Lift and Slide Doors
IN CLOSE TOUCH WITH NATURE
BLENDING LIVING QUARTERS WITH THE OUTDOORS
Contemporary architecture brings nature into the living quarters through extensive glass surfaces. Window/Door elements reaching from the ground to the ceiling that can be slid aside completely ensure a flowing transition between inside and outside. Optimum use of indoor space is provided by the application of space-saving opening windows/doors featuring lifting-sliding elements, compared to turning sashes/leafs, and the expansive glazing dimensions flood rooms with light. Large sliding elements are made possible through the specific, especially sturdy structure of lifting-sliding doors by Katzbeck. As these elements can be of considerable weight, a sophisticated technology facilitates the opening and closing of these: the perfect transmission of the opening mechanism enables an ease in opening – and the element glides to one side with a minimum use of force.
Parallel Sliding-Tilting Doors
This door option is slid parallel to the wall, therefore, becoming nearly invisible when open. The sliding technology ensures that no space is taken up inside a room by a door leaf. An additional advantage: parallel sliding-tilting doors can be tilted like windows, thereby allowing a tempered fresh air supply in a (nearly) closed state.
Especially large door cavities can be realized through folding-sliding doors.
This door option consists of several elements that fold together in a space efficient manner at the sides, when opened. The barriers between the inside and the outside disappear – the porch and the yard become a part of the living space.
