A new home in the coastal suburb of Trigg in Perth, WA is a veritable showcase for Carinya’s extensive range of commercial-quality window and door framing solutions.
Banking on the brand’s credentials in the commercial environment, Carinya products provide an affordable option without compromising quality or performance for the residential build environment. Used widely across developments from multi-unit residential buildings to high-end homes, the Carinya product line delivers impressive performance to meet acoustic, energy and cyclonic environmental requirements.
Designed by AMG Architects, the Trigg residence features Carinya windows and doors to deliver a sophisticated and well-protected home.
For openable windows, Carinya Classic awning windows were selected in the premium 92mm frame option. Featuring designer bevelled edges and wide sashes, the windows add a distinctly modern style to the home’s exterior, with the wide sash also providing a stable base for chain winders, which can be installed with either a standard or restricted opening. All Carinya sashes feature a commercially based aluminium corner stake combined with screw fixings, resulting in an extremely strong and durable sash.
Carinya Classic fixed windows, which feature similar styling and technical specifications, were also selected for the Trigg home.
A Carinya Select hinged door was selected for the laundry area. Combining an 85mm wide face and a generous 125mm frame, the Carinya door has a visually balanced finish while also easily accommodating screening. The flexible design allows hardware to be selected from a large range of options, depending on the client’s preferences. While Carinya hinged doors are ideal for new residential builds, they are also often used in renovation projects; options also include sidelights, glass louvres and screening for security or insect protection.
Carinya Classic sliding doors were specified for accessing the outdoor balconies on the upper level. Similar to the Carinya windows, the doors feature a modern look while including important performance features such as end caps that conceal all cavities to protect the home’s interior from insects, dust and dirt, as well as internally concealed weather flaps to reduce air and water infiltration.
The proprietary Alspec roller system used in the Carinya doors is the same as those in Alspec’s commercial ranges. The roller system comes in two options: general use (up to 80kg per panel) and heavy duty (for double glazing loads up to 160kg per panel). The commercially designed hardware, which accompanies the doors, also ensures durability and secure operation.
Access to the outdoor entertainment and pool area on the ground level has been provided by ProGlide high performance sliding doors. ProGlide doors can span large spaces, allowing the indoor and outdoor living areas to be integrated or separated as required with their full-height floor to ceiling openings. Similar to the Carinya range, ProGlide doors have been built with Australia’s climatic extremes in mind, featuring high weather performance specifications that allow designers to achieve demanding acoustic and thermal specifications.
