Two Townhouses: How our Vantage aluminium systems allow greater Architectural freedom
Prior to renovation, these two townhouses were original Spanish mission style homes. When Architect Robert Davidov was given the task of designing the renovations for these two homes, his main priorities were to maintain some of the original fixtures and form, whilst utilising high performance, energy-efficient products from our range.
Located in Melbourne, the build had a requirement of a 6-star rating for energy efficiency. Architect Robert realised that glazing was to play a key factor in ensuring the homes met with strict, high-level performance ratings. The extremely long western elevation of the townhouses meant it was going to be difficult to implement large spans of windows and doors into the properties.
Our team of experts custom designed and manufactured multiple energy-efficient solutions, including large scale, thermally-broken sliding doors, as well as corner and awning windows to suit the specific needs of the project. We are proud of the results!
- High-performance sliding doors were tested for compliance with the relevant Australian Standards, achieving a very high water resistance level
- Extra strong multi-hollow meeting stiles allow large sliding doors to be used even in high wind load areas
- Doors able to be fitted with a surface mounted deadlock, mortice lock or multi-point mortice lock for added security
- Sliding doors run on heavy duty double bogey wheel carriages. The key to silent running door is to match the wheel diameter to the running track
