Is there a special tool required to install the AA45 concealed door closer. I was wondering how you open and fix the second face against the spring tension?

Yes, they come with a small metal retainer which holds the chain out while you fit it.  You’ll need to attach the plate to the frame (or a spare bit of wood) then pull the chain out as far as it’ll come and slip in the retainer.  Next detach the plate from the frame and fit the door closer into the door, then finally re-attach the plate to the frame and remove the retainer, so the spring can re-tension the chain.

Can you confirm the AA45 concealed door closers in silver will work for a FD30 door?

Yes, these are suitable for use on an FD30 door.  Remember, the fire-containing property of a door is reliant on the whole set up of the door hardware working correctly together, so be sure to check the operation after fitting your approved door closers.

A device to help fit AA45 door closers?

I would like to order some AA45 door closers to replace the ones in my flat, but I don’t know how I will be able to fit them. When I tried to remove one of the old ones it was under great tension and I broke it whilst removing.  Do they come with some kind of device that takes the tension up whilst fitting?
Yes, they come with a small metal retainer which holds the chain out while you fit it.
