Updated: Sep 7, 2022

Whether for private homes or contemporary office buildings, door closer systems from dormakaba are intelligent, integrated access solutions that combine consistency, convenience, design and premium quality.

The Dorma TS 68 was developed as a low cost door closer solution with a uniquely styled body appearance. Its nicely curved face sets it apart from other closers in the low cost segment.

If you need a door closer, you will need to know a few details. Not all door closers are the same. There are differences for specific needs, weights, and locations. Most important is what will the door in question be used for.

Need a door closer?

  • Is it a Fire Door Exit?

  • Is it for residential?

  • Is it for disabled access?

  • Is it for old and frail people?

  • Is it for high traffic areas?

  • Is it subjected to the elements?

  • How heavy is the door?

  • How wide is the door?

These questions and more are important and will help select the best door closer for your use.

Select the right door closer

We could sell you a door closer (with our eyes closed) or we could help you select the right door closer for the purpose it is intended for. We will ask you the questions. You can raise your own questions.

At Architectural Design Hardware we will help you find the right direction. Our showroom is open.

The wide-ranging product portfolio satisfies a broad spectrum of functional requirements and thus offers solutions for almost any individual door situation.

EN Ratings - choosing your door closer

Door Closers are rated by opening/closing force "Size". The Size ratings are from EN1 to EN6, with Size EN1 the weakest strength and Size EN6 the strongest. EN1 is also suitable for disabled door applications.

  • Size #1 = 0.45 of a kilogram closing force, minimum

  • Size #2 = 0.9 of a kilogram closing force, minimum ~standard door width ≤ 850 mm

  • Size #3 = 1.36 of a kilogram closing force, minimum ~standard door width ≤ 950 mm

  • Size #4 = 1.81 of a kilogram closing force, minimum ~standard door width ≤ 1100 mm

  • Size #5 = 2.26 of a kilogram closing force, minimum ~standard door width ≤ 1600 mm

  • Size #6 = 2.72 of a kilogram closing force, minimum ~standard door width ≤ 1600 mm

Many popular door closers have an adjustable open/close or latch speed setting. Example: If a door closer is listed with a open/close or latch speed of 3-6 then it is adjustable through the Power range of EN3 (1.36 kg of force) to EN6 (2.72 kg of force).

Locksets and hardware for doors and windows Part 5:

Controlled door closing devices (EN 1154:1997, MOD) EN 1154:1996 31 Scope This standard specifies requirements for controlled door closing devices for swing doors, such devices being mounted on or in the frame, on or in the door, or in the floor.

  1. The scope is limited to manually operated door closing devices where the energy for closing is generated by the user upon opening the door, such that when the door is released, it returns to a closed position, in a controlled manner.

  2. Devices such as spring hinges, which do not exert a checking control during door closing, are outside the scope of this standard.

  3. Door closing devices (door closers) manufactured in accordance with this standard are recommended for use wherever there is a requirement for reliable closing control of a door.

  4. Door closers for use on fire/smoke doors need additional attributes in order to contribute actively to meeting the essential safety requirements in case of fire, either independently or as part of a complete door assembly.

These additional requirements for door closers for use on a fire/smoke door assembly are specified in normative Annex A.

  1. Door closers incorporating electrically powered hold-open mechanisms, for use on fire/smoke door assemblies, are covered by EN 1155.

  2. Door closers incorporating door coordinator devices (with or without electrically powered hold-open devices) are covered by EN 1158.
