Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island SA
Our superior sliding doors, windows and framing solutions provide maximum durability and protection.
Building the perfect ocean side escape is an incredible opportunity to make the most of beautiful vistas but it is also important to ensure components are selected which will withstand the potential extremes of weather. For this stunning getaway in Emu Bay, Kangaroo Island, large sliding doors and expansive windows from Alspec’s superior product ranges have provided the perfect framing solutions to accentuate the location’s features while providing maximum durability and protection.
The home centres around four key living areas – kitchen, dining, interior and exterior lounges – all positioned to emphasise the oceanic views. ProGlide High Performance Sliding Doors, with their ability to span large spaces, provide virtually uninterrupted views when closed. Above the doors, highlight windows accentuate the light and ensure a spacious feel at all times. With their smooth-operating recessed multi-tracks, the ProGlide doors effortlessly transition the indoor and outdoor areas to one larger space when required. By selecting the “post free” corner option for the doors between the indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a completely seamless integration of the outdoor living spaces is easily achieved.
Meanwhile, where hinged doors were required, the Swan Commercial Double Glazed Door was the ideal choice. Although developed for the commercial environment, the Swan doors have become popular for residential builds where superior operation and performance is important. The doors feature McArthur 101.6mm centre pocket framing, which makes them additionally secure while ensuring superior energy performance for the building. In addition, the centre pocket framing creates a cleaner appearance, as well as improving fabrication and installation time.
Also with energy efficiency in mind, ecoFRAMEplus 101.6mm Centre Pocket Framing was selected for the home’s large fixed windows which feature in the rear bedroom and bathroom areas. The versatile ecoFRAMEplus can be configured with a wide range of double glazing options and features sub sills which further enhance all-weather performance.
Whether completely opening up their living spaces in summer, or keeping them securely closed during winter, the inhabitants of this Emu Bay Home will always be able to create the perfect living space from which to enjoy this picturesque location.
