Wall mounted electromagnetic door hold open devices are used for holding open fire doors which have mechanical door closers fitted. They must be connected to a smoke detection system or fire alarm panel which, in the case of fire, interrupts the clamping power supply.  Thus the door is released and is closed by the door closer.  Suitable for use with power size 3-6 door closers, suitable for use on timber doors of any width up to 1450mm, 24v lower power unit, integrated test button on the unit, to be used with counter plate C or counter plate E for extreme angles.

What non-electrical door closer is suitable to stay open for a wheelchair user?

There are two door closers you might consider for this application, one is the Geze TS4000 S which has delayed action.  The delayed action can be set to give up to 90 seconds delay before the door closes, which may be time to permit disabled access.  The second door closer to consider is the Geze TS5000 with an optional extra mechanical hold open device.  This device is set into the guide rail and will hold the door open until the door is given a physical pull to start the close.

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°.
