Fire protection doors which must close safely in an emergency can also be used for barrier-free access. Hold-open systems hold them open electrically until they are either closed manually or – in the event of a fire – closed by activating the smoke switch. GEZE offers complete hold-open systems, such as the systems in the TS 5000 door closer range in combination with the GEZE R-guide rail with integrated lintel-mounted smoke detector. With additional ceiling and lintel-mounted detectors GEZE makes hold-open systems for fire and smoke protection doors that meet German general design certification (ABG) standards.
The new FA GC 170 wireless extension kit
In order to offer greater safety and convenience GEZE has made its range of hold-open systems even more appealing with a special extension solution. Traditional wired connections can now be replaced with wireless ones. The wireless components of the new GEZE FA GC 170 wireless extension kit can be easily connected to existing systems via a wireless module. FA GC 170 is a much-welcomed retrofitting solution that enables GEZE hold-open systems, ceiling-mounted smoke detectors and manual trigger switches to be connected wirelessly to the wireless module on the lintel-mounted detector.
No structural modifications – optimum retrofitting
Installing the FA GC 170 wireless extension kit requires no additional cables to be hooked up to ceiling-mounted detector and manual trigger switch: This is a real advantage where structural modifications are unwanted or impossible, e.g. in listed buildings. What’s more, the system allows you to easily retrofit ceiling-mounted detectors on existing hold-open systems. The new solution guarantees secure, preventive fire protection and meets all of the relevant requirements.
Quick and easy connection – low maintenance
All of the wireless extension kit components are connected via a DIP switch. The wireless module at the heart of the wireless system enables wireless communication between the virtually invisible lintel-mounted smoke detector, integrated into the guide rail, and the various wireless devices, e.g. the wireless ceiling-mounted smoke detector and wireless ceiling-mounted temperature detector as well as the wireless module to the manual trigger switch. Flexible system configuration allows you to connect up to six wireless devices, so even ceilings affected by certain structural conditions can be fitted. The FA GC 170 wireless extension kit can be used with all GEZE hold-open systems and is tested according to DIN EN 54-25. The long battery life of five years reduces its maintenance costs.
Silent, powerful and accessible in every environment
The new GEZE TS 5000 SoftClose overhead door closer:
Reliable, safe and silent closing of doors even in environmental conditions that do not so obviously lend themselves to this level of comfort, like the generally narrow interlocking door system areas of underground car park entrances, staircases or wind or heavy suction – these are the advantages of the new TS 5000 SoftClose door closer. Door slamming is prevented by damping the door shortly before the closing position.
The real “strength” of the TS 5000 SoftClose is its exceptionally high end closing force. The closing speed can be set individually within an opening angle of between 0 - 15°. Thanks to its optimised closing process, doors are pulled into the lock securely with constant force. The TS 5000 SoftClose door closer is the perfect solution for clients desiring or needing their doors to close quietly, gently and securely, e.g. in hospitals, hotels and apartment buildings. It fulfils DIN 18040 demands for barrier-free construction up to a leaf width of 1,100 millimetres.
The new door closer can replace existing versions of the TS 5000. It is compatible with all GEZE guide rails. The TS 5000 SoftClose can be used with single and double leaf doors and a range of door systems and is flexible in terms of its installation.
