Aluminium sliding doors have stepped out of the limelight over recent years, largely down to the trend of bifolding doors.
As a consequence, many architects and builders focused on folding doors seeing that there was little demand for sliding doors. Well, this has now turned around.
Sliding Doors are now one of the most technically advanced products on the market and starting to outperform bifolding doors in many ways – realistically, there hasn’t been a huge advancement in folding doors for many years now. In comparison, aluminium sliding patio doors have progressed massively from the old, wide framed, dated patio doors.
The desire for open plan living spaces and contemporary living spaces is behind the increasing trend for sliding doors. In essence, when you install sliding doors or choose trade supply only sliding doors, the result is far more natural light, better, living environments and far better views of your outside space and garden. These benefits of sliding doors make us feel better about ourselves, feel happier and more positive and therefore dictating the way we design our new build houses and create home extensions and renovations.
