Slimmer sightlines

Schüco has improved the technical values of its ASS 70 FD bifold system, which has resulted in fewer aluminium sightlines.

The Schüco ASS 70 FD bifold system offers a wide choice of opening types, is fully adjustable, has even larger opening widths, and promises extremely quiet movement, the company said.

The new maximum vent width of 1,500mm is available in an HD design for Schüco ASS 70 FD bifold units. Furthermore, the maximum vent weight has increased to 150kg.

The new technical values have been achieved to offer class-leading sightlines and features while continuing to meet the quality, specifications and expectations of the original Schüco ASS 70 FD system.

Other new features and benefits include a 90° corner opening that opens both inwards and outwards. There is also a new flat threshold profile with optimised drainage, a magnetic retaining catch to facilitate vent locking, and a screw-fixed corner and T-cleats for easier on-site installation. Additionally, the new ASS 70 FD system has been PAS 24 tested.

These improvements offer further aesthetic benefits such as greater transparency due to minimal aluminium sightlines, the company said, and fewer vents mean less fabrication time, which means a lower overall cost for the customer.
