Timber sliding doors from Chase Window Company are custom made to order, and are manufactured from sustainably sourced softwood or hardwood. Our timber sliding doors are strengthened and stabilised by a process of lamination. This process involves three separate solid timber sections, which are bonded together with opposing grains, achieving superior durability, and are much less susceptible to movement.
The popular timber sliding door can accommodate virtually any aperture, up to a maximum 15 metres wide. These particular doors allow for maximum access to the exterior garden or patio areas, and because they consist largely of glass, they allow full visibility over an extremely wide area. Such a wide expanse of glass also allows for an abundance of natural light to flood into the room.
Timber sliding doors can be conveniently installed to exterior facing house walls or internal openings, should there be a need to extend the spaces within inner areas. There are obvious advantages of a near all-glass internal partition, chiefly the direct view into the adjoining room.
The most popular choice of glazing for timber sliding doors is double glazing, with argon gas filled units and toughened safety glass. This special glass is also extremely energy efficient, retaining heat during the colder months and helping to keep energy bills low. They are fitted with draught, and weather excluding seals as standard ensuring the elements are kept at bay.
As you might expect, security is a principal consideration with any type of Chase Windows’s external door. Our timber sliding doors are fitted with galvanised steel hinges and proprietary multi-point locking systems. These intruder deterring locks exceed the requirements set by the Association of British Insurers, and are British Standard BS3621 compliant.
