A canopy provides shelter from the elements allowing you to spend longer outdoors, as well as bringing contemporary design to your home.
Optional Awning for Shading
An optional external awning can provide shade in the summer, with choices for manual, electric and remote operation.
The advantage of an external awning over an internal blind is that the awning stops the heat from the sun before it passes through the glazing.
Canopy + Sliding Glass Panels = Glass Room
The addition of frameless sliding glass panels can turn your open space into a glass room in the evening or on cool or windy days, creating a sheltered haven where nature is never far away.
Note: The Glass Room provides weather protection and can be very pleasant on a sunny winter's day but it is not thermally insulated. For insulated glass extensions, see the Wintergarden system.
A glass room, like those on this page, has single glazed panels and is not insulated — there may even be small gaps between glass panels. It can thought of as a glass covered patio area. It can be a lovely place to sit on a sunny winter's day and in the summer the sliding glass panels can be opened up leaving just the roof. You can add an infra-red heater for a little warmth in cold weather.
Wintergarden (aka Glass Extension) VIEW PAGE
"Wintergarden" is a German term for an insulated glass extension. A Wintergarden is double or triple glazed and fully insulated all round — the addition of bifolding or sliding doors allow it to be opened up on a sunny day. It can be used as a separate sun room, like a conservatory, or the wall can be knocked through to create a glass extension to a room, becoming part of the home and used all year round.
The SL20 is a system of multi-track frameless sliding glass panels.
The panels slide along a straight track to a linear stack at one end.
There is a maximum of 3 tracks.
The SL25 is a sytem of slide-and-turn glass panels. The panels slide along a single track but can be turned at the end to slide along another track. This allows panels on several sides to be stacked in one corner.
When used as a partition, it allows the panels to turn and stack against a wall, out of the way.
Glass Rooms are tested in extreme conditions to make sure they can stand anything that is thrown at them. This video demonstrates how effective they really are.
