DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors for a modern extension in Cheam, Surrey

Blending old with new to create something truly unique is one of the joys associated with renovation projects. So we were delighted to recently advise a client who was looking for a minimalist glazing system that would enhance the appearance of their traditional property.

Matching the perfect product to the clients needs

When this particular client came to visit us at the Grand Designs exhibition, they were keen to understand the value a system like DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors could add to their lives.

As soon as they saw the electric locking system they made up their minds to invest. The client also loved that the frame could be ‘sunk’ below floor level, creating a sleek aesthetic and uninterrupted views.

Friendly guidance from our expert team

During this initial meeting, we were also able to advise on bespoke features that cemented the clients passion to invest. In this case, the steel in the corner of the extension held up the extension and needed to be covered with something tasteful.

A standard approach is to go for a rendered column to match the rest of the extension. As an alternative we proposed a more seamless option – a colour matched, custom aluminium pressing made to cover the corner steel which would look like part of the door. The client was delighted by our creativity and decided to move forward with the project.

Finding harmony with contrasting styles

The client was super-keen to keep with a modern aesthetic for the extension to create contrast with the traditional features of the property – which is exactly what they were able to achieve.

They’re especially pleased with how the RAL7021 matt black colour of the extension elevates the outward appearance of the property. The sleekDWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors add a striking touch, while the smooth-glide doors make it oh-so simple to bring the outdoors into harmony with the indoor area.

Importantly with the DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors, the clients are able to enjoy both the excellent thermal values as well as huge pane sizes. These features combined with high-security electrically operated locking makes the DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding doors unrivalled both in terms of security and aesthetic appearance.

The clients came away extremely pleased – and really felt this investment was worth it. Essentially, the addition of DWL Slimline – 20 Sliding door allows them to really make the most of time spent at home – and we couldn’t be happier with the luxurious final result.
