Sliding Patio Doors
Sliding patio doors are ideal for maximising views and providing great functionality. They generally consist of two individual panels, one sliding behind the other on hidden rollers, with a smooth and easy operation.
Sliding glass doors not only allow lots of natural light to flood into a room. They are also great for freeing-up floor space around the doorway, as the movable door isn’t hinged. Therefore, it doesn’t need an area to swing into.
On multi-panelled patio sliding doors, moveable panels can be combined with fixed ones, providing access in the most convenient location for the functionality of the property.
Key benefits of sliding patio doors

High security – Our sliding patio doors are manufactured with double or triple glazing and sophisticated lock mechanisms for a multi-tiered level of protection against intruders.
Flexibility and convenience – You no longer need to worry about the proximity of furniture to doors, because sliding doors do not require clearance. So you can maximise your living space.

What is the standard size for a sliding patio door?
When it comes to height, patio doors are typically 80 inches, 82 inches or 96 inches, depending on the doorway of the property. As for width, this will of course be dependent on the type of door required. Common widths for two-panel sliding doors are 5, 6 or 8 feet. Standard widths for three-panel doors meanwhile are 9 or 12 feet.
How long do sliding glass doors last?
If professionally fitted, the best quality sliding doors have been known to last for decades. However, the lifespan of the door will of course depend on how often it is used and how well it has been maintained. It’s best practice to stop debris from building up in the tracks of the door and lubricate the runners occasionally.
What is the best lubricant for sliding glass doors?
The best lubricant to use for sliding doors is a silicone spray. This deters dust and dirt particles from building up on the roller wheels and track, which can help extend the lifespan of the doors.
