Low sightlines

Aluplast has added a new low-sightline fixed sash profile to its Lift-and-Slide door.

Unveiled at this year’s FIT Show, the Aluplast Lift-and-Slide, combines reduced manufacturing times, Passivhaus-equivalent standard thermal efficiency, and modular aluskin aluminium external cladding options.
The German systems house has launched a new low-sightline option on the fixed sash of 32mm.

Ian Cocken, director of sales and marketing at Aluplast, said: “The Aluplast Lift-and-Slide door is about end-user appeal. It’s not a product that homeowners purchase because they need to. The soft touch lift-and-slide mechanism, the aluminium finish options combined with 27 foil colour options – this is an interiror designers dream product. It’s about aspirational appeal.

“Adding an ultra-low sightline on the fixed sash creates an almost seamless connection between inside and outdoor spaces and that sense of additional exclusivity. The minute end-users come into contact and get up close to this product, they want it.

“Also offering considerable manufacturing and installation efficiencies, the Aluplast Lift-and-Slide is a really high margin opportunity for fabricators and installers.”
