SALAMANDER STRENGTHENS ITS CUSTOMERS IN THE GROWTH MARKET OF LIFT AND SLIDE DOORS WITH PATENTED SECURITY TECHNOLOGY
Salamander presents major enhancements to security technology with fitting-independent RC 2 technology also in surface refinement with its latest lift and slide door, evolutionDrive: HST at fensterbau frontale. The impressive lift and slide presented by Salamander Industrie-Produkte GmbH (www.sip-windows.com), one of the leading European system providers and manufacturers of high-energy-saving uPVC quality window systems, is part of a consistent and process-oriented overall approach.
Based on the quality features of the Brügmann bluEvolution 82 system, the evolutionDrive lift and slide door complements the 82 mm product portfolio. Particular attention was paid to the high-quality functionality and outstanding thermal insulation characteristics. The system solution’s efficient thermal insulation is due to the optimised gasket levels, particularly in the centre region. With the meeting stile with labyrinth gasket system, design-related thermal bridges are reduced. Based on intelligent construction features, the lift and slide door stands out with design innovations that are being presented for the first time at fensterbau frontale 2018.
A highlight of Salamander's exclusive, patented solution, the lift and slide door, is the security technology for tested burglar-resistant elements with a resistance class of up to RC 2. The security mechanism of the lift and slide door functions independently of the fitting and is compatible with all commonly available threshold systems and variants. This is made possible with elements with sliding rails with a height of 3.5 mm and greater, barrier-free thresholds or trolley versions for various total weights. The distinguishing feature: the innovative fitting and threshold-independent solution offered by Salamander makes it unique among system providers in the market. Another benefit of this new security solution is its flexibility, because it is basically also retrofittable for already completed installed door elements with dimensions of up to 6.50 m x 2.50 m.
Salamander has expanded its offering for lift and slide doors in terms of design and now offers an aluminium facing in addition to the high-quality foil coatings which are available in a wide range of colours. The facing construction is distinguished by its high quality and installation-friendly design, because it can be applied quickly and easily onto the element with direct snap-on installation. The facing is presented in an elegant shade of gold, demonstrating that the possibilities are nearly unlimited in terms of colours of the premium coating: Eloxal hues, RAL colours in matte or finely structured powder-coated finished, DB colours and NCS colour requests can all be fulfilled.
An additional optical highlight is the new solution “evoutionDrive: Free” for large-format glass surfaces with a slim frame contour. In order to remain in step with the trend towards higher proportions of glass, Salamander designed a low-profile frame for fixed glazing, which provides a particularly elegant look. The face width of the frame is up to 60% narrower than the standard version.
