Introducing Viiu, a market-leading slimline sliding door

Ultra-slim, minimalistic sliding doors, are the product of the moment, inheriting the crown from the once-inescapable bifold, and the latest model, Viiu, the latest model to hit the market seeks to perfect the elements that have made them so popular.

Viiu (pronounced ‘view’) offers ultra-slim sightlines, secure laminated glass throughout and an ingenious, unobtrusive design. With the outer-frame entirely built into the façade, it gives the appearance of a wall of glass, strong enough to support moving glass sections of up to 750kg, and fixed glass sections up to 1200kg.

For added security, and to maximise the amount of transparent space, Viiu’s unique electric locking mechanism is cleverly concealed in the head of the outer frame. This unique feature allows its jambs to have a symmetrical appearance. A patented adjustable interlock section allows perfect alignment to maximise performance and aesthetics.

A motorised option is also available, and its drive gear is discreetly housed in the unit’s 100m head profile, which itself is hidden behind the building’s façade. Most competitor products, by contrast, require chunky head profiles up to 300mm in height. The motor can be easily accessed from below for maintenance or repair without the need for ugly internal access panels inside the home.

What’s more, Viiu comes with automatic obstruction detection on motorised models, and a choice of wall-mounted or key fob operation.
