Many architects and designers prefer custom arched top doors for their aesthetic appeal. These doors commonly appear in historic churches, upscale antique restaurants, and luxury apartments. However, the entry doors usually require the self-closing feature for public safety, especially for fire-rated purposes. So what could be the best fit if it’s not the door closers for arched doors?

Well-designed Speed Control

Waterson door closers for arched doors are designed with a speed control function that allows users to precisely adjust door movement speed. Three customized speed zones ensure that users can easily prevent slamming using Waterson’s patented deceleration feature. To understand on how to adjust, please click here.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Traditional door closers do offer self-closing support for arched top doors. However, due to the skewed and tiled shape, the big door closer somehow looks displaced and awkward on the round top door.

  • Aesthetic Integration: Combines door closers, spring hinges, and an optional hold-open feature into a single attractive component. Suitable for elegant arched doors and luxury entryway.

  • Sleek Design: No visible closer arm to enhance door aesthetics. Extremely suitable for invisible door installation.
  • Appealing Finishes: Available in various PVD finishes like Satin Stainless Steel, Flat Black, Satin Brass, and Dark Satin Bronze
