The multi-chambered profile can enhance a home’s insulation while also protecting it from the elements. Homeowners can use high-quality PVCu for many years, and it has the potential to withstand the test of time.
The ease with which PVCu can be customised is one of the key factors contributing to its popularity. Dorchester homeowners can choose from a variety of colours, finishes, and hardware accents. Each PVCu patio sliding door is made specifically for each project to make installation easier.

With a dominant part of a patio door being the glass, it’s crucial that the sealed units are of the highest quality. The systems we install come 28mm in thickness as standard. Inside the glazed unit you will find a warm edge spacer bar made from an extruded PVC material specifically designed to reduce transference of heat between the panes of glass keeping more heat inside the property. The glass used in our sliding patio doors is comprised of 4mm toughened glass to the outside and 4mm clear Low E toughened glass on the inside.
Triple glazing is made up of three panes of glass with air or argon gas within each of the two pockets. Triple glazing work in the same way as double glazing although with triple glazing you get an extra pane of glass and an extra insulation barrier. The extra pane of glass offers better insulation values. Triple glazing is popular in the Nordic countries where temperatures reach well below 0.
You have the option of upgrading to acoustic lamination for excellent noise reduction. This upgrade features two 3mm pieces of glass are put together with a noise reducing interlayer. You can also opt for an argon gas insert between the glazed unit which reduces the heat conductance between the panes.
