At GEZE, you will find the right swing door drive for your automatic door

Swing door drives are the good little spirits of automatic swing door systems. They unobtrusively ensure that doors open and close smoothly. Thanks to them, thereʼs no need to press a handle or switch when entering a building – and, thanks to activation devices and sensors, the doors open all by themselves the moment they detect us. An invaluable benefit in terms of convenience, accessibility and hygiene. The range of swing door drives is just as diverse as the range of applications for automatic doors. We provide you with an overview of our automatic swing door drives. Of course, you can also contact us personally at any time so that we can work together to find the right solution for you.

Especially in public building projects, accessibility is particularly important in the building code. Because of this, automatic doors are predominantly used in this area. Also with regard to fire protection regulations automatic swing doors impress with their characteristic features. Because in the event of a fire, for instance, automatic doors close automatically or, thanks to sensory protection, also recognise obstacles in the door. When selecting the right swing door drive, the type of swing door, the installation situation and the resulting demands are decisive. The size, weight and material of the door must be taken into account. Here, for instance, frameless all-glass doors demand different sliding panels than heavy single-action doors made of steel. The location of your automatic door also plays a major role: in a shopping centre, for example, exiting the building only may be called for after a certain time of the day, making it impossible to enter from the outside. Does the swing door drive design be adapted to the ambience and be as invisible as possible, for example at the entrance to a hotelʼs foyer? Or does the automatic swing door have to satisfy special safety aspects, such as when used at an airport? For instance in a hospital, hygiene aspects can also demand the use of special swing door drives.
