Building technology

Get highest levels of security/safety and comfort - with Eichenberger thread drives for building technology

Modern buildings of all sorts are today equipped with a huge variety of drive and automation technology. This technology often works unnoticed in the background, with the occupants benefiting from the high level operating convenience. Innovative drive solutions are frequently used in property protection and access control, as well as shading and air conditioning systems. Ball screws or leadscrews are found in such applications whenever motion is involved. Eichenberger passionately explores limits and designs new profile shapes with unusual materials and dimensions in order to achieve perfect motion.

Application examples

Stop and Go! Automatic bollards are used to control access to paths and entrances. Eichenberger strong screw drives ensure smooth motion when raising and lowering these useful barriers.
Unobtrusive shading systems Flexibility, speed, technology and quality - high demands on mechanical drive components of individual shading systems. The solution is tailor-made, cold-formed high helix Eichenberger screw drives - concealed in the smallest of spaces and therefore also weatherproof.
Speedy sun umbrellas XXL sun and rain protection systems for the catering and hotel sectors can withstand strong winds of up to 100 km/h. The cold-rolled, corrosion-resistant Eichenberger "Speedy" leadscrew spindles make the opening and closing operation completely smooth – speedily, even in regions with salty, dry or humid air.
High-tech for facades Intelligent sun protection systems on building facades automatically adjust to the position of the sun. The drive technology must provide high efficiency in low space environments. Eichenberger meets these demands with high-precision, robust cold-formed ballscrews and leadscrews.
Open Sesame! The door opens, the gate permits entry, a sun umbrella opens to provide shade - all automatically - these elegant motions are performed thanks to Eichenberger leadscrews.
Smart Home State-of-the-art window systems ventilate independently, darken in bright light and react automatically to rain and wind. Windows left open in error and suspected burglaries are reported automatically. The reliable and precise closing, locking, unlocking and tilting processes are made possible by a tailor-made Eichenberger mini ball screw integrated into the fitting.
