Perhaps they should be designed so they don't slam in the first place? Personally I wouldn't have them in my house as I keep the internal doors open all day. However, I do close the doors at night and have 2 smoke alarms.well then they should replace the mechanism with one that doesnt slam. its no excuse for tampering with their integrity....
Not true: required in some cases (e.g. if house has three stories).why would you have self closing doors in a house????
they are only required in public and semi public buildings (apartment blocks) to aid the safe removal of people in case of fire..... and maintain the fire resistance of an element of structure
i can think of situation where they ARE needed.....they were/are in place in almost all new apartments internally. By all means they should be left on teh front door but there is no need for them on the internal doors to a single floor apartment
1. yes1. so you can think of situations where they are needed,
2. have you an opinion when they are used throughout an apartment,
3. and have you ever tried to adjust a perko closer
