SLIDING DOORS

LIFT & SLIDE DOORS

OVERVIEW

Lift & slide doors are the perfect solution for very wide and tall doors. The lift and slide mechanism is housed within the door panel and is operated via the large handle, which when turned 180 degrees ‘lifts’ the door up taking the direct weight off the rollers. Once the door panel is in the slightly elevated position, it is almost effortless to slide regardless of how big and heavy the glass is. The ‘lift & slide’ operation also allows you to lock the door in an open position, ideal for when you have large gatherings, have children playing in and around the doors, or simply want the doors secured in place whilst they are slightly ajar allowing for some ventilation into the room. 

It is possible to combine a lift and slide door with slim sightlines as we do offer two and four-panel doors in a twin-track with a vertical sightline as thin as 40mm. Three and six-panel lift and slide doors on a triple track do contain a thicker sightline however because of the lift and slide mechanism required in the third panel.

EFFORTLESS OPERATION

As outlined above the lift & slide mechanism makes the doors very easy to use and slide. We find that homeowners with young children love the lift and slide solution and likewise homeowners who are thinking about their twilight years find the ease of use of the door very appealing for their forever home.

We often find whole elevations of properties taken up by huge sliding doors, and we also receive requests for extremely tall doors, it is for these applications where lift and slide doors are particularly suited. The frames tend to be thicker than with our other patio door solutions, but this is offset by the very large sizes that lift, and slide doors are perfect for.

EXPOSED LOCATIONS

Lift & slide doors are particularly well suited to exposed locations. The sliding sash is deeper than inline door systems and when the door is closed the gearing collapses on itself securing the door in position and creating an excellent weather seal. We also cloak off all the U channels within all our sliding doors with tread plates to improve the aesthetics of our doors and more importantly to prevent water, dirt and debris building up in the track, so all our patio doors look sleek and benefit from this increased weather protection.
