Heating, lighting, ventilation, and climate control systems: all of them are great and, of course, useful. But smart buildings are really only truly ‘smart’ when the doors and windows are also automated, and integrated in a building system. At the Fensterbau Frontale trade show from 21 to 24 March 2018, GEZE will present new and innovative solutions from the fields of door, window and safety technology as well as building automation at Nuremberg Exhibition Centre (NürnbergMesse) in Hall 2, Stand 2-424.

Professional Solutions: Intelligent solutions for doors and windows

Our motto for Fensterbau 2018

One of the highlights on show at the trade fair will be the GEZE Cockpit: the new BACnet building automation system that makes buildings smart by now also allowing automated doors and windows to be integrated into a single building management system. Thanks to interdisciplinary networking in Smart Buildings, GEZE Cockpit offers new options for convenient, secure, and energy-saving building operation. The system's unique advantages are the central visualisation, operation and monitoring of automated GEZE products for door, window and safety technology. GEZE Cockpit can be used as an independent system, or integrated into a higher-ranking building management system to improve the comfort, security and energy efficiency of our work and home environments.

Networked into GEZE Cockpit, and therefore centrally controllable, GEZE presents the F/R-IS/TS variant of the Powerturn swing door drive system, a unique and complete multifunctional solution with an automated and a manual door leaf. Featuring the multi-award-winning 'strong' Powerturn drive, and proven GEZE door closer technology, the door system combines remote operation and monitoring with accessible and secure door comfort, emergency exit protection, fire protection and increased burglar resistance. The drive cover, which extends consistently over both door leaves, creates a perfect look.

GEZE also has new products in door closer technology. A new version with high end closing force ensures the safe closing of doors even when there is limited space or an unfavourable environment, e.g. in the interlocking door system areas of multi-storey car parks. Banging doors are eliminated – even without additional dampers. Hold-open systems from GEZE can be supplemented with a new wireless component. The new solution is ideal for retrofitting ceiling fire detectors.

Façades can do more!

Automated, networked windows create façades that adapt to the climate. For controlled, natural ventilation, GEZE will be presenting façade windows with drives from the IQ windowdrive series. The new generation of Slimchain 230V chain drives is particularly sleek. Installation and commissioning are now even faster and easier. Via the IQ box KNX interface module, windows can be connected as direct bus participants in a KNX building system and be monitored and managed ‘smartly".

Living Solutions: The new GEZE ActiveStop door damper

GEZE will present the new version fitted on the frame of the GEZE ActiveStop door damper. The system ensures controlled, dampened opening and closing of interior doors. This version fitted on the frame can simply be adhered into position, and then removed again. During live installations at the GEZE trade fair booth, visitors can see for themselves how easy the retrofit version is. Like the version integrated into the door, it has already received two awards.

Service Solutions: Work more easily with GEZE service tools

GEZE will present new tools that facilitate the work of installation companies and planners. One of them is WinCalc. The configurator for window technology makes selecting the optimal window drive easy. The new, more advanced WinCalc 2.0 is even intuitive to use. It now also offers advanced calculation options and a shortened calculation method.
