GEZE at the BAU Fair 2019 from 14th to 19th of January 2019. The fair will take place in Munich exhibition Center and GEZE will be in Hall B1, Booth 538-539. At BAU 2019, GEZE will be displaying systems and solutions which support customers and partners in all stages of the building life cycle. From building planning to inspirational ‘professional solutions’ to specific international solutions and service; all on demand, from a single source and from A to Z. BAU visitors can also look forward to the ‘look and feel’ of the GEZE booth, which invites visitors to come and chat, and where there are plenty of new things to discover.
“GEZE smart building solutions aim to provide automated and networked building infrastructure solutions to make modern buildings more comfortable, secure and ultimately reduce energy consumption. With a lot of research going into developing this, we are confident that GEZE’s smart solutions for doors and window automation and a future of facades will be well received in the region.” Said Charles Constantin, Managing Director of GEZE Middle East.
Automatic solutions which communicate openly and intelligently
GEZE solutions will also be appearing at BAU 2019 – in keeping with the main topics of the fair – against the backdrop of intelligently networked systems. These communicate on the basis of the BACnet and KNX open communication protocols. The GEZE Cockpit building automation system, in combination with interface modules and automatic products, will be one of the highlights at the booth yet again. It is constantly being developed, and the latest software version has a new, more intuitive user interface and additional features – alarm settings, for instance. Another highlight is a new development for the reliable ECdrive sliding door solution. The combination of a drive and a newly developed, thermally separated profile offers improved running character and easier installation. Moreover, a reduced height for the drive cover and the fine-framed profile ensure that the design is discreet and attractive. GEZE will also be presenting a new generation of automatic motor locks with integrated motor lock control unit.
Safe, convenient, inspirational: new developments in door and window technology
In window technology, a new interface module enables automatic windows to be protected intelligently with sensors. It can be combined with all drives from the GEZE IQ windowdrive series. A new compact control panel for particularly quick and easy installation will also be seen at the GEZE booth.
There will also be new developments from the door technology sector at BAU: a new smoke switch control unit with a vertically adjustable telescopic function ensures that smoke inlets can be positioned easily in difficult lintel situations. The new TS 5000 SoftClose overhead door closer will also be on display: depending on requirements, a latching action can be set, or the door leaf can be slowed down to the last opening degree. However, the door will safely be pulled shut with the same amount of power – even in difficult environmental conditions.
The hold-open system program with the new FA GC 170 wireless extension is even more discreet, and safer: as a result, cable connections can now be replaced by wireless – a welcome solution, even for retrofitting. Double winner: the GEZE wireless extension was honoured at the ICONIC AWARDS 2018: Innovative Architecture and the German Design Award 2019. Furthermore, a new automatic locking concept for manual sliding wall systems (MSW) makes operation even safer and easier – for example, in high-end retail construction.
A further highlight is the presentation of the new version of the GEZE ActiveStop door damper fitted on the door frame – including a live installation at the GEZE booth. The system ensures the controlled, damped opening and closing of room doors and, as a result, creates an entirely new convenience. This version fitted on the frame can simply be adhered into position, and then removed again.
International and service solutions: solutions in tune with customers’ wishes
As an internationally operating company with production sites in Germany, Serbia, China and the Iberian Peninsula, GEZE offers country-specific solutions. The GEZE Powerturn swing door system is also available as an underfloor operator, as a version specially developed for the British market. The entire door automation is accommodated virtually invisibly in the floor and in the wall. Doors with a weight of up to 125 kg and a width of up to 1250 mm can be moved. The underfloor version is especially suitable for environments with particularly high aesthetic aspirations, or for use with glass doors.
An electric strike, specially developed to meet the demands of the Scandinavian market, is also a part of the exhibition, same as are products manufactured at the GEZE production site in China for the Asian market: items on display include solutions from the fields of smoke and heat extraction (RWA), floor springs, and sliding door drives.
Presentation of the extensive services provided by GEZE, from planning to after-sales services, will round off the BAU 2019 trade fair. From the early planning stages with GEZE BIM objects, to individual service packages and training sessions, to maintenance services, GEZE networks all of the customers and partners involved in the project throughout the entire building life cycle with know-how.
