Triple Glazed Sliding Doors - minimal windows 4+
minimal windows® 4+ oversized triple glazed sliding door
The minimal windows® 4+ triple glazed sliding door has the same minimal detailing, slim framing and impressive innovations as minimal windows® in a larger, taller and more thermally efficient sliding glass door.
Triple glazing within the slim aluminium frame allows a thermal performance of as little as 0.8W/m2K in oversized sliding glass doors up to 12m2 per sliding panel.
Maintaining a slim aluminium frame the 4+ triple glazed sliding door maintains a frameless surrounding finish with a flush floor finish across the base track from inside to out.
The vertical profile where the sliding panels meet is a minimal 26mm across creating an impressive floor to ceiling glass appearance.
Robust stainless steel rails and double stainless steel wheel carriages carry these impressively large, triple glazed, sliding glass doors with ease, creating a smooth sliding action even at the sliding doors maximum height of 4.5m tall.
The stabilising neoprene base, hidden below finished floor finishes, creates a solid stable base for these large sliding glass doors to sit on, enabling smooth sliding action from installation onwards.
Integrated two-point locking within the slim 26mm framing is handy and easy to use for an accessible sliding glass door. Automation can be neatly integrated within the head track for automatic sliding glass doors if required.
With this system you can create large sliding doors of up to 4.5m high and 12m² or each sliding glass pane. Each pane can weigh an impressive 1,000kg, however if the sliding panes exceed 500kg per panel then it is highly recommended that the system is automated.
Locking and Ventilation
The minimal windows 4+ operates with a standard 2-point thrust lever locking handle for secure internal locking. The locking mechanism is fully encased within the 26mm vertical frame and locks into precast locking positions within the ceiling and floor.
