New lift and slide door

Deceuninck Aluminium has launched the Decalu163 Lift-and-Slide aluminium patio door.

Able to accommodate individual sash weights of up to 400kg, and with single, twin and triple-track options, the new Decalu163 offers a high degree of design flexibility. The company said.

It comes with a slim interlock and flush finish options, plus ultra-smooth operating and light-touch opening.

U-values are as low as 1.3W/m2k, with high performance pre-inserted and flush gaskets and advanced thermal-breaking technology.

Nigel Headford, Deceuninck Aluminium’s business development director, said the door is available in dual-colour and marine grade finishes as standard.

“It’s a premium aluminium lift-and-slide door but, with increased manufacturing efficiencies and the price point at which we can supply it, generates high-margin opportunities for fabricators and installers,” he said.

“As we come back as an industry from the impact of Covid-19, it generates a lot of high margin opportunities throughout the supply chain.”
