Use light to open up space and maximise wellbeing

Ultra slim-framed sliding and pivot doors, rooflights, bay windows and glass boxes can all play a part in creating bright and healthy interiors for building occupants

Architects have long harnessed natural light to make interiors feel vibrant and spacious. Light has the power to open up every kind of space, smoothing down sharp corners and angles to create clear lines of sight.

Open up the curtains in the morning and natural light instantly makes a room - and those in it - feel brighter. It can transform otherwise dark rooms, making them feel bigger and more welcoming.

How do Maxlight’s products work to create light?

All products are manufactured to Maxlight’s high standard of design. Everything is made to measure with minimal frames so that, wherever possible, no light is blocked out.

Maxlight Oriel Bay windows have no mechanical fixings - their 90-degree corners are frameless. Its pivot doors use a unique mechanism requiring no hinges. Each piece is designed to function seamlessly, without compromising light levels.

From its original ultra-slim aluminium sliding doors to its pivot doors, rooflights, bay windows and glass boxes, each piece is created from scratch by a team of talented draftsmen and women at Maxlight's London workshop.

Maxlight: myriad solutions for individual projects

Maxlight products are available in an unrivalled choice of colours and coatings and its designers can work with specifiers to identify and create solutions for individual projects.

Want something elegant, classic and in-keeping with a traditional house design? Maxlight's sliding doors and bay windows transform spaces while complementing a building’s original structure.

If you want to go bold, its glass boxes are particularly visually striking. These are bespoke-built structures that incorporate Maxlight glass sliding doors, windows and rooflights into one solid box, letting boundless light into any space.

Maxlight doors can be powder coated to any standard RAL colour in a matt, satin or gloss finish. There are 188 colours to choose from - 22 more than the industry standard. Non-standard finishes are also available.

Maxlight: safe and secure

All Maxlight products lock with a key as opposed to a latch or thumb turn and its inbuilt deadlocks can be operated by key from either side.

For sliding doors, there are two different locking options: the original bottom lock with its slim 56mm profile or an innovative 100mm side lock with a PAS24-certified multiple locking system.

Whatever your project, Maxlight can help you make the most of your design because it understands the transformative power of light.
