Dorma TS68 Overhead Door Closer Silver
Never fitted anything like this before but using the template provided made it very easy. Once adjusted (which is very easy) it closes the door almost soundlessly.
Too early to comment on reliability but I don't expect any problems.

Does the job
I have now fitted two of these and they do what they are supposed to. It features adjustment to rate of closure to make sure that door closes properly without slamming.

Good closer so far
This is first door closer purchased so can't compare against others. However the instructions took a while to understand (a few words go a long way).
If you're fitting it to the opposite side to way the door opens towards (if the door opens outwards and the closer is on the inside) you can only have it set to EN2. This is what the additional bracket is for (the one in the picture).
You also cant use the template, you have to use the measurements from the other sheet.
If you mount the closer on the same side as the direction the door opens towards then the template is moved for either EN 2+3 or EN4 (EN4 is further from the door hinges). Then for EN 2 the bracket attached to the end of the strut is turned around the opposite way to EN 3 or 4.
Easy isn't it?
The fact this is my first closer purchase and that it was fitted to a door with no latch means I can't really compare with others or comment on adjustments. - It shut the door ok though and was easy to open the door with it fitted.

Great product does everything it's meant too.but only lasts two years before needing replacing.
Mechanism jams but for Â£21 I cant be bothered to mark out and fit a different one
