Trade Fabricator, CWG Choices, recently completed a project with Ampthill Glass Centre to supply doors with Swisspacer inside for a six-home new build at Edlesborough, Bedfordshire.
The contemporary new builds benefit from triple track sliders that make the most of the panoramic views. Two panels of each door slide behind the third, so the opening is generous and the ‘clean, uncluttered’ lines are said to complement the project design perfectly.
But good as they look, energy efficiency was also important. With each sealed unit measuring more than 4m2, it was essential to ensure the best thermal performance.
Jason Wilder, managing director of CWG Choices, said: “Energy efficiency is a key criteria when specifying windows and doors. Homeowners expect their new homes to be thermally efficient, and given the expanse of glass involved in this project, Ultimate was the obvious answer.”
According to Swisspacer, Ultimate is a leading warm edge spacer bar with the lowest heat conductivity. Its unique high tech gas barrier stops moisture getting in and insulating gas getting out of the sealed unit. Swisspacer says that this means performance doesn’t drop and homeowners benefit from energy savings, year after year.
“Swisspacer also offers the best selection of spacer bar colours, with a choice of 17,” continued Jason. “We used black to complement the grey of our frames. The doors look great and benefit from leading components to ensure the best performance too.”
