Apeer Barbie door takes centre stage

Aperture doors, a retail installation company based in Cheshire, has featured a specially made ‘Barbie’ inspired pink entrance door, from the new Residence Door Collection by Apeer range, for a ‘Family Fest’ fun day organised by Knutsford town council.

Inspired by the door shown on the FIT Show stand for the launch of The Residence Door Collection by Apeer, earlier this year, the door featured a heart-shaped glazing cassette and was highlighted by bold, pink Barbie-themed window graphics.

Aperture Doors’ Lillie Pragnell said: “Knutsford Council organises a number of events in the town centre and we always try and participate. And with the Barbie movie just being shown in cinemas at the time we decided to have fun and create this display.

“We only had a few days’ notice and Apeer responded really quickly to supply us with the door.”

Aperture Luxury Doors set up in the Cheshire town just four months ago as a spin off from another glazing firm located in Middlewich run by Lillie and business partner and husband Doug Carter.

“Knutsford is a very lively, wealthy town and we chose a number of luxury brands appropriate for local homeowners, who are used to choosing the finer things in life,” explained Lillie.“In addition to other high-end brands and despite an emphasis on doors, we feature Residence Collection windows in our showroom, and The Residence Door Collection by Apeer is perfect for the type of customer that we appeal to.”

The Residence Door Collection by Apeer, includes a range of 20 styles including traditional, contemporary, and stable door designs, in nine standard colours. Doors are presented in a 120mm format, and with U values from as low as 0.51 W/m2K, with every door in the range below 0.75 W/m2K.

Glass units, where relevant, are 78mm quadruple sealed units as standard. Construction is of GRP skins around a high-density PU core, reinforced with aluminium anti-cut through security mesh.
