Some of the systems unique selling points are the completely flush base and the flexibility of use. Since 2010, the 4+ system, designed for bigger installations and heavier loads, has also been developed and become part of the systems stocked by IQ.
The systems have evolved alongside IQ through the years, in 2014 IQ designed a bespoke drainage solution for the minimal windows sliding door system, using a solid neoprene base block. In 2014 we had the minimal windows® system tested for hurricane resistance and as a result, the hurricane-level performance was achieved.
The sleek, frameless aesthetic means that the systems can flatter many building designs, from modern to contemporary, minimal windows are continually adapted and used in a variety of settings.
The award-winning project saw IQ give the listed cottage a linear extension, linking the original building structure with the extension glazing using a frameless glass box link. The glazing was designed with solar gain in mind, to reduce energy use for the property.
From a distance the glazing is virtually transparent, ensuring the setting of the property remained undisturbed despite the creation of a much larger living space.
The now established team are constantly keeping the brand up to date and you can find them across various social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and LinkedIn. You can also find IQ Glass on these online architecture and homebuilding communities Homify and Houzz
The large space was situated on the same estate as various factory and warehouse units, making it a great opportunity for the business’ future expansion plans at this time.
Sky House has and will continue to expand and modernise alongside the company.
The units, on the industrial estate located next to Sky House, became a fabrication factory designed with our specific fabrication needs in mind. The amount of space has required expansion as the business grew, at present Sieger factory & warehouse occupies 4 units within the industrial estate.
Having a team of fully trained in-house experts plays an integral part in the seamless process IQ provides from enquiry to installation. The Sieger Systems® team being so close helps the company give accurate lead times and run smoothly with constant communication.
Bays are occupied by various solutions that IQ can work alongside, such as Indigozest, a smart solution for home automation. The smart systems can be integrated into homes and used in conjunction with numerous IQ products for a fully automated, personalised finish. The Sky House Design Centre is also home to the IQ Furniture division.
The design centre’s potential was quickly realised by architects and professionals alike, with the local Mayor even attending the grand opening event. At present, the Sky House Design Centre is recognised as the largest interior design showroom in the UK.
The hour-long episode first outlined the homeowners' vision and expectations before documenting how the vision was realised.
The result was a breathtaking riverside home, expansive views enhanced using frameless structural glazing and a visual illusion that the upper floor is floating.
HIRT Swiss descending windows disappear completely (into a specialist ‘parking room’ below the ground) leaving a completely flush base for ease of use.
The systems run with an almost silent motor and can easily be suspended mid or part way, creating partitions or half walls to suit any occasion.
When closed the glass system becomes a minimal clear glass facade, in keeping with IQ’s aesthetic and flawless standards.
The London based series, first aired in 1996, sees investigations into various crimes. The programme featured Treeside as the set of a crime scene in 2019, granting the television worthy status to the Surrey new build.
Throughout the luxury home, structural glazing was used, featuring ‘show stopping’ sliding doors that stretch from the basement to the top floor, creating the floor to ceiling glass facades across the ground and top floors.
The residential home is flooded with natural light in the day and softly lit to maximise the uninterrupted views at night, making it the perfect location for filming the day and night time scenes shown in Silent Witness.
The refurbishment will see IQ utilise the office and showroom space and will, of course, incorporate masses of free-flowing natural light.
Keep an eye on our social media channels for further updates on the 2020 refurb, we can’t wait to reveal the final result!
