New slim lift and slide option
Deceuninck Aluminium has added a slim interlock option to its energy efficient Decalu163 Lift-and-Slide aluminium patio door.
The heavy-weight system can accommodate individual sash weights of 400kg and achieves U-values of 0.8 W/m2K triple glazed.
Nigel Headford, Deceuninck Aluminium’s business development director, said: “Lift and slide products are seeing resurgent demand as part of the lockdown-driven boom in home improvement.
“Straightforward to manufacture, with only minimal investment in tooling required, and easy to install, the Decalu163 is now available with a slim 53mm interlock option increasing homeowner appeal, making it an instant win for fabricators and installers.”
The Decalu163 Lift-and-Slide is available in single, twin and triple-track options.
In common with the Decalu88 Bi-Fold, and its wider window and door range, the Decalu163 is supplied in dual-colour, textured and marine grade finishes as standard.
It also features pre-inserted flush gaskets and thermal breaks used by Deceuninck Aluminium across the Decalu window and door range.
“If you can manufacture a product that has proven appeal with installers for minimal investment and stockholding, why would you buy in?” Nigel said.
“You can manufacture the entire Decalu range – that’s the Decalu163 Lift-and-Slide, Decalu88 Bi-fold, French and residential door, and the window range – on one set of tooling. Highly modular, you don’t need to tie-up cash in stock, and manufacturing times are 40% faster.”
