Reynaers Sliding Doors give more than Meets the Eye

Reynaers - Sliding Doors

At first glance, one brand of sliding door may appear similar to the next, but looks can be deceiving. Up close, the superior quality of Reynaers’ systems is evident, with an industry-leading maximum glass size of 2.7m in height. The slimline aluminium frames can also support glass up to 43mm in thickness and 300kg in weight.

These huge panes of glass command panoramic, uninterrupted views that welcome natural light into the home. By choosing a special corner solution, it is possible to open up the space without any fixed corner element for a complete removal of barriers between internal and external spaces.

Not only this, but the ease of operation takes the CP 130 one step further for homeowners. Reynaers’ lift-and-slide solution has a longer handle which, when turned through 180°, lifts the door slightly, reducing the friction and allowing the door to open and close with the lightest of touches.

Reynaers CP 130 sliding door is available as a single-, double-, or triple-track system with multiple configurations. It offers the highest levels of insulation, weather resistance and security, as well as hundreds of finish options and accessories to suit any design requirements.

With double glazing a U-value of 1.5 W/m²K can be achieved, and 1.1 W/m²K with triple glazing. Security meets RC2, PAS24 and Secured by Design standards, as well as the system having class 4 air-tightness, C3 wind-resistance and up to Class 9a water-resistance.

Rebecca Cope, Marketing Manager at Reynaers, said: "The aesthetics and performance of the CP 130 are ideal for a recent project of ours, on Sir Harrys Road in Edgbaston (pictured). It’s a misconception that aluminium systems are only suitable for new-builds and ultra-modern architectural styles, as they can really complement traditional architecture.

"On this project in particular, you can see how the vast panes of glass provide a stark contrast to the sliding-sash windows with Georgian bars. Whilst these look stunning, the sliding doors bring something new to the property and allow them to enjoy looking out at their expansive green spaces in a new way. The choice of the slim, dark frames against the red brickwork and existing white frames makes this home really special."

Not only is the CP 130 designed to perform to the highest standards, the component parts are also made from only the best materials. The stainless steel rollers, for example, have been tested to thousands of cycles, so you can be confident that you are offering a door that will keep opening and closing smoothly for years to come.
