How to Improve Natural Light in Narrow Properties
Large sliding glass doors have long been a staple of contemporary residential architecture for their large expanses of glass and near frameless sightlines.

A recent project completed in Worcestershire by IQ Glass incorporates the exclusive minimal windows 4+ sliding door system to the rear of the extension. Surrounding the near frameless glass cladded zinc panels create a stark contrast between the traditional brick and the new.
IQ’s large sliding glass doors wrap around three faces of the extension opening at each corner to take advantage of the endless views.

When the sliding doors are viewed as open you can really see the indoor outdoor effect that the step-less track offers the minimal windows 4+ system.

These huge panels not only look fantastic, maintaining minimal vertical sightlines, creating a flush floor finish and hiding all external framing, but offer the highest thermal performance available, a Uw value of only 0.8 W/m2K.

Fully tested at Rosenheim in Germany, the sliding glass doors reached the highest class in water resistance, air permeability and resistance to wind meaning that these beautiful glass items can also be used on properties under the harshest environments in the UK.

IQ Glass UK are the only warrantied company in the UK able to offer a fully guaranteed minimal windows and minimal windows 4+ installation – don’t be fooled by copycat products.
