A recently published article on Houzz discusses alternative options to bifolding doors, exploring all possibilities both fixed and opening. Entire walls of frameless glass from IQ were featured, showcasing the additional benefits of this seamless solution.
The main advantage of specifying frameless glass walls is the uninterrupted views. Houzz recognised the appeal of clear views and recommended glass walls as a modern alternative to bifolding systems. The article discusses merging indoor and outdoor areas with the use of frameless or slim framed systems, maximising the amount of natural light in the internal living spaces.
Although this is a fixed solution being compared to a structural opening, glass walls can be a great way to integrate a biophilic architectural design. The large panes of glass can stretch from floor to ceiling, following an oversized glazing theme or to make a dramatic design statement.
Perfectly suited to countryside or coastal projects, glass walls offer completely unobstructed views with little to no limitations on size or shape. With thermally broken fixing details, glass wall installations are thermally efficient as well as the epitome of elegant.
