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. 

I need a door closer that is able to close a steel door which is 400kg in weight. The door size is w1000mm x h2050mm.

We recommend looking at a Geze TS4000 tandem (power 7-13), or a TS4000 power 5-7, and caution that this door will be very heavy to open.  You can buy them online here, follow the links in the text.

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.

I need to fit a door closer on my shop door. Our location is close to the sea in Cornwall and the door in question is facing the sea so the wind is an issue. The closer does not need to be so strong that customers think we are closed but I do need the door to close automatically behind them. When the door opens it goes back against a wall. Please advise!

The door closer we would recommend for your scenario would be the Geze TS4000.  It is fully adjustable in power size, so you’ll be able to set it up to operate exactly as you want it, and it’s easy to do – so you can personally set it to high power during windy spells and reduce the power when it’s calmer (watch the featured video for info on setting the power).  It also has the “back check” feature as standard, which stops the door slamming open onto a wall.

Q: I am looking for a door opening rate, and travel extent, restrainer to limit the RATE at which the wind could snatch an outward opening patio door. Closing force should be low or zero. Do any door closers do this? Could any be mounted in reverse to achieve this?

Closing force should be low or zero. Do any door closers do this? Could any be mounted in reverse to achieve this? 

A: What you’re looking for is a “back check” door closer.  This feature dampens or brakes the opening, as well as controlling the close as a normal door closer.  You can look at the TS2000NVBC or the TS4000 which comes with back check as a standard feature. The TS4000 can be adjusted down to closing power 1, which is the lowest force available.

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: 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)

I am trying to find a device that will stop doors slamming in a breeze – fire doors in a factory that slam closed. Do you sell dampers or an approriate soft closing device?

January 21, 2011 by · Comments Off on I am trying to find a device that will stop doors slamming in a breeze – fire doors in a factory that slam closed. Do you sell dampers or an approriate soft closing device? 

A good quality door closer will do that job.  Please see the link to our heavy duty door closers, and I suggest you look at the Geze TS4000 or the Geze TS2000 BC (back check stops the door slamming open as well as slamming closed, and it’s a standard feature on the TS4000).

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.
