Material Selection – Patio Doors of uPVC, Wooden–Aluminium or Wood

Whereas, in the past, the manufacture of patio doors was strictly limited to woods of different sorts, today we are able to offer a range of different material alternatives.

Patio door

Should I have a light uPVC material for my patio doors, long-lasting aluminium, elegant wood-with-aluminium or is classic wood the right choice for me? This is  a question that quickly arises as soon as one has decided to have a new patio door.

When choosing the material for patio doors a number of criteria must be observed

On the one hand personal taste and credo help decide, on the other hand on selecting the material for your patio door some criteria must be considered. For example, when fitting inside a protected building it could be that the local authorities insist that only wood may be used for your patio door. At the other extreme there is no sense in fitting a wooden door to a weather-prone facade which is not often used and difficult to reach. This means that the necessary maintenance intervals for repainting are not always met, leading to a faster aging and deterioration of that element. And, often the initial price of the patio door plays an important role.

Window or Patio Door

If one only considers patio doors in terms of their function and technical construction then, at first glance, there are a lot of similarities with those of a window. This is one of the reasons why patio doors are also thought of as being French windows or balcony window/doors. 

However, if one looks at patio doors a little more the a number of details and  characteristics will be noticed that differentate patio doors from a window.

The most important differing criteria is that patio doors are always fitted from the floor, at all times providing  simple and easy access to the outside whether it be onto a balcony or into the garden via a patio area and, in the ideal case, also barrier free.

Additional supplementary constructions, e.g. locking clamps, door threshold sills of aluminium, door motor/ side door function, additional locking points for fittings and lockable handle systems make it possible to configure every patio door individually to sduit every purpose and adapted for every situation.

Windows, on the other hand, serve to air the room, provide light to the interior, enable one to look outside and are usually fitted approx. 90 cm high into the masonry. In some cases they may be fitted with a fanlight with glazing or panel.
