A great alternative to bifold doors, our patio doors allow a generous amount of natural light and fresh air into your home, creating a more open atmosphere. This is particularly useful if your connecting room is a little on the darker side: patio doors let light flood in, creating an illusion of a bigger room.

How do you open a sliding patio door?
Our sliding patio doors are designed to be easy to open but secure when shut. To open them, you just need to turn the door handle to a certain angle to release the door, and then simply slide open the door as far as you want. The door sits on rollers so is easy to open and close, regardless of the size of the door. When you have your sliding patio doors installed with Britannia, one of our expert installers will always show you how to use your new product correctly and check that you are completely satisfied before they leave.
How wide is a two panel sliding glass door?
If you’re thinking of installing sliding doors, it’s always important to consider how wide an opening you will need. Sliding doors are great for small properties as they don’t have any swinging doors that take up space, but it does mean that only one half of the door can open at any time. The standard size for a patio door is around 1.5m (5ft), which would give you an opening of 75cm (2.5ft) out to your garden. At Britannia we can make sliding glass doors to whichever dimensions you want, whether it’s fitting it in a small space, or making statement sliding glass doors that make up the full outside wall. Just contact us today for a free quote and see what we can do for you.
What is a lift and slide patio door?
Lift and slide patio doors use a different mechanism to classic sliding patio doors. Whereas traditional sliding doors are always on the sliding track, when you fully close a lift and slide patio door, it comes off the track. This secures it in the closed position, so you don’t get any draughts coming through. To open, you simply have to turn the handle and lift the door slightly to place it back on the track, and then it rolls effortlessly open. You can also lower the door off the track at any point, locking the door in an open position – great for when you have kids!
Are patio doors energy efficient?
Patio doors can be extremely energy efficient, but they can also be the opposite; it all depends on the quality of the door. If you choose a double or triple-glazed door with a high-quality PVCu, timber or aluminium frame and a good locking system, then your patio doors should be extremely energy efficient. Keep your eye out for A-rated glass with a low U-value; the lower the U-value, the less heat it allows to escape. At Britannia, we manufacture our patio doors ourselves with the highest quality materials to make sure they are as energy efficient as possible.
Are sliding patio doors easy to break into?
Although sliding patio doors are made mostly of glass, they are incredibly secure. Double or triple glazing is very difficult to break, and at Britannia we fit toughened glass as standard on all doors and windows below 800mm from floor height to give you even more security. We also use sophisticated locking mechanisms on all our exterior doors so that you can feel safe and comfortable in your home. All our products are approved by the UK Police-led Secure by Design initiative, which hopes to reduce burglaries by increasing security measures in the home. If you want to find out more about ways to keep your house safe from potential break-ins talk to us today to find out the most secure options for your patio doors.
How much does a patio door cost?
The cost of patio doors can vary widely depending on various factors. This includes the material you make them out of, the size of patio doors you want, and the type of glass you want. As a general rule, aluminium will cost more than PVCu, the larger the door the more expensive it will be, and double glazing will be cheaper than triple glazing. Whichever you choose, you can rest assured that all our products are of the highest quality and are fitted by professionals. Why not contact us today for a free quote?
