Perlan 140 SoftStop
Watch the animated demo of the new Perlan 140 SoftStop with special hidden damping system that makes uncontrolled impact against doorframes and fittings a thing of the past.
Meeting contemporary demands for safety and style, the Perlan 140 SoftStop is hidden in a running track that is just 40mm in height, ideal for office and residential applications.
However hard the door is closed, the impact is controlled automatically as the mechanism gently brakes the moving door and then softly slides the door into Quiet, sturdy and highly durable, the Perlan 140 SoftStop is suitable for ceiling or wall mounting and can be used for single or multi-leaf sliding doors.
Certified according to DIN EN 1527:1998, the door gear can support wooden, plastic, metal and glass doors weighing up to 80kg in standard and special sizes, utilising a three pendulum suspension system for optimal load distribution.
GEZE technical director Simon Bowden said: ’I’m certain the Perlan 140 SoftStop will have a strong and immediate impact on the market’.
’The SoftStop technology means an end to trapped fingers and damaged sliding doors and frames caused by uncontrolled manual sliding doors, so it’s ideal in areas of high footfall, where the young, elderly and the public are using them’.
’Its concealed mechanism means it’s minimalist enough for elegant apartments and corporate offices’.

GEZE UK, together with glazing specialist FA Firman, has designed a set of automatic sliding doors inside a set of larger manual swing doors for visual arts organisation, firstsite, in Colchester. The new entrance features GEZE UK’s Slimdrive SL operators and has been designed to minimise heat loss and allow large pieces of art to be taken in and out of the building. The Slimdrive SL operator is only 7cm high and forms part of GEZE’s Slimdrive range.
The new GEZE UK training seminar, a RIBA Approved CPD, explains how EN 16005 addresses potential hazards around power operated doorsets and also how it differs from the superseded BS 7036.
