ABOUT PATIO DOORS
The term patio doors is used to describe sliding glazed doors, usually made of aluminium or UPVC, which provide access from a room to patio, garden, or balcony. They are used in the same way as side-hinged French doors and sliding folding doors (which fold up in concertina fashion, and are also known as bifold doors). Patio doors may be provided with up to four panels for wide openings. Some types allow all panels to slide, giving flexibility in furniture layout. Aluminium patio doors are available in a wide range of colours; UPVC patio doors are also available in wood-effect finishes. Leading UK suppliers of patio doors are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.

Four steel mushroom-headed bolts lock the sliding door into the frame to help prevent it being lifted off its tracks. The toughened glass is made to conform to British Standard BSEN 12150 Class 1.

Duration Windows: Patio Doors. Duration Windows, based in Canvery Island, Essex, is a leading manufacturer of aluminium windows and doors, including sliding patio doors. Duration Windows offers three ranges of sliding aluminium patio doors: the Smarts range, the Penthouse range, and the Monarch range. The Monarch range was the original product which proved very popular and is still manufactured. However it is more expensive than the later Smarts range, and is less thermally efficient because it uses the less thermally efficient thermal break technology - which has now been superseded by the newer polyamide thermal break technology used in the Smarts range. The Smarts range is now Duration Windows most popular sliding patio door. It allows all panels to be sliding, with no need for fixed panels. This provides greater flexibility in furniture layout. It can also incorporate a fly screen panel to keep insects out on summer evenings.
