Easy and comfortable handling – how the slide and tilt patio door works
Tilt-and-slide patio doors are perfect for new buildings and renovated ones alike because they're flexible and can be installed quickly and easily. They're especially handy for remodelling in or around your house as they need very little space during installation and later in use.
Boost your home's cosiness and ambience with these patio doors – no matter if you use them as internal or external doors. You'll save space in their opened and closed positions, both sliding and tilt, just like you would with a bi-folding patio door.
And here's how your tilt-and-slide patio door works: one moveable and one fixed door element are built into a frame connected to the walls on all sides. You can open and close the moveable door leaf by tilting and sliding it along the guide rails. You decide which type of glazed elements to use for your patio door – just like you can with all our doors and windows.
There are five available materials for these patio door variants:
- Wood-Al composite
- uPVC-Al composite
When you open this type of French door, you're sliding the moveable leaf in front of the element with the fixed glazing. The result: the glass panes rest parallel to each other (and don't damage each other due to built-in anti-bump measures). That's why these patio doors are perfect for rooms where a turn leaf door would take up too much space. Instead, you'll use the existing room more efficiently.
Installing a patio door with a tipping and sliding function can be done very quickly – just like with our windows. Extensive remodelling isn't necessary, neither for your house nor the entrance or patio. You can start installing your sliding door at every step of construction without disrupting other projects. It takes little time to apply the metal rails and insert the patio door's window panel.
