Assistance with expert planning

Planning assistance for door systems

Maciej Lulko für GEZE GmbH

Depending on the installation context, doors have to satisfy multiple guidelines for fire safety, burglary, thermal insulation, sound proofing and accessibility. The resulting requirements often prove to be highly complex. In larger construction projects, doors are recorded in doors lists that contain specifications for each door.

The participation of diverse building trades in the planning and construction process or the lack of an overall review of the door technology can hamper the implementation of highly complex door systems. GEZE provides consultation with door planning and assists you with selecting components.

Guidelines and requirements for accessibility planning

Martin Jakob für GEZE GmbH

Self-determination is particularly important for people with disabilities and for the elderly. They want to experience their surroundings independently and without restrictions. Fortunately, society has started to pay much more attention to the topic of ‘accessibility’. While originally associated with bodily limitations, old age and illness, the focus these day is much more on the true benefits of accessibility, namely independence, comfort and safety. Barrier-free building has already been incorporated in numerous standards and regulations.

As with overall construction legislation in Germany, the legal basis for barrier-free building is essentially left to the individual federal states. This makes planning highly complex. GEZE is familiar with the associated norms and guidelines and is happy to assist you in the planning phase.
