Initially approached by the architect, we were asked to supply and install the frameless glass element of this grand entrance porch to a residential property just outside of London.
We carefully considered the design and implemented the following features;
-Oversize glass was used to remove any joints in the glass and provide as seamless an installation as possible.
-The frameless glass doors were matched in size and position to reflect the existing doors.
-The stainless steel handles to the door, match those on the original entrance doors.
-The perimeter glazing channel was only used top and bottom to keep the installation as minimal as possible and colour matched to the exsiting windows and doors.
-The oversized fixed glass panels are shaped to follow the stepped line of the wall with only a minimal silicone joint between them.
The installation was a great success – the large panels weighing over 200kg were fun to manoeuvre into position! And the client and architect were really pleased with the finished product.
The result gives the client an enclosed porch space, shielded from the wind and rain and fully lockable for extra security whilst the frameless glass design is as minimal as possible to not detract from the original design.
