These systems are intended for the production of sliding doors and windows with thermal insulation that can be built into brick walls, aluminum facades, winter gardens or display cabinets made of elements of the MB-59S or MB-59S Casement systems. Sliding doors, especially those of large dimensions, visually “enlarge” the living space by connecting it to the outside terrace or garden.
The MB-Slide and MB-Slide ST sliding door systems offer great space arrangement possibilities: the maximum dimensions of the sashes are: H: 2600 mm, L: 1800 mm, weight max. 160 kg, there are various variants of development: from 2 to 6 modules. Glass packages up to 26 mm thick can be used in them. These structures also ensure the maintenance of very good technical parameters: plastic thermal breaks provide adequate thermal insulation for aluminum profiles, and sliding gaskets in the form of brushes or TPE thermoplastic elastomer as well as EPDM cover and glass gaskets enable high tightness of the structure.
The structural depth of the leaf sections is 37 mm (except for the horizontal sections in MB-Slide ST), and the frame is 50 mm (2-track rails) and 97 mm (3-track rails) respectively. The identical depth of the basic 2-track frame of the MB-Slide system and the window and door frames of the MB-59S, MB-59S Casement, MB-59S Pivot and MB-59SE systems makes it possible to connect products made of these systems directly. Frames with a depth other than 50 mm can be joined with each other using a special, reinforced intermediate mullion.
The main differences between the MB-Slide and MB-Slide ST systems are: the structure of the wing sections as well as the production and glazing technology. In MB-Slide, the leaf profiles have a 3-chamber structure, they are cut at an angle of 45o and connected with appropriate corners, the corners are then kneaded. The sash frame made in this way is glazed with the help of glazing beads and glazing gaskets. In MB-Slide ST, the leaf profiles have a single-chamber structure, and they are connected by twisting the vertical and horizontal profiles with appropriate screws. Glass assembly takes place here at the stage of joining the wing sections.
Both sliding door systems are largely compatible with other ALUPROF S.A. systems. The adoption of such a constructional assumption allowed the use of many common sections, accessories and technological processes. All components of sliding door systems are made in accordance with applicable norms and standards.
