How much do aluminium sliding patio doors cost?

Posted on 23.11.2022

Our aluminium sliding patio doors are manufactured to carry large expanses of glass within a slim, robust aluminium frame. The doors are available in a wide range of configurations and the strength of aluminium allows us to fabricate a door that is lightweight and slides smoothly, from side to side, with ease.

How much do aluminium sliding patio doors cost?

The cost is dependent on several factors, see below:

  1. Size of panes – bigger panes will be more expensive
  2. Type of glass – i.e double glazed, triple glazed or obscure
  3. Aperture size – the size of wall opening will determine how many panes are needed
  4. Configurations – how many panes are required?
  5. Colour – i.e standard or non-standard colour?
  6. Additional security – upgraded locking system/toughened glass will increase the cost

When we are putting together a quotation for you, we will go through all these points in detail to ensure that we specify a door which is best suited to your property and personal taste.

Why install aluminium sliding patio doors?


Aluminium sliding patio doors look stunning in any property, whether it be commercial, residential, contemporary, or traditional. Slim sightlines and large expanses of glass means unobscured views of your garden, patio, or terrace and offers a seamless transition between the inside and outside. Available in a wide range of colours and with hardware options to choose from, our sleek and stylish doors are not only beautiful, but functional too.

Benefits of aluminium sliding patio doors

Our aluminium sliding patio doors offer a wide range of benefits. Firstly, they look great, and they also bring a huge amount of natural daylight into your home. The room will appear brighter and airy, and they don’t take up space.  As they are manufactured from extremely high strength aluminium, you can benefit from slimmer frames and larger expanses of glass.

Aluminium doors require little maintenance, just a wipe down using warm soapy water (do not use abrasive cloths or solvent based cleaning products) and a brush to remove debris in the tracks. The strength of the material itself combined with market leading multi-point locking systems will stop unwanted intruders forcing open the door.

All doors are PAS 24 accredited, which means the doorset has been tested to the latest UK security standard and for additional peace of mind you can upgrade to Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative that improves the security of buildings.

Important considerations

If you are installing sliding doors, you will need to consider the material used to ensure that they are resistant to wear and tear and have a long lifespan. It’s also important to take into account the security levels and the options to upgrade, and finally your budget, as this will determine the number of panes and their size.
