As we take care of the manufacturing, you can design your new aluminium sliding patio doors. There are numerous options for you to consider so that you can design a door that complements your Bradford home. We have both standard and non-standard colours available for our aluminium sliding doors, including a dual-colour option.

Choose from our range of stock colours to create a style that’s personal to you. Grey patio doors have without doubt come to be extremely popular in the last few years given the sophisticated look they bring to a home. White patio doors are a close second because of how well they match with most PVCu windows. You also have the option of requesting dual colour e.g. grey on the outside and white on the inside. Other colours are available upon request but may be subject to a minimum order quantity. Please get in touch to discuss. 

The handle for our aluminium patio doors is shaped like a traditional levered handle. The handle allows for easy locking and unlocking through a flexible 90 degree motion.


Hardware Colour Options

Our handles are available in black, white, satin chrome and grey (RAL 7016).

The standard glass unit used in our aluminium sliding patio door is 28mm in depth and is comprised of 4mm toughened clear glass to the outside, a warm edge spacer bar and 4mm toughened clear Low E glass on the inside.

Warm edge spacer bars insulate the edges of a sealed glass unit and separate the panes of glass. Traditionally, spacer bars were made of aluminium, however the warm edge spacer bar used in our glass units is an extruded PVC material specifically designed to reduce transference of heat between the panes of glass keeping more heat inside the property. The spacer bar is available in 3 different colours; grey, black and white. 

Warm Edge Spacer Bars

Two 3mm pieces of glass are put together with a noise reducing interlayer typically 0.8mm thick. This glass offers the dual benefit of noise reduction and security.

Our Venetian integral blinds come in a variety of 10 different colours to complement your chosen frame finish. Integral blinds are available on our complete product range excluding bespoke shapes.

The inclusion of argon gas in to the cavity of a double-glazed unit reduces the heat conductance between the panes. This happens because the gas is 6 times denser that air.

Performance

Improved Insulation Levels

With our aluminium sliding doors, your Bradford home can start to regain some warmth. In the framework, there is a polyamide thermal break that will use the air to create an insulating seal. This break prevents any heat from escaping and keeps it well within your home. We also fit 28mm double glazing in our aluminium sliding doors, with the option to upgrade to triple glazing.

Weather Performance

Earlier door models often fall victim to wear and tear. That is not the case for our aluminium sliding doors. Materials including weather brushes and rubber gaskets will provide Bradford homeowners with superior performance. No matter the time of year, you can reside in your home comfortably, knowing that our aluminium sliding doors keep your home protected.

Slim Sightlines

Our aluminium sliding doors boast slim sightlines, offering you unrivalled views of your Bradford garden. Due to the narrow frame, we can fit a wider glass surface for you to take advantage of. The panoramic views of your garden mean you can appreciate it even more from the inside. The glazing also works by flooding your home with natural light, creating the illusion of more space.

Manufacturing Guarantee

Each of our aluminium sliding patio doors comes with a ten-year manufacturing guarantee. Even after installation, you can feel secure in your Bradford home. In the unlikely case that something were to go wrong, please get in touch with your local Quickslide installer. They will be happy to help and provide you with their professional and impartial advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

There’s a whole wealth of choice when it comes to patio doors. Traditional sliding doors, bi-folding doors and French doors; all available with so many options to choose from. Sliding patio doors are the best option for enjoying a stunning view all year round. Sliding patio doors are as popular as ever with bigger glass areas and, something that often makes them the preferred choice, they’re compact to open and close without requiring space to swing, as with bi-fold and French doors.

As each project is different and every property has different dimensions, we can’t give an exact figure. Our competitive prices are aligned to the specifications of your property and the design that you choose. We have an online design tool so that you can play around with some styles and request a quote.

No. We don’t have any standard patio door sizes. Every door opening varies in size and we therefore make every patio door to the measurements supplied by you. That also means you can add your own finishing touches such as colour, hardware, glass and integral blinds to the doors to create a solution unique to you.

uPVC and aluminium are great frame materials for patio doors. The choice between the two materials often comes down to the existing window and door frames installed in the home. With aluminium you can achieve a contemporary appearance and with our range of uPVC sliding patio doors you can create a traditional timber-looking door. Price also plays an important role with aluminium being the more premium option.

When you’re buying a patio door, first find out if the supplier is able to make the doors to your sizes and specification. Here at Quickslide we offer a made to measure service. If you’re looking to buy a patio door you’ll likely already have an idea of the configuration and style you would like for your door opening and before you go ahead you should make sure the manufacturer is able to achieve this. You should also look for a patio door that has been weather tested to ensure the highest levels of water and wind resistance and air-tightness. If you’re leaning towards an aluminium patio door, make sure it’s thermally broken for the best possible insulation. You should also make a note that patio doors with large glass units should as per building regulations be installed with toughened safety glass. You can rest assured that any Quickslide patio door comes with toughened glass as standard.

It’s difficult to say which patio door is best as it depends on what you’re looking for. Both vinyl and aluminium sliding doors achieve superb performance and both have been rigorously tested to achieve the best in thermal efficiency and security. The key differences between our vinyl and aluminium sliding doors are aesthetics and price, but as a whole both patio doors offer excellent quality. To find out which option is the best one for you, you should summarise your requirements and we’ll be happy to recommend the best patio door for your project.

The number of sliding panels you can have depends on the door configuration. On our aluminium patio doors you have the option of choosing a configuration with two, three of four panels. On sliding doors with two panels, we offer a single-track solution which means only one of the two panels will slide. On doors with three or four panels, we offer a double-track solution enabling you to have two sliding tracks with up to four panels sliding.

You can choose between configurations with two, three or four panels. On configurations with two panels you can choose which of the two you want sliding and which you want fixed to the frame. On configurations with three or four panels you can choose which of the side section(s) you want sliding and/or if you want the middle section(s) to slide.

Yes, patio doors are very secure. As standard our patio doors come with toughened safety glass, which in effect is considered to be shatterproof. On the opening panel you will find a multi-point locking mechanism, which uses different hooks and bolts to secure the sliding panel into it’s locked position. For added peace of mind you have the option of specifying our comprehensive PAS24 security upgrade, which means the doors will meet the high security standards required by building regulations for new builds.

With the right glass unit, sliding patio doors are no less energy efficient than other windows and doors. The aluminium frame we use in the manufacture of our patio doors is thermally broken creating a barrier between the inside and outside sections, which prevents heat loss. A double glazed patio door can achieve a u-value of 1.6W/m2K and with a triple glazed glass unit the doors can achieve a superb u-value of 1.5W/m2K.

You can have any colour you can possibly think of for our patio doors. We stock white and grey profile and are therefore able to offer a speedy turnaround on these two colour options, but if time isn’t of the essence then you have the option of choosing any other colour. For a premium personal touch you can even choose one of our textured finishes, these include shimmer options such as the popular ‘silver’ finish.

As standard the glass unit we use in our patio doors is a toughened double glazed clear unit with argon gas in between the cavity of the unit. We offer other glass upgrades including laminated glass and even obscure glass options. A thermal efficient triple glazed unit is also available upon request.

The outer aluminium frame depth of the patio door is 100mm.

Yes we manufacture all our patio doors in-house at our manufacturing facility in Brighouse, Yorkshire. We have a factory dedicated to aluminium and as aluminium sliding and bi-folding doors continue to increase in popularity we have introduced an aluminium window range for customers wanting their windows to perfectly match their patio doors.

The minimum and maximum sizes for patio doors come down to the overall weight of the panel. The maximum weight of each panel must not exceed 200kg. The maximum height is 2500mm, and the maximum width will vary depending on the specified height of your door.

You can design your new patio door here on our website and request a price. If you require a full service including survey and installation, you can enquire a price via one of our stockists.

The purpose of an external sill is to take any water away from the door, so it doesn’t make its way into your property. If your door is sat directly on the brickwork, you will need a sill because the brickwork is a flat surface. Water won’t go away on its own, so we recommend a sill. If your sliding patio door is installed onto an existing sill made of stone or concrete, this should drain water away on its own without the need for an external sill. We recommend that you discuss this with your installer to ensure that no errors are made during the process.

In most cases the frame and sashes of the aluminium sliding patio door will be supplied fully assembled. On doors up to 3500mm wide we will supply the glass loose with the sashes installed to the frame. Any sliding patio doors above 3500mm wide will be supplied with the sashes loose. Our installation guide will explain in further detail and provide instructions on how to fit the sashes and the glass unit.

Installing patio doors is a complex process and requires experience. If you are an installer and need more information about our products, we have a fantastic installation guide. If you are looking for an installer, we can provide you with a list of local companies.

Any of our aluminium products will be supplied unglazed. Large products inlcuding patio doors will simply be too heavy to handle if the glass was already installed into the unit. In many cases we will sell our aluminium products unglazed in which case you will have to order the glass unit separately from a local glass unit manufacturer, which also reduces any risks as the glass unit will not be in transit.
