Schüco ASE 60

Schüco ASE 60 lift-and-slide door system.

The Schüco ASE 60 visible leaf frame sliding door and glass wall system is the little brother of the well-known ASE 80 lift-and-slide door, which, although with some compromises, meets the uncompromising requirement of a manually operated lift-and-slide door. Although the Schüco ASE 60 product group is suitable for receiving a narrower layer of glass panels, i.e. glass panes of traditional size, the enclosure extension method developed at KAV offers an infinite installation option in width, even in several broken lines in the floorplan.


Lift-and-slide doors are very easy to operate. By turning the longer handle with a large lever arm, pushing the carriages placed in the lower frame of the sash and placing them on the rail, the glass field becomes slideable in one direction. The sashes can also be opened or closed by a damping or auxiliary mechanism, as required.


In terms of sash weights, which means the combined weight of the sash frame. Hardware and glass panel, manual operation allows for sliding a lower load. This is only 200 kg for the ASE 80 system. Motor operation is not yet available. It is important to point out that a significant part of the sash weight is from the glass panel. Which is influenced by the applied glass layer order. The thickness of the glass sheets built into the applied layer order may be increased. Not only due to the level of intrusion prevention or accident prevention safety, acoustics and sun protection capability levels. However, we also choose a more robust design due to static suitability. The weight of the glass is given, thus it is easy to calculate the weight of the future glass panels. Thickness of the glass layer can be included in the structure. Traditional domestic three-layer insulation glass needs only through compromises; it is devised for two-layer glass instead.


In terms of appearance, colour and quality of the usual surface treatment of KAV aluminium doors and windows may differ. Although the two-tone appearance must be used with care when visible towards the exterior at casings of sliding doors. The cases can be partially recessed on the side and top. However, if the type of casing and the method and height of drainage allow, and if we build with a system element dedicated for this, the threshold may be lowered completely to the upper edge of the casing. At the junction of the sliding sash and the fixed side lighting panel, it is possible to use a so-called sash profile, which results in an extra slim appearance on the facade. We also have the option of installing fixed elements with external or internal glazing; the sashes can be designed with external or internal rail offset.


The glass panels can be joined next to each other with a silicone (structured) design. Which is a thin pressure plate division or a visible divider connected to the bottom and top of the casing. Schüco ASE 60
