Lift and slide patio doors are heavy-duty sliding doors, which are effortless to operate as the door glides on lifted ball bearings.

The strength of an aluminium profile ensures that individual panels can be manufactured well in excess of five square metres, creating a striking visual impact whether you are viewing the product from inside or outside the property. Despite their strength, the profiles are extremely thin, meaning minimal sightlines both at the head and foot of the door, but also a slim sightline where the panels meet.
A sliding door boasts a minimal amount of aluminium and truly maximises glass areas, offering large clear openings. The system can be manufactured with any number of panels, with a traditional twin track system offering the option of two or four panels and a triple track option offering between three to six sliding door panels. A triple track system can offer a 66% clear opening, while our unique face fixed additional panel can create a 75% clear opening with four panels stacked behind one another on a triple track system.
