The Property:

Traditional late 19th century mid terraced property in York with a new rear extension sympathetically faced with reclaimed local red brick work.

The Requirement:

A specific requirement for a ‘steel lookalike’ steel alternative French door scheme with fixed side lights and run through glazing transoms in a slim frame thermally efficient aluminium system.

A very low threshold detail and maximum glass areas were essential features of the design.

It was also important to the owners that outer frame sight lines were visibly equal around the perimeter of the outer frame.

Part of the specification was to incorporate a cat flap within one of the lower corner sealed units.

The Solution:

Marlin Windows Heritage Door system was recommended as the perfect steel replacement solution to meet all of the owners requirements.

Marlin used dedicated system components in critical areas to ensure an equal outer frame sight line on both sides of the door scheme - this was particularly important so as not to ‘bury’ the side light frames with the internal final floor finish as the door threshold detail needed to be as low as possible.
