Brio® on the cover of Window & Door magazine
16th January 2012
Window & Door magazine in the US selected a photograph of a high end renovation project in Melbourne featuring Brio hardware to use on its Jan-Feb 2012 cover.
Melbourne based architect Marc Dixon designed the renovation and explains the background to the project in Box Hill Victoria.
"The family enjoy a barbecue. Our client maintains the kitchen as the centre of activity. The new open plan design unlocks the kitchen to maximise the space. Brio is a leader in hardware for sliding and folding doors, a company that could achieve what was needed. I selected a 3 panel sliding door with Brio Single Run top hung straight sliding door hardware. This did the job, and opened up 60% of the opening of the door face.
The 3 sliding panel can be put into any position. I selected the Brio 612 Retractable Pleated Insect Screen to run the full width of the opening, so it can screen regardless of where the sliding door panels are.
The Brio 612 Screen, has the widest width on the market and can screen where others cannot. The opening is 6.6 metres wide, so I specified Brio, it was the best choice for the job. By using a Brio screen the family did not have to live with a big ugly retracting box to conceal the screen mesh. The site provided little opportunity to conceal a box, so I was thankful that with the Brio screen I didn’t have to worry about it."
