Geze UK educates Exeter

The UK’s leading manufacturer of door and window control technology, GEZE UK, is once again proving it’s a degree above the rest as several of its elegant door closers are installed at Exeter University.

Select Architectural Ironmongery specified more than twenty of GEZE UK’s TS 3000 B surface mounted closers and a GEZE Boxer, an integrated cam action door closer, during the refurbishment of the university’s 1950’s Senate Chamber.

Exeter University needed to create a high-end meeting room facility with a contemporary and smart interior, which offered an appropriate space for the council of one the UK’s leading academic institutions for state occasions. Select Architectural Ironmongery chose the Boxer as it could be integrated into the refurbished doors, blending seamlessly into the sleek design of the boardroom. Offering style as well as function, the doors can be manually opened with low friction and adjustable speed as well as benefiting from a built in hydraulic back check.

GEZE’s surface mounted cam-action door closer, the TS 3000 B, was selected for doors throughout Senate House, where high footfall areas made ease of opening a necessity. Designed to assist with the need to satisfy the requirements of the Equality Act, and to bridge the gap between the stringent fire door regulations and Approved Document M of the Building Regulations, the TS3000B offers adjustable latching action, closing speed and back check. 

The prestigious refurbished doors at the entrance to the chamber also needed to be both accessible and safe, so GEZE’s TS 550 double action closers were specified to meet the high footfall demand. The installation also included TS550 floor springs, which fitted within the existing floor cut outs, minimising the impact of the installation. Floor spring covers were utilised to conceal the unit and to provide a sleek finish.

Ian Butland from Select Architectural Ironmongery commented: “Everything about this project had to be considered from an aesthetic viewpoint, but when you’re having to look for products that need to perform to high safety standards that isn’t always easy. GEZE UK’s range was the obvious choice for the job, offering outstanding quality and functionality without compromising on style or design.”

“This is exactly the sort of project where GEZE’s products can excel. Select Architectural Ironmongery’s confidence in selecting our closers for this prestigious project is a testament to how our products are valued within the industry,” added GEZE UK’s sales director Andy Howland.
