Extremely easy to use
for space-saving sliding doors
21.04.2021 - New Winkhaus duoPort AS fitting for windows and doors with retract-slide function
Sliding windows and doors have a decisive advantage: They take up hardly any space when opening. This is why large elements are often equipped with this feature. The new retract-slide fitting from Winkhaus therefore requires an opening width of just 6 mm. And it has another advantage: Large and heavy windows and doors are particularly easy to operate.
The operation of a retract-slide element with duoPort AS is simple and intuitive. Misuse is virtually impossible. At the same time, the fitting seals particularly tightly. This makes it suitable not only for sliding doors, but also for sliding windows.
The window or door sash moves about 6 mm further into the interior to open. This is enough to release the seal from the frame and move the sash to its retract-slide position. The smooth-running technology, which is only operated with a single handle, then supports the sliding movement. It is suitable for sash weights of up to 250 kilograms.
Thanks to the gap between the frame and sash, which is about 6 mm wide, a natural air exchange is created in pulled-out position. The technology from duoPort AS thus contributes to heat- and cooling-saving room ventilation.
