Schüco systematically and continuously optimises existing and established products. The result of this ongoing development is the new ASE 60/80 (Aluminium Sliding Element) sliding system range. Its range concept was a top priority during development, as was detailed optimisation of the fabrication process. Schüco is opening up many new dimensions with the new range – the profile system with its optimised insulation zones offers significantly improved thermal insulation properties in all basic depths, even up to passive house level (with a basic depth of 80 mm). Furthermore, all versions of the system – single, double and triple track – are based on multi-functional profiles, which allow for optimal use of identical parts. The fittings system, which is also modular, can be used as both sliding and lift-and-slide fittings. With just a few exceptions, the components are identical for both basic depths. An expanded range of sizes, slimline profile constructions and solutions for the bimetallic effect complement the pioneering thermal insulation, thereby fulfilling countless architectural design options.
