Is the GEZE TS3000 BC successfully fitted in this situation?

GEZE TS3000 BC
A correspondent has a double/glazed aluminium outward opening front porch door which gets taken by wind.  The standard stay fitted there breaks and is therefore in danger of damage.  He asked therefore if the GEZE TS3000 BC can be successfully fitted in this situation.  We said, “Assuming the danger of damage mentioned is to the door itself as it hits the reveal of the wall outside and/or to the hinges and frame when the wind levers the door out against the reveal, and you take into account that the GEZE TS3000 BC indeed any guide rail door closer, permits the door to open only to 120° maximum. “BC” refers to “back check” which will help in this case by providing resistance when the wind opens the door, however there will be extra force on the door which still has to be born by the closer and the hinges.  Since the door closer will be fitted to the opposite hinge side of door (push side) Figure 61 fixing will have to be used.  It is necessary to check there is enough room on the frame for the body of the closer, and we strongly recommended buying a mounting plate, bolting through the frame when fitting.  With all these caveats taken into careful onsideration, the TS3000 BC is theoretically a good choice for our correspondent’s scenario.

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.

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?

         drop-plate
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.
