I’m looking for door closers for a pair of two-way swing doors. Floor springs are one option, but is there another option that would prevent free swinging but return the doors to the closed position? The doors are internal church ones, oak with glass panels, not very wide or heavy.
I think you may be right that floor spring door closers (e.g. Geze TS500 NV) would probably be the best option for your double action doors. The only other possibility is a concealed closer (e.g. The Geze Boxer) fitted into … Continue reading
I have a dog that lets itself in through an external door. Is there a door closer that I could easily activate in winter (when I would like the door to close after the dog comes in) but which could be set to leave the door free in summer?
There are two ways of tackling this, depending on your budget. The “deluxe” solution would be to use an electro-magnetic door closer (the Geze TS4000 EFS) with a PSU, the current to which would be switched ON in summer, so … Continue reading

Probably the best solution is the Foldaside 240 system You could use either the hinges or pivoted systems but the hinged system requires the first door (the one attached to the frame) to be 29mm plus half the door thickness … Continue reading
I want a panic push bar for a single timber door, but we also require to gain access from the outside using a lock with key. What do you recommend?
Depending on the answer to this question; Do you want the door to lock behind you, after you’ve entered with the key OR do you want to have to re-lock it with the key? If you want it lock automatically, … Continue reading

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:-
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 … Continue reading
The best material to use is a 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 … Continue reading
