One of our recent customers located in the Barossa Valley had a heating issue within their existing lounge room and adjacent study. Their lounge room was draughty and often cold (in particular in Winter) due to the fact that although the two rooms shared a beautiful stone wall, the two rooms were only semi-open planned. The client wasn't able to close off the two room completely from each other, letting the cold air from the study into the lounge.
Our client decided they needed to do something about it, especially after they installed a new wood fire into the lounge. Although the wood fire did a great deal to warm their lounge room up in Winter, the cold chills and draughts were still making it through.
After consultation with one of Aluminium Plus' staff members, our client decided to get French Doors installed between the walk way, with a fixed panel installed on top. This allowed the greatest versatility within the space - the doors could still be opened to allow the whole width of the opening to be used and it also allowed heat through to the study when opened. When the doors were closed though, the French Doors were almost completely air tight, meaning that during the Winter the doors could be closed and the precious warm air in the lounge room would no longer escape.
Aluminium Plus also chose to manufacture the French Doors and fixed panel in Pearl White aluminium with clear 4mm glass installed, allowing natural light from the study to filter through to the lounge room.
The doors and fixed panel were measured and manufactured specifically for the space. As the lounge room had an existing stone wall that couldn't be damaged, the door had to be made-to-measure.
Both Aluminium Plus and our client were extremely happy with the results:
"We found Aluminium Plus to give us positive, quick and reliable service. The company went the extra mile to give us exactly what we needed when we needed new French doors. They gave us a free measure and quote and we were very happy and pleased with the results."
