Schüco ASE 80 lift-and-slide door system


The Schüco ASE 80 visible leaf frame sliding door and glass wall system combines the simple operation of the well-known lift-and-slide doors. In addition, with a slim appearance, and the recessed thresholds allow for uncompromising patio use. The Schüco ASE 80 product group can also be installed in a ceiling height desig. Where the enclosure extension method developed at KAV provides an endless installation option in width, even in the floor plan.


Lift-and-slide doors are very easy to operate. By turning the longer handle down 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. Example being the case of kitchen furnitur, if required.


In terms of sash weights (which means the combined weight of the sash frame, hardware and glass plane). The manual operation allows for sliding a lower load. This is 500kg for the ASE 80 system. In the case of motorised operation, which can be controlled locally and by a building management system. The sash weight can increase significantly, to 600 kg. It is important to point out the significance of the sash weight is made up of the glass panel. Of 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 safety, acoustics and sun protection capability levels, but we also choose a more robust design due to static suitability. The weight of the glass is 2.5 kg/mm/m2, so it is easy to calculate the weight of the future glass panel, knowing the layer order. The thickness of the glass layer order that can be included in the structure can satisfy the traditional domestic 3-layer insulation glass needs.

In terms of appearance, the colour and/or quality of the usual external and internal surface treatment of KAV aluminium doors and windows may also differ here. However, the two-tone appearance must be used with care. When visible towards the exterior at the deeper casings of sliding doors. The cases can be partially recessed on the side and top. However, if the type of casing and/or the method and height of drainage allow. KAV builds with a system element dedicated to this threshold. Thus 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. These sashes can be designed with external or internal rail offset. In the case of handles and motorised movement, the position and design of the switches may change. There are several possibilities to personalize your home.


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