The doors are ideal for use as an economic replacement for yesterday’s aluminium sliding doors with traditional UK style construction whilst upgrading thermal performance for today’s regulations.The slim sight lines are also ideal for contemporary new build applications.
Slide Mono Rail offers the option of 2 or 4 pane doors. The 2 pane mono-track option provides a single opening sash sliding over a fixed pane. The 4 pane option allows for two opening sashes in the centre sliding over fixed panes on either side.
The doors are fitted with a multi-point locking mechanism that locates into a one piece stainless steel keep offering enhanced security and ease of fabrication. The system is assembled through screw-fixing the outer frame head and cill into both jambs. The system uses wrap around glazing where sash profiles are fixed together around the glass units and gaskets.
Profiles can be finished in a wide choice of standard and non-standard powder coated finishes from Smarts, including the popular Sensations range of textured finishes. Among the wide choice of finishes is dual colour, metallic and painted wood structure options.
Slide 2000 is the latest system in Smart's popular series of elegant sliding doors and windows.
An evolution of the original Slide system using continental style construction, Slide 2000 features the signature slim line profiles and minimal sightlines associated with the range, coupled with modern thermal break technology that provides consumers with both enhanced thermal performance and the option of dual colour profiles in a wide choice of colour finishes.
The system is designed for use as sliding patio doors in residential applications for both new build homes and refurbishment projects. Slide 2000 is also suitable for use as horizontal sliding windows for light commercial use such as external serving hatches in restaurants. Sliding windows are also ideal for applications where increased ventilation is required. The window offers a solution where applications, such as schools and hospitals, require an open sash that does not project creating an obstruction.
Slide 2000 uses a selection of mitred outer frames featuring a dual or triple track option allowing the choice of 2, 3 or 4 pane doors. Two pane doors can have either dual sliding sashes or a fixed pane & one sliding opening sash configuration. If fitted with a triple track threshold all three sliding sashes can be configured to slide to one side which gives a 2/3 opening aperture.
The sliding door sets are fitted with a multi-point locking, one piece lock keep that offers enhanced security and ease of fabrication. Smaller horizontal sliding windows can also be fitted with single point locking mechanisms. Fabrication of the outer frame is by method of mechanical cleats with Smart punch tooling providing rapid and accurate fabrication.
Slide 2000 doors will accept 24mm, 28mm or 32mm double or triple glazed sealed units. Glass units are secured using a wrap-around gasket with the sash profiles assembled around the sealed unit.
