The New Trade Fair Stuttgart: "Innovation Meets Emotion"

Architecture office: Wulf & Partner, Stuttgart

The New Trade Fair Stuttgart 2007 commenced with a perfect infrastructure and connections to all transport operators which is unique in all of Europe. According to the plans of the architects Tobias Wulf and Kai Bierich from Stuttgart, an ultra-modern yet economical and ecologically revolutionary trade fair grounds was created with a total hall area of 100,000 sqm distributed across eight trade fair halls and one congress centre. The spectacular multi-storey car park with rooftop greenery as the trade fair park stretches across the autobahn. The ambitious project received the "Real Estate Award", was distinguished by the "Immobilienzeitung" (real estate magazine), and convinced the jurors in terms of architecture, economic viability, innovation and user friendliness. GEZE as one-source provider of the various areas of building services engineering was a contributing factor.

The most important entrances to the trade fair complex have to cope with a high frequentation from the general public and thereby have an increased safety criteria. The hall facade has been equipped with the GEZE TSA 160 NT automatic revolving door system and with the MA 500 compact high-performance magnetic clamp for escape route and delivery doors. The magnetic clamp closes doors without locking them. In the case of danger, the doors can also be opened quickly and safely even during a power failure. Even the stairwell doors of the high hall and the facade doors of the international congress centre have been equipped with the GEZE TSA 160 NT. This offers trade fair visitors a safe and convenient access in an open, transparent atmosphere.

The doors to the passages connecting the trade fair halls have been equipped with the overhead GEZE TS 5000 L door closer with T-stop sliding rail. With an integrated opening limit, the GEZE T-stop prevents crush injuries between the door leaf and the stopper and thus ensures increased safety and aesthetics, as the entrances and passages can be designed without annoying door stoppers. For secure and smooth logistics, the double leaf doors in the supply and media corridors below the trade fair halls have been equipped with the GEZE TS 5000 R-ISM door closers with integrated smoke sensor. In case of fire, the smoke detector responds and the door closes automatically.

The integrated Boxer door closer has been installed in the wooden fire protection doors together with the RSZ 6 smoke switch control unit. As it is integrated in the door leaf, the door closer and the sliding rail are invisible when the door is closed. The GEZE smoke switch control unit enables the early detection of smoke and fire and automatically closes the fire protection doors in case of a fire.

The GEZE door, window and safety technology which has been realised in the New Trade Fair Stuttgart reflects in building design the maximum requirements towards safety, functionality and design of the currently most demanding trade fair project in Europe.
