The TS1500 door closer is what we seem keen on for our door pictured on my Flickr page, though I’m a little worried it will be an eyesore:-

Can I put a TS1500 door closer here?
Thanks for that flickr link.  A TS1500 is a good choice and can be dressed up with a matching cover & arm in polished brass for example.  Having a close look at the photo, we would like to suggest perhaps fitting the closer in the “Figure 66” position on the other side of the door.  This is because there is not very much space between the door and the wall (where the African head is) so the door will not open to 90°.  Also the top rail of the door is not very deep.  You can see what we mean by “Figure 66” by looking at this page link.

Q: I have a door that is a glass panel at the top. The wood above the glass to the door stop is approx 73mm. The door opens outwards. The door is on a warehouse and is used quite a lot by the public. I have brought 2 closers from my local DIY centre but they do not fit due to the narrow bit at the top. What do you recommend?

A:
There are two possible solutions; Option 1.) Using a door closer with a Drop Plate, e.g. the Geze TS2000NVBC (which is a really good mid-range, mid-price model) – the drop plate (shown above) allows the body to be set lower than the fixing positions, over the glass in this case, and it is an extra £18.00 + VAT.  Option 2.) Using a guide rail door closer, but buying the “L” version which is designed to be fitted in “Figure 66” – the body on the door and the guide rail on the frame.  You can see the Geze TS5000L at this link (scroll down to “L”), and then see the fitting guide showing Figure 66 mounting.

Q: Using Geze TS2000 door closers in the figure 66 position

I am trying to select some door closers for my scout hut. I have exterior double doors that open outwards so need a figure 66 type as shown in your diagrams.  Does the Geze TS2000 NV + BC come with the brackets necessary for this  please (I have a deep door frame head).  Also does it have the latching feature to hold the door open?
A: Yes, The TS2000NV/BC comes with the fixings for Figure 66 (a parallel arm mounting bracket).  There would be two ways to “latch” the doors in an open position.  One would be to use hold open arms for the closers (order separately). The second way would be to use the TS2000NV/BC door closers on the top of the door, and fit foot operated door holders to the base of the door.  This will only work if your floor surface is not much lower (i.e. a step down) than the base of the door.
