Sliding door system opens up multiple options

Schueco's new ASE 60 and 80.HI range is modular and fully scalable, maximising design flexibility, whatever the project

Continuous improvements and modifications to Schueco's ASE 60 and 80.HI sliding doors are allowing architects working on medium to high-end projects to specify from a single range that can be tailored to exact needs. The company hopes this will speed up decision making and streamline the specification process.

Covering both sliding and lift-and-slide doors, the Schueco ASE 60 and 80 platform comprises 15 opening types, including six single-track options. The result is greater choice, maximum design flexibility and the ability to accommodate widely differing project requirements. 

As the name suggests, Schueco ASE 60 and 80 doors have a basic frame depth of either 60 or 80mm with a maximum vent size of 3.2x3.5m or 3.5x3.2m, the largest currently being offered in the market.

Maximum vent weights are impressive, with both systems being able to accommodate loads of up to 350kg per vent, 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 or SmartClose technology further ensures trouble-free and safe operation.

Glass thickness can also vary: an ASE 60 door can accommodate a thickness from 24 to 40mm; an ASE 80.HI door, 36 to 60mm.

Schueco ASE 60 and 80.HI doors all share certain characteristics. For example, profile sightlines have been kept narrow (from 82mm) 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 Passivhaus standards.

Architects are therefore given the freedom to specify the Schueco ASE door system of their choice, knowing that the thermal performance will meet the precise energy requirements stipulated in a client’s brief.

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 doors. Design Line offers enhanced design benefits, such as concealed fittings that leave the visible surfaces of the vent and outer frame flush, and a slimline interlock with a 40mm sightline that delivers a more-glass-less-frame look for maximum light transmission. 

Additional features of the ASE 60 and 80 range include profiles that, being symmetrically identical, enable the vent to be positioned inside or outside.
