GEZE Perlan & Rollan glass clamping plates

June 30, 2014 by · Comments Off on GEZE Perlan & Rollan glass clamping plates 

GEZE perlan glass clamp
Focus on the 30mm glass clamping plates which are used to attach the toughened glass to the top hung sliding door gear for both the GEZE Perlan and the Rollan sliding door gear for frameless glass. The glass does not need to be drilled for the clamps. The clamps are suitable for glass of 8mm, 10mm or 12mm thickness and are supplied with short covers to hide the clamp fastenings. The German name for these is nice and easy to transplate:  Glasklemmplatte! Full length clamp covers are also available in two lengths, 950mm and 1450mm. The cover attaches to the 30mm glass clamping plates and provide an asthetically pleasing look across the top of the door with the minimum of effort. When the end of the covers are more than 200mm from the clamps then a set of End Clamps are required to ensure the stability of the covers at either end of the glass.

A comparison of the GEZE roller carriages: Rollan 40, Rollan 80 & Perlan 140 sliding door gear

roller-comparison

When specifying sliding door gear for timber doors, one always needs to know the weight of the doors.  Illustrated in the photo above can be seen the difference in the axle construction between the 3 main GEZE systems; the Rollan 40, the Rollan 80 and the Perlan 140.  The weight limit per door in kgs is the 40, 80 and 140 of the systems’ names.  The Rollans both share the same aluminium track profile, which comes in a mill finish (i.e. not finished).  The Perlan 140 has its own chunkier and more heavy duty track, which is finished in an attractive satin anodised aluminium.  Double doors can be accommodated on the same track by simply buying an extra door pack.

Wall mounted electromagnetic door hold open devices are used for holding open fire doors which have mechanical door closers fitted. They must be connected to a smoke detection system or fire alarm panel which, in the case of fire, interrupts the clamping power supply.  Thus the door is released and is closed by the door closer.  Suitable for use with power size 3-6 door closers, suitable for use on timber doors of any width up to 1450mm, 24v lower power unit, integrated test button on the unit, to be used with counter plate C or counter plate E for extreme angles.

How to change the power setting on a GEZE TS1500 door closer

January 9, 2014 by · Comments Off on How to change the power setting on a GEZE TS1500 door closer 

Geze TS1500 shoe position

There are two power settings and changing them is all about the position of the arm.  The part of the arm which fixes to the frame (in figure 1, standard, fitting) is called the shoe.  If the “toe” of the shoe is pointing towards the hinge side of the frame, the power is set on power 3 to EN1154 (~WEAK), if the “toe” is pointing away from the hinge side of the frame, power is set on power 4 to EN1154 (~STRONG).  To change the power setting, simply dismantle the arm using the black hexagon headed bolt, and remove the shoe end of the arm, replacing it turned 180º – see pictures A & B above.  Source: Geze’s fitting pdf, (page 2, paragraph 2) see here.

Using the GEZE Rollan sliding door gear within an opening instead of a pocket door kit, such as the Hideaway or iMpero (building a homemade ‘pocket’ of your own design). Is there a reason why this wouldn’t work?

October 22, 2013 by · Comments Off on Using the GEZE Rollan sliding door gear within an opening instead of a pocket door kit, such as the Hideaway or iMpero (building a homemade ‘pocket’ of your own design). Is there a reason why this wouldn’t work? 

rollan
The GEZE Rollan sliding door gear can be used inside your own stud work to form a pocket door system – quite a lot of people do this in our experience.  The only disadvantage might be that in order to get a nice rigid wall structure you would have to use some strengthening material in the pocket, and this would give you a thicker finished wall.  It is especially appropriate to consider using sliding door track systems instead of pocket door kits when you already have a rigid block or brick wall forming one side of the pocket, then side mounting the track with the brackets which come in our GEZE Rollan & Perlan kits.

Under the bonnet of a TS3000V – how to adjust the power, closing speed and latching action.

adjust-ts3000v-door-closer

We looked under the hood (or slide plate to give it the correct name) of a GEZE TS3000V door closer to photograph the fitting holes and adjustment screws, here’s what you’ll find there.  Its very similar to the TS2000NVBC  but they are not interchangeable with each others arms & guide rails because the spindles are different, they’re hexagon on the TS3000, but splined on the TS2000.

Introducing the SF-T telescopic sliding door kit – now in stock!

sf-t telescopic sliding door kit

Suitable for 25mm to 44mm thick timber doors, this simple accessory kit allows two timber doors to be used in a telescopic method. The doors are arranged with one door in front of the other.  It can be used in conjunction with most standard top hung timber sliding door kits (such as the GEZE Rollan and Perlan, and similar models of other makes; Coburn, Henderson, Brio, Saheco, Koblenz, etc). When the door furthest from the wall in the closed position is pulled open it moves adjacent to the other door. When the doors are aligned both doors then slide together adjacent to the wall. When the doors are to be closed the first door is pulled out until the telescopic brackets engage then it picks up the second door and both doors move until their finishing position. The threshold is kept clear by having a standard floor mounted floor guide next to the wall for door 2 whilst door 1 is guided by a floor guide mounted onto door 2.
