“We’ve been an aïr Accredited Retailer from the beginning,” says Joe Solomons, Managing Director at Windows Etc. “We were looking for the next generation in aluminium sliding and bi-folding doors and we found aïr, just before it was launched.”
“The aïr brand attracts a different type of client. They’re more design-aware and they’re looking for large panes of glass to let lots of light into their homes. They want something that’s both stylish and cost-effective — aïr meets those needs.
“It’s not unusual for us to have a client come in and talk to us about the ins and outs of a door for over an hour, because they’re savvy. They do their research and they know what they want.”
In this particular project, Window Etc’s clients wanted to create a multifunctional, open-plan living space, where they had plenty of room for entertaining. They were looking for wide-span glazed doors to merge their indoor and outdoor living spaces.
They chose an aïr 600LS – a 6.3m wide, three pane sliding door with a flush threshold that blurs the lines between their stunning garden decking area and new open plan living extension.
“It’s a really well-designed door system,” continues Joe. “We love the sightlines and the very square profile of the frame. The clever engineering of the stainless steel wheels gives the heavy panes a really easy glide.
“It’s these things that make aïr stand out from other aluminium sliding and bi-folding doors – things like the hardware range and the textured paint options give extra choice to customers.”
aïrcoat, the textured paint, is available in 14 different aïrcoat colours and gives a stunning finish to this kind of modern installation.
“Selling aïr has also helped us to increase our aluminium sales and expand our offering. It’s a lovely range from a great brand. We like Everglade’s easy ordering system and they offer great technical support, too. We always receive precision-manufactured products, so installations for our customers go really smoothly.”
Windows Etc. will be officially opening its new showroom on 21 April. As part of the launch, an impressive new aïrzone, featuring a triple track aïr 600LS, two pane aïr 500LS and an aïr 800 bi-folding door will be unveiled.
