At Clear View, we believe that aluminium doors and windows can make a huge difference to both your home and our lifestyle. This theory couldn’t have been proved stronger at a home in Gloucester during the summer as the whole rear of the property underwent an extension, with the aluminium doors and windows brought it to life.
This was one of the biggest domestic projects Clear View had ever been involved with and there were many different components in the build. There were two sets of AluK small windows and two sets of AluK full length panes of glass. These featured on the sides of the building structure and both used the AluK GB 58BW / 58BD Residential / ST Frame.
On the main rear of the building the lower section featured two sets of 3 pane bi-folding doors again using the AluK system, whilst upstairs, two sets of sliding doors were installed. Both used the following frame arrangements AluK GB BSF70 OUT Frame all around Standard.
The glazing on the bi-folding doors was in the following arrangement: Glazing for bi-folds to be 4mm toughened/ 20mm argon filled cavity/ 4mm toughened low e inner – planitherm or equivalent
The glazing for the sliding doors is in the following arrangement: Glazing for sliders to be 6mm toughened/ 16mm argon filled cavity/ 6mm toughened low e inner – planitherm or equivalent
Both the glazing arrangements will help with energy efficiency and should allow for a warm internal environment in the winter and a cooler environment in the summer.
As with all Clear View products, Our doors and windows come with Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Snap Secure, Kitemarked high security locks as standard. They also come with a 10 year guarantee allowing for total peace of mind.
For complete quality, Aluminium extrusions are extruded using alloy 6063 T6 to BS1474: 1987 and the Polyester powder coating complies with BS6496: 1984.
In total 16 panes of glass were used in this large project and it has completely changed the look of the home. Large amounts of light can now enter the building and the huge amounts of free space make the conservatory look twice as big.
This is just one example where adding aluminium bi-folding or sliding doors, or an aluminium windows, can really transform your buildings.
