Blurring the line between living spaces to make for the perfect view
Slimline sliding doors are the product of the moment – inheriting the crown from the once-inescapable bifold – and the latest model to hit the market seeks to perfect the elements that have made them so popular.
viiu (pronounced ‘view’) offers ultra-slim sightlines, secure laminated glass throughout and an ingenious, unobtrusive design. Strong enough to support glass sections of up to 750kg, it’s the only product of its kind to come PAS24-2016 compliant* thanks to its robust interlock section.
For added security, and to maximise the amount of transparent space, viiu’s unique electric locking mechanism is cleverly concealed in the head of the outer frame.
A motorised option is also available – and its drive gear is discreetly housed in the unit’s 100mm head profile, which itself is hidden behind the building’s façade. Most competitor products, by contrast, require chunky head profiles up to 300mm in height. The motor can be easily accessed for maintenance or repair without the need for ugly access panels inside the home.
What’s more, viiu comes with automatic obstruction detection, and a choice of wall-mounted or key fob operation.
*PAS24-2016 accreditation is available as an operational extra.
