Kent Origin Bifolding Doors and Lanterns

Property Description

A recently constructed Kent detached home with a new extension at the back of the property.  The new extension has been designed to provide a light-filled space with a large glass frontage and additional daylight thanks to the glass in the roof. 

Work Carried Out

Open Living supplied and installed the market leading Origin bifolding doors, polyester powder coated in a contemporary grey RAL 7015 matt.  Configured in a six-panel, open out design, the bifold doors feature the popular traffic door, designed to allow all-year-round functionality. A traffic door works just like an independent door leaf, letting the homeowner in and out of the garden without having to fold all the bifolding door panels back every time. This six panel bifold has three panels sliding/folding to the left and three to the right.

The bifolding doors have colour matched hinges and intermediate handles with a trickle vent fitted to the head of the outer frame.  The main door leaf has an 8-point lock and premium Hafi designer door handle in satin stainless steel. A matching powder coated cill completes the installation.

Also fitted are two of the most contemporary lantern roofs on the market.  Designed in four segments, with the minimum of glazing bars, these slimline lantern roofs provide natural daylight into the room as well as being light, strong and energy efficient.  Each rooflight is 2.5m long and 1.5m wide.
