Your partner for specialist glazing projects
7 September 2021
Our carefully curated range of architectural glazing includes sliding, bifold and feature doors, roof lights and lanterns – all of which are designed, specified and installed to meet the exact needs of each project. During an Initial Project Consultation, we will discuss the vision of your project so that we can fully understand your requirements.
The Specialist glazing style
To achieve the perfect architectural glazing for a project, some projects will include a combination of different glazing styles. This article focusses on the Specialist glazing style, which allows you to create unique glazed installations. During your Initial Project Consultation, we will advise you on the styles and systems to achieve the vision.
The Specialist glazing style achieves unique and unlimited glazing opportunities throughout the home, with fully customisable finishes, frames, handles, configuration and automation. Whether you are looking for floating corners, ridge lights, guillotine windows, glass eaves or pivot doors, the specialist glazing style can do this and more.
Specialist glazing in Rushden, Hertfordshire
A beautiful cottage-style home in Rushden, Hertfordshire is a great example of specialist glazing and the wow-factor it can create for a home. Part of the project is a glazed link, also known as up & over glazing or Pure Glass Eaves. This specialist glazing solution, part of the Pure Glass Bespoke range, incorporates large, glazed panels with minimal frame to achieve edge-to-edge glazing. This glazed link will connect the existing home with the new open plan kitchen, dining and living area.
Far more than just a run of large, glazed panels, this glazed link features a bespoke angle ‘dog-leg’ (WG07) which connects to a set of exterior pocket sliding doors (WG06). Rather than using steels, the fixed glazed panels are connected to the sliding doors via slim glass to glass joints to continue the minimalist design.
The 5355m wide sliding doors, will completely open, to create a moving wall of glass, with the panels stacked on the outside thanks to the exterior pocket design, rather than a traditional interior or concealed pocket.
The image below gives an impression of how the glazed link, fixed pane (WG08), dog-leg (WG07) and exterior pocket sliding doors (WG06) will look once installed.
