I live in a flat of a converted Victorian house with a grand, big communal front door. Which is slammed a lot! I was looking at these door closers and wondered if you could recommend one? The door closes quite easily when pushed - but obviously we need to be sure that the closer will consistently do that. Any ideas?
April 2, 2010 by EditorA door closer would be a good solution for your slamming problem. For a large door (and width is the most important dimension to consider) you might go for a medium to heavy duty door closer like the TS2000 or the TS2000NV or even the lighter duty TS1500. You can ready about the special features of each of these door closers by looking at each product page on our website. As you mention it's a grand Victorian door, you might also consider going for an attractive matching polished brass cover & arm to give the illusion it's a period feature. If you need any more help, do get in touch.
I'm looking to purchase a door closer for a busy commercial building. It needs to be heavy duty and big and able to handle a weight of 100kg. Do you have anything that would be suitable?
April 4, 2010 by EditorWe would recommend either the Geze TS5000 guide rail door closer, or the Geze TS4000 standard arm door closer, both are adjustable power size 1 - 6, with a range of excellent features and suitable for very high usage, heavy duty doors. They are stock items you can buy here.
April 6, 2010 by EditorYou can use any standard arm door closer which has sufficient "play" in the elbow of the arm. It is not an ideal solution, as the door closer needs to be very carefully sited so that the arm does not catch on the top of the door. The shoe of the arm may need to be located slightly higher on the frame than is usual. A Geze TS2000 or TS4000 would probably be fine for this fitting.
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?
April 7, 2010 by helenTo 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°.
April 10, 2010 by EditorThe finished wall thickness outside the Hideaway pocket door kit will be 115 - 120mm (depending whether you use the packer which comes in the kit or not). This assumes 2 x 12.5mm thick wall boards are used.
April 11, 2010 by EditorThe finishes available are bright zinc plate, satin zinc plate, electro brass plate, powder coated, polished chrome, antique bronze, simulated brushed stainless, satin stainless steel and mirror polished stainless steel.
April 13, 2010 by helen(from Peter) Q: I need to replace a damaged Exidor panic bar assembly for a Tesco’s store. I do not know which model it is so I have included a photo to help identify it.

I am using 2120mm high doors (PVC edged - 18mm board) at 560 wide. This is above the max height recommendation of 2m for the 'twin 60', will this be ok? As a matter of interest (for future reference) would I be able to use the 'Jason Bottom Rolling Sliding Door Gear' for doors of 2120 x 560 (18mm). Again I am aware that the height is well above the recommended 1.5m but I believe that the weight of the doors themselves would be less than the max 25kg stated.
April 16, 2010 by EditorThe maximum dimensions of doors for Twin 60 and Jason recommended by the manufacturer Coburn is a guideline only. According to Coburn's technical department, it was laid down by the original designer of the system and any evidence & reasoning for them has been lost to time. The weight is by far the most important measurement of the door. If your doors are MDF then, at 2120 x 560 x 18mm, your doors should weigh approximately 17 kg each.
Has the volcanic eruption in Iceland of Eyjafjallajokull had any impact on your delivery lead times?

I have a wardrobe made in Germany (no name), one of the door wheel runners has broken, it is 2.1/4" diameter, could you assist please?
April 23, 2010 by EditorWe can only supply sliding door spares (in the form of extra door packs) for sliding door gear made by Geze (who are German) and Coburn (who aren't). Unless your sliding door gear looks exactly like that shown in the illustrations on our website, we will not be able to help. See the link here to view some of our sliding door kits.
April 26, 2010 by EditorThank you for your enquiry. The weight limit on the Coburn Hush is per door.
Q: What is the best product for a recessed sliding door i.e. one that is concealed within a partition wall, I will be using a 24" x 78" door?
April 27, 2010 by EditorA: We supply two designs of pocket door gear, the iMpero pocket door gear is the best one as far as wall reinforcement, engineering of mechanism, range of sizes, optional extras etc are concerned, and the Hideaway is the best one if you're on a tight budget, still well made and versatile.
I want to order a track for a set of double wooden interior sliding doors but I only seem to be able to find sets with enough pieces for one door. How do I get the extra hangers, floor guide etc?
April 29, 2010 by EditorWe assume you are looking at the Rollan or Perlan sliding door gear, and making a double sliding door set? You'll simply need to buy an extra door pack, listed under the components on each page.
