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

We would like to fit concealed door closers to our back doors which regularly slam shut and consequently have cracked the external render around our door frames at our house. We are interested in the GEZE Boxer closers but would be grateful if you could advise if they are suitable for heavy wooden doors. Also can you advise if you can adjust the speed of close with these closers to provide a slow final shut to the door into the door-frame?

Geze Boxers are ideal for solid wooden doors.  The version with power size 3 – 6 is suitable for doors with a leaf thickness of at least 50mm, maximum weight of 180kg and leaf width of no greater than 1400mm.  … Continue reading

I’m trying to replace a concealed door closer which I believe is a Geze Boxer. The body of the one I have measures 240mm long, but on the pdf you show the length to be 286m, it’d the same on Geze’s own website, and everywhere else I’ve looked. Please help?

On the technical drawing on Geze’s pdf, the prominent dimension 286m appears to be the length of the body, but in fact it refers to the MORTICE length, and the Geze Boxer body length IS 240mm as you have measured.
