British company Maxlight specialises in bespoke architectural glazing systems.

Its solutions include ultra slim sliding doors and windows that bring the outside in, glazed extensions, glass walkways, roofs and balustrades that offer elegant links between spaces and oriel bay windows that enhance the enjoyment of a building: glazing for every setting - indoors and out. 

All of Maxlight’s profiles are thermally broken to prevent cold bridging and designed to keep properties cosy and warm.

The glazing system is made up of a 10mm thick outer pane of glass with a 14mm argon gas spacer and a 6mm inner pane, which means maximum strength and minimal heat transfer.

All Maxlight glass is toughened to be four times stronger than standard annealed glass, so each piece is robust enough to withstand anything day-to-day life can throw at it.

Maxlight designs, manufactures and installs its high quality products to operate perfectly. Its three-metre tall pivot doors require careful attention to detail so that they operate smoothly at installation and for years to come.

The company prides itself on its expert design and superior engineering and clear communication with clients, architects, builders and others ensures good results.

Maxlight is able to deliver UK-wide projects from its London headquarters, which houses a show home and workshop where the company's suite of ultra-slim aluminium sliding doors and other lines are constructed. 

Each Maxlight piece aims to create maximum light using minimum frames and all are designed, built and crafted on-site.

As a result, lead times are among the best in the business.
