Commercial systems specialist Smart Architectural Aluminium launched the new Visoglide Plus sliding door at this year’s Ecobuild exhibition. An extension to the company’s proven Visoglide range, the new Visoglide Plus delivers the same combination of contemporary styling and robust performance, with the additional benefit of superior thermal performance.

With slim sight lines and exceptional thermal performance, this new door has been designed specifically for large commercial and high-end residential projects. The door is available in a range of sizes, within design limitations, of up to 2.6 metres by 7 metres and with the option of auto-slide gearing, provides the perfect solution for applications where large opening apertures are required – in applications such as car showrooms, retail outlets, pavement cafes and bars. The flexibility and versatility of Visoglide Plus is further enhanced with the option of a triple-track format, with three sliding panes allowing an opening aperture of up to 75%.

Commenting on the product launch, Smart’s Managing Director, Eddie Robinson said: “Combining the benefits of a large picture window which allows light to flood in to an internal space, with an easy-opening operation, Visoglide Plus is a high quality, highly versatile system which is a great addition to our range.”

The Visoglide Plus profiles have been designed to provide both improved strength and weather resistance, with all the main sections featuring an extended Polyamide thermal break, which allows the system to achieve a U Value of 1.6 W/m²K when installed with a suitable sealed unit. The multipoint locking doors are available in both single and dual colour options, with a wide choice of standard and non-standard finishes – including Smart’s unique Sensations range of textured colours.
