New sliding door range

Schueco UK has launched a range of sliding door systems for high-specification domestic and commercial properties.

Covering both sliding and lift-and-slide doors, the new Schueco ASE 60 & 80 platform comprises 15 opening types including six single-track options.

The vent frames across both platforms use the same inner and outer shells with only the isolator changing. This facilitates switching between different systems since additional stock-holding requirements are minimised. Benefits for fabricators include easier up-selling and the ability to cater for both standard and Passivhaus projects.

All Schueco ASE 60 and 80 doors have a basic frame depth of either 60mm or 80mm with a maximum vent size of 3.2m x 3.5m.

Both systems can accommodate loads of up to 350kg, offering the possibility of enhanced thermal performance through triple glazing. Rollers positioned in the middle of the vent distribute the weight evenly, minimising friction and ensuring that vents move particularly smoothly.

A Design Line option is available on all the doors, which offers design benefits such as concealed fittings that leave the visible surfaces of the vent and outer frame completely flush, and a slimline interlock with a 40mm sightline.

The Schueco ASE 60 offers Uw of up to 1.1W/m2K, while the Schueco ASE 80.HI meets Passivhaus standards.
