Keep Close

The magnetic latching system  

 

SIMONSWERK  offers with Keep Close an  intelligent  alternative  to  a  conventional  latching  mechanism.  Comprising  a  closing  magnet,  magnetic  plate,  and a convenient handle design, this impressive system with its minimalist  design  also  affords  exceptional  ease  of  use.  The  KC  50  closing  magnet  in  the  frame  functions  contactless  and  does  not  make  a  sound.  Its  counterpart  in  the  form  of  the  KC  50/G  magnetic  plate  is  bonded  to  the  main  closing  edge  of  the  glass  door,  where  it  goes  virtually unnoticed.  

 

The magnetic closure, consisting of the closing magnet KC 50 for the frame  and  the  magnetic  plate  KC  50/G  for  the  glass  door,  forms  an  aesthetic and elegant unit with the handle KC 170, which is adapted to the system - applicable for timber, steel and aluminium frames.

Keep Close - for timber interior doors

SIMONSWERK  has  optimised  its  magnetic  closures  to  come up with a striking solution that’s even suitable for timber interior doors. Current-free, silent, wear-free and reliable, its technical features alone are sure to impress in every respect. But the most exceptional aspect of the magnetic closure is the unprecedented ease of use it affords when opening and closing timber doors.

It has never been so easy to open and close timber interior doors with-out  making  a  sound.  Without  the  conventional  “push–pull–slide”  motion,  doors  can  be  opened  silently  and  with  minimal  ergonomic  effort,  too.  The  door  is  held  in  the  closed  position  without  making  direct contact with the patented closing magnet. The holding power can  be  individually  adjusted  to  anchor  the  door  securely  in  its  end  position.

 

To create a minimalist impression, the magnetic closure can be hidden entirely from sight by attaching it to the upper edge of the door or to the cross member of the frame. This leaves the vertical edge of the door and frame free from unsightly elements without affecting the hinge in any way.

Groundbreaking interaction

In  combination  with  the  magnetic  plate  KC  50/H,  the  closing  magnet  KC  50  is  the  perfect  choice  for  timber  block  frames and casing frames and can even be used with rebated and flush doors alike. It is even possible to combine several magnets at once, if required – particularly in the case of extra-tall  doors,  for  example.  The  matching  handle  KC  170    does not require any milling of the wood. The closing magnet,  magnetic  plate  and  handle  are  all  coordinated  to  perfection and combine to create a set that is easy to install.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep Close - the magnetic latching system

The magnetic closure, consisting of the closing magnet KC 50 for the frame and the magnetic plate KC 50/G for the glass door, forms an aesthetic and elegant unit with the handle KC 170, which is adapted to the system - applicable for timber, steel and aluminium frames.

 

The magnetic interaction allows the latching mechanism to be adjusted entirely to suit individual requirements. The holding power of the magnets – and therefore the level of effort required to open the door – can also be customised by changing the position of the magnets.

(1) Closing magnet KC 50

The closing magnet KC 50 in the frame is contactless and noiseless. The permanent and reliable closure can be adjusted individually.

 

(2) Magnetic plate KC 50/G

The magnetic plate KC 50/G is stuck permanently on the main closing edge of the glass door and is thus barely visible.

 

(3) Handle KC 170

The handle KC 170 adapts ideally to the appearance of the flush glass door. The fixation is simple, stable and durable with the help of a positioning template and the adhesive strip already applied to the handle.
