Sliding Doors

Often referred to as patio doors, sliding doors offer a contemporary way of allowing maximum natural light into your home, making the interior brighter and adding a sense of space. When opened they provide a plentiful supply of fresh air.

Providing large expanses of glass with the minimum of framing, sliding doors are the perfect solution when there is a desire for a panoramic, uninterrupted view of the outdoors.

As well as offering easy access to your garden or terrace, sliding doors are ideal where space is limited – since the doors slide horizontally, and are commonly used as a partition between the house and a balcony or conservatory.

Available in aluminium or PVCu, our range of premium sliding doors offer unrivalled levels of performance.

Aluminium Sliding Doors

We offer four premium quality aluminium sliding door systems – AluK, Dutemänn Glide-S, Reynaers, and Schüco.

Key features include:

  • Robust, slim aluminium sections are used to minimise sight lines – with panel interlock widths as low as 42mm – thereby maximising the glass area and visibility when the doors are closed
  • Impressive maximum width and height options available – the Dutemänn Glide-S can achieve an unrivalled maximum panel width of 3350mm and maximum height of 3200mm, making it possible to span an opening of 6.7 metres with just two sashes
