Scandinavian AS - Timber Sliding Doors
The Scandinavian AS lift & slide door is everything you expect from a high quality and perfectly engineered sliding door system. Suitable for domestic and commercial application it is commonly used to give wide access to gardens, terraces, balconies and decks, allowing maximum light and panoramic views whilst keeping the weather and intruders out. Due to its versatility the Scandinavian AS system has been used in schools, hospitals, care homes, visitor’s centres, garden rooms and luxury houses amongst many other building types.
The lift & slide method of operation allows extra large sliding panels of up 300kg to be opened effortlessly. This superb engineering utilises the weight of the sliding panel to provide feather light opening and to ensure a secure and weather tight seal when closed. With this mechanism the sliding panel can also be lowered at any point on its track to avoid unwanted movement, all done by simply turning the handle 180 degrees. Designed with severe weather in mind the door guarantees perfect functionality through the harshest of winters – ice and snow does not damage the rails or prevent operation.

The Scandinavian AS lift & slide door comes factory finished and glazed as standard. Prior to the finishing stage each section of timber is individually dip treated with water based preservatives. A full range of wood stains and RAL finishes (over 200 colours) or even dual colour can be taken advantage of in order to truly personalise your bespoke sliding system.
In addition you can specify whether a matt, semi gloss or full gloss finish is required. Alternatively if a stain finish is required you can choose from our Teknos range of stains. Door finish comes as standard in satin anodised aluminium (SAA). Please ask about other options. Download the finishes page for more information.
The Scandinavian AS range is manufactured from slow grown Nordic pine as standard, although other timbers are available by special request. Engineered timber profiles used as standard for greater strength and durability. Measuring 184mm from front to back and a very reasonable 97mm central stacking profile to give very slim sightlines on elevation. The system is available with double or triple glazing.
Supplied as standard with GU aluminium threshold perfect for creating a low threshold detail or wheel chair friendly environment. Other options available.
The Scandinavian AS lift & slide door provides great security as standard, many of the features which can not be seen from the inside or outside. When the door is closed and the handle is operated the sliding sash automatically drops onto 4 locking pins around the frame and cleverly utilises its own weight as an added advantage. With this comes a cylinder lock internally which when engaged prevents the handle from being operated, making it impossible to slide the sash.
Many people opt for no handle or cylinder externally and only request a finger plate to allow easy operation of the sliding sash from outside. This takes away any direct means of attempting to gain access through the sliding door and acts as a major deterrent. Glass is beaded internally for added security.
Often chosen for its excellent weather tight seal and air tightness the Scandinavian sliding door is renowned for keeping the weather out. Combining the same features it uses to secure the door when locked the sliding panel engages with 4 locking pins around the frame, compressing the double weather seals for guaranteed weather tightness.
Available with double or triple glazed high performance glazing typically providing centre pane values between 0.6 and 1.1. All glazing should be carried out in accordance with BS6262. As standard products are supplied factory glazed and beaded internally
