Following the architectural design, our company was engaged to assist in the practicalities of manufacturing a frame of this magnitude. Our involvment commenced at footing stage to create rebate sizes into the concrete slab required to accommodate the sill size.

Apart from the sheer size and shape of the frame, the joinery was required to incorporate concealed steel structural posts into the mullions and fixed door.

The positioning of steel posts and lintels were advised by our company prior to installation and subsequent manufacturing of the joinery.

Incorporating the threaded steel rods running through the head, mullions and transom added to the complexity. These rods were welded to the lintel above to support the weight of the oversized transom.

Mullions and daylight sizes of the large sliding frame were required to align with joinery on the first level which had yet to be manufactured.

200 factory manufacturing hours followed by 100 installation hours by our site team required logistical skill and attention to fine detail. A real team effort.

Homeowner's Comment

McNaughton's were a pleasure to deal with. They were the only joiners willing to take on a project of this size and they supported our architect, Hamish Stirat of Fabricate, during the design and specification phase. Their site installation team were flawless and we have already recommended them.
