Focus on energy efficiency and security this winter and keep your home protected with perfect glazing

Posted on 15.10.2019

When designing your interior project, glazing is one of the most important considerations when looking to create the perfect extension.

Thanks to top quality glazing and frames, bifold doors and sliding doors are no longer seen as a cause for concern when it comes to keeping heat in and intruders out.

The glass units work with the aluminium frames to provide optimum energy efficiency, durability, security and weather resistance – so you don’t even have to compromise on style.

Of course, it’s important to consider energy efficiency and security when deciding on glazing, so we’ve done some research for you, featuring two of our most popular products for Sussex renovations.

Protect your home with aïr 800 bifold doors

If you’re keen to open up space and add more light, bifold doors could be the right choice for you.

They also come with enhanced energy efficient, so despite the colder weather right now, you’ll still be toasty and warm.

aïr 800 bifold doors offer U Values from 1.4w/m2K, can withstand windloads of up to 100 mph and are watertight up to 600pa to give you a stunning glass feature that sets off any interior project.

The impressive engineering behind aïr 800 bifold doors also allows for a burglar proof door that is certified and accredited by UKAS with the latest requirements for enhanced security.

aïr 800 bifold doors are expertly crafted with high-tech multipoint locking systems and the Sold-Secure diamond-tested Ultion lock that enters lockdown mode when an attack is detected, achieving PAS 24 accreditation to give you peace of mind and keep your property protected.

The aïr 800 is called the Rolls Royce of bifold doors and can create extreme style possibilities all year round.

As well as offering high quality performance, the cutting-edge design means the aluminium frames are resistant to corrosion, twisting rusting, warping and fading.

If you want, you can even choose aïrcoat – which is a special dirt-resistant, scratch-resistant, textured paint.

Bifold doors have multiple panels of glass and can turn a room into a stunning and stylish area – with the added benefits of offering high levels of energy efficiency and security.

While you’re making a statement in your home, you’re certainly not compromising on the important things that matter.

Feel safe and secure with aïr lift & slide doors

Sliding doors are a stunning option in any home renovation project and create an open space that leads out onto your garden.

Despite producing minimal sightlines and effortlessly letting more light into a space, they also keep the cold weather out.

This expertly engineered design offers an impressive performance, while at the same time, creating a door tailored to the needs of your property.

aïr 500LS & 600LS aluminium lift & slide doors work by gliding, with the glass panels sliding behind one another.

As well as protecting homes from the cold, they also protect homeowners from break-ins thanks to the Sold-Secure diamond-tested Ulton lock that enters lockdown mode when an intruder is detected. This means this product achieves UKAS PAS 24 accreditation as standard for a burglar proof feature.
