Fairlight Architectural House NSW

High performance doors for this architecturally designed house

When David Nassif, the general manager of Bright & Clear Pty Ltd, needed high performance doors for an architecturally designed house at Fairlight on Sydney's Northern Beaches, the decision was easy. "We decided to use the Alspec Fitzroy commercial sliding door," he explains, "for its superior quality, after taking into consideration its strength capabilities, excellent performance and ease of manufacture. This - combined with Alspec is unmatched personalised service, support and back-up made the choice of using the Alspec Fitzroy an easy one."

Nassif's experience is one echoed by numerous designers, architects and specifiers throughout Australia. Combining excellence with flexibility, the Fitzroy sliding door is aimed at the high performance door market, offering a versatile solution that is as appropriate for commercial applications as it is for architecturally designed houses.

Designed with choice in mind, this versatility is one of the Fitzroy's great advantages. The door offers configurations to suit any purpose, from a simple XO single slider through to multiple panel, wide opening configurations and 90 degree corner solutions. Depending on the application, the Fizroy door has a maximum height of 3m and width of up to 1.5m per panel.

This flexibility allowed Nassif the scope to fully realise his design intention, implementing a combination of XO, XXO and XXXO configurations, with the doors rising to 2.7 m high and the panels stretching to 1.2 m wide.

If these doors have the flexibility to adapt to a wide range of applications, they also offer the certainty of high performance in any context. Independently tested in a NATA Accredited test facility, the Fitzroy is fully compliant with AS2047 for water penetration, air penetration and structural strength.

It is also capable of accepting single and double glazed units and a wide range of acoustic glasses and, having been acoustic tested at the National Acoustics Laboratory in Sydney, offers the assurance of equally high performance in this area.

Boasting strength, high performance and flexibility, the Alspec® Fitzroy is an easy choice for specifiers and architects alike, working on a wide range of applications.
