GEZE TS4000 door closer on a 1400mm wide door

June 24, 2014 by · Comments Off on GEZE TS4000 door closer on a 1400mm wide door 

FERRY DOOR 246

The GEZE TS4000 door closer can be used on doors up to 1400mm wide, as seen above on this Stenaline Ferry for the giant double doors on their fashion shop entrance.  TS4000 door closers come with adjustable closing force, optical strength indicator, back check, latching action and all valve adjustments on the front of the mechanism.  On these doors the power would be set up to EN 6, and they are being used in conjunction with foot operated door holders while the store is open.  Can be used for right and left hand doors in figure 1, 61 & 66 applications.

Building Regulations Part E on the transmission of sound in a building

February 27, 2014 by · Comments Off on Building Regulations Part E on the transmission of sound in a building 

Building Regulations Approved document E
We have been asked by a customer about the communal exit/entrance door to his apartment block which closes with a loud bang. He had been told by the on site maintenance person that after he reduced the noise to an almost acceptable slam that there would be no further improvement or adjustment. Should it be technically possible to close this door silently onto its electronically controlled locking mechanism?  Is there any legally enforceable noise level the management company should operate too, and are products available that can achieve this?  The answers are “yes”, and “sort of yes”.   A heavy duty door closer like the Geze TS4000 adjusted correctly, is capable of closing a door strongly but silently.  You can see how the adjustment is crucial to the correct operation of the door closer by watching our video here on the web site.  Building Regulations Part E concern the transmission of sound within a building, there aren’t legally enforceable rules relating to door slamming, but the requirements of Part E are that noise which effects building users should be minimised as much as possible.

Please can you advise me as to which sort of door closer I should buy; I have two doors which are 1100mm wide solid heavyish doors. I want them to be easily opened by the tenants, and not to slam closed, but to close slowly and fully?

If the doors are going to get a lot of traffic, we’d recommend a GEZE TS4000, or at least a GEZE TS2000 NVBC (a door of 1100mm wide will require at least power size 4) but if there are any draught seals on the doors, it may need to be a higher power size.  If the area is prone to vandalism, then you might also consider having a guide rail door closer such as the GEZE TS5000, which has no projecting arm.

Would the T2024 door closer be OK for a light (1″ thick) pine bedroom door?

General door closers usually come in fixed power size 3, which ensures they are strong enough to meet fire regulations for closing large fire doors up to about 900mm wide.  If this is the type you’ve previously fitted, then the fixed power size is your problem – this makes them too strong for children and less-abled people to push open.  The T2024 is adjustable by template down to power size 2, which will definitely be an improvement.  More expensive options would be the (larger bodied) TS4000 which is adjustable down to power size 1, or the (smaller bodied) TS3000B cam action guide rail door closer, which opens easily and works in a more efficient way.
