hinge made of brass plated with polished chrome. Brass is a highly corrosion-resistant material, which is why it's used a lot in boats. However, it does tarnish and the surface of raw brass will naturally begin to look green and unpleasant over time, without the body of the material being affected. With a very stable oxide layer of Polished Chrome on top of the brass you can be confident that neither corrosion nor tarnishing will take place on the hinge.
The TS1500 door closer is what we seem keen on for our door pictured on my Flickr page, though I'm a little worried it will be an eyesore:-Thanks for that flickr link. A TS1500 is a good choice and can be dressed up with a matching cover & arm in polished brass for example. Having a close look at the photo, we would like to suggest perhaps fitting the closer in the "Figure 66" position on the other side of the door. This is because there is not very much space between the door and the wall (where the African head is) so the door will not open to 90°. Also the top rail of the door is not very deep. You can see what we mean by "Figure 66" by looking at this page link.

If you already have equal width doors you would need to go for the pivoted system.

We recently bought your R40.16 timber sliding door kits up to 40kg, but we've changed the doors to heavy pine ones as they're going to have regular use. Do you have anything suitable?extra door packs, this will give you the wheels etc to run in the tracks, which are strong enough to support your doors.

Our local club has an external opening emergency exit door which is fitted with an Exidor panic bar on the inside.

This needs to be locked at night. What can we use?door closer, such as the Geze TS2000, used in combination with an outside access device, such as the Exidor 322EC lockable door handle which will be freely usable during club opening hours, then locked at night.
rebated doors? Rebated double doors have a lip on the vertical edge where they meet, called a "rebated meeting stile". Shown in the photo below, there is a primary or leading leaf (A) which can open and close without effecting the secondary or following leaf (B).
Please can you advise me as to which sort of door closer I should buy; I have two doors which are 1100mm wide solid heavyish doors. I want them to be easily opened by the tenants, and not to slam closed, but to close slowly and fully?
We are considering your Foldaside 100, but our present sliding folding gear is top hanging and has no bottom guide rail. At the bottom there is a join of two carpets and a metal strip to prevent the edges fraying. The underlying floor is also concrete and it would therefore be difficult to create a 15mm groove in to which to set the bottom guide. Is the bottom guide strictly necessary in this case please?
I have a double/glazed aluminium outward opening front porch door which gets taken by wind. The standard stay fitted breaks and is therefore in danger of damage. Is the GEZE TS3000 BC successfully fitted in this situation?
Is there a special tool required to install the AA45 concealed door closer. I was wondering how you open and fix the second face against the spring tension?

Door assemblies are still legal after 1 July 2013. And they will stay legal for the foreseeable future. Door assemblies are NOT doorsets - so CE marking doesn’t apply to them. You can’t tell the difference between doorsets and door assemblies just by looking at them. It’s how they’re supplied that matters. If it all comes from one source – usually a doorset manufacturer – then it’s a doorset. If various trades supply individual parts or components for assembly on site, then it’s a door assembly. Traditionally, the majority of timber doors in the UK have been supplied as door assemblies, with their hardware coming from an architectural ironmonger who has prepared and/or priced a schedule of ironmongery. Steel and aluminium doors have traditionally been supplied as doorsets, though sometimes the ironmonger gets to supply cylinders which are under MK, and perhaps operating furniture such as levers or pull handles, to match the rest of the project. In future, any doorset which falls under the scope of a harmonised standard will be supplied complete by the manufacturer, and will be CE marked by them. Door assemblies do not fall under the scope of any doorset standard – they can’t, they’re door assemblies. It will remain legal to supply door assemblies in the UK.

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.
