DORMA TS 83 Door Closer

Door closer with scissor arm and "thinking" backcheck

Decades of experience have gone into the development of the DORMA TS 83 door closer. The result is user convenience coupled with outstanding versatility. It can be adjusted to suit almost all types of door. The DORMA TS 83 can even be supplied with additional anti-corrosion protection for exposed applications or aggressive conditions.


Certified manufacture to ISO 9001.


Thanks to an innovative design concept, the resistance developed by this backcheck system as the door is opened beyond approx. 70° is directly proportional to door acceleration. It is almost imperceptible when the door is opened slowly.

However, if the door is opened hastily, the back­check responds in equal measure. And if the door should be flung open at speed – whether deliberately, thoughtlessly, accidentally or as a result of a gust of wind – the backcheck reacts at full strength, protecting the wall and door from damage.
