Swing Door Drive for Automatic Doors
GEZE TSA 160 NT and variants


Automatic swing door systems TSA 160 NT

It may sound simple but this requires highly sophisticated technology.

The swing door system TSA 160 NT makes sure that everything runs smoothly, day after day from second to second. At the same time it offers a maximum convenience and safety. The swing door systems TSA 160 NT easily cope with the frequently tough duties of everyday functions, whilst maintaining safety. Where it is too cumbersome to operate a door by hand, the swing door system TSA 160 NT takes over this job. This provides particular benefits in shops and department stores, hospitals and schools, in homes for the elderly or disabled, as well as in airports and railway stations.

Where doors shut quickly, safely and tight, we can of course also expect a significant contribution to energy savings. Therefore, the tried and tested TSA 160 NT system is frequently used for lobbies, entrances to workshops and cool rooms as well as for doors at the end of corridors.

Likewise, where the highest demands are placed on hygiene, the GEZE swing door actuators are frequently found.

Safety first

The TSA 160 NT actuators are the trusted solution for safety at work, access control as well as interlocks and of course this system fulfills the regulation DIN 18650.

An additional safety feature are the GEZE safety sensors, which control the opening and closing action. These sensors will stop the movement of the door in time, if people, animals or movable objects are within the swing opening range of the door.

In emergencies they can save lives: The swing door systems TSA 160 NT F and TSA 160 NT F-IS are approved for the use on smoke and fire doors.


For single-leaf doors

Range of application

The TSA 160 NT system is adaptable to fit your requirements.

For new construction or refurbishment, for inside or outside areas.

In addition, there are a broad range of materials to use with the TSA 160 NT; timber, steel, plastic or aluminium.
It only should be dry and the ambient temperatures should be within the usual limits (- 10 °C to + 60 °C).

The small dimensions (100 x 120 x 690 mm) make it particularly easy for the designer and fitter. And of course, they fit well in a retrofit situation.

Nevertheless, TSA 160 NT actuators are rugged and powerful. They will open doors up to 250 kg in weight and with maximum door widths up to 1400 mm without any problem and still perfectly control the closing action. The same actuator can be used for left or right handed doors.

Functions and benefits

The electrohydraulic swing door actuators TSA 160 NT ensure total satisfaction in connection with all doors. A hydraulic pump system controls the open state and the closing spring mechanism governs the closing process. The door system remains optical and acoustical, whilst unobstructive.

The construction with vibration dampers ensures a low noise level. All TSA 160 NT systems are extremely cost-effective. They require very little energy and service. As far as comfort is concerned, the TSA 160 NT is not at all modest. The drive can be combined with all known control options and offers a system ready to be fitted – if required with remote control.

Even power cuts are no problem for theTSA 160 NT. In this case the door can be opened manually just as any normal door. Manual opening is also possible at any time while the actuators are switched on.

TSA 160 NT schematic

The TSA 160 NT is a swing door actuator with electronic control and integrated programme switch with the positions “off ”, “automatic” and “hold open”. The system can be fi tted to left and right handed doors with a pulling or pushing function - for pushing function with linkage and for pulling function with guide rail.

Depending on the design and arrangement it is possible to achieve opening angles of up to 1150. Apart from the opening speed, the closing force and closing speed can be fully adjusted. The latching action can be adjusted as well through a valve. The TSA 160 NT is mounted at the head of the door on the hinge side or the opposite hinge side.

The TSA 160 NT is designed for door widths up to 1400 mm. In the pulling version the minimum door width is dependent on the mounting of the actuator (actuator off set) and the required opening angle of the door.

For double-leaf doors

For double-leaf doors the swing door system TSA 160 NT off ers different options:

  • TSA 160 NT IS
    If you require an integrated control of the closing sequence – as required for fire doors – you are on the safe side with the TSA 160 NT-IS.
    As an alternative, you can separate actuators for each half of the doubleleaf door and link these through an intermediate cover. This will ensure complete synchronisation of the two TSA 160 NT systems.
  • TSA 160 NT / TSA 162
    You can also choose a lower cost alternative: one TSA 160 NT in combination with a TSA 162. The TSA 162 operates as a slave actuator and is reliably controlled by the master actuator. It can be upgraded to a TSA 160 NT at any time.
  • TSA 160 NT IS / TS
    Pulling or pushing, with integrated door closing sequence selector. The active leaf is automated; fixed leaf with door closer function and permanent hold-open.

Approved for fire protection

Ideal for single-leaf and double-leaf fire-proof doors. In the case of fire it is essential that the door actuator system operates well:

Range of sizes for appropriate door widths in accordance with European Standard DIN EN 1154

EN size 3 max. 950 mm
EN size 4 max. 1100 mm
EN size 5 max. 1250 mm
EN size 6 max. 1400 mm
Landesbank Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart

A clear case for the GEZE TSA 160 NT F. This system has been approved for single-leaf fire doors, mounted at the head of the door and equipped with an electric door strike (DIN 18763). The approval has been given for the "push" version of the door. This means that the actuator is mounted on the opposite side of the hinges at the head of the door. The TSA 160 NT F will move doors with a width up to 1400 mm or a maximum weight of 250 kg.

Just like the other TSA 160 NT systems, the TSA 160 NT F can be operated with all known control systems. It is possible to start the actuator through various contact devices (radar, infrared, light curtains, switches). Before startup the catch bolt must be released. For this reason the door frame must be equipped with an electromagnetic door strike. When using the TSA 160 NT F for smoke and fi re doors, certain monitoring equipment such as smoke detectors are required, which will in the case of fi re deactivate all contact devices opening the door, release the door from a fixed position and disconnect the door strike from the electricity.

The actuator is started up again by pressing the reset switch on the actuator. The control of the network relay (24 V/DC) is carried out by the smoke switch, whilst the energy to the actuator (230 V/AC) comes from the main supply.

The TSA 160 NT F demonstrates its fl exibility also with smoke alarm systems and has been approved for all major systems. Official approvals are available on request.

In the case of fire, the most important factor for double-leaf doors is, that the closing sequence must function one hundred percent. This can be guaranteed only with an integrated closer control - it may become a question of survival. In the case of danger or a power cut the TSA 160 NT F-IS will ensure the correct closing sequence of both halves of the double leaf door. The TSA 160 NT F-IS does not require an externally fitted closer control mechanism and is, therefore, visually, a more sophisticated system. Of course, it is also approved for double-leaf smoke and fi re protection doors.

The cabling and release mechanism of the TSA 160 NT F-IS are accommodated in the intermediate cover, making the installation easy. In other words: the amount of cabling required from the electrical contractor is no more than needed for single door actuators.

The technical characteristics of the GEZE TSA 160 NT F-IS are identical to the TSA 160 NT F.
