About Us

Astra Door Controls – A manufacturer of concealed hydraulic door controls specifically designed for the Architectural market.

A Winning Team

Born out of the companies named Reilor Limited and Gibcloser Limited, Alister Reid and Philip Gallagher set up Astra Door Controls in 2005 with a vision to design and manufacture concealed door closers for the fire door market in the United Kingdom. In the beginning Alister Reid as Managing Director shaped the business to meet the demands of manufacturing and design leaving Philip (Technical ans Sales Director) to focus on developing the product range and certification requirements. As both directors are very “hands on” it soon became apparent that traditional overhead face fixed closers were not always wanted or desired. The requirement for a hidden or concealed self-closing device was an obvious missing piece of the modern fire door-set.

Committed to manufacturing in the United Kingdom, we are able to deliver modern design with quality products at a competitive price whilst fulfilling the requirements of the relevant standards”.
