Contrary to popular belief, even those living above ground within a high-rise apartment can sometimes struggle to make the best use of natural light. This was recently the case for one of DWL’s recent customers in Southampton, but after some thorough discussion we both agreed that a new set of DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding door would be ideal, letting light in but tying in seamlessly with the apartment’s inherently modern aesthetic style.
Engineered using a combination of quality craftsmanship and true forward-thinking design, the aluminium set of the DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors feature exceedingly low sightlines of only 20mm. Recessed tracks allow each panel to be moved without the need for vast amounts of force, instead letting this homeowner enjoy their open-air decking area at just a moment’s notice.
Complete with electronic locking for the very best in secure technology, these DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors place high emphasis on a large glass surface area thanks to the strength of aluminium and some ingenious frameless glass corners. Fitted almost flush next to the external wooden panel style on the outside of the apartment, they’re a perfect example of neatly blending the old with the new.
It isn’t just aesthetically that the apartment’s new DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors will amaze however, as each aluminium unit delivers impressive heat retention qualities too. No longer will the homeowner need to worry about overspending on bills or wasting unnecessary energy, thanks to their multi-chambered internal frames and airtight glazing. This keeps anyone who chooses to have them installed cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter months, as will be the case here.
The particular apartment our team were required to work in was a penthouse apartment in Southampton of a very minimalist design. This made moving around to conduct the main installation much more efficient and swift, though our fitters took extra special care not to cause too much disturbance to create an end result that was just as subtle, but still very effective.
Needless to say, following the installation of the sleek and contemporary DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors both the homeowner and our team were impressed with the impact such a discreet product could have. The apartment would now always be able to show off its internal furniture layout from the outside, as well as enjoy lashing of natural light and wide open views from within.
