Powerturn from GEZE makes access for all a breeze

Even the largest of doors can be opened with ease providing access to all thanks to the launch of the new Powerturn drive by GEZE UK.

Powerturn is an automatic swing door drive that can be used manually thanks to GEZE’s new Smart swing function so that even children and people with restricted mobility can easily open large or heavy doors.

Designed with the end user in mind, Powerturn provides architects with a truly flexible design and accessibility solution. It is ideal for use on internal and external doors and is suitable for single or double leaf doors. At just 7cm high, the drive can be mounted on the door or transom and be used to open large or heavy doors, with a leaf weight of up to 600kg (300kg on fire doors) or leaf width up to 1600mm. It can be integrated with other door control systems including heat and smoke ventilation systems or complex security systems with interlocking doors.

The Smart swing function is key to its power. This innovative new operation pre-loads the spring during the first cycle to reduce the energy required during normal operation, in the event of a fire the spring releases closing the door safely. Powerturn also includes an adjustable push and go function and ensures barrier free access, enabling compliance to the Equality Act and BS 8300.

Andy Howland, sales director of GEZE UK said:

“Powerturn can be integrated flexibly in to a wide range of different systems giving the architect the freedom to design whilst still meeting all safety and accessibility requirements.

“This versatile operator provides full functionality from low energy operation to fully automatic opening and closing of large or heavy doors, which can assist in locations encountering adverse conditions.”
