Another stunning installation of aluminium sliding patio doors into a new kitchen extension at a detached property in Camberley.
The Thames Valley Window installation team had the delight of returning to a local property in which we had previously installed facias, soffits and guttering. As a small independent double glazing company, customer satisfaction and retention are very important. Our customer advised:
The quality plus the fact that we have dealt with yourselves in the past as you installed our double glazed windows shortly after we moved here about 20 years ago!
When a freshly built extension in Camberley with an aperture of 5748cm x 2175cm it needed new energy-efficient bi-folding or sliding patio doors. The homeowners approached Thames Valley Windows for expert architectural glazing advice and design ideas. On seeing the architects plan, our design team instantly knew the perfect glazing solution. The large expanses of glass in the slim aluminium aïr lift and slide doors with integral blinds would be spectacular for the new kitchen extension transforming a light-filled open plan living area with views that change with the seasons.
Our Camberley homeowners visited our Bracknell double glazing showroom to view the range of aluminium, timber sliding and bi-folding doors and uPVC patio doors we have on display.
After careful planning with our designers, they wanted to maximise the sense of space and visual capability of looking out to their landscape garden, when open and closed.
With the help of our experienced designer Ray, our Camberley homeowners chose aïr 500 LS lift & slide doors in Anthracite grey matt RAL7016 in a four-pane configuration with two centre sliding doors and two fixed panes each with toughened safety glass with a single mono track. The finishing touch is the matching exterior anthracite grey handles.
Their decision not to chose bifold doors and integral blinds were decided for the large glass area and slim sightlines, superb quality, thermally efficient and high security.
aïrs cutting edge doors feature unique aïr lift and slide technology such as stainless steel running gear so that each door panel will slide and glide effortlessly.
Robust stainless steel rollers mean that vast panes of glass that weigh up to 300kg can be easily manoeuvred across any opening using the minimum of effort. No pushing, tugging, or heaving!
Draught-proof and weatherproof with a low U-value of 1.4 and the assurance the door is watertight up to 600pa.
Our customers stated, with less frame, the large glass areas would provide more view of the outside, and the aïr 500ls were the most impressive aluminium lift and slide doors they had seen.
The aïr 500LS door range is perfect for smaller apertures that require the slimmest sightlines possible.
With the aïr aluminium patio sliding door range, seeing is believing! The system now benefits from a new and improved 48mm meeting rail. This glass façade of grandeur can be installed to both traditional and modern properties for uninterrupted views of the outside.
A beautifully thought-out kitchen extension design combined with the great mixture of the traditional and the modern has wholly transformed this Camberley property. This fantastic kitchen extension with aïr 500ls sliding doors has opened up the rear of the property giving a huge amount of extra living space, that is filled with natural light.
They wanted to give their family home a contemporary look, with a distinctive style, but one that’s in-keeping with the rest of the home. Internally, they wanted an open-plan, light-filled kitchen/dining area with a modern, clean-line look. The homeowners also wanted easy access to the outside patio area for entertaining family and friends in the summer months.
Throughout the entire project, Thames Valley Windows took care and attention in ensuring that the project runs smoothly and to timescale, by working with the architects and builder. The homeowners did not want trickle vents fitted as they had chosen alternative Passive ventilation to comply with Building Regulations. The installation took two days and space remained clean and tidy with as little disturbance and interruption the homeowners as possible. Ray, our designer, took care of the order on both occasions, ensuring that the process was swift and without hassle giving the homeowners peace of mind.
To accentuate the contemporary finish, the homeowners opted for a large front door with multi-point locking system from our Pirnar Range which provides a high-end ultra-modern finish. The result is a stylish, modern luxury family home which sits perfectly in the surrounding landscape and provides an unrivalled level of home security.
The Camberley owners are delighted with their new aluminium sliding patio doors quoting” above we had used you before, and the price (with the Exclusive 40% discount promotion for existing customers) certainly was an incentive to go back to you.
