New for high-traffic areas

Schüco UK has launched an integrated Ground-Floor Treatment (GFT) product that has been developed for high-traffic areas in commercial and public buildings including colleges, schools and hospitals.

Schüco GFT is a thermally broken pivot door and screen system, with an overall basic depth of 65mm. The system is compatible with the Schüco FWS facade range and the Schüco AWS 70 SC window system.

“Through conversations with our customers we spotted the need for a highly durable and easy-to-fabricate GFT system that would surpass the often extreme demands of education and commercial buildings,” Stephen Jeffries, product manager at Schüco UK, said.

The Schüco ADS 65 pivot door – which may be single- or double-leafed, with a maximum leaf size of 1.1m x 2.5m and a leaf weight of 110kg – is cleated and further reinforced with optional tie-rods top and bottom.

The door can be specified with an anti-finger trap profile feature and offers a choice of locking options. Burglar resistance is certified to PAS 24 across all locking configurations.

The system is fully compliant with The Equality Act 2010 with a 1,100mm maximum door width and specific reduced operating force closer options.
