Sandbanks, New Build

Sliding Door
About This Project

Poole new build properties boasts 11 sets of aluminium lift and slide doors

Having installed VueLite products into their previous builds, the developer of these properties were keen to use VueLite products again in their latest project.


The Architectural project of two new ‘Grand Design’ type properties were being built near the coast in Sandbanks, Dorset. The properties were being built to a very high specification, in order for the properties to ‘sell themselves’. The high performance of the VueLite lift and slide doors matched the high specification the developer was looking for, for this property.


Having being built in such a lucrative, elevated area, the lift and slide doors allowed for large walls of glass to be opened and the stunning views all around to be enjoyed whatever the weather.


The angular shapes of the property is complemented perfectly by the angular shapes of the glazing, forming an aesthetically striking piece of architecture. Along with the sliding doors, the VueLite bi-folding doors and windows were also used in this project. Providing floor to ceiling glazing in the majority of the rooms. As well as providing seamless access to the private balconies and gardens, extending living areas to the outside seamlessly.


As well as being able to fully slide the doors open, one of the great benefits the lift and slide door offers, which other patio doors such as bi-folds, French doors or regular sliding doors, doesn’t offer is the ability to securely open the door a little for ventilation and lock it back in place, keeping your property secure, and preventing little ones or pets from being able to get out.


Due to the proximity to the sea, it was important the aluminium windows and doors were protected from the elements and the harsh sea salt. VueLite’s marine specification enhancement protects the aluminium from the elements, Including the handles which are polyester powder coated. This ensures no metal surfaces are exposed to the elements, providing protection in corrosive environments.


The aluminium doors & windows are powder coated in RAL 7037 (dusty grey) which complements the render and cladding of the building perfectly. With the aluminium sightlines almost becoming invisible, allowing the glazing and the view to do the talking.
