Schüco is launching its new AS FD bi-fold door, delivering its slimmest frames yet, larger pane sizes and improved performance over its predecessor, the ASS 70 FD. The AS FD 75 launched earlier this month and the AS FD 90.HI will be available from September.
Responding to market demand for greater transparency, Schüco has built on its second-to-none engineering to develop the ultimate bi-fold door.
Seamlessly connecting the outside with the inside in the most stylish and functional way, the new bi-fold door is available with very large pane sizes of up to 3.5m high x 1.5m wide. This means doors can be taller with fewer separate panes per opening, which combined with sightlines of only 90mm offers greater views with minimal obstruction.
Increased airtightness enables the AS FD 75/90.HI to achieve U-values as low as 1.0, which is the lowest in the company’s bi-fold door range. This could mean the crucial difference when working towards a warm, energy-efficient building that also allows the luxury of ample glass.
Come September 2022, Schüco will be rolling out the new bi-fold doors in in more opening configurations with additional flush, barrier free threshold options, providing even greater design flexibility.
Meanwhile, no compromises have been made in terms of security either, ensuring the utmost security while enabling an overall more streamlined look with fewer hinges and the option of a new 3-point handle operated lock. The new bi-fold door is tested to burglar resistance PAS24/RC2 and is also covered by Secured by Design, the official police security initiative of which Schüco UK is a member.
