Ladies Lake | St Andrews | Gray & Dick were contracted to provide minimal frameless glazing and Sky-Frame doors all around the property.

How Sky-Frame windows and doors can enhance your home

Windows and doors are a practical necessity which enable the flow of space, sound, light and air within a house, and they are also a design choice that is an expression of your taste and creativity. Hence, their appearance is extremely important in asserting your home’s overall ambience and desired ‘look’.

Sky-Frame

Sky-Frame is a newly developed system from established Swiss company R&G Metallbau AG for frameless, large-surface sliding doors and windows. Cleverly, they can be installed flush against the walls, ceiling and floors, so that only a 20mm vertical glazing bar where two sections overlap is visible of the frame. From inside, this enables unimpeded panoramic views to the outside world, and a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors.

As a quality solution to any project, Sky-Frame windows and sliding doors are regularly used in large-scale commercial projects to great effect. However, Sky-Frame also provides a multitude of aesthetic and practical benefits within the home setting too.

Aesthetic

The aesthetic advantages of Sky-Frame are unrivaled. Exposed panes of smooth, polished glass provide an elegant and distinguished exterior. The absence of clunky frames also make for unobstructed views to the world beyond. 

Not only do sliding glass doors make homes look and feel more contemporary, they are also the perfect finishing touch to any modern housing project. They can also be used to modernise older styles of architecture, for example within bespoke glazed extensions that incorporate the unique Sky-Frame system.

Practical

Sky-Frame sliding doors also offer many practical benefits, too. The lack of a frame distributes external light more evenly across the room, making the interior space feel airier and larger. The simple, ‘unfussy’ look inherent to glass also means that it rarely clashes with its surroundings, making it a classic, yet current addition to most environments.

As well as meeting the highest standards for thermal insulation and safety, the tracks for Sky-Frame sliding doors are unobtrusively embedded at floor level, making them both wheelchair-friendly and barrier-free.
