The new folding / sliding door system WICSLIDE 75FD is made for designing the cities of tomorrow. Its characteristic style element is creating a link between the inside and the outside.

Current architectural trends present major challenges in the search for greater dimensions, the desire to increase living space, and the need for greater modularity. With the new folding / sliding door system WICSLIDE 75FD, living and working spaces become open to their environment, both in an elegant and innovative way.

Building users of administrative or residential buildings, shops, cultural and leisure facilities benefit from being closer to nature and from an increased quality of life, especially in urban environments.

Total width of up to 12 metres

With the WICSLIDE 75FD folding / sliding door system, it is possible to construct elements with a total width of more than 12000 mm and a height of more than 3000 mm, using up to 10 leaves and only few different components. The barrier-free doors can be opened both towards the inside and the outside.

Finishes on the WICSLIDE 75FD folding doors are carefully designed for visual harmony in both open and closed positions. When open, all elements are black, the screw heads and the lower rollers are concealed by black caps. When closed, the profiles are flush and their presence is dignified and balanced.

The hinges are integrated into the vertical line of the seal. All hinges and gasket seals are black; the door pull handles are coated in the same colour as the profiles and they are additionally fixed to the hinge. In the case of flat handles in profile colour, specific keys are available since each leaf can be locked separately.

Ease of use and two different visible widths

The new, convincing fitting is convenient to use and characterised by a circumferential gasket seal as well as by actively controllable locking points. All elements can be moved easily. With this fitting, high infill weights are possible, i.e. up to 150 kg with sash widths from 600 mm to 1200 mm and sash heights from 700 mm to 3000 mm.

The WICSLIDE 75FD folding / sliding door is available in two versions: standard (with sight lines of 63 mm) or heavy-duty (with sight lines of 73 mm) for XXL sizes. The door threshold is equipped with brushes or, in the case of higher requirements, with gaskets. Each of the door slide mechanisms is moved by four rolls made of stainless steel.

WICSLIDE 75FD is also based on the well-known WICONA Unisys principle which provides major advantages for fabricators. Multiple use of system components promotes economic solutions and ensures process reliability since it reduces the number of profiles and accessories for different applications. Element assembly therefore is a routine and can be performed smoothly.
