Door, window and safety technology company GEZE UK has launched an automatic underfloor swing door operator that is completely hidden from view. 

UFO NT has a wider range of capabilities and features than its predecessor, including manual operation via a smart swing function.

The new door operator is hidden in the floor, overcoming the problem of limited space above the door frames. It is perfect for use with glass facades or listed or historical buildings with structural limitations or where automatic doors are required but with an operator that is not visible.

UFO NT can be used on any type of door - glass, wood or metal - and, because it is fully concealed, it is especially suitable for sites where vandalism might be a problem. It can also be retrofitted and is compliant with the Equality Act and BS 8300.

Developed from the robust and efficient GEZE Powerturn operator, the UFO NT has a higher IP rating (IP 67), making it suitable for external doors, and a higher closing force than its predecessor size EN1 - EN4.

It can operate leaf widths up to 1250mm (external doors) and 1600mm (internal doors) and leaf weights up to 125kg, surpassing the older unit in all areas of performance.
