A 60 and 80 solution
New from Schueco UK, is a range of superior sliding door systems that provide a solution for high- specification domestic and commercial properties.
Covering both sliding and lift-and-slide doors, the new Schueco ASE 60 and 80 platform comprises fifteen opening types including six single-track options.
The vent frames across both platforms use the same inner and outer shells with only the isolator changing.This facilitates switching between different systems as additional stock-holding requirements are minimised.
All Schueco ASE 60 and 80 doors have a basic frame depth of either 60mm or 80mm with a maximum vent size of 3.2 m x 3.5 m, which is the largest currently being offered in the market. The inclusion of SmartStop and SmartClose technology ensures safe, trouble-free operation.
Maximum vent weights for both systems are 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.
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 sight-line that delivers more glass, less frame allowing maximum light transmission.
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

He says: “We knew that Virtu-AL would be a step-change for the industry when we launched it and these latest figures prove hands-down that it is already a winner and it’s only early days.
“This groundbreaking ultra-modern composite door has successfully satisfied the huge surge in demand for contemporary aluminium products and shown homeowners that they don’t need to compromise at all on their choice of entrance door. With Virtu-AL already topping our sales league, it is clearly inspiring homeowners and we’re certain that this is just the start of a very exciting reign at the top for it.” ❐
