Vitrocsa Minimal glazed sliding doors and sliding windows can be up to 18m2 (up to 6 metres high), sizes that cannot be achieved with most other sliding window or door systems like skyframe or keller. Importantly, even at this size the windows slide smoothly and with ease. This is achieved by using unique patented stainless steel bearings installed in the floor tracks rather than in the window pane, ensuring the window’s stability, smooth motion and easy maintenance.
Vitrocsa Minimal UK’s high performing sliding systems can be specified with double or triple glazed units making it one of the highest performing products on the market, meeting all European performance standards.
The sliding doors and sliding windows can be specified with corner, side or centre openings, or sliding into a pocket. Vitrocsa Minimal UK can also supply curved sliding doors and curved sliding windows.
The minimal frame is only 58mm deep (same profile is used at head, jamb and sill) making it possible to install these windows in projects where the floor depth is restricted, unlike other systems. The track also acts as the drain.
The floor finishes site flush with the frame creating a level access compliant with Part M.
The Vitrocsa TH+ range allows for sliding window surfaces of up to 18 m² with 32 or 44 mm double or triple glazing. The excellent insulating properties of the profiles in association with the glass enables current standards to be met in terms of low energy consumption.
