About This Project

This stunning project in rural Leicestershire is typical of the new build and extension projects that we regularly undertake. Our signature XP View bi-folding doors have been installed underneath a striking glazed curtain wall apex to stunning effect.

This design of this elevation has incorporated the maximum amount of glazing possible, which is why structural curtain wall glazing was used, the highest point of which is four metres high. One of the main benefits of our XP View bi-folding doors is that individual panels can be manufactured wider and taller than other systems on the market. All three sets on this project boast huge panels as all the doors are all 2.5 metres tall, and all are very wide. The three panel door is almost 3.4 metres wide, the four panel bi-folding door is 4.7 metres wide, and the huge six panel bi-folding doors is 6.3 metres wide, meaning all of the bi-folding door sets contain individual folding door panels which are well over one metre wide and extremely tall.

This project has been expertly measured and installed, and finished off perfectly with bespoke aluminium pressings. As the elevation is predominantly glass commercial quality glazing has been used throughout. Planitherm 4 Seasons is ideal for this type of installation, it boasts a neutral appearance but still contains a solar reflective coating which greatly reduces solar heat gain. It also has superb thermal properties with a U value of 1.0 so in short it keeps the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. For more information about 4 Seasons glass click here. We offer bespoke curtain walling for low rise residential applications which is ideal huge glass elevations such as this. Curtain walling is become increasingly popular within residential developments so look out for similar projects which will appear on our website soon. For more information on our curtain walling click here.

The bi-folding doors in this project completely open up the rear of the home our onto the external patio area, bi-folds are ideal for full elevations such as this or as a simple feature within a kitchen or dining room, for more information on our bi-folding doors click here.

Our bi-folding doors are all bespoke and can be manufactured from a width as narrow as 1.5 metres. To give you a quote all we need are a rough width and height and we will advise you from there, so contact us today for an indicative starting quote or for a brochure or more information.
