Scandinavian AS2 & AS3

Timber - Scandinavian AS2 & AS3 Lift & Slide Door

Our AS2 (double glazed) and AS3 (triple glazed) Lift & Slide doors offer everything you would expect from a "Scandinavian" sliding door. Engineered timber is used for greater strength, stability and longevity together with the renown lift and slide mechanism to allow individual panels of up to 300kg and ensure effortless, smooth sliding. The unique design and clever engineering allows the system to be glazed with units of up to 40mm creating a double and triple glazed system with equal appearance. The Scandinavian AS2 and AS3 are suitable for both residential and commercial application and also commonly used in schools and public buildings due to its quality, versatility and security.

A good U-Value does not mean a door keeps out the wind and the rain. Make sure you check out a doors weather test results before you buy.

High Security

  • High security as standard.
  • Running gear and locking mechanisms are fully concealed.

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.
