A very popular choice with homeowners, the aluminium sliding door is perfect for opening up your home to the garden, especially if fitted adjacent a patio or decked area. The doors slide effortlessly one behind the other, on tracks that are below the floor level, and the slim frames can be fitted behind the plastered reveals into the side walls. This gives the impression that there is no perimeter framework, and also allows for a much wider overall viewing area. Insulated aluminium profiles are very slim due to the characteristic strength of the aluminium material.
Aluminium sliding doors are an alternative to French doors and folding doors with the advantage of moving the main open area to either the left or right of the aperture. If more than 2 doors are fitted, and most systems can accommodate up to eight, the actual open area can be varied to the sides and middle of the aperture. Large openings, capable of accommodating multiple sliding panels, can be fitted to twin or even triple tracks.
Glass, safety and security features
All glazing is energy efficient and toughened for additional safety and security. A very low threshold with tracks fitted below the floor level means panels cannot be lifted off their tracks from the outside. Aluminium sliding doors are also internally glazed to prevent panes being removed from the outside. A multi-point locking system is fitted to the master door, with shootbolts, and side bolts fitted to the slave doors. All door locks meet British Insurance Standards and BS3621. Additional security features can be found on our lift and slide 500 and 600LS models.
One of the main advantages of aluminium, as a frame construction material for sliding doors, is colour finish. There are 200 RAL colours to choose from. An optional range of colour coded or luxury stainless steel door furniture is also available.
