New Cloze Control Door Hold Open Technology Reduces Energy and Door Maintenance Costs



Sylmar, CA, USASept. 23, 2015 – Anthony®, a Dover Company, has announced release of the Cloze Control Hold Open that doubles the life of refrigerator and freezer glass door gaskets to significantly reduce labor and energy costs.

Anthony’s new unique door hold open dampening technology eliminates the typical quick closing and slamming of doors that causes premature wear of door gaskets and fixture parts. Providing lower maintenance costs, less downtime, reduced spare parts inventory and decreased energy usage, the Cloze Control can be retrofitted on most Anthony cooler and freezer door models manufactured since 1995.

Current torque rod technology causes the door to shut quickly with a loud “bang” and bounce 3-4 times causing severe wear on the gaskets and mullions. As these parts deteriorate, they allow increasing quantities of refrigerated air to escape resulting in higher refrigeration energy expenses. Utilizing a unique, patented mechanism the Cloze Control provides a slow, controlled soft door closing to eliminate premature wear. Extensive testing showed Anthony’s proprietary dampening technology increases gasket life over 100 percent resulting in decreased maintenance, parts and energy costs.

“Anthony innovated the Cloze Control based on customer needs and desire to enhance store profitability and improve upon the customers shopping experience,” said Anthony President Craig Little. “In today’s competitive environment of thin profit margins and consumer sensitivity, the Cloze Control is another step forward to in helping our customers meet their needs.”

Available as an option on new doors and as a retrofit for many existing Anthony cooler and freezer doors with aluminum frames, the Cloze Control can be ordered through or by calling 800-772-0900 (Part Number 04-21368-0001).
