AA®3572 Lift/ Slide Door


The Kawneer AA®3572 Lift/ Slide Door has been developed as a solution for projects that demand the highest levels of thermal and weathering performance. The thermally insulated system delivers optimum levels of quality and performance, with the lift/ slide technology providing effortless operation, and enabling maximum panel sizes up to 3 x 3 m and maximum weights up to 400 kg. Robust profiles with high insulation values enable large areas of glass and freedom in design, even for large spans. The option of slim meeting stiles allow the system to remain unobtrusive and, as a sliding system, it is an ideal space-saving solution where safety is a consideration and projecting swing doors are undesirable. The double EPDM gasket with continuous rebate provides exceptional weathering performance and high levels of sound reduction.

Features/ benefits:

  • Highly insulated profiles with U-values as low as 1.8 W/m²K for frame/ vent combinations – U-values as low as 0.8 W/m²K at the maximum panel size (using 0.6 W/m²K triple glazing and Swisspacer V bar).
  • Panel sizes up to 3 x 3 m can achieve large, uninterrupted areas of glazing.
  • Panel weights up to 400 kg – can easily accommodate triple and acoustic glazing up to 56 mm.
  • Two- and three-track options – arrangements with up to six panels.
  • In-line sliding operation for safe operation with no interference with internal finishes.
  • Stainless steel rollers offer smooth and effortless operation.
  • Low profile thresholds giving continuity between internal and external spaces.
  • Suites with the AA®720 Window Series and AA®100/ AA®110 Curtain Walling Systems with total design flexibility, offering total project solutions.
