» Worlds slimmest timber frames
The Carminati Skyline Lift and Slide doors allow specifiers, designers and architects to integrate elegant timber framing into their designs. These doors have a unique 37mm vertical frame, providing the slimmest timber framing available on the market. With a choice of Fir or Oak timber profiles, the structure is laminated for impressive strength, beauty and performance.
These doors can be specified into large sizes of up to 12m2 per sliding pane. Combining the ultra slim frame with large glazed panels allows homeowners to open up their space providing perfect light ingress and no obstruction to views.
» Unique patented base track
The base track on these slim framed timber doors has been designed to be flush for a seamless transition between inside and outside. With a unique sliding track cover, this system is unlike any of our other sliding door systems. The track cover covers each sliding track within the floor as the doors are opened.
This detailing creates a completely flush internal to external base detail with no track indents. Click here to find out more about this patented base track.
» Bespoke finishes
These lift and slide doors are available in either Oak or Pine with an array of stains available to create your desired appearance. You can view these frame finishes in person at the Courtyard Showroom in Amersham, Buckinghamshire.
Using ultra slim timber frames gives you the popular minimal sightline design with a natural warm frame. As timber is a natural insulator you are also provided with naturally high levels of thermal insulation with triple glazing available to improve this further.
Although the performance may be ideal for your project, the timber finish may not be something you desire. External aluminium pressings are available, covering the slim timber framing profiles which can then be powder coated any RAL colour. This finish is perfect for homes in a marine environment or those where the external face of the timber would be hard to reach for maintenance.
» Large sizes
These Lift and Slide Doors are completely bespoke, allowing you to create something to your exact requirements. We do recommend a certain height, the size of the panel and maximum panel weight. However, larger doors are available on request.
We recommended a maximum height of 4m with a maximum of 12m2 per panel. The recommended panel weight is 1000kg and automation is always required on doors over 600kg so keep this in mind.
» Other unique qualities
The door handle can play a very big part in your door design and Carminati has taken this into consideration. The trust lever used on this system is made from stainless steel with the choice of finishes including bronzed. These door handles have been designed to sit within the timber framing with integrated magnets, allowing you to slot the handle into the door frame itself when the door is closed.
This unique feature continues the contemporary and minimal design of the lift and slide doors that is desired by many homeowners.
» Incredible performance
When comparing different systems one of the most important things to consider is the performance of your windows and doors, especially thermal performance.
This sliding door system has been fully tested for weather resistance and thermal efficiency. Laminated timber profiles provide extremely high Uf values in comparison to other systems and framing materials. The thermal insulation from both double and triple glazed units have Uf values as little as 1.2 W/m2K.
