The Stellar Lift and Slide door from Epwin Window Systems supports current market trends with its slimline, clean aesthetics and quick fitting innovations, the company has announced.

Philip Parry, business development director at Epwin Window Systems said: “The Lift and Slide Door continues the Stellar innovation of using pre-gasketed profiles and our recently patented pre-gasketed aluminium knock-in beads. Not only is it quick and easy to glaze, minimising installers time on site, it also delivers a neat, clean gasket line for a superior overall finish and eliminates common issues associated with systems relying on old fashioned and time-consuming installation techniques, which can often deliver poor aesthetics further down the line.”

Available in two-, three- and four-pane variations, the Lift and Slide Door is suitable for openings of up to 6.5m. Sash widths of up to 3m wide are available with a choice of 96mm, 68mm and 50mm interlock widths.

A built-in system, which takes some of the weight when opening the panes, makes the doors easy to use. The range of threshold options means the door can meet various access needs including a low threshold for an almost seamless transition. Others are designed to offer easy access for wheelchairs and for more exposed locations.

The system has been Ukas-approved to PAS24:2016 and exceeds all requirements for BS/EN6375-1,2 and 3 in its standard form, also meeting Secured by Design requirements with appropriate glazing.
