Patio Doors

Sliding patio doors are a popular alternative to french doors. They are usually installed between the house and the garden but can also be used as a room divider in a conservatory or extension. Their popularity is due to the amount of light they allow into the property.  

There are several advantages of patio doors, including space and size. As the name implies, sliding patio doors slide rather than open on a hinge, reducing the amount of space required, and the possible span is an impressive 18 meters. Sliding patio doors can vary from between 8 and 10 feet high, and 16 and 60 feet wide, allowing for a larger than average entrance that is perfect when moving items such as furniture in and out of your home.
