GEZE at Light + Building 2016 in Frankfurt

For building and spatial automation, GEZE will be presenting innovative solutions that deliver overall improvements to living and working in intelligent buildings at Frankfurt Exhibition Centre (Messe Frankfurt) from 13 to 18 March. They make buildings more comfortable, increase security, save energy and create new visual possibilities.

Smart Buildings: Networked solutions are defining the future

Automated and networked building functions with GEZE solutions offer users, building operators, investors, architects and specialist planners as well as the electrical sector (trade, industry and retail) beneficial advantages. The highlights of the trade fair presentation are the new interface solutions for the integration of GEZE products in standardised global open communication protocols for home and building systems technology (KNX and BACnet).

In window technology, the IQ box KNX interface module enables the visualisation, command and control of the intelligent window drives from the IQ windowdrive series in a building equipped with the KNX bus system. It even enables direct integration of the drives into the KNX bus system to control natural ventilation. For maximum efficiency and security in building operations, the new module in the KNX bus also makes additional information available to the window functions.

The IO 420 interface module is the key to ‘Smart Buildings’ – all the system components can be networked with each other via the BACnet communication protocol. This means that GEZE door systems, door technology such as e.g. hold-open systems, ventilation technology, smoke and heat extraction systems (RWA) and safety systems (e.g. emergency exit controls) can be integrated into the building management system via the open standard.

Electric strikes for comfort, security and design

GEZE will be demonstrating its expertise and comprehensive range of electric strike systems with the extended product programme from GEZE's subsidiary IST Systems.

The particular strengths of the new A4000 vector electric strikes include almost silent door opening as well as secure release of the lock latch even when under high preload – and without the need for additional electronics. The typically small IST dimensions guarantee new design possibilities and a high level of planning security – benefits that excite the electrical trade as much as they do door manufacturers and installation engineers, architects and professional planners.

Light+Building takes place from 13 to 18 March 2018 at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre (Messe Frankfurt).
