  • ECdrive T2 Thermally separated solution

    ECdrive T2 Thermally separated solution

    As the focus on climate change continues to grow so does the need for net zero buildings and improving our carbon footprint.

    GEZE’s ECdrive T2 automatic sliding doors with a thermally broken profile system – the GCprofile Therm - offer a solution.

    The GCprofile Therm accommodates up to 32 mm glass thickness in either two-pane insulation glass with 2x ESG 6mm, UG value 1.0, or three-pane insulation glass with 3x ESG 4 mm, UG value 0.8.

    The profile system uses slim aluminium frames which reduce visible sightlines by approx. 30 mm – giving designers greater ability to produce a clean design aesthetic while providing greater efficiency.

    With increased performance for leaf weight of up to 140 kg, the GCprofile Therm also boasts improved air tightness (compared to other ISO profile systems), better sound insulation and improved wet weather durability aided by its fit and an optional floor guide with drainage.

    It can be combined with manual and motorised GEZE hook bolt locks, without losing thermal separation and the appearance of the system remains discreet, even with locking.

    A new brochure has been produced to explain the package. This is available by calling the marketing team on 01543 443015 or emailing
