5 REasons why sliding patio doors are better
Whilst bifolding doors and even the latest steel-look patio doors remain incredibly popular for property renovations, the sliding doors in London we fit have several benefits other types of patio doors can’t provide. Here are XX of the best
1 Larger panel sizes
No other patio door provides panel sizes as large as a sliding door. With sizes of up to 3m wide or more with some products, there’s no better door for creating a wall of glass. So if a wide and expansive patio door is what you want in your home, sliding doors deliver. As well as this, the sliding door heights typically go taller than French doors or bifolding doors too.
2 More light and better views
Again down to the larger panel sizes, you get bigger panes of glass. As a result the feeling of space in your room is better as are the views out to your garden. In fact, if you’re choosing between a bifold or a slider, and your home has a great garden or views, sliding doors let you enjoy it better even when closed.
3 Less visible aluminium
While aluminium provides substantially slimmer sightlines than PVCu or timber doors, no other patio door type gives you less of these too. Take a typical 4-metre opening, new or existing. Bifolding doors in a four panel need three visible mullions. Patio French doors need the same. A two panel sliding door gives you just one central slim mullion. A three panel door has two. Therefore, where fewer aluminium profiles matter, again sliding doors provide a solution.
4 light and smooth action
The advanced design of all modern sliding doors means effortless and finger light operation. In fact, some sliding doors literally glide and you can move them with one hand or a few fingers. As a result, they’re family-friendly and easy for both elderly and younger members of your family to use.
5 The latest technology and designs
The latest generation of aluminium in sliding doors is highly insulated. This insulation combined with high specification glass, and more of it, create super energy-efficient doors, helping you lower your heating bills. At the same time these grand sliders or even a smaller set are very secure thanks to multiple locking points. With safety glass as standard and designed to prevent prising open or lifting off their frame, there incredibly secure too.
So now you’ve got the benefits, let us look at some of our installations of sliding patio doors in London. With many of our doors fitted in ongoing building projects, you’ll see a mix of finished projects or those still under construction.
Contemporary Grey sliding doors in a modern house extension
Grey is one of the most popular colours for aluminium sliding doors and these doors using our Visoglide product come in a dark RAL 7016 finish. These particular doors feature the 35mm mullion and come in the popular two panel design, giving larger glass panels. Even better with these doors is the double track. As a result, you’ve got the option of opening either the left or the right panel, to suit your requirements.
Finally, the lift and slide operation provides even better functionality with contrasting satin stainless steel handles against the modern grey colour.
Internal sliding doors as a partition screen
How about fitting sliding doors inside the home? This installation of slimline sliding patio doors in London are designed as partition screens and closing off two separate rooms. And to provide privacy, the safety glass in the doors is obscure. As these are internal doors, the threshold is also set lower so there’s less risk of tripping as you go between the rooms, through the doors.
Ultra-slim patio doors with a 20mm mullion
The 20mm mullion on sliding doors is one of the most popular choices. It’s the best way of getting even thinner sliding doors.
