Really catchy: KranHaus (house of cranes) is the name of the new sales and training centre of the crane manufacturer ABUS at the company's headquarters in Gummersbach.

The four-storey open-gallery building was inaugurated last year. With system elements from its door, window and safety technology range, GEZE was able to realise several object-specific solutions in this building.

In their unique way, they fulfil the demanding requirements in terms of usage, comfort and safety within this smart building complex.

Completely networked with BACnet

GEZE has created an accessible, safe and convenient passage to the large entrance area of the KranHalle showroom by installing automatic sliding door systems in escape route versions.

They fit discreetly in the external façade, and support the transparent design of the vestibule, which also serves as an interlocking door system for persons.

In the traditionally slim GEZE 7 cm look, the efficient SL NT drives move the almost three metre-high sliding door leaves, creating an opening width of almost four metres.

Preventive fire protection is guaranteed by the networked RWA exhaust air openings along the large-scale roof of the entire building complex.

A fast and cost-effective 2-wire BUS solution on CAN basis was created with the GEZE BUS system. Depending on the size, location and ventilation needs of the individual skylight, the optimum RWA spindle drive for every skylight was chosen from the GEZE window technology range.

All RWA drives in the skylights – whether for the RWA case or for controlled ventilation – are supplied, coordinated and monitored by MBZ 300 RWA control units in different performance classes.

Another advantage of networked RWA exhaust air openings is the fact that, with the help of a BUS coupler, fire detection and individual control of the RWA systems can be managed via the fire detector central unit.

 

Crane technology experienced – 'hitch-hiking' to a height of ten metres

Customised construction components from the Customer Solutions division demonstrate how GEZE can meet specific needs on a large scale: the highlight of the four-storey open crane hall is the accessible double girder overhead travelling crane.

Visitors can take a ride at a height of ten metres, and so 'experience' the crane. To access the crane girder, GEZE has created a double-action glass door embedded in the safety balustrade’s glass design, which opens in both directions.

The template for this was the Pendulo all-glass partition system with an invisible door closer integrated in the design profile.

For maximum safety, the double-action door has been equipped with an IQ lock EL motor lock, and is always locked.

In accordance with the principle of modern machinery protection or platform screen doors, it unlocks to allow access only when halted at the precise fixing point – only then does the crane girder emit a signal via the programme controller to release the lock.

Prior to 'departure' of the crane girder, the glass door closes just as precisely, and self-locks via the IQ lock EL.
