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.

Fitting a door closer to an outward opening upvc door

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: Recommend a door closer suitable for fitting to a PVC Front door? Fed up with kids slamming the door every time. Door opens inwards.

A: When choosing a door closer for a uPVC door, similar criteria apply to when choosing for a timber door; how wide is the door? What is its function? etc.  We suggest selecting a door closer which has an optional mounting plate and bolting through the door and the frame if possible.  Minimum specification a TS1500, but a TS2000NV or even TS4000 for a very wide door.  I’ve given you links to those three door closers on our website here, so you can read about them more.

Q: Do you supply a door closer for a upvc door?

January 14, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: Do you supply a door closer for a upvc door? 

A: Yes. When choosing a door closer for a uPVC door, similar criteria apply to when choosing for a timber door; how wide is the door? What is its function? Do they open out or open in? etc.  We suggest selecting a door closer which has an optional mounting plate and bolting through.  For outward opening doors, you’ll need to fit the closer to the frame and the arm to the door, and if its in a windy location, consider a back check door closer like the TS2000 BC or TS4000.
