The steel window specialist has incorporated a set of the single-glazed W20 doors into an area of its South London offices, which doubles as a boardroom and a showroom; providing an ideal opportunity for homeowners, capital’s architects and interior designers to get a feel for the stylish innovation.
Like most SWA members, West Leigh offers a wide choice of frame sections and configurations, but has chosen to produce its new pivot and sliding door options using the widely specified and traditional W20 profiles. These offer a similar slimline steel section as well as strength and good light transmission, while their galvanised coating can be finished in any RAL colour.
For the pivot door, the mechanism is recessed into the floor for a modern minimalist appearance, while the B1 parting door moves aside on a track, fitted at the head, either in front or behind (in this case behind) of the fixed frame to greatly reduce the space taken when opened. Both doors are single glazed using toughened or laminated safety glass and can be fitted with a variety of handles, including locking ones if required.
A spokesperson for West Leigh commented, “The new door options complement our internal screens and could be a feature used to separate a lounge and dining room; or installed in places like architects’ studios, offices etc.”
West Leigh and the SWA are already receiving interest from homeowners and interior design consultants, seeking to maximise light and looks when dividing rooms or larger spaces.
