Self-closing hinge

DHD International Inc. released a 1 15/16-inch by 6 1/2-inch bottom hydraulic self-closing hinge. The hinge, manufactured in Italy, is the same size as standard patch fittings and meets the same U.S. pivot distance standard of 2 5/8 inches. It can be retrofit onto doors that already have a standard free-swinging bottom patch fitting in situations where an owner wants to change to a self-closing door. The self-closing hinge is available in all major finishes.

Door lock

Assa Abloy introduced the Securitron M380E EcoMag Magnalock—the next iteration of its EcoMag technology. Intelligent, easy to install, and with a holding force of 600 pounds, this solution offers increased energy efficiency over the previous M380 Series by reducing energy consumption up to 80 percent. The Securitron M380E is designed to sense when a door is propped open and is able to adjust the power the magnet draws. This decreased power draw means a smaller energy footprint, say officials.
