The Aluminium Patio Door Sliding System

Aluminium patio doors are simple and space-saving. With sliding glass doors, you have a system that is both window and door. Often mistakenly overlooked (with the popularity of folding doors) sliding doors offer flexibility and complete control. Used as a window, they can be opened an inch for a light breeze. As a door, they can be opened a couple of feet to quickly nip outside or slid open completely to enjoy summer days.

Aluminium sliding doors have slimline frames which allow for large panels of glazing. Sliding glass doors have a higher glass to frame ratio when compared with folding doors. The large expanses of glass allow natural light to flood in and enables you to enjoy all year round views of your garden.
