The intelligent system ensures controlled, dampened opening and closing of swing doors. They are stopped gently, closed silently or kept open with ease. With GEZE ActiveStop, it's easier than ever to enter rooms. Walls and objects around the door, and the door itself, are protected. The door damper can be integrated unobtrusively in the door leaf. It can even be fitted to doors with glass panels.
Gentle stopping – keeping open with ease – silent closing
These three elementary door damper functions marry convenience, security and a discreet door appearance. If a door is opened with full swing, GEZE ActiveStop halts the door in good time. No door stoppers are needed on the door or the wall. After slowing down gently, the system opens the door independently and safely as far as the stopping position, which can be set individually between 60 to 140 degrees. This means the door is particularly easy to walk through – a welcome benefit, especially if your hands are full. Furthermore, unattractive traces or damage to walls or furniture are prevented. This applies equally to the door itself, for example if it draws a lot during ventilation and the door threatens to slam shut in uncontrollably. In this case, GEZE ActiveStop intervenes and ensures it is kept open safely.
GEZE ActiveStop gently slows down doors in exactly the same way if they are closing quickly, and shuts them slowly and noiselessly. From around 25 degrees, the door damper gently and securely pulls the door in. Slamming doors are a thus a thing of the past. Door leaves and frames are protected, and the risk of injury from becoming trapped is minimised. Doors 'run freely' at between 25 and 60 degrees. The door damper reliably catches them from 25 or from 60 degrees.
Installation? It couldn't be easier
GEZE ActiveStop can be integrated into room doors with a leaf weight of up to 45 kilograms. Compact in size and measuring just 28 millimetres wide, the door damper can be integrated virtually invisibly into the door leaf. It is easy to install it manually in the door leaf with minor milling. End-users receive a complete door system and only have to set the desired back check and opening angle. The individually adjustable opening angle, and damping level that can be set via a valve, ensure the system can be adapted to any door situation. Because the door remains closed on its own, no lock latch is necessary.
Innovative double award-winning design
GEZE ActiveStop has received two awards for outstanding design. The door damper is the winner of the German Design Award 2016. The international prize is awarded by the German Design Council (Rat für Formgebung), and organiser of one of the world's best-recognised design competitions. GEZE ActiveStop also achieved Silver in the international design prize Focus Open 2015. The panel of the Design Center Baden-Württemberg recognised the new GEZE door damping as an innovative solution with exceptional design quality and awarded it the first prize in the 'Living' category.
