SCHÜCO ASE 60/80 HI
Aluminum Sliding System
New living and lifestyle requirements demand clever and creative solutions. Unrestricted ease of access, maximum comfort and a puristic design need not be a contradiction. The new generation of Schüco ASE 60/80 sliding systems enable almost any choice of individual configuration.
Outstanding design combined with optimal thermal insulation
Schüco is opening up many new dimensions with the new Aluminum Sliding Elements ASE 60/80. The profile systems with their optimized insulation zones offer significantly improved thermal insulation properties in all basic depths, even up to passive house level (with the basic depth of 3-1/8” (80 mm). Further, all system versions – single, double and triple track – are based on multifunctional profiles, which allow optimal use of identical parts.
The fittings system, which is also modular, can be used as both sliding and lift-and-slide fittings: apart from a few expectations, all the components are identical. An expanded range of sizes, slim line profile constructions and solutions complement the forward-looking thermal insulation, thereby fulfilling countless architectural design options. The fittings’ components are covered by a cover profile, ensuring that the straight design is maintained even when the vent is open. A central fittings groove guarantees optimal distribution of the glass weight and thereby quiet operation. Narrow vent profiles with a face width from just 3-1/4” (82 mm).
The narrow face widths and the option of level thresholds make the new Schüco Sliding Elements unique in terms of form, design and user comfort. Moreover, the concealed fittings groove means that technical components, such as fittings or insulating foams, are no longer visible.
Vent weights of up to 1300 lb (500 kg) are now possible, with vents available in both internally and externally running configurations. The travel range of the sliding system has also been maximized up to approximately 59’ 11/16” (18 m). The new system permits extremely simple cabling and assembly without the need for a cable link connector between the vent frame and outer frame.
The aluminum outer frame with thermal break, roller profiles made from folded stainless steel with specific surface design reduces friction for particularly quiet operation. An integrated, continuous cover strap on the insides of the coupling profiles covers the fixing screws with a uniform appearance. Three sealing levels exist in the center area for a reliable sealing function.
The center gaskets in the magnetic design ensure reliable gasket pressure, even with increased wind loads. The transparency can be increased even more by means of the optional narrow interlock piece with a face width of just 1-9/16” (40 mm).
