Not too cool for pool

It’s that age-old problem. If you’re wanting to create seamless sense of space between your poolhouse and your garden, bigger is always better. But then, what do you do about the weight? Luckily, Reynaers has already thought of that, with its Hi-Finity thin framed glass cladding, that can hold a glass pane of up to 1,200kg in weight, such as at this house in Ukkel, Belgium; offering generous views out to anyone performing a front crawl in nothing but their budgie smugglers.  The cactus sitting there in the corner needn’t worry either; the system offers  u-values as low as 1.0W/m2K, depending on the frame/ vent combination.
