I want my fire door to hold open at 90° until someone pulls it, then the door closer kicks in and closes it as normal. What product will do this?

Under Fire Regulations fire doors must not be held or propped open.  Without using an electromagnetic hold open door closer wired into the fire alarm, the only suggestion is to use a delayed action door closer, which can hold the door open for up to 90 seconds, then closing as normal.  I recommend the Geze TS4000S door closer.

What non-electrical door closer is suitable to stay open for a wheelchair user?

There are two door closers you might consider for this application, one is the Geze TS4000 S which has delayed action.  The delayed action can be set to give up to 90 seconds delay before the door closes, which may be time to permit disabled access.  The second door closer to consider is the Geze TS5000 with an optional extra mechanical hold open device.  This device is set into the guide rail and will hold the door open until the door is given a physical pull to start the close.
