Part of Devon Buy with Confidence

No quibble returns

I need to fit a door closer on my shop door. Our location is close to the sea in Cornwall and the door in question is facing the sea so the wind is an issue. The closer does not need to be so strong that customers think we are closed but I do need the door to close automatically behind them. When the door opens it goes back against a wall. Please advise!

The door closer we would recommend for your scenario would be the Geze TS4000.  It is fully adjustable in power size, so you’ll be able to set it up to operate exactly as you want it, and it’s easy to do – so you can personally set it to high power during windy spells and reduce the power when it’s calmer (watch the featured video for info on setting the power).  It also has the “back check” feature as standard, which stops the door slamming open onto a wall.

Do you also do sliding front doors for flats? The main door into my building is fine, but the door into my individual flat takes up a lot of the hall space when it opens! Do you sell sliding doors that would be safe and secure enough to be suitable for use as a front door, as that would help me immensely.

Unfortunately neither the sliding door gear nor pocket door gear we supply would be secure enough to use on a front door – the only sliding door locks we supply are 3 lever, so your insurance company wouldn’t rate them either (should be a 5 lever BS rated minimum).  Actually we don’t think you ought to put any sliding door there at all, because it cannot meet fire & smoke regulations.  Sorry!
