An example of this being used is in a primary school when code entry is used during the day, but free passage is set for parent drop off and collection times.

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 EditorA: 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.
July 28, 2011 by EditorA: The mounting plate, for clarification, is a thin metal plate the same size as the body of the closer. It is good to use one for example on a uPVC door because it has lots of pre-drilled holes to enable a really firm positioning before attaching the door closer body to the plate through the ready tapped holes. Because uPVC doors and frames are often hollow in section, we recommend drilling and fixing through to the other side, reinforcing the fixing with large washers or even metal plates. (You can paint over them in white to obscure them.)
