We recently installed two sets of high-performance slimline Air 500 lift and slide patio doors to the rear of a detached family home in Bracknell.
The family home is located on a highly desired road in the Wooden Hill area, and the homeowners have been existing customers of Thames Valley Windows since 2000.
As a small independent double-glazing company, customer satisfaction and retention are very important. We were delighted that they decided to return to us for replacement sliding doors as they were no longer energy efficient or secure. They advised:
We have always used TV Windows and are satisfied with the quality of service, so when looking to replace our 25-year-old patio doors, we knew they would provide an excellent service from start to finish.
As the Bracknell homeowners were unsure if they wanted bi-fold or sliding doors, our experienced designer Joe contacted them and arranged a showroom appointment. This allows him to demonstrate the two patio door systems so that they can decide the best option for their home.
After receiving a quote for both the air 500LS lift and slide patio doors and Solarlux SL60 bi-folding doors, and with the help from Joe, the homeowners chose the innovative aïr lift & slide patio doors.
The slim even sightlines and the wide expanse of glass of the lift and slide patio doors were the deciding factors that influenced the Bracknell homeowners.
The Bracknell homeowners choose a traffic white gloss finish internally and externally to be in keeping with the existing windows and aesthetics of the property.
The lift and slide patio doors have been configured with a mono track ensuring the doors slide effortless across the single-track system before stacking at one end or locked in an open position.
Both sets of lift and slide patio doors have been designed with two double glazed panes. For the dining room, they chose a single opening sash on the right side and a left-hand opening sash for the lounge. The finishing touch is the classic satin chrome handles.
Both living spaces now benefit from an abundance of natural light and panoramic views of the garden.
The combination of a soft coat low E glass, argon gas and warm edge spacer bar retain heat within the home. They encourage a more sustainable and ensuring a comfortable living space temperature all year round.
