PatioMaster triple-track ‘the perfect solution’
A property in Ludlow, Shropshire, has benefited from the installation of a PatioMaster triple-track sliding door and adjoining Optima tilt and turn windows to create a 7m expanse of glass that delivers panoramic views of the Shropshire Hills.
The owners of the property wanted to make the most of the vistas from their newly constructed garden room as their view overlooks an area of outstanding natural beauty. They turned to longstanding Epwin Window Systems’ installer, Oswestry Windows and Doors (OWD), to realise their vision.
Matt Dunne-Smith, owner of OWD, said: “Having discussed the project in detail with the homeowner, we recommended using a 5m triple-track PatioMaster door in combination with two full height Optima tilt & turn windows. Manufactured in smooth anthracite grey on white they would suite perfectly to deliver an expanse of glass while providing the contemporary aesthetics the homeowners wanted and complement the stunning natural surroundings.”
The PatioMaster triple-track patio door reportedly offers up to 25% more open space than a conventional sliding patio door and is said to have an improved glass to frame ratio when compared to a similar sized door.
Matt said: “We have seen a sharp increase in demand from consumers looking to blur the lines between the home and the garden with aspirational products. These spaces are created using large expanses of glazing and glass doors, and the high-end PatioMaster triple-track door was the perfect solution.”
Two complete the 7m span, two full height Optima tilt & turn windows were fitted. Matt said: “Full height Optima tilt & turn windows offer improved sightlines and a higher glass-to-frame ratio to open up bigger vistas which was perfect for this project.”
The doors and windows were manufactured by OWD’s fabrication partner Emplas.
The team at OWD is said have worked closely with the homeowner to ensure every detail met exacting requirements and installation ran smoothly and with the minimum of disruption.
Matt concluded: “We have been fitting Epwin Window Systems’ products for many years because they deliver at every level. This project perfectly demonstrates the quality, versatility and style on offer. We are delighted with the results – as are the homeowners.”
