Universal Design or barrier-free access convenience for all, high functional and design diversity as well as outstanding aesthetics: the new GEZE Powerturn swing door drive offers genuine added value. It even opens large and heavy single and double-leaf doors easily and safely. Manual opening, which is effortless for any user at any time, is also made possible by the unique Smart swing function. As a flexible component, the Powerturn can be integrated into a wide range of different door systems. Powerturn celebrated its premiere at the BAU trade fair 2015 and was awarded there twice. It received the innovation prize "Plus X Award" and the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) sustainability certificate, a globally recognised eco-label.

Prime example for creative freedom and Universal Design
The fully automatic Powerturn swing door drive is the best solution for all installation situations and whatever the mode of operation in prestigious entrances or high value internal doors. The new drive enables customised, multi-function door solutions to be implemented. With its discreet, award-winning design and an overall height of only 7 cm, it blends in with any door design and architecture.

Powerturn also opens very large and heavy doors with leaf weights of up to 300 kg almost noiselessly. Even in case of wind or suction, it opens and closes doors reliably and safely. It satisfies all the established standards and safety standards and is also approved for heavy fire protection doors of up to 1,600 mm width. The Powerturn F/R version combines innovation and design - the smoke control unit is invisibly integrated into the covering hood.

Quality of life thanks to accessibility
Powerturn makes it easier for children and handicapped persons to pass through doors. It fulfils all the comfort and safety requirements - regardless of whether your hands are full of shopping bags or you have a child on your arm. Even large, heavy and wide doors can be effortlessly opened using the new GEZE swing door drive in every access situation - automatically or manually. This is made possible by the Smart swing function. It's a great example of Universal Design and fulfils the requirements relating to inclusion - the right of people with disabilities to be able to go wherever they want and live their lives to the full - just like anyone else.

Flexible and fit for the future
As a flexible, future-proof system component, Powerturn facilitates the implementation of different door scenarios - whether in combination with motor locks, door control units such as GEZE TZ 320 for controlling and monitoring of closing and opening processes in doors on escape and rescue routes, as fresh air opening in smoke and heat extraction systems, for natural ventilation or as part of the GEZE security interlocking door system. Apart from this, the Powerturn can also be integrated into building automation systems. Its reliability is MPA checked for 500,000 cycles. As a provider of complete solutions, GEZE creates comprehensive tailor-made systems and special solutions. In the planning and tendering phase of a project, consulting and support are naturally provided for all trades.

The installation is easy and flexible: Six different types of installation can be carried out using a single version of the Powerturn: Transom installation or door leaf installation with link arm or roller guide rail - on the hinge side or the opposite hinge side. The clever GEZE installation system simplifies the installation process.

The Powerturn in the currently most famous reference object for accessibility
Powerturn is already being used in one of the world's prime exemplary buildings in which Universal Design and maximum accessibility were implemented. The "Handicap Organisationernes Hus" of the "Dansk Handicap organisation" in Høje-Taastrup in Copenhagen, the new headquarters of the umbrella organisation of 32 associations for handicapped persons in Denmark, is an excellent example of the design of buildings, in which people can move and work freely - irrespective of their disability. The basic idea behind the architecture of the four-storey, star-shaped building of 12,600 square meters is the implementation of easy accessibility of 310 workplaces in the building and the easiest use of all the equipment for everyone without external help.
