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?

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: 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 .

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.

I’m looking for a door closer for the front door of my little shop. I think something like the Geze TS1500 will be suitable. The thing that’s worrying me is that the door is directly under a thick lintel. There’s only 30mm from the top of the door to the underside of the lintel. Is this enough space to fit a TS1500?

We assume that the door is inward opening and therefore the door closer will be fitted to the inside of the door (PULL side)?  Then the Geze TS1500 will be a good door closer for you if there’s enough room on the door for the body, the arm will fit comfortably on the 30mm deep transom beneath your lintel.  One consideration I would raise – does your lintel continue right around the door down to the floor (called the reveal) – because if so, then your door closer body fitted in the correct position might hit the wall reveal before reaching 90° open.  If this applies to your scenario, then we would recommend going for an adjustable door closer like the Geze TS2000 NV which could be positioned further along the door and adjusted to a lower power setting to compensate.  The Geze TS3000V guide rail door closer would also be suitable as it is also adjustable power size 1-4.  I’ve made those links to those pages on our website, where you can read about all their features.

I live in a flat of a converted Victorian house with a grand, big communal front door. Which is slammed a lot! I was looking at these door closers and wondered if you could recommend one? The door closes quite easily when pushed – but obviously we need to be sure that the closer will consistently do that. Any ideas?
