Design

Sliding doors, often known as patio doors, are ones that simply slide open and shut. They come in a variety of thresholds so that you can have control over accessibility. We offer our sliding doors in both a uPVC and aluminium profile so that you can find the right design for your property. This traditional garden door design will be perfect for any application. You can design a truly bespoke door for your next installation.

Bifold doors are known for their unique folding apertures. They are available with numerous sashes depending on the dimensions of your property. One of the best things about bifold doors is your chance to choose whether they fold to the left, right, inwards or outwards. We offer aluminium bifold doors to give you a modern approach to your property. There are many configurations that you can achieve thanks to the flexibility of our doors.

Thermal Performance

Both bifold doors and sliding doors will help to improve the thermal performance of your property. For our sliding doors, we offer both double glazed units for our uPVC and aluminium patio doors, with the option to upgrade to triple glazing for the aluminium door. A combination of thermal seals and rubber gaskets also help to keep you warm throughout the year.

Our aluminium bifold doors are also available with both double and triple glazing. An innovative polyamide thermal break offers superior thermal performance creating a barrier between your property and its surroundings. Whilst both bifold doors and sliding doors will help improve your energy savings; our aluminium profiles offer that additional warmth.
