Luxury Sliding Glass Doors

The main feature of the luxury sliding glass doors is the frameless aesthetic that can be achieved through the completely flush base (which boasts a wheel track depth of 12-13mm) and the ability to hide the outer frames within the wall finishes, leaving only the slim horizontal sightlines visible. Each pane can weigh up to 500kg for manually opening sliding doors however, anything greater than this will need to be automated which can also be integrated into a home automation system (as shown above). With the various choices of frame finishes, RAL colours and glass options, (including but not limited to; heated glass or privacy glass) these luxury sliding glass doors have the flexibility to meet the design requirements resulting in them being highly desirable.

Vitra Pivot

Pivoting windows are ideal for rear garden extensions, balcony doors or side entry to a building and have been developed over time, mixing the slim sightlines of our minimally framed sliding glass doors into a full height window that can pivot open when required. The stainless steel pivoting points are hidden to allow the large glass window to move effortlessly within the aluminium frame.

Slim Framed Sliding Windows & Guillotine Windows

The Slim Framed Sliding Windows and Guillotine Windows are the go-to for architects and designers looking to create the slimmest framed windows for their contemporary design projects.  With these windows designed to open horizontally (Slim Framed Sliding Windows) or vertically (Guillotine Windows) there are no restrictions on the size of the aluminium framed windows as there would be for windows that swing outwards or inwards, allowing more flexibility of the design. Full height windows are also possible with these products by integrating a frameless balustrade into the window opening to create a modern Juliet Balcony with slim frames.
