How to change the power setting on a GEZE TS1500 door closer

January 9, 2014 by · Comments Off on How to change the power setting on a GEZE TS1500 door closer 

Geze TS1500 shoe position

There are two power settings and changing them is all about the position of the arm.  The part of the arm which fixes to the frame (in figure 1, standard, fitting) is called the shoe.  If the “toe” of the shoe is pointing towards the hinge side of the frame, the power is set on power 3 to EN1154 (~WEAK), if the “toe” is pointing away from the hinge side of the frame, power is set on power 4 to EN1154 (~STRONG).  To change the power setting, simply dismantle the arm using the black hexagon headed bolt, and remove the shoe end of the arm, replacing it turned 180º – see pictures A & B above.  Source: Geze’s fitting pdf, (page 2, paragraph 2) see here.

The TS1500 door closer is what we seem keen on for our door pictured on my Flickr page, though I’m a little worried it will be an eyesore:-

Can I put a TS1500 door closer here?
Thanks for that flickr link.  A TS1500 is a good choice and can be dressed up with a matching cover & arm in polished brass for example.  Having a close look at the photo, we would like to suggest perhaps fitting the closer in the “Figure 66” position on the other side of the door.  This is because there is not very much space between the door and the wall (where the African head is) so the door will not open to 90°.  Also the top rail of the door is not very deep.  You can see what we mean by “Figure 66” by looking at this page link.

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.

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.

July 21, 2011 by · Comments Off on 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: Please advise which make and model of door closer would be most suitable for a regularly used internal office fire door?

January 17, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: Please advise which make and model of door closer would be most suitable for a regularly used internal office fire door? 

A: Depending upon the traffic experienced by this door AND the type of seals (fire & smoke, acoustic etc?) the best and most adjustable door closer for this situation is the Geze TS4000 which is rated for a million cycles.  If the door simply has intumescent strip (no brushes), then a Geze TS2000 or even a Geze TS1500 (rated to half a million cycles) will be perfectly satisfactory and give good service.

…on one of them the bolt (the one with ratchet-type notches around the head) which goes through the arm and into the rectangular device has broken in two. Can you supply a replacement bolt please, for what is otherwise a perfectly good piece of equipment?
There is available a screw pack for the TS1500 which contains spares of all fixings etc. used on the closer, and contains the bolt you are describing.  The packs are £3.00 each + VAT and you’ll have to contact the office to order as they’re not on the web site!

Help! Our door closer slams the door

November 24, 2010 by · Comments Off on Help! Our door closer slams the door 

…My freeholder has just fitted a door closer at my request as the main door slams when people close it. However, the one they have fitted has not remedied the problem as the door needs to be closed very gently to eliminate the slam (and rattle of glass in the door).  Do you have a door closer which can move extremely slowly but also push a door closed??
If it is a hydraulic door closer they’ve fitted, it should have some adjustability on the closing speed.  Basically you want to slow down the speed and reduce, or turn off, the latching action.  Most door closers should offer this adjustability.  Our Geze TS4000 video shows the adjustment of this high use, heavy duty, fully adjustable door closer, which might give your fitter some assistance.  Any of the Geze door closers from TS1500 up (depending upon the width of your door) should give you a good result.

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

October 10, 2010 by · Comments Off on 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.

We have an internal door which is apt to slam when external doors are opened. Would the Geze TS1500 door closer actually stop a door from slamming?

Yes, the TS1500 will control the close, it has hydraulic adjustable closing speed, so you will be able to stop the door slamming.

We have a GEZE door closer fitted to one of a large complex of apartments constructed about 2002/2003. Not able to identify model. The door closes very quickly and with a bang. Would appreciate advice on how to adjust to operate better.

You can identify Geze door closers by their body size if nothing else is visible; for example the body of a TS4000 is 287mm long, a TS2000 is 226mm long and a TS1500 is 177mm long.  The door “closing very quickly and with a bang” definitely doesn’t sound right, in fact it would do that if all the oil had leaked out of it (which might happen if it has been over-adjusted for closing speed, etc).  If you can identify which closer it is from its size, we can give some more help about adjustment, or check the relevant product page here on the website for technical pdfs.
