Making complex window calculations easier with GEZE

  • 30 Apr 2018

GEZE UK‘s new WinCalc 2.0 online specification platform is sure to save professionals time when faced with complex calculations for the design of window systems.

This system, intended for architects, architectural ironmongers, fabricators, M and E (mechanical and electrical) companies and consultants, will enable users to populate design and specification data to identify and plan suitable window configurations.

It can be used to calculate requirements for both manual and electric window drives for natural ventilation, smoke and heat extraction, and SHEVs (smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems).

WinCalc 2.0 can be accessed on computers or tablet devices and has a new user interface with advanced calculation options and a shortened calculation methodology.


It offers a whole host of information which can be downloaded, including calculation reports, bill of materials and diagrams which can be saved in the PDF format.

Main benefits of the platform include its performance, as it minimises the volume of data to be calculated and delivers faster results, the ability to temporarily save the last project so the next time it’s opened, the most recent project can be selected and its flexibility, with the system workable in different browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

WinCalc 2.0 is only for used by trained professionals, as the programme is not a replacement for detailed planning.

Andy Howland, director of sales and marketing for GEZE UK, said WinCalc 2.0 offers ‘real advantages’ to professionals and will ‘remove a lot of the pain out’ of calculations for window systems.

He added its intuitive operation and speedy navigation delivers quicker results and the ability to download PDF’s in ZIP format is a ‘definite winner.’
