Lift and slide patio doors, however, operate on a mechanism where the door sits directly on the track and, once opened, lifts onto rollers and works with its own weight to glide open. Therefore, they are really easy to open and great for people with young children or older people, or perhaps those of us who might be carrying trays of wine out to BBQs during the summer months!
You can then lock the doors into the ‘open’ position so they cannot be moved accidently. When you are out and they are locked, they still offer fantastic security, like all of our doors, and are thermally efficient despite using huge panes of glass.
You might want to consider these if you don’t have the space for the door leaves (or wings) of a bifold door once open, or the door leaves of French doors.
As with all of our products, the Lift and Slide doors can be painted in hard-wearing paint that comes in a range of RAL colours or we can colour-match well-known brands.
If you have the measurements of the space you’re thinking of getting them fitted, then we can give an estimated quotation over phone or email simply using your measurements. We’ll then give a more exact quote after visiting your home. These attractive and functional doors are available in aluminium and timber.
We’re currently taking bookings to fit these doors right into summer, so please do call or email quickly if you’d like to renovate the doors to your garden in time for summer.
