aluminium Front Door – Pirnar Premium – Panel 1970, Basingstoke

Location: Thatcham

This stunning dual colour aluminium front door with sidelights oozes personality and has transformed the entrance to this beautiful Mock Tudor house in Basingstoke.

The property was built in 1986 and is nestled within outstanding beauty on the highly prestigious Cliddesden Court development.

The Basingstoke homeowners have sympathetically and carefully renovated and extended their family home into a contemporary property whilst keeping with the heritage assets of the Tudor style property.

As part of this home renovation project, we provided a state of the art glazing solution of energy performance Evolution timber look windows, Solarlux Bifold doors and aluminium fixed windows throughout the house.

The homeowner’s design brief for their home renovation project was to create rooms filled with natural light and create open living spaces that blend the inside with the outside within their Basingstoke property.

The Basingstoke homeowners chose Thames Valley Windows because our innovative range of glazing products would enhance the property era while providing the best aesthetic appearance.

Our designer Joe worked closely with the architects and homeowners to provide a personal service helping with product advice to ensure all requirements, specifications, performance, was upheld to their budget.

All three phases of the glazing were scheduled to suit the renovation project, with installations coordinated with the other trades to ensure that the property was sealed and weatherproof.

In addition to installing this stunning Pirnar aluminium front door, we also designed and installed a range of high-performance Evolution timber look windows, Gable end window for loft conversion, Solarlux aluminium bifold doors and powder-coated aluminium fixed windows.

The final phase of our installation was the anthracite grey and jet black Pirnar aluminium front door and matching frame that provides a minimalist look and a strong contrast to the exterior and is the finishing touch to this renovation project.

The eye-catching sail style glazing within the door and the two side panels are sandblasted with four etched horizontal lines that coordinate with the groove design in the aluminium front door.

The dual metallic tones in the front door look beautiful and make a bold statement and inviting entrance to their renovated family home.

The stylish insulated triple glazed sidelights allow plenty of natural light to enter the hallway whilst offering exceptional thermal performance and acoustic insulation with a U value of 0.99 W/m2K.

While the discreet and elegant hi-tech biometric fingerprint scanner offers the homeowners convenience and easy access without the need for keys or codes and combined with a multi-point lock, it provides unsurpassed security which ensures the Basingstoke property is highly secure.

The Pirnar premium entrance door has adjustable hinges and is hinged to the right that opens inwards, ensuring maximum functionality for a prestigious entrance.

The stainless steel door furniture, including a high quality 1500mm angular bar handle for the exterior and a matching lever handle for the interior with a modern matching base trim, adds protection and stylish touch to this luxurious front door.

The superb thermal performance and high-security features of the Pirnar aluminium front doors were the deciding factors that determine the homeowner’s decision.

The Basingstoke homeowners are delighted with their Pirnar premium aluminium front door and advised:

Having committed to all the glazing, we finally decided to install a Pirnar front door and surround. This was certainly not the most’ cost effective’ option, but the build quality and aesthetic of the door once designed was not something we could pass over for a less expensive design, so we took the plunge and had it installed. The door feels extremely secure, and the fingerprint entry scanner means we can’t get accidentally locked out ever again! There are a lot of customisable options with these doors, and I lost count of the number of questions I asked and emailed through – but they were all answered without a fuss.

We were delighted to be part of this renovation project; working alongside both the architect and builders, we help to transform a traditional detached Mock Tudor property into a luxurious contemporary family home. A truly spectacular renovated home for the family to enjoy and love all year round.

Joe’s recommended architectural glazing solution has exceeded the Basingstoke homeowners vision and has ticked all the boxes for the current interior trends for a home filled with natural light.
