Innovative PVC-U lift-and-slide system – highest requirements combined with economical fabrication

The new lift-and-slide system from Schüco combines maximum fabrication and installation efficiency with the highest standards of comfort and design.

The innovative Schüco LivIngSlide lift-and-slide system has been designed on the basis of the Schüco LivIng system dimensions, as the basic depth of the vent frame is 82 mm. This compatibility of the systems offers access to a wide range of accessory profiles, such as glazing beads and other glazing accessories. The uniform system dimensions ensure simple and flexible planning as well as the implementation of attachment options. The significant reduction in the number of parts minimises the work and costs required for storage.

The new lift-and-slide system also offers a range of construction benefits, for example, the steel reinforcements in the vent frame as closed rectangular tubes. This significantly increases the design's stability and allows large units with vent weights up to 400 kg to be constructed.

A particular highlight of Schüco LivIngSlide: the factory-rolled, weldable EPDM glazing gaskets in the vent frame. They ensure soft inner corners even after the welding process and thereby optimum weathertightness in this area. Continuous sealing on several levels between the vent and frame trim also reliably prevents draughts and the build up of condensation. In order to prevent sloping roller carriages, a roller carriage support is used to ensure secure centring and fixing.

Another strength of the new lift-and-slide system is its attractive appearance. The flush design avoids the typical gaps in the fixed field and creates a modern, streamlined appearance which is also easy to clean. The narrow centre joint guarantees maximum light penetration. Schüco LivIngSlide offers a wide variety of design options thanks to its incorporation in the Schüco colour range.

Product family


It is surprising how easy a lift-and-slide door made from aluminium profiles is to move. When closed, the door is perfectly weathertight, providing excellent thermal insulation and noise reduction, while its burglar-resistant properties ensure your personal security.

Lift-and-slide doors must be opened to one side or from the middle. Up to three tracks allow large opening widths and therefore flexible options for creating living spaces that are flooded with light.
