Our aluminium sliding patio doors are the perfect solution for modern and stylish properties. The sliding doors feature advanced technology that is characterised by a slim aluminium frame and large glass units that give you an explicit transition from the inside out. The large panels of glass will inevitably open up your home and provide it with great light filled spaces.
The aluminium profile has been designed to carry large panels that will slide from side to side effortlessly for years to come. The strength of aluminium enables us to fabricate a lightweight and aesthetically pleasing patio door in a large range of configurations.
If you’re looking for the largest uninterrupted expanse of glass, then sliding doors are the choice for you. Seen as a more traditional option than bi-folding doors, they open and close in line, rather than encroaching on the room. The doors combine contemporary styling with robust performance and will add glass façade of grandeur to any home.
Lever / Lever Handle
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.
Our handles are available in black, white, satin chrome and grey (RAL 7016).
The standard glass unit used in our aluminium 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.
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.
Pilkington Optiphon is an acoustic laminated glass that offers excellent noise reduction without compromising on light transmittance or impact performance. 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.
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.
Pilkington’s obscure glass range provides obscuration and decoration. All patterns are classified according to their level of obscurity in relation to each other, with 1 being least obscure and 5 being most obscure.
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. An extended lead time applies on blinds in 24mm glass units used for our PVCu sliding sash windows and aluminium flush casement windows. Please note that the operational device will always be positioned on the right-hand side (viewed internally).
ATK is our standard cylinder fitted on the master door. The lock comes with the Master Locksmith Association’s highest rating – SS312 Sold Secure Diamond, TS007 3-star rating and British Kitemark accreditations. The ATK euro cylinder has 6 trap pins for advance pick resistance and 10 anti-drill pins that make your patio doors stunningly secure.
Upgrade the security of your sliding patio doors by taking advantage of our PAS 24:2016 security package. The PAS 24 upgrade includes:
The upgrade is generally mandatory on new-build projects.
The strong, thermally efficient aluminium frames create large glass areas that blend the outside with indoors without compromising on weather performance. Our aluminium sliding patio doors have been tested to the highest standards within water and wind resistance and air-tightness.
Our aluminium patio doors have not only been designed with looks in mind but performance and efficiency too. Each frame incorporates a ‘thermal-break’ to insulate the doors against heat loss, raise the internal temperature of your home and help reduce the risk of condensation. The thermal break allows the doors to achieve u-values as low as 1.6 W/m2K.
With all Quickslide aluminium sliding patio doors, there is a 10-year manufacturing guarantee as standard. We strive to ensure that our quality is assured but having a 10-year guarantee offers peace of mind for years to come.

The doors come with toughened glass as standard making it virtually shatter-proof. This isn’t just for the safety of your family at home, it would also take a significant amount of time to break-through. The security of our patio doors is assured by multi-point lock mechanisms on the main opening panels. We also offer a PAS 24 security upgrade package for total peace of mind as we do with our bi fold doors and Solidor ranges
