Recently there has been an increase in the demand for outdoor living areas. According to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Home Design Trends Survey in 2014, 63% reported increased popularity amongst American homeowners to create outdoor living spaces. New Zealand homeowners are no different.
Creating an outdoor alfresco room is a great way to add space to homes, maximise the use of outdoor balcony areas — despite the weather, and increase the value of a property.
Unex has partnered with Clear Edge Glass Systems to offer Alfresco Glass Screens. To create a useable room all year round, these are fully retractable — even around corners. They are most commonly used in residential applications to enclose alfresco rooms, pool houses, outdoor entertaining areas, and even in apartment balconies. They can also be used in some non-residential applications, such as shop fronts, conference centres, etc.
With the Alfresco Glass Screens, users enjoy uninterrupted views with no visual obstructions because the glass panes are supported by the aluminium tracks in the roof and floor. The glass panes slide along the track, pivot at the exit point and then completely stack away to the side.
All in all, Alfresco Glass Screens by Clear Edge is a great system to enhance outdoor living spaces, so that outdoors areas can be enjoyed any day, any season.
