Medland Manor, Exeter

Client: private contractor
Fabricator: MPS Glass & Window Centre Ltd
Type of works: supply of Comar 6 and 7P.i HSD for modern glass pavilion.

Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems, with their approved fabricator MPS Glass Ltd, supplied aluminium for an ultra-modern glass pavilion, which was recently a featured project on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.

The build was in two parts: a cottage, which maintained the vintage charm for the elevation in Medland Manor and the second part in the walled garden, which was a modernist glass pavilion. The new pavilion is made almost entirely of glass housed in slim elegant Comar framing.

Because of Comar systems’ outstanding design and aluminium’s inherent strength, the framing is capable of containing large panes of glass in slim 50mm frames.

The large sliding doors were created by using the comprehensive Comar 7P.i HSD system. This system incorporates Comar’s trademarked P.i. thermal efficiency; the profiles are extruded separately then rolled together with a 20mm polyamide strip. With this amount of glass the excellent thermal properties of Comar 7P.i HSD were, therefore, a key factor in specification. The robust system, with its engineered design, ensures that the sliding doors operate smoothly and will stand the test of time.

Comar 7P.i HSD can be used to create two to four pane sliding patios, with the added bonus of dual colour - the inside and the outside framing can be polyester powder coated to different colours. This opens up a wealth of design opportunities for the creative client and architect.
