The Schüco AD UP (Aluminium Door Universal Platform) door system is a true all-rounder. It combines the highest quality aesthetics with impressive thermal performance, outstanding watertightness, PAS 24 security and the ability to integrate smart building components. As an adaptable system for both residential and commercial buildings, it provides high performance even in exposed locations.
The AD UP door system offers a range of options for a multitude of applications and is based on two profile widths: the AD UP 75 (75mm) and the AD UP 90 (90mm). Both versions integrate seamlessly with the range of Schüco façade, window and sliding door systems.
AD UP 75 allows for door heights up to 3000mm with a maximum leaf width of 1400mm. It has exceptional watertightness, up to E750, which ensures reliable performance even in a violent storm and on designs with no threshold.
To ensure complete watertightness on a flat entrance, Schüco uses a threshold gasket, combined with hydraulic lowering of the door for a water-resistant seal while the system drainage ensures no water collects within the profile.
For the highest thermal performance, AD UP 90 offers a U-value of 1.0 W/m2K due to its wider profile with additional insulation. Combined with high-performance glazing or an infill panel, this is the ideal door system for zero carbon homes or Passivhaus designs.
The AD UP aluminium profile has five chambers, incorporating a dedicated cable channel to ensure the easy and safe integration of Schüco Smart Home technology, such as the Fingerprint Easy entry system and keyless access controlled via a smartphone. The Schüco AD UP Design Edition also features an illuminated recessed pull-grip.
The versatility of the system is further enhanced by a variety of door infill panels and insulation options, thereby allowing individual requirements in terms of aesthetics and performance to be met.
Specification and installation both benefit from the common system platform as well, which simplifies the design and manufacturing process.
