What is the standard size for a sliding glass door?

Interior view of aluminium sliding doors

Sliding glass doors have been a popular choice in homes throughout the country for years. They offer beautiful uninterrupted views of your garden or balcony and allow natural light to stream into your home. Gone are the days of sliding glass doors being heavy, clunky items that cost you money on electric bills.

Over time, advancements in technology have seen vast improvements in the quality of sliding glass doors, making them easier to manoeuvre and drastically more energy efficient.

What is the standard size for a sliding glass door?

The standard height for a sliding patio door, including the frame, is about 2094 mm (6 ft 8.7”), and the width of a sliding patio door panel is roughly 1790 mm (5 ft 8.7”). As some homes require multiple panels, the overall width would vary depending on the size of the home.

Some sliding glass doors, such as the Air Aluminium 600LS sliding doors, are expertly designed to have slimmer frames and let in more light. This is one example of the wide range of timber, uPVC and aluminium sliding glass doors offered by Chase Windows.
