Anyone in any doubt about blending contemporary styling into a traditional surrounding need only ask Paul Vajda. He’s one of Apeer’s R&D engineers who not only worked on the original designs for the company’s Modo contemporary door collection but has also had one installed into his own home in Ballymena, where it suits the traditional dormer bungalow style perfectly.
The modern composite door with its feature stainless steel glazing trim, contrasted by the choice of Chartwell green, gives the home a distinctive look compared with others in the area
“The door is quite unique,” said Paul, “It is completely flush with a very contemporary feel that I really like. It also has a large glazed area so lets a lot of light into the hallway.”
Apeer Marketing Manager Linda Tomb added: “Paul’s choice makes the point perfectly that the clean lines of a contemporary door can look just as much at home in any surrounding whatever the style and vintage of the building. Paul’s home is a perfect example but there are many others, as many of our trade customers can testify.
The Modo collection is based on the popular Apeer70 composite door range and so offers the same assurance of weather resistance, energy efficiency and security. Apeer70 comes in two collections, Traditional and Contemporary. Modo is a premium contemporary variant featuring the distinctive stainless steel glazing trim as an alternative to the more usual GRP trim.
Paul and his R&D colleagues are one reason why Apeer has kept ahead of the market through a string of innovative product launches, starting in 2003 with the best double rebate GRP composite door available, all the way to this year’s launch of the radically different seamless Lumi window and door system. Lumi, the brainchild of Apeer’s visionary Managing Director Asa McGillian has already proved to be a showstopper at its unveiling at Grand Designs Live in London with a repeat performance at the Birmingham event.
