Slim Timber Frames

The Carminati Skyline range is a selection of timber windows and doors exclusively available to IQ Glass within the UK. These timber doors have been designed by expert joiners, Carminati, based in Italy.

With elegantly square timber frames these inward opening doors offer a new approach to hinged door specification. The timber frames are available in Pine or Oak and can then be finished in a catalogue of oils or stains to generate the timber appearance that you want.

As the doors are inward opening the external timber frame can be hidden delicately behind the external building finishes. Alternatively finish the external face of the door with an aluminium frame, flush glass or exposed timber profiling.

Modern Take on Timber Doors

The frames of the Carminati Skyline door are compact and robust, taking advantage of the years of experience Carminati have in joinery and timber design.

Each timber profile slots neatly together to create an graceful timber frame with square edges and soft lines. Each hinged door can be up to 3m tall and come with a highly secure lever/lever handle and euro cylinder key lock.

Any of our specialist glazing options can be integrated into the timber framing including low iron glass, solar control glass and specialist decorative finishes. If you would prefer a solid door structure then we can integrate a solid timber panel into the door design instead.

Framing Finishes

The timber profiles are available in either Oak or Pine with various stains and oils able to be applied. We have a catalogue of available finishes that you can view at our showroom in Amersham. Below are standard finishes available:

Oak available in Natural Effect / Light Walnut / Dark Walnut

Pine available in White RAL 9010 / Loft Plissee / Loft Tango

Externally the timber frames can be clad with aluminium which can be powder coated any RAL colour. Or we can step the external pane of glass over the timber frame and back paint it black for a flush glazed design.

Frame Sizes

The Carminati Skyline range is available in two profile depths to allow for double and triple glazing.

Double glazed systems use the 78 deep series with the 92mm deep system available for triple glazing.

The timber profile is only 60mm wide overall with the venting timber frame 50mm wide. The timber vent sits neatly within the 60mm width.

The frame size if uniform around all edges of the opening door.

The door frame has a standard 15mm rebated frame at the base but a completely flat threshold may be possible on selected projects depending on wind load.

Each door has a Maximum Weight of 150kg. This normally offers you a maximum height of 3m per door and about 1m width per opening. Although larger opening doors may be available on request.
