Schüco is promising faster fabrication with the launch of its new ASE 51 PD sliding door which it says eliminates the need for structural bonding between the glass and vent profile.

The ASE 51 PD has a 32 mm interlock and 45 mm outer frame, which can be concealed within the building’s structure.

Fabrication is further simplified with a wraparound system with screw port connection, while a reduced profile selection provides a range of design possibilities with fewer profile types to keep in stock.

It is available with a variety of threshold options including a concealed level threshold with external ‘ACO’ style gutter profile, and a low threshold option suited to refurbishment projects.

The system can accommodate both double and triple glazed units, with options for 200 kg and 400 kg rollers – the latter adjustable to accommodate building tolerances.

The locking mechanism is integrated within the door frame, complemented by a newly designed handle. Additionally, system extension packers accommodate ventilation requirements without impacting on the design.

Head of product management Duncan Grover said: “This new addition allows them to expand their residential offerings with a product that is not only quicker and simpler to fabricate, but also meets the high standards homeowners expect, whether they are refurbishing or constructing new builds.”

The new sliding door is available to see in the Schüco showroom in Milton Keynes. Current Schüco partners can find the ASE 51 PD on SchüCal.
