VIP dog hotel
PatioMaster Ireland and Derryork Windows of County Londonderry recently completed an unusual project in Coleraine – the installation of five sliding patio doors in a VIP dog hotel.
Ian Eccles is the owner of Alpha One Dog Hotel, which officially opened in April 2018. He says the aim was to create an upmarket dog hotel and patio doors were an important part of the look.
“Dog hotels can often be unappealing, with dogs peering through the bars of their kennels,” he said. “I wanted to use patio doors so the dogs in our VIP suites would have a clear, open outlook that felt much more homely.”
When Ian first started to investigate the options, he had assumed he was looking for aluminium doors but it was a conversation with Derek Morrow of the family-owned Derryork Windows that changed his mind.
“I was amazed by the colour options and versatility of the PatioMaster doors,” he said.
Ian opted for PatioMaster patio doors in anthracite grey which were manufactured by PatioMaster Ireland and installed by Derryork.
