For this build Alspec’s Carinya aluminium awning windows and sliding and hinged doors were installed with toughened glass, complemented by colour-matched hardware and aluminium mesh flyscreens. While Alspec is well-known for its commercial product ranges, the Carinya windows and doors were specifically developed for the residential market, building on the knowledge gained from commercial applications.
Alspec says the impressive list of efficient and protective features made Carinya windows and doors ideal to fulfil the glazing and framing needs for this project: ‘Not only are they fully energy rated and certified to WERS, the entire range is tested and certified to withstand bushfire conditions up to BAL40 (Bushfire Attack Level), vital in rural areas,’ Rob Edwards, Carinya product manager at Alspec says.
‘The sliding doors also feature integrated endcaps and weather seals to provide protection against penetration by grit, water, air and insects, while enhancing the home’s energy efficiency.’
From the burnished concrete floors to the expansive windows and soaring ceilings, this award-winning design successfully achieved the project’s and client’s goals by delivering a private retreat built with safe, stylish and durable products, nestled unobtrusively into its peaceful rural setting.
