Light, bright, panoramic views and direct access to your garden, decking or patio

Patio Doors

LIGHT, BRIGHT AND EASY ACCESS

Patio Doors were really a development of French doors. Rather than having individual panes of glass, why not go for an unobstructed view out into your garden, decking or patio area.

PATIO DOORS VS FRENCH DOORS

1. Increased Space

French doors also have to open inwards or outwards, while patio doors simply slide left or right. This makes sliding patio doors the perfect choice for homes with restricted space. The large glazing area also allows for maximum light exposure and offers extended views of the garden or surrounding area.

Combining convenience, security and aesthetic appeal, external patio doors are ideal for conservatories, porches or rooms that require increased access to the outdoor space. To ensure your safety, all glass fitted to our patio doors is toughened glass.

2. Greater Flexibility

You can choose from having a single door which slides left or right. This normally slides in front of a fixed door. However, if you wish, you can opt to have both doors available to slide, allowing you to choose which one to use. This gives you flexibility when moving furniture around a room or if patio seating is moved as the sun travels from left to right across the sky.

Another advantage of patio doors, compared to something like French doors, is that you can have a much wider open space. The size of a hinged door is frequently restricted by the amount of space required to open it. However, a patio door is only restricted by the amount of sliding space. This is particularly worth considering if you need to carry items like furniture from either one room to another or from outsider to outside your home.

3. Greater Mobility

Patio doors can also be fitted so that the lower runner is flush with the outside path, decking or patio, or with your internal room. This removes any barriers and can assist, as mentioned earlier, with moving items. It will also help those people with mobility restrictions.

Custom Built Patio Doors

As with all of our products, any glazing from Scandinavian Windows comes with triple glazing as standard for the same price as you would pay other companies to have only double glazing.

  • 70mm high performance frame system
  • Steel reinforcement in sash and outer frame
  • Double or triple glazing, with a WER A rating as standard
  • 15 year guarantee
Every Scandinavian Windows window comes with a WER ‘A++’ Rating as standard. Designed for enhanced energy and thermal performance, Our multi-chamber design minimises heat loss through the frame, whilst the Soft Coat glass, warm edge spacer bars and high-performance glazing reflects internal heat back into the home whilst absorbing solar energy from outside.

Tough, robust and durable. Our frames are fully welded, internally beaded and steel reinforced for maximum strength, and because they are made to measure, structural integrity. Our windows are also fitted with a high performance multi-point locking mechanism as standard, ensuring the highest levels of safety and security for your home. All window components and hardware are specifically selected and fitted to ensure ease of use and long term performance.

Fully sculptured for enhanced visual appeal, Our windows are available in a vast range of styles, sizes and opening configurations, with the option of adding Georgian or Astrical bars for a more traditional appearance. For maximum personalisation, Our windows are available in a range of colour options, from authentic grain-effect foils to spray-painted RAL colours.

Our Patio Doors are available with either energy efficient 24mm double or 36mm triple glazed units. For optimum security, all of our door glazing units use toughened glass – which is 4-5 times more difficult to break than standard glass – on both the outside and inside panes of the glazing unit.
