An advanced patio door, the Schüco ASE 60 sliding door suits both renovation and new build projects from the renowned Schüco system whilst providing premium design, top-quality components and one of the best sliding actions with a smooth and near-silent operation. Designed for individual openings or larger spans when coupled together, Schüco ASE 60 also provides advanced Schüco insulation for low U-Values and ingenious options for enhanced functionality and user comfort.
Schüco ASE 60 Sliding Door – Introduction
Winning the Red Dot Design award in 2018 and 2019, the Schüco ASE 60 door is only available as a standard sliding lift and slide design, whereby the panel lifts off the track via a rotating designer door handle. Available in two and three panel designs with the option of a fixed or open-corner sliding door arrangement too, these doors provide a modern look to the familiar patio door design thanks to slimmer frame and sliding panel profiles. Single tracks let one door slide behind a fixed panel, whilst double and triple tracks give more options on which panel to use and the direction it slides to.
The doors offer both a standard or low track design, and the clean lines and elegant appearance extends to the door components and fittings, designed to fit into specially designed grooves. The lift and slide handle is architecturally attractive whilst its large size provides easy sliding door operation even for those with disability.
Schüco ASE 60 Sliding Doors – Features and Benefits
For contemporary homes or existing dwellings, Schüco ASE 60 doors provide bold modern styling for standard or large-size openings, with excellent security, weather protection and energy efficiency. The modular design of the frame uses a series of half-profile designs, which can be coupled to create the design single, double or triple track frame, reducing the number of profiles used in its construction.
Smart Stop and Smart Close Feature
In addition to the more functional lift and slide operation, Schüco ASE 60 sliding doors have enhancements on manually operated doors. First is the Smart Stop feature, the benefit of which is to slow down the door in the final closing position and stop it from slamming into the frame through careless use. Supported by the Smart Close, this feature has the benefit of controlling the final closing process, with the mechanism drawing the sliding panel into the final closed position. Also available as an option is a fully automatic sliding door, ideal for the largest door panels and weights.
40mm interlock and middle mullion
The ASE 60 model comes with a slimline 40mm middle mullion allowing larger glass sizes and less visible aluminium at the central point of the door. This model also creates sliding windows with sizes as small as 630mm wide and 1334mm high, or doors up to a maximum of 3500mm wide and 3500mm high. The benefit is using the ASE60 within contemporary homes where sliding windows can match the patio doors and delivering a coherent glazing design throughout.
Excellent Thermal Performance and U-Values
U-Values of between 1.1Wm2K comfortably meet the requirements of 2022 Building Regulations, for both replacement projects and new builds. Glazing is available up to 40mm thick, accommodating both high performance double glazed units or triple glazing.
Up to RC2 Security
RC2 security is an increased protection standard for dwellings where the door is subjected to timed attack tests using basic burglary tools. The benefit is a secure door set when combined with laminated safety glass.
