Schuco aluminium sliding doors and windows into this property in Mitcham, Surrey.

Schuco aluminium sliding doors. We supply and install both sliding and lift and slide ASS50 and ASS70 HI. And they can sometimes be very big doors…

As frequent Schuco installers, we often install very large sliding doors. This project was no different. At roughly 10 metres, it is not the biggest we have done (the biggest we have done is 12 metres), but it is still a very big door nonetheless!

Originally, it was a very ordinary-looking property in Surrey, the couple were going to transform it with a huge flat roof extension on the rear and completely gut the inside, knocking through walls and creating totally new rooms. It is now unrecognisable compared to how it was before.

After visiting the famous Grand Designs show, these customers knew what they wanted, which made things easier for us. They knew Schuco was a more expensive aluminium system for windows and doors but also knew that for the size aperture they had, Schuco aluminium sliding doors were their only option. So, we quoted the customers a few options and they very soon saw the solution that would suit their budget. The large size of the door opening meant that one of our Schuco aluminium sliding doors was their only option. They then just had to decide between Smart or Schuco windows .

In the end, they would go with Smart Alitherm 300 casement windows,Smart Alitherm Plus single doors and Schuco aluminium sliding doors, choosing the ASS70 HI model for the better thermal values. This combination of products allowed them to control their budget and focus their spend elsewhere on the costly extension.

All of the windows and doors are RAL 7016 matt anthracite grey slim frame aluminium and double glazed.

We’re thrilled with the end result, as are the customers. Always great to see the finished photos, which the customer kindly sent through once all the rendering was done.
