What makes The GEZE TS2000NVBC our bestselling door closer?

July 4, 2013 by · Comments Off on What makes The GEZE TS2000NVBC our bestselling door closer? 

Geze TS2000 NVBC door closer
It’s the versatility and reliability, its hard wearing but gentle action we love.  While ticking all the regulatory boxes of fire regs, DDA, CE marking etc, it is almost always the best door closer in so many ways.  Let me tell you its story; GEZE designed the TS4000 model with power adjustability, back check as standard, and all the controls on the body of the closer to make installation and set up a dream, but they realised not all that many doors called for the maximum power setting of 6 (54Mn) suitable for a door of 1400mm wide.  So they came up with the TS2000NVBC which combined all the excellent features of the TS4000 within the body size of the TS2000, thus allowing an adjustable power setting of 2 – 4 (13Nm – 26Nm).  Remember the important figure you’re looking for on a standard sized fire door is 18Nm, which is power size 3.  Setting up one of these is easy, no longer do you have to move the body along the door to change the power, as with the older style TS2000V.  It has all the other features at your command too – adjustable closing speed, adjustable back check and adjustable latching action – making this door closer our most popular and well loved model. 

Q: I have a door that is a glass panel at the top. The wood above the glass to the door stop is approx 73mm. The door opens outwards. The door is on a warehouse and is used quite a lot by the public. I have brought 2 closers from my local DIY centre but they do not fit due to the narrow bit at the top. What do you recommend?

         drop-plate
A:
There are two possible solutions; Option 1.) Using a door closer with a Drop Plate, e.g. the Geze TS2000NVBC (which is a really good mid-range, mid-price model) – the drop plate (shown above) allows the body to be set lower than the fixing positions, over the glass in this case, and it is an extra £18.00 + VAT.  Option 2.) Using a guide rail door closer, but buying the “L” version which is designed to be fitted in “Figure 66” – the body on the door and the guide rail on the frame.  You can see the Geze TS5000L at this link (scroll down to “L”), and then see the fitting guide showing Figure 66 mounting.

Q: Could you provide adjustment instructions for your medium/heavy duty fire door closure. Unit is 9″+. Not sure if it’s working or not?

August 29, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: Could you provide adjustment instructions for your medium/heavy duty fire door closure. Unit is 9″+. Not sure if it’s working or not? 

A: We think you may be describing a Geze TS2000 door closer, the body of which is 226mm long (9″ = 229mm).  You can see some fitting and adjusting information on the pdfs at the bottom of the web page .  If you’re still struggling, do get in touch on the phone and we’ll help if we can.here

Q: What does “back check” mean on heavy duty door closers?

June 15, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: What does “back check” mean on heavy duty door closers? 

A:Back Check” stops the door slamming open; two examples:- on an external door in a windy location back check prevents the wind from “picking up” and opening the door (which might damage the frame at the hinges); or when there is a wall at 90° from the door back check stops damage to the wall & door handles by  preventing slamming open.  It’s a standard feature on both the Geze TS4000 door closer and the Geze TS2000NVBC, it’s an optional extra with the Geze TS2000 .

I have a hotel fire door which opens 180° and obviously needs a door closer. What product can I use?

January 28, 2011 by · Comments Off on I have a hotel fire door which opens 180° and obviously needs a door closer. What product can I use? 

The Geze TS2000 door closer will do that, as will the Geze TS4000, we suggest you decide between them by the usual criteria (width of door, frequency of use, ease of power adjustment, your budget, etc)

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.

Q: Using Geze TS2000 door closers in the figure 66 position

January 4, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: Using Geze TS2000 door closers in the figure 66 position 

I am trying to select some door closers for my scout hut. I have exterior double doors that open outwards so need a figure 66 type as shown in your diagrams.  Does the Geze TS2000 NV + BC come with the brackets necessary for this  please (I have a deep door frame head).  Also does it have the latching feature to hold the door open?
A: Yes, The TS2000NV/BC comes with the fixings for Figure 66 (a parallel arm mounting bracket).  There would be two ways to “latch” the doors in an open position.  One would be to use hold open arms for the closers (order separately). The second way would be to use the TS2000NV/BC door closers on the top of the door, and fit foot operated door holders to the base of the door.  This will only work if your floor surface is not much lower (i.e. a step down) than the base of the door.

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.

Q: I need to adjust some fire doors which are all fitted with Geze TS2000 closers, we can adjust the speed but not the latch speed, can you advise us?

August 13, 2010 by · Comments Off on Q: I need to adjust some fire doors which are all fitted with Geze TS2000 closers, we can adjust the speed but not the latch speed, can you advise us? 

A: The latching adjustment for a TS2000 is set by changing the position of the arm, see this link to our web page, then scroll to the bottom and look at the Fitting pdf, it’s shown on page 2 of 6.  I have summarised the information in this little sketch:-

Recommend a door closer?

June 3, 2010 by · Comments Off on Recommend a door closer? 

Q: (from Guy) I need a door closer that is hidden or discreet and that closes softly [probably hydraulic?] to fit an old georgian 4-panel door and frame.  The problem is the door is slammed it will crack shower tiles on the adjacent wall because the wall is flimsy and moves a little in my ancient building.  Any suggestions?
A: (from Doorstuff) For a discreet door closer, you might want to go for a concealed door closer either at the jamb (AA145) or at the head of the door (the Boxer), but there needs to be enough thickness of wood for this to be an option.  See the link to our page about concealed closers here, and click through the links to view the products.  For a large door (and width is the most important dimension to consider) which can’t take a concealed closer, you might go for a medium to heavy duty door closer like the TS2000 or the TS2000NV or even the lighter duty TS1500.  As you mention it’s an old Georgian door, you might also consider going for an attractive matching polished brass cover & arm to give the illusion it’s a period feature.  See the link to our page about medium duty door closers here, and click through the links to view the products.  Any of these closers can be set to close really softly with careful attention to the adjustment instructions.
