Under the bonnet of a TS3000V – how to adjust the power, closing speed and latching action.

We looked under the hood (or slide plate to give it the correct name) of a GEZE TS3000V door closer to photograph the fitting holes and adjustment screws, here’s what you’ll find there.  Its very similar to the TS2000NVBC  but they are not interchangeable with each others arms & guide rails because the spindles are different, they’re hexagon on the TS3000, but splined on the TS2000.

…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.

How do I stop the door closer slamming the door?

Q: (from Costa) I have a door fitted with a Geze TS4000E door closer and I dont know how to perform the final slam adjustment. The door is shutting perfectly until the last 10 degrees or so when it just lets go and slams LOUD!  I have turned down the closing force and increased the resistance but as soon as it gets to that crucial 10 degree point it just lets go.  PLEASE HELP!
A: The latching adjustment (last 10° of the close) for a Geze TS4000E is set by changing the position of the arm, refer to the fitting instructions, or this quick sketch summarising the information may help:-

Can you recommend a door closer that would shut a residential property door as quietly and controlled as possible?

We recommend the Geze TS1500 as a good domestic door closer, it has variable closing force in two sizes, adjustable closing speed and adjustable hydraulic latching action and so gives plenty of controllability. If you are price conscious, the Eurospec F2003 door closer at £12.75 + VAT is also a good closer, less attractive to look at, but has a good degree of adjustability.

My office front door constantly slams as visitors don’t close it by hand, they just leave it to swing back. Do you have anything that can make the door close softly but not delay the closing too much as people come in quickly and don’t check whether it’s closed behind them and I’m concerned about security but can’t stand the constant noise and damage to the door. Can you suggest a solution?

A hydraulic overhead door closer with adjustable closing speed and adjustable latching action will solve your problem.  You can set the closing speed to fast, then use the latching action to give a slower firm close at the last 10° or so.  Which door closer you go for depends on all the normal considerations; door timber or uPVC, width of door, push or pull side, budget? etc.  A good place to start looking is the excellent Geze TS4000, which will be able to handle almost any situation, then you can look at the lower spec models depending on the considerations listed.
