Behind every window and every door are people. People who plan the element, people who manufacture and install it and people who later want to walk through or look out. Each of these interest groups has different requirements and needs.
With its guiding principle “Vorsprung mit System”, the Gretsch-Unitas Group of Companies has made it its goal to meet precisely these different requirements, from planning to implementation, commissioning, maintenance and servicing.
The GU Group supports planners, architects and fabricators with holistic system solutions, whether for new construction, renovation or retrofitting. Together with its customers, the products are constantly being further developed to meet the requirements of the market and the production processes of the fabricators. In this way, the processing of the fittings, the handling during transport and the installation on site should be simplified as much as possible. For the end user, the hardware, without itself being in the foreground, should enable a comfortable use of its elements. Issues such as accessibility, design and aesthetics as well as functionality play a major role here.
The GU Group offers holistic system solutions for barrier-free construction, for escape and rescue routes and for access control. Architects, planners, fabricators or the skilled trades benefit from this – and so does the end customer. Because it has long been proven that building products are particularly sustainable as a coherent complete solution.
The Group’s conviction is that even the best products can only optimally exploit their potential if they function efficiently in coordination with each other. That is why the GU Group offers intelligent system solutions, from product to service, from a single source.
Competent partner in the building
The Gretsch-Unitas Group comprises the individual companies BKS, Gretsch-Unitas Baubeschläge, GU Automatic and the newly founded GU BKS Service with their complete solutions – from mechanical access control to central building management systems, from window fittings to automated façade control. From single-family homes to airports. Barrier-free, secure and comfortable – from underground car parks to roof terraces. In order to offer all building users optimum comfort, all components must work together, even across different trades.
GU Group was again present at this year’s BAU and presented its coordinated system solutions. Information and novelties around the areas of automatic entrance systems, escape and object doors, mechanical, electronic and network-based access control systems, locking systems and, of course, in the area of entrance doors, large area elements and facade technology. Experience accessibility, design and functionality were combined on the stand.
Service and support
A product alone is not a solution. Only with the right planning and application can safety, function and economy be achieved. For this reason, the GU Group consistently continues the system concept of the product range in its service offer. The implementation of the vision of a holistically networked group and the idea of “everything from one source” is rounded off with the newly founded GU BKS Service GmbH in the area of services.
A nationwide service, simple and fast process structures and thus fast response times for the customer can thus be guaranteed. The customer receives an “all-round carefree” service package. From the installation of security systems to commissioning and maintenance – no wishes are left unfulfilled.
Open, move, close, secure
The GU Group is one of the leading suppliers of window and door technology, automatic entrance and building management systems. It manufactures and sells system solutions, building hardware, locks, locking systems and access control systems. The GU Group offers a “systematic advantage” with its coordinated complete range and supplies solutions for burglar resistance on doors and windows, for barrier-free construction, for doors in escape and rescue routes and for individual facade solutions for buildings.
