Bespoke to your household needs

Lift and slide doors offer a huge amount of glass so can be used in wide span areas and also work in the smallest and most awkward of spaces, so if you’re worried that they won’t fit your home, they can be tailored to the layout of your property. This is because the doors slide rather than fold or swing inwards and outwards. Balconies, small patios, or other small spaces can be drastically transformed into an open, usable space with a sliding door.

Whether you are replacing current doors or fitting into a new opening, it’s worth considering your threshold and floor levels as it is one of the first steps to stop draughts from entering your home. To achieving a seamless link between your outdoor and indoor area, you can ask your builder to set the threshold at a specific position to coincide with your inside flooring, decking, slabs, or patio.

Endless design options

Available in more than 400 RAL colours, lift and slide patio doors offer ultimate design flexibility so you can choose the perfect shade to complement the exterior of your home. There’s also the option to choose from a special aïrcoat paint that offers a textured, dirt and scratch resistant finish, creating an even more durable, low maintenance door. To take the colour choices one step further, there is the option for a dual colour lift and slide patio door, where you can have one inside your home and another outside.
