Silvelox Ritz Random

Homebuilding & Renovating Show – Harrogate – 2019

We are exhibiting with Silvelox luxury garage doors in Harrogate 1-3 November 2019 at Harrogate Convention Centre stand B439

We are partnering again with with Silvelox for the 2019 exhibition where we will be showing one of Silvelox’s luxury garage doors in Harrogate. The door this year will be a Secur Plus, the prestigious manufacturer’s top offering. Secur Plus is an upgraded version of their most popular and well known product Secur. The flagship model has all the high end features of the standard model such as an integrated motor without ceiling tracks, hidden pedestrian door and 85mm thick hardwood panels. Furthermore it has an improved insulation kit and Class 3 security which is what really sets the Secur Plus apart.

The style of the garage door is the Random design which features vertical strips of differing thicknesses. Certainly it’s styles like the Random that give this contemporary aesthetic that are currently the most popular. Due to this trend in 2019 Silvelox have released two new modern designs called Millerighe and Newman. Millerighe which translates to’thousand lines’ is made up of many small equally spaced horizontal or vertical strips. Similarly modern Newman has randomly spaced horizontal and vertical grooves. Constant innovation and commitment to design is what’s kept Silvelox as the world’s leading luxury garage door manufacturer.

Lakes Doors Architectural - Cersaie 2019

Cersaie 2019 – Ceramic Doors

As the amount and versatility of finishes increases on architectural doors ceramics have become a important for high end doors. Lakes Doors Architectural visited the Cersaie 2019 exhibition, one of the largest ceramic exhibitions to see the latest offerings.

Since our installation of the UK’s first porcelain pivot door on our Sevendials project the demand for ceramic doors has grown. Although still a popular choice we have seen porcelain overtake timber as the most purchased finish for luxury entrance doors. The main reason for this is durability as the porcelain slabs don’t fade or deteriorate like timber can.

Our Oikos doors are made using Laminam porcelain slabs and both brands exhibited at Cersaie 2019. At the Laminam stand we were able to how vast their range of styles is. In this quick moving industry Laminam stay at the forefront with both style and performance.

Oikos had an impressive stand which shows how they are at the cutting edge of door design and entrance systems. They had two main products; one door with Laminam to both sides and one with natural marble. We loved the marble from leading brand Antolini who produce the Irish Green finish. Architect Andrea Laudini designed the stunning exhibition space.

Oikos’ new finger scanner that uses similar technology to the iPhone was also on display. The built in scanner is programmed with your smart phone, we expect this will be an important and much requested feature.
