Fitting a door closer to an outward opening upvc door

March 26, 2014 by · Comments Off on Fitting a door closer to an outward opening upvc door 

uPVC door - inside view

Must be fitted in the Fig 61 position – with the door closer body on the frame and the arm on the door – so check that there’s room for it there.  An additional mounting plate is definitely recommended for any door closer fitted to a uPVC door, as this will enable a firm fixing to be made.  Preferably fix by bolting right through the uPVC section with long bolts and nice flat washers on the outside to spread the forces (not supplied).  We also recommend doing the same sort of reinforcement with the fixing for the arm.

Q: (from Gwyn) I am looking for guided rail door closers for two disabled toilets and a standard toilet for a Church building.

A: We can certainly help you choose the best door closers for those particular doors, but it might be a good idea to discuss your requirements with us to be sure of getting the best one.  Ones which might be worthy of consideration in the meantime are the Geze TS3000B (easiest mechanical door closer to push when opening), or the Geze TS5000S delayed action (delayed action allows time for a wheelchair user to go through before closing).

I’m looking for a door closer for a balcony door that opens out. Since we have blinds on the inside the closer would ideally be on the outside so would need to be weatherproof (very exposed position). Also need a hold open just past 90 degrees. What would you recommend?

To fit a door closer outside on the pull (hinges visible) side of the door is not a problem.  Corrosion resistance like this can only be achieved with a “Wetroom” finish.  I’d recommend FIRSTLY EITHER:- a Geze TS4000 body only “Wetroom” door closer with a hold open arm in “Wetroom” finish.  OR SECONDLY:- you could fit a guide rail door closer on the inside of the door with a mechanical hold open, then the arm will not stick out and catch on the blinds.  For that you’d need the TS3000V body only, the Rail & arm opposite hinge side and the Mechanical hold open device.  However, is there any danger of the wind picking the door up and slamming it open?  If so, then the FIRST option would be better because that door closer has back check as standard.  If you use a guide rail closer in that situation then a gust of wind could break the door closer at 120°.

Q: (from Lee) I am looking to replace an “arrow” series 400 slide arm door closer but have been unable to find a supplier, are you able to help?
A: (from Doorstuff) I’m sorry, we do not stock Arrow door closers, we are a Geze distributor.  Our range of guide rail door closers can be seen here.
