PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Door brochure gets make over » » 2017 HAS BEEN A RECORD YEAR FOR Vista Panels Ltd and a lot of that success is attributed to the XtremeDoor brochure released back in January. The new styles and colours along with the improved door specification proved a real hit with their customer base. The firm has now re-designed the brochure to focus on XtremeDoor’s best-selling styles and colours. By carefully looking at what has been going through the factory, they have made the new version consumer-led focused and ultimately more appealing. The new brochure highlights the consumer trend towards Anthracite Grey, which is right behind the long-standing leader Black in popularity. New colours Slate Grey and Moon Dust have also moved up the pecking order, with Chartwell green not far behind. The new brochure gives more room to contemporary door styles such as the new Verona (single glazed), which has been a real hit. The XtremeDoor consumer facing website has also had a revamp with an easy to use door designer and updated gallery showing off their customer’s installations.

ATLANTIC VIEWS AT SEA EDGE HOUSE » » TORQUAY’S FENSTER Fabrications has contributed to a stylish sea-view residential development that’s been shortlisted for multiple awards. Designed by respected Truro architects KAST, and located in Downderry on Cornwall’s south coast, Sea Edge House is a strikingly modern cliff-edge property with stunning Atlantic views. The dwelling’s low roof profile allows it to make the most of its spectacular location, without obstructing the views of properties further inland. Entry is gained from the upper level, with an external staircase offering quick access to the garden. KAST used Fenster’s flagship Uni_Slide sliding doors to allow access onto the dwelling’s 10m south-facing balcony. Offering exceptional thermal efficiency, build quality, and desirable minimalist aesthetics, Uni_Slide can achieve frame sightlines as slim as 20mm, and a slim central interlock, while being able to support sliding panels of up to 3m high and 2.2m wide. The product can be assembled in a limitless run of units, with each panel capable of holding up to 320kg of glass. KAST has subsequently been shortlisted as Best Self Build Architect or Designer of the Year because of their work on the Sea Edge House project.

Dekko’s eureka moment came when the Greater Manchester firm saw the industry landscape move towards premium products and launched Residence 9, the timber-look flush sash window, back in in 2013 and focused entirely on Deceuninck products and their colour from stock. Dekko quickly grew to become the largest fabricator of The Residence Collection and Deceuninck products, prompting them to move from their original 25,000 square foot factory in 38 » JAN 2018 » CL EARVI E W- UK .
