Balcony Systems delivers an inspiring set of doors to a 300 year old cottage in Nottinghamshire.

One of Balcony’s largest curved glass patio doors installed in the UK made up of a combination of four movable (sliding) and four fixed doors, the doors make a truly impressive statement and demonstrate a spectacular appeal.

Enclosing just over a semi circle (210 degrees) of curved glass and measuring ten metres in length the doors flood the living room extension with light from all sides. They were installed as a part of an extensive renovation to the 300-year-old property, which now comprises three former farmworkers’ cottages in one.

The doors are finished with a RAL 7038 Agate Grey powder coating. The circular shape was originally designed with wooden uprights, but the plans changed once the owners, David and Lynn Walton from Nottinghamshire, saw Balcony’s glass curved patio doors at the Grand Designs Live exhibition.

Making the most of the garden view

“It certainly achieves what we wanted; that is to make the most of views to the garden and we have brought the garden into our home,” said David. “The door is a focal point in the living room where it forms an entire wall at one end. It’s so striking and everyone likes it!”

“Now we have fitted the decking the curved patio door really comes into its own. It is never too hot or too sunny and the pleasure of the panoramic view of the garden cannot be over emphasised.”

The price was right

“The price was right – and quite competitive – for what is a totally bespoke job,” added David. “The door is so dramatic and there really is nothing quite like it on the UK market.”

Curved door configurations

A great many options and combinations of fixed and sliding doors are available. Balcony Systems offer an installation service as well as the option to buy and install yourself.

Stunning views from Balcony Systems’ curved sliding patio doors at Gara Rock resort.

Panoramic ocean views are dished up every day for diners at this new South Devon restaurant – thanks to a show-stopping curved sliding patio door from Balcony Systems.

Doors and panels design

The balustrading and curved door specialist met the architect’s specification with a nine-panel door, incorporating two sliding panels, spanning well over half the building’s circular sea-facing elevation.

Measuring nearly 15 metres in width with a blue powder-coated finish, the door opens onto an outdoor dining terrace at the Gara Rock Restaurant, part of an exclusive coastal resort complex built by Coast Group near Salcombe.

Directly below, a second eight metre-wide curved patio door with two sliding panels, also supplied by Balcony, offers similar spectacular sea views for guests using the indoor swimming pool and spa facilities.

180 degree view

Diana Hunt, who runs the restaurant with Ian Dent, said: “The wonderful curved glass wall and doors frame an almost 180 degree view of the south Devon coastline.  We are able to open the curved glass doors back to the point where they almost seem to disappear. They are incredibly smooth, but heavy enough to dissuade children from playing too enthusiastically with them!”

Bringing the outdoor in

Suitable for virtually any commercial or residential property, Balcony’s curved patio doors add the ‘wow’ factor with a versatility that allows for a variety of sliding or fixed configurations within almost limitless creative scope for designers and architects. Wide openings can be achieved to seamlessly connect interior and outdoor spaces.

Adding extra fixed curved panels allows for longer glazed runs, further enhancing views, light and the feeling of space to any interior.

Visual statement of the building

Simon Baldwin, Director of Aminghurst Ltd, Gara Rock’s owners, commented: “Both doors are quite stunning, creating a distinctive visual statement and making the most of impressive vistas from the building.

“The doors enable guests to enjoy the beautiful views in comfort, whatever the weather, while also providing practical and easy access to the terraces by the restaurant and pool.”

Installation

Installation of both doors went smoothly, according to Gara Rock Site Manager Tim Jones, who added: “The general consensus from everyone who sees them is that they look spectacular and really make the most of this unique cliff top location.”
