Please advise on the sliding folding doors we want to use them on external 3 x 4m is there a way of waterproofing them? And can these be without wood, just glass?

The only door kits we do which include weather seals for external doors are the TIWI sliding & folding doors.  However it is for timber framed doors only, glazed is OK.  We don’t know of a standard kit for this job, we think you’ll have more luck with a bespoke architectural glass supplier.

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°.
