The free swing door closer
for all installation situations

Radical simplification of product variants.

This means: lower storage costs and smooth processes on the construction site. Because the ECO FTS III covers all four assembly positions:

  • Door leaf and head mounting, each on hinge and opposite hinge side
  • DIN left and DIN right


When accessibility with a high level of operating convenience is required: The FTS III makes it possible to open and close doors with little effort.


If a smoke protection or smoke-tight door with self-closing according to EN 1154 is specified: Our newly developed R III slide rail with integrated smoke detector turns the free swing door closer into the ECO FTS-R III.

  • 4 installation types, one closing body
    Door leaf and frame installation each on hinge and opposite hinge side, DIN left = DIN right
  • Opening angle
    up to 180°
  • Full cover
    Optional full cover made of stainless steel (V2A) for FTS body and guide rail
  • Activation of the free swing  function
    already from 1° opening angle
  • Continuous design
    suitable for the ECO Newton door closer generation
  • Expandable for double-leaf systems
All product details

Standard installation

The ECO FTS III and the ECO FTS-R III with integrated smoke detector can be installed in standard installation in DIN-L and DIN-R as well as on the hinge and opposite hinge side. Only one variant is needed at a time. This saves storage capacity and prevents incorrect orders.

New construction or renovation - one solution

The cable connections of the free swing door closer can be done internally or surface installed.

Everything upside down?
No problem!

For frame installation, ECO Schulte has developed a variant consisting of the ECO FTS III free swing door closer and the ECO RSZ III smoke control unit, installed on a specially adapted mounting plate for frame installation. The height-adjustable slide rail ECO GS-HF is installed on the door leaf.

All cable connections are concealed here, there is no visible transition to the door leaf.

Applications with two door leaves

For double-leaf doors, the ECO FTS III can be combined with the ECO SR III and ECO SR-R III slide rails.
The ECO FTS III slide rail door closer with free swing function operates the active leaf. Our TS-61 or TS-62 door closers are suitable for the inactive leaf.

Awarded for form and function

The FTS III was awarded the ICONIC AWARD: Innovative Interior 2023. The award honours relevant contemporary developments as well as special design achievements. Both apply to the FTS III:

In addition to its functional qualities for more accessibility and safety, the FTS III convinces with its simple design in a unified cut.

As part of ECO Schulte's system technology for doors, the FTS III fits perfectly, both aesthetically and technically, into any door planning for nursing homes, kindergartens, hospitals - wherever doors need to function with little effort and a high level of safety.

As the FTS-R III, the free swing door closer also has a smoke detector function: Safety in all sensitive living and working areas.
