…I would like to remove the chain closer and replace it with an overhead closer with speed and latching control.  Can you recommend a suitable closer from the Geze range?
At 27″ wide, your door is on the narrow side, so we’d recommend a door closer which has some adjustability on the power, because you don’t want it to be too stiff to push open.  The Geze TS1500 is a good door closer, power size 3 & 4 by template, and at the reasonable end of the price range.  The Geze TS2000 NV is power size 2-4 adjustable, which you will find more flexible, but it’s more pricey.  Both of these closers have adjustable speed and latching action control.

Which door closers – our doors are hardwood 45mm x 840mm x 1981mm, we are not sure if Geze TS1000 will be sufficient or if we will need Geze TS1500. Please could you advise?

The TS1000 door closers are perfectly adequate to cope with fire rated doors up to 900mm wide.  Geze TS1500‘s are able to cope with a wider range of door sizes, and are a little more attractive to look at.  The Eurospec F2003 is another suitable choice, as is the Briton 121.CE.

I own a pub and would like 4 door closers. Would we be okay with the light commercial closers? Do they have a suggested number of openings and closings over their lifetime?

We would suggest either a Eurospec T2024 door closer or the Geze TS1500 which is tested to half a million cycles.  The Eurospec door closer will be more suitable for narrow doors (700-800mm aprox.), as you can set them to the lower power size 2, but both closers will cope with up to 1100mm wide fire doors.  You can see links to those items in the text.   You should expect a good life expectancy from both these door closers.
