Would the T2024 door closer be OK for a light (1″ thick) pine bedroom door?

General door closers usually come in fixed power size 3, which ensures they are strong enough to meet fire regulations for closing large fire doors up to about 900mm wide.  If this is the type you’ve previously fitted, then the fixed power size is your problem – this makes them too strong for children and less-abled people to push open.  The T2024 is adjustable by template down to power size 2, which will definitely be an improvement.  More expensive options would be the (larger bodied) TS4000 which is adjustable down to power size 1, or the (smaller bodied) TS3000B cam action guide rail door closer, which opens easily and works in a more efficient way.

I am looking for a door closer for our fire door that goes from utility room to the integral garage, currently it operates with a spring loaded device (not adjustable) that slams the door shut with a big bang. Can you recommend a door closer which would close the door without slamming it shut?

An overhead hydraulic door closer would be a good solution for your slamming problem.  For a large fire door (and width is the most important dimension to consider) you might go for a medium to heavy duty door closer like the GEZE TS4000 or the TS2000NV.  For a narrower door; the domestic closers Eurospec F2003 or T2024 would be more economical.  You can read about the special features of each of these door closers by clicking through the links.  As you mention it’s in your house, the GEZE door closers I mentioned have the option of upgrading to a matching polished cover & arm (can be brass or stainless steel) which you might want to consider.
