New to the UK is an aluminium door system from Schueco that delivers improved thermal values, better security and enhanced durability. Known as the Schueco ADS door, it is available in two versions, heavy duty and standard, and is designed to integrate perfectly with the Schueco AWS window range.
Schueco ADS HD, the heavy duty version, is available in three depths: 65, 70 and 75mm. Designed for high-traffic entrances as a replacement for the popular Royal S door, it can be equipped with special new barrel hinges that have been subjected to a punishing EN 12400 test regime in which the door is opened and closed 1 million times.
The new barrel hinges with multi-directional adjustment make it suitable for vent weights of up to 200kg and vent heights up to 3,000mm. Compared to the previous Schueco Royal S door, insulation has also been increased but the real improvement is on size, weight and durability. Schueco ADS HD doors deliver security ratings up to EN V 1627 class WK 3 and PAS 23/24.
The standard Schueco ADS door comes in a variety of frame depths, 50, 60, 65, 70 and 75mm. Having been subjected to cycle testing that involves opening and closing the door 200,000 times (to EN Standard 12400), the doors reliability and durability are assured.
The ADS version is designed for smaller size and weight doors where insulation is important such as side doors and balcony doors and can accommodate vent weights up to 120kg and vent heights of 2,500mm. It offers exceptional U values (down to 1.56 W/m2K) as well as EN 1627 WK2 level security.
Both versions of the Schueco ADS door are offered with single or multi-point locking (including a new economical hook lock) as well as panic fittings and can be fitted with surface-mounted hinges, concealed hinges or new barrel hinges. A choice of handles that fit into the existing award-winning Schueco range provides a stylish finishing touch.
