. As a result, every time you close the door, you are actually pushing a part of the inherent volume of air in the room against the bigger air pressure outside.

2. Visual Appeal

Visual appeal is crucial for upscale interior doors and environments like this cigar lounge. It demands a minimal visual interference, a sleek look of the room owing to its contemporary and metallic finish.

3. Security Measures

The VIP cigar lounge uses an electromagnetic lock for security. If the door remains open, however, the lock fails to secure the space.

4. Oil Leak Issue

Quiet door closers often use a hydraulic system which can leak fluid. Oil leaks can lead to:

  • Unstable and dangerous door closing speeds due to diminished buffering.
  • Unsightly stains on the door and nearby objects.

5. Rust Issues

Door closers are susceptible to rust, which can necessitate repairs. A rusted door closer may not function properly, detracts from the interior aesthetics, and can emit squeaky noises, diminishing the user experience.
