Sliding patio doors have extra-large glass areas with minimum frames to give you uninterrupted views, daylight and easy access to the outside. Therefore if your garden view is the most important reason for adding new doors this is the best solution for you. Another advantage of these types of doors is they save space because there are no hinged doors protruding on the outside or inside.
Sliding doors do not require as much framework as bi-folding doors, which means larger glass panes that allow plenty of natural light into your room. As some VitraQ customers have described the doors are more of a “sliding glass wall”; perfect for letting the sun shine in on summer days, but also giving you an unobstructed view of your garden with the doors closed as the colder months draw in. Replacing your smaller windows with sliding doors will drastically increase the natural light in your home and could even save you some money on those electricity bills!
Whist regular or bi-folding doors require space either inside or out, as a sliding door moves to the side it only requires the width of the frame. This is great for those with limited space and is less obtrusive than a normal patio door, creating a seamless transition from indoors to out on those long summer nights.
Sliding doors are both a practical and aesthetically pleasing choice for your home. For despite the huge glazed area, with VitraQ’s manufacturing and engineering expertise, they are no less robust or secure than bi-folding doors and will open and close in silence with complete ease.
