Aluminium Sliding patio doors


Aluminium sliding patio doors have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in the last 6-8 years. Improvements in materials, energy efficiency and manufacturing, with super slim frames and high security have contributed significantly to this rise in popularity.

Intruders can’t lift them off their runners like they used to in the 1970s, new versions from The Window Sanctuary actually have anti-lift blocks top and bottom to prevent this – which of course, is also a safety feature.

Modern aluminium sliding patio doors require no maintenance and come in a range of over 200 RAL colours. Anthracite grey is very popular at the moment for example, and the colour options and versatility of sliding patio doors are why homeowners are choosing them over other options when giving their home a make-over or modernising houses.

Another reason sliding patio doors are a superb option is because people want more glass area to open up the room and invite the outside in. Modern decorating is about how slim you can get things. With modern aluminium sliding patio doors you can go up over 2 metres wide in a single leaf, whereas with bi-folding doors, you can only go up to 1.2m wide. Consequently, sliding patio doors have less frame material and look more minimalistic.

Sliding patio doors are compact, unlike bi-fold doors which take up space to stack them to one side when open.
