The system scored well overall thanks to its innovative construction, efficient manufacturing and economy.
The heroal S 65 impresses thanks to its innovativeness, efficient manufacturing and economy
The heroal S 65 aluminium sliding door system stands out thanks to the especially simple and efficient production and innovative casement construction. Innovative thermal breaks, specially tailored to the sliding door system, make it possible to use large casements, which simultaneously protect against bending (the Bi-metal effect).
The casement profiles are pre-assembled with a labyrinth, which removes the need for a separate attachment and allow for a very narrow central joint with a view width of just 62 mm. Furthermore, the frame surround reduces the complexity of the system and therefore simplifies the production process even further. This means the heroal S 65 sliding door system is especially suitable as an economically attractive solution for use in upscale residential and commercial construction projects.
