Architectural innovation is closely tied to technology new products, techniques and materials provide more opportunities for freedom of expression.

High-performance door and window joinery is one such element helping to transform contemporary house design, as this project demonstrates. The house, by architect Bart Meo, features segmented aluminium windows and extra-large sliding doors from the APL high-performance Metro Series, from Able Aluminium.

The joinery complements another key architectural feature custom-moulded aluminium roofing panels with a radiused edge that floats above the double-height interior living space.

Able Aluminium also supplies APL's extensive range of Vantage joinery products, with designs to suit all architectural styles. APL aluminium profiles are constantly updated to reflect changing trends and requirements.

Effortless functionality is assured. Doors and windows are easy to open and close, thanks to innovations such as the Vantage bottom roller system, which carries the weight of the door on the sill, rather than the top of the frame.
