Grand Designs have created a comprehensive guide to entrance door designs in their February 2021 issue. The Apertio Solid front door range from IQ was featured as part of the article, as an example of a contemporary pivoting door design with a steel core and aluminium outer frame.
Expert advice from Rebecca Clayton was featured as part of the buying guide, including advice for protecting the pivoting system from driving rain, by setting the front door back slightly from the front face of the house, or by integrating a canopy into the design.
The Apertio system also works well in conservation areas, thanks to the ability to specify different finishes for the inner and outer side of the door. This ensures that the external appearance can be designed to follow the relevant conservation rules, while the inside can be customised to suit a modern interior design.
The Apertio Solid is a highly bespoke system, available in a huge range of finishes designed to suit any modern project. From ceramic to Italian marble, behind each luxury outer coating is hidden a reinforced steel core within a thermally broken aluminium outer frame.
The full guide by Grand Designs can be accessed on page 96 of the online magazine.
