Slide 2000 is the latest innovation in Smart’s popular series of elegant sliding doors and windows. An evolution of the original Slide system using continental style construction, Slide 2000 features the signature slim line profiles and minimal sightlines associated with the range, coupled with modern thermal break technology that provides consumers with both enhanced thermal performance and the option of dual colour profiles in a wide choice of colour finishes. The system is designed for use as sliding patio doors in residential applications for both new build homes and refurbishment projects. Slide 2000 is also suitable for use as horizontal sliding windows for light commercial use such as external serving hatches in restaurants.
Sliding windows are also ideal for applications where increased ventilation is required. The window offers a solution where applications, such as schools and hospitals, require an open sash that does not project creating an obstruction. Slide 2000 uses a selection of mitred outer frames featuring a dual or triple track option allowing the choice of 2, 3 or 4 panes doors. Two pane doors can have either dual sliding sashes or a fixed pane & one sliding opening sash configuration. If fitted with a triple track threshold all three sliding sashes can be configured to slide to one side which gives a 2⁄3 opening aperture.
The sliding door sets are fitted with a multi-point locking, one piece lock keep that offers enhanced security and ease of fabrication. Smaller horizontal sliding windows can also be fitted with single point locking mechanisms. Fabrication of the outer frame is by method of mechanical cleats with Smart punch tooling providing rapid and accurate fabrication.
Slide 2000 doors will accept 24mm, 28mm or 32mm double or triple glazed sealed units. Glass units are secured using a wrap-around gasket with the sash profiles assembled around the sealed unit.
