Contemporary architecture is characterised by large glass surfaces for a maximum of natural lighting as well as clear lines. The development of the MINI lift-and-slide door was carried out with the aim of creating a product that can be realised in wood and, featuring the same profile dimensions, in the combination of wood and metal. It impresses with a design that is reduced to the essentials and a language of form that is uniform to the last detail. The doors clear appearance is based on a sophisticated casement frame with a visible profile width of 51 mm. The slim appearance of this door is enhanced even further by the recessed rosette handle and stainless steel doorstops. Based on an innovative concept, the fixed glazing is integrated directly into the specially developed ground sill. While finely crafted precision tracks further underline the elegance and quality of this lift-and-slide door. In everyday use, the door also convinces with its advanced functionality. A single gentle movement suffices to open and close the door easily and comfortably. The large selection of high-quality wood, materials and colours ensures integration into most diverse architectural styles, while also giving a user-friendly choice of customisation. With its clear and slender elegance, the MINI lift-and-slide door seamlessly blends into modern interiors and conveys a high degree of understatement.
