Specialist terms clearly explained
From C for Claw bolt to U for U-Value – all the entrance doors terminology explained in simple terms.
A variety of design options, high stability and durability: aluminium offers countless opportunities for integrating innovative technology into doors with the best thermal insulation values and optimum functionality, whilst also lending distinctive character to every house with a wide range of opening widths, colours and surface finishes.
Outstanding thermal insulation properties and a high level of security
Doors from the Schüco ADS SimplySmart series score highly due to their outstanding thermal insulation properties, so your home remains a pleasant and comfortable temperature in the winter. The five-chamber aluminium profile construction, a double insulation level and an innovative centre gasket concept make it possible to achieve thermal insulation values which are very close to those of an insulated outer wall. An additional aluminium centre profile together with a double-web profile ensure greater stability of the door construction and offer optimum protection against intruders. ADS SimplySmart is burglar-resistant up to resistance class RC 3 (WK 3), while simultaneously satisfying the highest requirements in terms of design.
Versatile design and exceptional aesthetics
Schüco ADS SimplySmart offers a range of design options and highlights the finer features of a variety of architectural surroundings.
Automated comfort and security components such as the Schüco Door Control System (DCS) also allow visually seamless integration in the door constructions. Cover strips for covering fittings and insulating bar grooves furthermore guarantee a continuously black door rebate appearance – for the most demanding of design requirements.
Maximum stability and durability
All fittings in the Schüco ADS SimplySmart range such as locks and hinges are installed in the aluminium centre profile of the door to be extremely robust, thus ensuring lasting durability. A newly developed split hybrid insulating bar again guarantees additional stability and minimises the so-called bimetallic effect. Dark entrance doors can deform when there are large temperature differences between the outside and inside of the door, such as during high summer with very bright sunlight coming in from the south. The new hybrid insulating bar from the Schüco ADS SimplySmart range manages to avoid these deformations so that the entrance door offers optimum functionality at all times and remains a symbol of high-quality for the house and its inhabitants.
The Schüco ADS 90 PL.SI inward-opening, face-fitted entrance door construction is tailored to meet the special requirements of the entrance door market and fulfils the highest demands for function and design. The Soft Line (SL) design with its elegantly rounded profile contour offers special design options for outer frames and glazing beads.
The Schüco ADS 70.HI door combines excellent thermal insulation with the benefits of the Schüco ADS door systems. The basic depth of 70 mm ensures a high degree of stability. The highly thermally insulated door is ideally suited to improving the energy balance of a building - with maximum planning freedom. The timeless design is also available with rounded contours and can be combined perfectly with Schüco window systems.
PVC-U entrance doors are characterised by excellent thermal insulation. They easily meet the statutory thermal insulation values due to the proven multi-chamber profile technology. PVC-U entrance doors also have a very attractive price/performance ratio.
Schüco LivIng sets new standards in terms of comfort, security, energy efficiency and design. With a basic depth of 82 mm and excellent thermal insulation values, it has all the features that are necessary for pioneering energy-saving entrance doors. New sealing technology offers effective protection against draughts, moisture and noise – throughout the lifetime of the entrance door. “Made in Germany” quality and burglar resistance to resistance class RC 2 are further reasons to choose a Schüco LivIng entrance door.
An elegant look and a high degree of security due to the concealed steel reinforcement make the Schüco Thermo 6 PVC-U system ideal for private homes. It is also energy-efficient.

Steel entrance doors are becoming ever more important. This is due to both the outstanding structural properties of the material and the extremely high resisting force. Steel door constructions are therefore particularly suitable for entrance areas, since this is where the requirements for load-bearing and security are extremely high.
The highly thermally insulated Janisol HI steel profile system is highly suitable for constructing attractive and sophisticated single and double-leaf doors, outside - also with side sections and toplights.
The Jansen Economy 60 non-insulated door system is similar in look to the thermally insulated, flush-fitted Janisol® doors. This ensures uniform appearances for different planning requirements.
