Behind It All: Door Concealer Enhances Aria Las Vegas

Perko Power controlled, concealed door closers have been used to ensure that interiors of guest rooms retain the high-end appearance intended by their designers. The ARIA Resort and Casino, part of the $8.5 billion CityCenter in Las Vegas, was designed by architects, Pelli Clarke Pelli, consists of two 60-story curvilinear glass towers, which house some 4,004 rooms, including 568 suites, most exclusive of which are the Penthouse suites and Sky Villas.

Perko Power door closers were employed to great effect. With individual interiors created to reflect modern, high-end luxury, designers were keen to ensure that nothing spoiled the overall aesthetics and relaxing ambience of the villas and penthouses. This desire extended to the selection of the door closers.

"Floor closers would not work with the specified structural floor design and the externally fitted control boxes and arms of traditional surface-mounted door closers would have spoiled the appearance of the doors and interiors, presenting a functional, somewhat institutionalised atmosphere," said Rick Page of door supplier, Calply. "This was, naturally, not what was desired in such exclusive suites."
