Under the bonnet of a TS3000V – how to adjust the power, closing speed and latching action.

We looked under the hood (or slide plate to give it the correct name) of a GEZE TS3000V door closer to photograph the fitting holes and adjustment screws, here’s what you’ll find there.  Its very similar to the TS2000NVBC  but they are not interchangeable with each others arms & guide rails because the spindles are different, they’re hexagon on the TS3000, but splined on the TS2000.

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’m looking for a door closer for a balcony door that opens out. Since we have blinds on the inside the closer would ideally be on the outside so would need to be weatherproof (very exposed position). Also need a hold open just past 90 degrees. What would you recommend?

To fit a door closer outside on the pull (hinges visible) side of the door is not a problem.  Corrosion resistance like this can only be achieved with a “Wetroom” finish.  I’d recommend FIRSTLY EITHER:- a Geze TS4000 body only “Wetroom” door closer with a hold open arm in “Wetroom” finish.  OR SECONDLY:- you could fit a guide rail door closer on the inside of the door with a mechanical hold open, then the arm will not stick out and catch on the blinds.  For that you’d need the TS3000V body only, the Rail & arm opposite hinge side and the Mechanical hold open device.  However, is there any danger of the wind picking the door up and slamming it open?  If so, then the FIRST option would be better because that door closer has back check as standard.  If you use a guide rail closer in that situation then a gust of wind could break the door closer at 120°.
