Having previously supplied and installed grey aluminium bifold doors into the studio at the end of the garden, there was no question as to who they would be going with for the grey aluminium windows and doors to match those in their studio/bar room. This studio/bar installation we previously carried out can be read about here.
For a fairly large residential project, the quoting of the aluminium windows and doors and ordering process on this installation was very simple and easy. Normally, there are a few revisions of the architects’ drawings, which require our estimator David to requote 2, 3 or even 4 times over before the final spec and quote is agreed upon. In this case, everything was ordered based on the first drawings, which had been done spot on the first time around.
The two sets of aluminium bi-folding doors we supplied and installed were in our Platinum Grey colour from the Smart Sensations range. The full Smart colour range can be found here. The rest of the spec would remain the same too. In the grey aluminium windows and doors, we used our standard double glazed units with our Saint Gobain Planitherm Total plus glass. These also feature argon-filled sealed units and black Swiss spacer bars, which are also known as warm edge spacer bars.
All units that required it featured toughened safety glass in accordance with building regulations. This states, that all units in doors and any units 800mm or closer to floor level and any units 300mm or closer to a door must have toughened safety glass installed. A clear and useful explanation of this toughened safety glass rule can be found here on Pilkington’s website. Obviously all of the aluminium windows and doors we install comply with all of these regulations.
Getting back to this aluminium windows and doors project, which more specifically features our Smart Alitherm 300 casement windows with a square bead, along with Smart Alitherm Plus single doors, finished off with our Smart Visofold 1000 bifold doors to match those in the studio/bar. Have a look at the before and after photos below to see the full project.
