Two new products enhance Schueco’s sliding door offering

Date: 18 August 2015
New from leading sustainable building envelope specialist, Schueco UK, are two products, SmartClose and SmartStop, that underline Schueco’s commitment to innovation, operational safety and engineering excellence.

Developed for use with Schueco’s range of sliding door systems, both products make the sliding vent easier to operate.

SmartClose makes the closing action effortless by converting the energy generated by the initial pull on the sliding vent into momentum that carries the vent smoothly along the length of its track until its final soft insertion into the frame. The action is similar to the soft-closing doors and drawers found in many contemporary kitchens.

In addition, Schueco SmartClose makes closing the door quieter and safer and also obviates the possibility of damage to the frame by the vent being slammed shut. Once in position, SmartClose is unobtrusive, being mounted discreetly on the top profile of the sliding vent.

Schueco SmartStop employs a controlled soft braking action that allows the vent to be drawn smoothly along its track but brings it to a stop prior to closing, when it can be locked in the normal way. This makes the door safer and more user-friendly. SmartStop, which like SmartClose is mounted on the upper profile of the door, is suitable for vents weighing up to 400 kg.

Both products are simple to install and easy to adjust to suit a particular installation. They are primarily designed for Schueco ASS 50 and ASS 70.HI premium segment systems.
