Unparalleled beauty and elegance form the basis of the Avino S-Timber sliding door. The timber sliding door offers the slimmest sightlines with just 5cm of frame around the wooden sliding door leaf.
The timber slider can be integrated into a frameless glass façade, a matching framed glass elevation as well as bi-parting options. Using such a slim timber profile allows for the glass to be the focal point of the elevation with a wide range of timber choices for the interior framing.
Symmetry is at the heart of the S-Timber range and the 5cm minimal profile is uniform around all edges of the sliding door leaf. The material is the focal point of the design, with a seamless interior and exterior frame finish to combine durability and the beauty of natural design to any type of design led project.
Locking is fully integrated into the minimal timber frame with a slim lever handle providing effortless security to the opening. Further levels of security can be integrated into the timber sliding door thanks to the MVS which brings closure sensors into the profiles which can then be integrated into the building’s security system.
This is not a lift and slide door. The Avino S-Timber Sliding Door is a sliding door system, set on high-quality stainless-steel rails and wheels. The simple sliding action is smooth, allowing the timber sliding doors to glide open at a touch.
Flush thresholds are essential to modern living and the Avino S-Timber Sliding Door matches that desire perfectly. The internal and external floor finishes flow freely across the base frame of the wooden sliding door. No level changes or dips in the floor are visible, allowing the easy movement across the sliding door threshold for all users.
Take functionality further with integrated fly screens or venetian blinds that blend perfectly into the timber framing of the Avino S-Timber sliding door.
