Convenient operation and large opening widths are the special features of MACO RAIL-SYSTEMS’ slide-tilt and lift-slide hardware for large-area elements of ceiling height. The sliding of multi-sash structures is also effortless, opening up the interior with an almost level passage surface. The range is completed with very stylish, functional handle solutions.
´Door manufacturers who use MACO L&S hardware opt for a full range all-in-one hand, optimised for maximum utility for the end user and best possible handling during assembly and installation. These also include drive gears, rollers, sealing tracks, threshold, frame cover and support insulation profiles. Depending on the individual element configuration by the door manufacturer, MACO L&S hardware can be used for barrier-free timber casement doors up to 400 kg and PVC casement doors up to 300 kg in weight compliant with RC 2. The new brush technique on the roller is used on the timber and PVC systems.
We will be presenting the newly developed steel hook drive gear with flush-mounted striker plates in combination with slim frame frieze and floor-level fixed glazing at the frontale 2014. Further innovations can be seen in the multi-chamber sealing profile made of PVC, the top flush guide track with or without soft stop and the new centre gasket plate. Moreover, the floor structure inside and out and the barrier-free design is demonstrated by the combination of flat roller track and entrance step.
MACO LS hardware has an excellent reputation throughout the industry with regard to its energy-efficient design and its fulfilment of passive house standards. A guarantee for this is the GFRP threshold, whose low heat transfer coefficient makes thermal separation superfluous.
The MACO-PAS is designed as a pure slide hardware component for wooden and plastic elements with a sash weight of up to 200 kg. For uniform all-round ventilation the sash can be stopped at a parallel width of 5 mm, barely detectable from the outside. Even on the standard version the hardware is equipped with i.S. security roller pins.
Slide & tilt fittings
The system variants SKB-S standard version, SKB-SE with an automatic latching function and SKB-Z with automatic operation for elements up to a sash weight of 200 kg are available as slide-and-tilt system variants. The system variants SKB-S, SKB-SE and SKB-Z are also available as an extremely corrosion-resistant TRICOAT version. In the case of SKB-Z the automatic opening and closing function is controlled centrally via the lever. The covers with their reduced volume and subtle stylish design are available in five different colours.
All three system variants are outstanding through their stop width of 125 and lead-in curve of 53 mm. This makes it possible to accommodate very broad sash profiles. The frame clearance, which is set at 35 mm, reduces the threshold height and provides effortless exit and entry thanks to the level passage surface. The cost-intensive duplication of profile sections can be omitted.
