Covering both sliding and lift-and-slide doors, the new Schueco ASE 60 and 80 range comprises fifteen opening types including six single-track options. The result is greater choice, maximum design flexibility and the ability to accommodate widely differing project requirements.
Schueco ASE 60 and 80 doors have a basic frame depth of either 60 mm or 80 mm with a maximum vent size of 3.2m x 3.5m (or 3.5m x 3.2m), which is the largest currently being offered in the market.
Maximum vent weights are equally impressive, with both systems being able to accommodate loads of up to 350 kg, 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.
The inclusion of SmartStop and SmartClose technology further ensures safe, trouble-free operation.
Schueco ASE 60 and 80 doors all share certain characteristics: for example, profile sightlines have been kept narrow (from 82 mm) throughout, enabling the doors to deliver all the benefits of Schueco’s traditional sliding systems with enhanced transparency similar to a panoramic system.
Both systems exhibit exceptional thermal performance. The Schueco ASE 60, in spite of its narrow depth, offers Uw of up to 1.1 W/m2K, while the high-performance Schueco ASE 80.HI meets stringent Passive House standards.
Security levels across the range are up to RC 2 and every system features slimline meeting-stiles and a flush threshold that overcomes the possibility of accidents.
A Design Line option is available on all the doors. Design Line offers enhanced 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 40 mm sight-line that delivers today’s preferred ‘more glass, less frame’ look allowing maximum light transmission.
Additional features of the Schueco ASE 60 and 80 range include profiles that, being symmetrically identical, enable the vent to be positioned on either the inside or the outside.
For German engineering made in Britain, there’s only one name.
