The Rise of Black Ash: Eurocell's Trend-Setting Case Study

15 April 2015

Black ash is the new white

A North-West couple have joined the increasing number of aspirational homeowners choosing to ‘bring the outside in’ with an Aspect panoramic door from Eurocell.

Two 6m installations of Aspect bi-fold doors in Black Ash with Satin Silver hardware colour were chosen by the homeowners to add a stunning centre piece to their large detached property.

Eurocell, supplied the product via its fabricator Warwick Developments, based in Bootle, Liverpool.

After researching other bi-fold doors the owner and his wife decided that Aspect had the best aesthetics and overall value for money. They had considered an aluminium system but felt that Aspect offered the same features and more, but for much less money.
Both Aspect bi-fold doors were installed alongside each other at the rear of the house to create a 12m opening, separated only by a structural support column in the centre. The finished result is a stunning alfresco kitchen and living area that looks out onto the large patio and garden.

The ultra slim frames on Aspect and elimination of the dummy mullion maximise the area of glass so that even when the doors are closed the 12m span means that the inside of the house continues to be bathed in natural daylight.

As well as recognising that Aspect offered unbeatable aesthetics, the homeowner particularly liked the ultra stylish D-handles, which are unique to Eurocell and allow the doors to fold back flatter. This allows unimpeded views onto the garden and makes the patio feel as though it is part of the kitchen and living room.

All these benefits have resulted in Aspect changing the perception of PVC-U bi-fold doors, helped by a choice of 11 frame colours to suit every style of property, including Black Ash and Grey for contemporary aesthetics. Hardware colours are White, Black, Satin Silver, Silver Grey, Bright Chrome and Champagne.

Homeowners needn’t concern themselves with fuel bills either as Aspect is available double glazed with
a U-value performance of up to 1.3Wm2/K, or triple glazed with a U-value of 0.9Wm2/K. The double glazed option was specified for the featured property.

The owner of this property said: “We researched other bi-fold ranges but Aspect appealed to us because of its stunning aesthetics and the fact it offered so many unique features. As the kitchen and living room are at the heart of our home, we wanted to create a more open and accessible space which our family can make the most of. Aspect’s security features and energy efficiency were the best we’d come across and we are over the moon with the finished result!”

The Eurocell Aspect bi-fold door system meets both BS6375 and BS: PAS24, the British Standard for enhanced security performance of door assemblies, along with PAS23 general performance and weather tightness.

Chris Coxon, Head of Marketing at Eurocell, said: “The slim sight lines and high-end aesthetics of Aspect were ideal for this stunning property. It allowed them to bring the outside in and truly integrate the patio and garden area into their home, very much in keeping with their stylish, open-plan property. Aspect’s bespoke sizing capabilities allowed them to completely open up their main living space and create a frame for their beautiful garden.”

Aspect is suitable for a maximum opening of 6m wide x 2.3m high. Colours include those offered as part of the ever popular Eurocell Eurologik profile system, allowing customers to create a perfectly co-ordinated look across doors, windows and roofline.
