With a lot of research going into developing this, we are confident that GEZE’s smart solutions for doors and window automation and a future of facades will be well received in the region.” Said Charles Constantin, Managing Director of GEZE Middle East.
GEZE closed the gaps in the building automation by introducing GEZE Cockpit, the first building automation system for smart door, window and safety technology at ZAK World of Facades, Kuwait 2018.
Over 500 delegates including architects, designers, consultants, façade builders, contractors, authorities, facades experts, building material brands’ representatives participated at the event in Kuwait on 30th of October 2018.
″The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates Kuwait’s economy to grow by 2.33% in 2018 and 4.06% in 2019 due to increased government spending and an expected rise in oil production. The Kuwait government is delivering on its commitment to growing the national economy, and executing infrastructure projects in-line with the ‘New Kuwait’. New Kuwait development plan proves promising as it is focusing towards increased participation from the private sector in the construction market in order to build a more diversified economy. The government’s New Kuwait 2035 is expected to translate into consistent lucrative new opportunities for the construction sector,“ according to regional construction experts.
The GEZE Cockpit building automation system: smart, secure and efficient control of building technology
With this innovative control unit, automated system components from the fields of door, window and safety technology from GEZE and other manufacturers can be networked, monitored centrally and controlled – even via smartphone or tablet. Via the IO 420 interface module, GEZE products can be integrated into network solutions with BACnet, and be networked with each other via BACnet MS/TP.
A unique complete solution is a multifunctional, centrally controlled swing door system with an automated and a manual door leaf. With the ‘robust’, award-winning Powerturn drive and tried-and-trusted GEZE door closer technology, the door system combines accessible door control, emergency exit protection, fire protection, increased burglar resistance, complete protection when passing the door and remote monitoring. The universal drive design across both door leaves is a visual highlight.
“Innovation has always been an essential component of our DNA in GEZE, and the driving force of the successes and leading position we have accomplished in the MENA and other emerging and developed markets. We will continue to nurture our presence and expand our clients’ portfolio by delivering the best solutions that not only meet the demands of clients, but exceed their expectations as well,” Constantin concluded.
