PatioMaster Triple-Track Door opens up Shropshire Home
December 13, 2021
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 an impressive 7-metre 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 five-metre 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.”
PatioMaster is one of the UK’s leading patio doors. Its triple-track patio door offers up to 25% more open space than a conventional sliding patio door and has an improved glass to frame ratio when compared to a similar sized door. There are fewer vertical frames to break the view than with a bifolding style, which was the key factor on this project. 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 7-metre span, two full height Optima Tilt and 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, one of the country’s leading manufacturers and a company that has specialised in trade fabrication since 1985.
The team at OWD 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.”
