Come On Barbie, Let’s Go Party

When Aperture Luxury Doors received an invitation to create a party atmosphere for Knutsford council’s family fun day in August, the company responded by creating a Barbie themed window display at its town centre showroom.

Inspired by the door shown on the FIT Show stand for the launch of The Residence Door Collection by Apeer, earlier this year, a specially produced pink entrance door featuring a heart-shaped glazing cassette, was highlighted by bold, pink Barbie-themed window graphics.

Aperture Doors’ Lillie Pragnell says: “Knutsford Council organises a number of events in the town centre and we always try and participate. With the Barbie movie just being shown in cinemas at the time we decided to have fun and create this display.

“We only had a few days’ notice and Apeer responded really quickly to supply us with the special pink door with the heart-shaped glass cassette, to produce a door that Barbie herself would be proud of.”



Aperture Luxury Doors set up in the Cheshire town just four months ago as a spin-off from another glazing firm located in Middlewich run by Pragnell and business partner and husband Doug Carter. She adds: “Knutsford is a very lively, wealthy town and we chose a number of luxury brands appropriate for local homeowners who are used to choosing the finer things in life. In addition to other high-end brands and despite an emphasis on doors, we feature The Residence Collection windows in our showroom and of course, The Residence Door Collection by Apeer.”

The door collection is a range of twenty styles including traditional, contemporary, and stable door designs, in nine standard colours. Doors are presented in a 120mm format, with U values from as low as 0.51 W/m2K, with every door in the range below 0.75 W/m2K. Glass units, where relevant, are 78mm quadruple sealed units as standard. Construction is of GRP skins around a high-density PU core, reinforced with aluminium anti-cut through security mesh.
