Our client wanted to create a balcony style space from their main bedroom in order to enjoy the outside and lovely countryside views.
They chose the Solarlux SL 142 Aluminium Sliding Door because of its slim 40mm sightline giving it the sleek, designer look they were hoping for, but within budget. This is a great choice if you don’t have room for the stacking of bi-folding doors but desire an open, glazed feel to the room.
The exceptionally narrow frames mean that performance is slightly restricted, however, these doors offer a u-value of 1.7 w/m²k making them suitable for most building regulation requirements. Should you be looking for greater thermal efficiency then we have numerous options to lower the u-values, subject to style and design.
This project is still a work in progress but once finished, this lovely addition to their home will be the envy of their neighbours!
Maximum sash/leaf weight: 200 kg
Maximum sash/leaf height 2200 mm with a maximum sash/leaf width of 2000 mm
Glass thickness between 24 mm and 30 mm
