The ASE 60 and 80.HI range features sliding and lift-and-slide door options, impressive thermal performance and 15 opening types
Schueco's ASE 60 and 80.HI sliding doors are modular and fully scalable, maximising architects’ options, whatever their project - from medium to high-specification domestic and commercial properties.
The company hopes that being able to specify from a single quality range that can be tailored to exact needs will help speed up decision making and streamline the specification process.
The ASE 60 and 80 platform includes both sliding and lift-and-slide doors and 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 60mm or 80mm 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 impressive, with both systems able to accommodate loads of up to 350kg, 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 safe, trouble-free operation.
The thickness of the glass that can be used also varies: an ASE 60 door can accommodate glass with a thickness of 24mm to 40mm; an ASE 80.HI door, 36mm 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 the 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 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 40mm sightline that delivers today’s preferred more-glass-less-frame look for 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.
