Maximum appeal and design from new AluK slim sliding door

AluK previewed a new slim sliding door at the FIT Show with all the minimalist styling which discerning homeowners now demand and a simple single glass bonding operation to make it appeal directly to fabricators.

On the stand, AluK announced that the Luminia S119LM will sit between its Optio BSC94 and Luminia SC156 sliding doors, giving customers a cost effective new option for all those applications where slim sightlines are the primary consideration.

The new door measures just 20mm at the interlock, has a concealed outerframe and can go up to 3500mm in height, so it matches the aesthetics and performance of many of the higher end sliders on the market but crucially comes at a more competitive price.

AluK told visitors to FIT that the Luminia S119LM is ideal for both new build and renovation projects, maximising light into homes and providing almost unrestricted views. 

It ticks all the boxes for retail buyers, architects and self builders, with the option of motorised or manual operation and single, double or triple track configuration. In single track pocket mode, the sashes can even be concealed completely within the building envelope to truly bring the outside in.

In terms of performance, the SL119LM achieves an impressive U-Value of 1.3 W/m2K and can accommodate sashes up to 320kg in with maximum glass thickness of 35.5mm.

Speaking at FIT, AluK’s Managing Director Russell Yates explained that the Luminia S119LM will be quick and easy to manufacture with a mitre cut outerframe and a square cut glass single bonded sash. He added: “With demand for sliding doors continuing to rise, this is an ideal addition to our customers’ ranges. It fills a gap in the market and means that customers buying from AluK don’t need to go anywhere else.”

The new door will be available later this Summer from AluK’s Luminia Select Partner Network.
