So, you’re in the middle of designing a beautiful, cutting edge home and you’re looking for the perfect door to complete the project. With so much choice on offer, what style of glazing will best suit the home?
Over recent years, the trend for widespan glazing has taken centre stage. The requirement for uninterrupted views has certainly heightened thanks to the popularity of aluminium bifold doors. However, there is a brand-new choice on the market for architects that want something more impressive than bifold doors. Infinium minimal frame sliding doors are the luxurious choice for widespan glazing, that take your building designs to the next level.
Infinium minimal frame sliding doors are rapidly inspiring more and more design choices, as they help homeowners to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living, creating a new sense of ‘fresh air living’ that invites the outside in.
Infinium: the ultimate design to frame a view
Infinium minimal frame sliding doors are the epitome of all things sleek and modern when it comes to widespan glazing. They create space and light within properties by losing frames and gaining full access to natural daylight, thus creating a bright, warm home that extends effortlessly to the outdoors.
Create dramatic glass walls
Today, there is an even bigger focus on the importance of natural daylight in buildings, and Infinium glazing designs cater to this perfectly. Seamlessly integrating floor-to-ceiling glazing that floods living spaces with daylight, transforming the building from one that not only looks great, but makes residents feel great too.
With sash panels available up to 3 metres wide and 3.5 metres high, Infinium minimal frame sliding doors are designed for framing a view. Incredibly slim 21mm interlock sightlines help to maximise on glazing, to achieve the glass wall effect.
Choose from fixed panes that offer truly widespan glazing, or a two-track threshold that can hold up to four sashes for the ultimate design flexibility. Double or triple glazed units are available to not only provide great thermal performance, but help with acoustics too, minimising unwanted noise.
Choose contemporary aesthetics
Whilst frames might be minimal, they still have a huge design impact. That’s why they are available in a full range of singe or dual colour finishes, with beautiful handles to complete the sleek, minimalist aesthetic and a fully concealed aluminium outer frame and sash.
Remarkable engineering has been used for Infinium, to ensure both function and beauty are seamlessly combined.
Bespoke aluminium rollers are designed to guarantee that even the heaviest sash needs only the slightest touch to operate, and an automated motorised system is available for an added design touch.
Double thermal breaks are used for the highest levels of comfort, improving insulation and keeping warmth within the building. The system therefore achieves U-Values as low as 1.0 W/m2K and is tested for water tightness up to 450 Pa and windload up to 1800 Pa.
