Slimmer Frames, Bigger Sizes, Grander Entrances

Aluminium installers can get extra large single and French doors from aïr to meet the latest contemporary home design trends.

This latest product trend is exemplified by the aïr 800 bi-fold door system to create single entrance doors up to 1200mm x 3000mm and French doors for openings up to 2400mm x 3000mm. In many cases, it removes the need for additional sidelights and toplights, for minimalist design that suites with aïr bi-fold and lift & slide doors and the aïr MOD Series window range.


 “By understanding the trends that are driving homeowners’ buying decisions, we can deliver the next big products ahead of time for installation companies.”

“There are more and more large extensions being built on the back of homes, to create sought-after open-plan living," continues Everglade's Patel. "These are often fitted with aluminium bi-fold or lift & slide doors to connect spaces and bring much-needed natural light into rooms, however, homes sometimes need a secondary entrance. These are usually on the back of the home, giving access to a separate utility area or on the side of the house.

“Rather than supplying an aluminium entrance door with a toplight or sidelight addition, now installers can offer a taller, wider single or French door that will look impressive and often offer a more cost-effective option for homeowners."



Patel adds: “We also predict that this will be a big trend for front doors as more homeowners opt for Grand Designs style living with aluminium windows and impressive entrances to their properties. Giving them an extra large, minimalist design entrance door will perfectly fit with the vision for their homes.”
