A bay window for maximum brightness
Who says aluminum says finesse. This is more and more true: manufacturers are trying to create joinery as discreet as possible in order to leave the window to the light, so to the light. It's also a matter of aesthetics: the current design is clean. The profiles can be curved, but the trend is to choose them rights for a result again more contemporary. To accentuate this effect of modernity and increase the contribution of light, you can opt for sliding doors with hidden opening.

The partitioning is considered in the framework of a new construction or during a major renovation. No big work in prospect? The brand Millet to the solution with its sliding wall "M3D.s": the leaves (one, two or four) dislocate to slide along the wall. Result, a bay whose width varies from 1.50 to 6 m according to the project, giving in any case a maximum opening to the outside.

A bay window with motorization for easy handling
Equipped with a double or triple glazing, panoramic sliding bay can be complicated to handle because of its weight. For large projects, you can choose an integrated motorization system at the bay, with a silent sliding about 15 cm per second. In the presence of an obstacle, the movement of the leaf stops and triggers a return. Another possibility: the lifting slider. This mechanism allows, when closing the window, to retract the guide rollers to protect them. It is only when the handle is operated that the bay lifts to slide. It is thus possible to maneuver easily leaves of 3.10 m long and 2.80 m high.
