For over 70 years the Planet drop-down seals have been eliminating the need for thresholds, so providing a barrier-free seal at the bottom of doors. The birthplace of our seals was in the carpenter’s shop W. Jaggi und Söhne in Zurich. The first Planet drop-down seals for doors were custom built with care and precision and quickly evolved with practical experience.
This evolution resulted in the seals rapidly being adopted by ingenious carpenters, exploiting an unfulfilled need in the market. The production of Planet drop-down seals has finally been sourced out and sold in 1998.
The setting up of Planet GDZ AG in Tagelswangen, Zurich, came from a change in ownership in 1998 and today the innovative owners René Gyger and Andreas Dintheer continue the evolution of this successful business.
Planet GDZ AG is always developing new, special versions of drop-down seals and produces them in Switzerland for world-wide delivery. «As a Swiss producer of high-quality, drop-down seals, market proximity is very important to us so that we can develop solutions that respond to our customers' needs.»
