Available in multiple wood types
Lift-and-slide doors made of wood do not only differ visually from uPVC or aluminium variants. Wood has good insulation properties, as it has naturally very low thermal conductivity. From an ecological viewpoint, they also make sense, as the focus in the manufacturing process is clearly on local timbers and sustainable growth.
The material is naturally able to carry a high static load and can therefore be used for frames with heavy glazing inserts. Depending on the size, the respective casements can easily weigh several hundred kilograms.
A profile with a bigger cross sectional area can increase the values for density and insulation and improves the energy balance of the house. Furthermore, the natural components remain in their original shape and hardly expand with differences in temperature, in comparison to aluminium and other materials.
These components can therefore safely be installed on the sunny side of the house. Despite their large glass fronts, their casements meet high standards of security. The security of your home can also be improved with special locks and handles.
Like with window frames made of wood, the maintenance requirements of wooden sliding doors are significantly higher than those of uPVC-profiles. Aluminium and uPVC are both weather-proof materials. On the other hand, weather influences such as UV light, frost or humidity can put the durability of wood to the test. Therefore, in order to retain the natural aesthetics of wood, there is a need for regular maintenance.
The surfaces of such profiles need to be varnished and painted regularly.
