Q: Recommend a door closer for an arched door?

August 29, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: Recommend a door closer for an arched door? 

A: For a heavy arched door you’ll need to use EITHER:- a concealed jamb door closer such as the AA145 which may be powerful enough, but check.   OR:- a floor spring door closer, sunk into the floor at the hinge side of the door, check out the product pages here on the website for more information.

Can a concealed door closer be fitted in the top jamb of an outward opening porch door?

The only door closer which can be concealed in the top of a timber door would be the Geze Boxer, however this is not suitable to be used on an external door, so I don’t know what to suggest.  If it doesn’t need to be concealed then a normal door closer would be OK, fitted inside the porch in the Figure 61 position, with the body on the door and the arm on the frame.

I’m trying to replace a concealed door closer which I believe is a Geze Boxer. The body of the one I have measures 240mm long, but on the pdf you show the length to be 286m, it’d the same on Geze’s own website, and everywhere else I’ve looked. Please help?

On the technical drawing on Geze’s pdf, the prominent dimension 286m appears to be the length of the body, but in fact it refers to the MORTICE length, and the Geze Boxer body length IS 240mm as you have measured.

As long as this is a single action door, the only option for this door is a floor spring door closer. Read about them here, or get in touch for more information.

Recommend a door closer?

Q: (from Guy) I need a door closer that is hidden or discreet and that closes softly [probably hydraulic?] to fit an old georgian 4-panel door and frame.  The problem is the door is slammed it will crack shower tiles on the adjacent wall because the wall is flimsy and moves a little in my ancient building.  Any suggestions?
A: (from Doorstuff) For a discreet door closer, you might want to go for a concealed door closer either at the jamb (AA145) or at the head of the door (the Boxer), but there needs to be enough thickness of wood for this to be an option.  See the link to our page about concealed closers here, and click through the links to view the products.  For a large door (and width is the most important dimension to consider) which can’t take a concealed closer, you might go for a medium to heavy duty door closer like the TS2000 or the TS2000NV or even the lighter duty TS1500.  As you mention it’s an old Georgian door, you might also consider going for an attractive matching polished brass cover & arm to give the illusion it’s a period feature.  See the link to our page about medium duty door closers here, and click through the links to view the products.  Any of these closers can be set to close really softly with careful attention to the adjustment instructions.
