Just one touch tells you all you need to know about a Schueco sliding door

The moment you open a Schueco sliding door – whether it’s a straight slide, tilt-and-slide or folding system – you know you’re dealing with quality. The solid feel of the frame and the effort-less ease with which it glides open make that instantly clear.

Which is what you’d expect from Schueco UK, the British subsidiary of Schüco International KG, one of Germany’s leading specialists in precision-engineered, made-to-measure aluminium products for the home.

Years of experience and close attention to design detailing mean that a Schueco system combines quality, form and functionality in a single harmonious whole.

And that’s something you’ll really appreciate on a chilly autumn evening when you realise how the superb insulation of a Schueco sliding door minimises both heat loss and external noise to leave you feeling snug and warm.

And of course you’re also totally secure thanks to the option of a multi-point locking system that provides excellent resistance against intruders.

The best views are through a Schueco panoramic sliding door

A Schueco panoramic sliding door never gets in the way.

A completely concealed outer frame, narrow central meeting stile and a completely flush threshold mean exceptionally large areas of clear glass with unobstructed views to the outside and includes a 90o all-glass corner.

The system has been designed to accommodate very wide spans so, concealed within the sill profile of each door leaf, are hard-wearing, integral rollers. These allow the leaves to run very easily, no matter how large they are. And there are new bi-parting four-pane versions with two sliding leaves and two fixed or four sliding leaves.

For the ultimate luxury, there is a low-noise motorised version that works at the touch of a but-ton or as part of a whole house operating system. As always with Schueco, the choice is yours.

Whatever version you specify, access has been made particularly safe by a threshold which lies completely flush, ruling out the possibility of tripping with a full tray of glasses!

Open up your world with Schueco folding doors

Everyone loves being in the open air when the sun shines.

And when you install one of Schueco’s folding/sliding doors – which allow a clear opening of as much as 95% – you can enjoy that sensation inside as well as outside your home, all day long.

It’s a fabulous, liberating feeling.

Which is reinforced by the design options available: you can specify not only the colour (and there are plenty to choose from), but also whether the leaves glide inwards or outwards to stack.

Every folding door is thermally insulated with close-fitting, weathertight gaskets to eliminate draughts. Precision-made rollers and a top guide mean that even a door system with multiple leaves is easy to operate.

In addition, being highly engineered, a Schueco folding door is exceptionally strong and de-pendably secure despite elegantly slim frames and narrow face-widths.

For German engineering made in Britain, there’s only one name.

Together with its worldwide network partners Schueco creates sustainable building envelopes that focus on people and their needs in harmony with nature and technology. Window, door and façade solutions from Schueco meet the highest requirements in terms of design, comfort and security. At the same time, CO2emissions are reduced through energy efficiency, thereby conserving natural resources.

The company delivers tailored products for newbuilds and renovations, designed to meet individual user needs in all climate zones. Everyone involved is supported with a comprehensive range of services at every stage of the construction process.

With 4,750 employees and 12,000 partner companies, Schueco is active in more than 80 countries and achieved a turnover of 1.460 billion euros in 2016.

The systems we produce for the residential market are only one part of our business. Founded in Bielefeld, Germany, in 1951, we are a global company responsible for the aluminium façades, windows and doors on many of the world’s most prestigious buildings.

We are proud of our reputation for unrivalled engineering, system design and customer service that has made us the company of choice for top architects and designers the world over.

And you’ll find these same qualities in The Schueco Contemporary Living Collection, a range of highly insulated systems designed specifically for domestic homes. That’s because, whatever the size of the project, we devote the same care and attention to ensuring our products fully satisfy the demands of our customers.

Doors that open easily; windows that shut tightly; façades that take your breath away. And being aluminium they’ll never need painting, only minimal maintenance –and eventually, at the end of their long, long life, they can be completely recycled.

It’s a responsible attitude from a responsible company that cares about our shared future.
