Steve Butler of Toadhole Investments says that the title of the site dates back to the 17th Century. He added that a “decision was based on wanting open up the end of the café extension into the south-facing patio area. SunSeeker provided a cost-effective, attractive solution.”
SunSeeker UltraSlim Doors are double-glazed sliding doors with a difference – they can be installed across an opening of several metres and be pushed out of the way to the side of the opening, leaving virtually the whole aperture accessible for walking through. Retractable UltraSlim doors enable areas inside and outside to blend almost seamlessly.
When closed, the UltraSlim frames around the glass allow maximum natural light to flow inside. There is standard access via a traditional pivot opening door or doors, as required.
