Schueco UK Ltd is now offering what it believes to be a unique product, its ASS 70.HI fully glazed, lift-sliding door with a ProSol TF thin-film photovoltaic option, enabling this top-of-the-range system to deliver exceptional thermal insulation, generate PV energy and provide solar shading/screening simultaneously.
The Schueco ASS 70.HI is available in single, double or triple track configurations. The 70mm deep doors glide effortlessly on stainless steel tracks and the lift-slide action is facilitated by stylish ergonomic handles. With a low threshold height of only 48mm, leaf weights up to 300kg and security up to Class 2 EN V 1627, this door meets a wide range of specifications.
Leaf widths and heights up to 3m are possible with this premium door, while class-leading 'U' values from 1.6 W/m2K with double-glazing, down to 1.3 W/m2K with triple-glazing, easily exceed Building Regulations.
The launch of the ProSol TF option makes the Schueco ASS 70.HI sliding door even more versatile as it can now be included as an element of larger Building Integrated Photovoltaic projects incorporating façades, cladding and windows.
Depending upon design requirements, Schueco's amorphous silicon ProSol TF can be specified in opaque format for maximum output or in varying degrees of transparency, providing vision to the outside and soft shading to the inside. When equipped with ProSol TF, ASS 70.HI is a perfect example of Schueco's Energy2 Saving Energy, Generating Energy concept.
