dorma+kaba
Doubling the know-how. Optimizing glass doors.
#WeLiveGlass

Glass competence to 
the power of 2

Two specialist companies join in the genesis of a complete product portfolio – with the high-quality hardware from Dorma uniting with the electronic access control systems of Kaba. A perfect example: The dormakaba c-lever compact* electronic fitting as the ideal digital access control system for the OFFICE glass door system. With dormakaba, everything fits together to create light-flooded transparency combined with high security, advancing progress through the smart combination of complementary technologies. 

*The electronic door fitting with the new design illustrated will be available from the fourth quarter of 2017.

A glass door designed to move

A glass door can separate and unite. It structures the room, adds interest to the ambience. With each movement it confirms our credo – #WeLiveGlass. Our innovations marry contemporary transparency to high security. It’s a combination that’s becoming ever more important in the offices of today and tomorrow. Communication, creativity and not least productivity rely on inspiring collaboration in a conducive, comfortable ambience. Interiors of today require transparency and open access, not divisive walls.

Cleverly conceived

Current architecture shows its best side by harnessing the beautiful clarity achieved with glass. Our new fixtures, fittings and profiles together create a system for innovative interior solutions. Taking into full account the rigors of daily usage, we ensure that the glass doors and partitions we provide are as smart as they are convenient. Thus, in place of mechanical locking cylinders, electronic locking systems can also be installed. Networked for control, with access cards instead of keys, office buildings are rendered both more secure and more efficient. 
With MUNDUS patch fittings for toughened glass assemblies, or OFFICE manual swing door systems, you have the choice not just of various high-grade metal finishes; there are also options for added security through digital enhancement. The OFFICE lock can be combined with the dormakaba c-lever compact*, giving rise to an access control with lever handles as an attractive, compact solution. Unobtrusive in design, this solution offers compelling reliability and a long service lifetime, even under heavy-duty usage. Seeing – and feeling – is believing: We live glass so that everything fits together beautifully.

UNIQUIN – Testament to a magnificent merger

Our new access and room system UNIQUIN offers a perfect example of what can be achieved when two great companies come together. Its profiles are complemented by matching fittings and hardware offering wide-ranging adaptability, from simple room division with glass or another flat material, through to the integration of acoustic elements and installation of sliding and swing doorsets. These in turn can be equipped with electronic access controls. Locks compliant with EN179 and EN1125 for emergency exit security can also be accommodated, with the cabling ducted through the profiles. Plus: The UNIQUIN system’s design is sufficiently versatile to ensure that the same look is maintained throughout a building, even with a wide range of different installation and usage situations.
The joining-together of high-quality hardware and systems with glass, together with the on-site installation of the ensuing solutions, requires specialist knowledge. With our FIRST GLASS EXPERIENCE training concept, dormakaba offers distributors and installers the knowledge necessary to ensure maximum success. The installers’ course is divided into the modules BASIC, PROFESSIONAL and EXPERT. With escalating complexity, each offers detailed theoretical and practical expertise in relation to the company’s Interior Glass Systems. Attendees gain a significant edge in terms of product knowledge and installation competence, as well as the status of qualified dormakaba installation partner. The installation training sessions in Bad Salzuflen and Aying (near Munich) are open to all firms that install dormakaba glass fittings and accessories, or that intend to do so in the future.

Turning visions into reality

This new technology is of particular interest to glass installers and architects who can feel the effect of the system before it is implemented. Inspired by dormakaba’s Virtual Design Center, customers take their first steps toward true project success. The virtual venue is a glass building located within an impressive – and equally virtual – Alpine panorama. With the 360° City App for smartphones or tablets, every employee, distributor and glass installer has access to a unique, digital showroom.
Planners, specifiers, installers and distributors can now provide advice in a more structured and pro-active way. In the 360° City App for smartphones or tablets, they can see which glass, which fittings and which lock systems provide the best modular fit. What kind of safety glass can be installed? How is the card system linked into the solution? How can these dimensions be varied? And finally, what does it all cost? Many questions can be answered at a meeting inside the Virtual Design Center. Here you experience solutions within a defined environment, be it an airport, hospital or a living space at home. It’s all about giving glass room.
