Setting the scene

Creating an easy indoor-outdoor flow was a key requirement for TV builder John Cocks when he renovated his own house for the My House My Castle programme. Rylock satin anodised joinery fitted the bill

It is always interesting to see the materials and products builders choose for their own homes. And it is even more significant when that builder happens to be a familiar face on TV, and his home is being renovated for a programme.

When John Cocks remodelled his house for the My House My Castle programme, he specified Rylock satin anodised aluminium joinery. A large, 5.4m-wide opening to the deck features slider doors from Rylock's Atlantic Suite commercial-grade joinery well suited to residential projects.

Other new joinery in the house includes Foldback® bifold doors, louvred windows and Eurosliders® from Rylock's residential Pacific Suite. All the doors feature flush sills, which enhance the streamlined look, and are designed to avoid a build-up of dirt in the tracks. The design also ensures the surfaces are easy to maintain.

Adam Bilcich from Rylock Auckland says the joinery features blue-green tinted Eclipse glass from Pilkington Glass.

"The thermal properties of this glass help to keep the heat out in summer, while retaining the warmth inside in winter."
