Ultraline Case Study: a contemporary glass box extension to maximise garden views

Cassiobury Park
Peter Bradley and his wife Sue decided to replace an old conservatory they had inherited with their house with a contemporary glass box extension to maximise the views of the garden and Cassiobury Park.

The new room was designed with hidden steel pillars, a cantilevered roof and a 4-panel set of Ultraline slimline sliding door system installed by Minima Sliding, the specialist installers of Ultraline. The set was made of four 3.2 metre high glass panels, two panels fixed on each side and two sliding panels in the centre creating a 4.4 metre opening.

CDI: Creaky floors? Lewis Deck - making floors better

When considering how to construct their 1st floors, many people think it is difficult to get the same feel and performance as their screeded ground floor.

With the Lewis Deck system there is no need to compromise as it provides the means to replicate exactly the same pipes in screed performance as the ground floor as well as providing the level of acoustic separation usually reserved for penthouse apartments in the most exclusive developments. Additionally, it's all at a cost that is similar to other 1st floor UFH or acoustic solutions, and it’s easy to build too.

For further information, please click here.

Find CDI at Stand 171 in The Trade Village.
