Over the course of the past year or so, our homes have very much become our haven; the place we look upon as a sanctuary from harm; somewhere to feel protected. Naturally, being at home more has made many of us rethink how we use the space, instilling a real desire to make improvements. The desire for more outdoor space has also increased, as has the desire to bring the outside in.
Imagine if the rear wall of your house was replaced with large panels of glass that revealed more of the garden with much less of the frames – unlike traditional sliding or bifold doors where the view is interrupted with door frames. The advanced technology of the award-winning theEDGE2.0 sliding doors from IDSystems reduces sightlines to an astonishing minimum, giving you greater visibility of the view outside.
With glazed doors like this installed, you instantly open your home up to breathtaking views of the vista beyond your home – be that your own garden, the rolling countryside or a seascape – filling your rooms with light. Even in winter when the doors are kept closed for most of the time, the large panels and slender ultra-thin frames offer a real connection between house and garden, creating the illusion of the room extending right out onto the patio. When summer time rolls around, the doors can be slid open wide for a seamless transition from inside to out.
Award-winning and in business for more than 20 years, IDSystems has set the standard for glazing solutions. Its new, innovative design of theEDGE2.0 delivers an incredibly narrow 20mm frame width with a super-slim depth of just 59mm; measurements that are in complete contrast to the chunkier frames you typically expect to see on sliding doors. With smaller measurements like this, the frame profile is sleek and remains close to the glass, giving you a truly slim sightline from all angles. Whichever way you look, the doors remain unobtrusive to the view.
Slender certainly does not mean inferior, before you think such a thing. IDSystems products are renowned for their exceptional quality and performance in addition to their stylish and contemporary appearances – and theEDGE2.0 is no exception. This new design – offered with a ten-year warranty – combines aesthetic beauty, everyday practicality and first-class quality, all coming together to create beautiful doors with cutting-edge technology you can trust. Achieving your perfect wow-factor is easy, too, with different configurations, bespoke sizes and a vast palette of colours – you can tailor the doors to suit your existing home or a new project. You can even opt to have doors that slide into a pocket in the wall or go for a design with flush tracks that offer easy step-free access. The range of configurations is vast, meaning you can have exactly what you want and in any size – astonishingly, IDSystems can provide widths of up to an incredible 24 metres!
You may think turning the rear of your house completely into glass will be at the sacrifice of a cosy, warmer home, but that’s not the case. IDSystems’ theEDGE2.0 offers superior performance with its severe weather rating and is designed to give excellent thermal efficiency. The panes achieve an overall U-Value from 1.2W/m2K, resulting in reduced energy consumption and cost savings for your heating bills. So whether you live in the depths of a suburban town or in one of the most exposed and rural locations, you can rest assured that your doors don’t only look good but will also protect against strong winds and harsh rains. Plus, the system has been designed and installed to police specifications, and holds the prestigious Secured by Design security award, giving you enhanced security and protection you can rely on.
