Weather Protection System

The double glazed frameless glass door boasts a unique and innovative weather protection system never seen before in patio door design. Each glass panel uses an opaque gasket tube running from top to bottom in order to protect itself from adverse weather conditions. Each gasket tube consists of a male and female adjoining mechanism. When the panels are locked in place using the side compression lock, each panel is forced into the next by the pressure and the male/female joints connect. The gaskets have a ‘rubber like’ property which allows maximum use of the compression, and in turn, the system becomes weather resistant.

Reducing Heat Loss

A crucial aspect to any patio door system is retaining heat. The benefits of this are numerous: allowing for better heat retention in homes as well as lowering CO2 emissions, therefore saving you money on heating bills, whilst giving unmatchable clear glass views. To achieve this, the top and bottom holding rails are thermally broken which lends to lower heat loss through the aluminium parts. The weather protection system itself also to lowers heat loss through its adjoining gasket system. The glass panels themselves actually have a lower U-value than other materials often used in conservatory doors.
