Innovators of window and door systems, Geze, will be highlighting a range of new technologies for smart building projects at a leading exhibition next month.
The company will showcase their building automation systems for ‘smart’ technology and new interface modules that utilises BACnet and KNX – a global communication standard in home and building system technology.
“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,” say Charles Constantin, managing director of GEZE Middle East, who will exhibit at the Windows, Doors & Facades Event 2017 when it takes place in Dubai.
Professional Solutions: Smart, secure and efficient control of building technology
With the GEZE Cockpit, automated system components from the fields of door, window and safety technology from different manufacturers can be networked, monitored centrally and controlled – even via a smartphone or tablet.
Via the IO 420 interface module, GEZE products can be integrated into network solutions with BACnet, and with each other via BACnet MS/TP.
Another product to be highlighted is a multifunctional, centrally-controlled swing door system with an automated and a manual door leaf. With the ‘robust’, award-winning Powerturn drive and tried-and-trusted GEZE door closer technology, the door system combines accessible door control, emergency exit protection, fire protection, increased burglar resistance, complete protection when passing the door and remote monitoring. The universal drive design across both door leaves is a visual highlight.
For controlled, natural ventilation, GEZE will also be presenting facade windows with IQ window drives. Via the IQ box KNX interface module, windows can be connected as direct bus users in a KNX building system and be monitored and managed ‘smartly’.
Whether in public buildings, office buildings or schools – energy-efficient ventilation, a healthy indoor climate and monitoring the window statuses are central demands for large projects.
Networked solutions from GEZE fulfil them: a 'climate active' facade is created as the result of the intelligent interplay between window drives and sensors, which record external environmental influences and the indoor climate.
Automatic windows are an ideal solution for natural night-time back cooling. The windows can be monitored and operated intelligently via IQ box KNX interface module, integrated into the KNX communication standard. The module has won the Silver PROTECTOR Award.
Living Solutions: New solutions for the Smart Home
Thanks to the GEZE front door pack, small buildings or single- and multi-family homes become ‘smart’. Completely in accordance with the individual wishes, the modular plug & play complete system turns a simple front door into an automated access solution that can be integrated into an existing Smart Home system.
The GEZE ActiveStop door damper integrated into the door provides greater convenience and a completely new ‘door experience’. GEZE will also be presenting an additional variant that can be fitted to the door frame as optimum retrofit option.
Service Solutions: GEZE BIM objects – five elements for complete door planning
GEZE focuses on the integrated support of the building technology in a project and supports architects, planners and installation engineers at every stage of a project.
The firm relies heavily upon Building Information Modeling (BIM) – a method for the optimised planning and design of buildings in a virtual building model. Their BIM objects are highly efficient solutions for the uniform and comprehensive layout of doors in all service phases. These help architects, planners and specialists can design doors together.
Visitors at the show will also be able to discover how to simply and securely design customised door solutions using just five multi-functional doors.
The second edition of WDF will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 25-27 September.
