Opting for uPVC-aluminium tilt and slide patio doors is an excellent choice. The multi-chamber uPVC profiles provide the very best levels of thermal insulation, while the aluminium outer shell offers reliable protection against break-ins and weather-related wear and tear. In addition to the characteristics of their materials, tilt and slide patio doors boast a number of functional advantages thanks to their space-saving, highly versatile design.Configure now
uPVC-aluminium parallel slide & tilt doors give you double the benefits: They are energy-efficient on the inside and weather-resistant on the outside.
uPVC-alu tilt and slide patio doors are not just some of the best-insulated examples of practical balcony and garden doors. Indeed, their design and many visually appealing elements are particularly varied, too. After all, both the alu shell and the underlying uPVC frames can be given a completely different colour from one another. And as if that were not enough, you can even add texture to the interior-facing uPVC profiles with a selection of decorative foils. For example, it is possible to create a respectable look with white or grey aluminium elements on your facade while also using a brown wood effect to create a cosy ambience inside your home.
It goes without saying that all of the uPVC-alu tilt and slide patio doors from windows24.com can be equipped with any of a large number of additional features. Of course, such extra security measures as additional security fittings, lockable door handles and laminated safety glass are particularly well-suited to models with uPVC frames. In combination with the robust alu outer shell, such additional features provide outstanding break-in protection. We also recommend fitting electronically operated roller shutter systems or a range of different fly screens to protect against the dazzling sun and biting pests. This variety of options allows uPVC-alu tilt and slide patio doors to be adapted to suit any and all individual requirements.
The installation of uPVC-alu tilt and slide patio doors can be carried out by DIYers and professionals alike. Knowing how your own door works, however, can let you save on the cost of hiring a professional tradesperson if repairs or adjustments are required. You should always recruit several helpers due to the heavy weight of the door panels. Nevertheless, it goes without saying that the necessary instructions can be found windows24.com.

The belief that wood boasts the very best thermal insulation values out of all the available profile materials harks back to the early days of uPVC frames. Since then, however, wood has been overtaken by uPVC. This is due to the combination of a material that naturally exhibits low levels of thermal conductivity and the clever design of the frame profiles themselves.
To take just one example, the modern uPVC-alu frames you see on tilt and slide patio doors consist of a uPVC core that is divided up into a number of hollow chambers – usually between 5 and 6 separate chambers per frame. These air-filled chambers help stop heat being transferred from the uPVC material to the next air chamber and from the air chamber to the next section of uPVC.
While the U-values of uPVC doors are among the best in the industry in their own right, adding an additional aluminium outer shell means that uPVC-alu tilt and slide patio doors also manage to outperform their pure-wood counterparts in terms of structural robustness as well.
The light metal is mounted on the frame in such a way that it can never have a negative effect on the thermal insulation properties of the uPVC.
This means that uPVC-alu tilt and slide patio doors offer greater weather resistance and above-average break-in protection for a very affordable price.
At first glance, tilt and slide patio doors can sometimes look more complicated than other types of doors used for balconies and garden areas. This seems particularly true when you compare them to the range of far less complicated alternatives that are available on the market, including:
However, the major advantage that tilt and slide patio doors have over other mechanisms lies in the relatively large number of opening styles they allow.
In fact, the parallel slide and tilt models from windows24.com can be moved into four different positions. When firmly closed, for example, the door panel sits securely in the frame and offers a high degree of resistance against attempted break-ins and intense rainfall thanks to its robust, heavy-duty construction.
When pushed parallel to the frame, a narrow ventilation gap opens up around the entirety of the panel where it meets the frame. The door can also be tilted to create a large opening that provides particularly effective ventilation.
Finally, when fully open, the panels are pushed to one side to save space, allowing immediate ventilation and permitting free access between your veranda and your home.
Tilt and slide patio doors thus combine all the advantages of sliding doors and windows with an additional tilting mechanism. They also come with a unique advantage of their very own, namely the ability to provide passive ventilation when in the parallel position.
Thanks to the combination of their high-quality mechanisms and their frames made of alu and uPVC, these doors are in no way inferior to other types of doors when it comes to security, despite all the tilting and sliding possibilities they provide.
When you opt for uPVC-alu, you will benefit from excellent thermal insulation, high weather resistance and low levels of maintenance. This makes it a worthwhile investment, especially since you can control the price yourself in our configurator. The dimensions, the number of panels, the colour scheme, the glazing – all of these aspects have an influence on the price, but we let you adjust them to suit your individual needs. As a result, you can get a tilt and slide patio door made of uPVC-aluminium from just €2,120.
Using uPVC and aluminium in the same product gives you the combined advantages of two modern materials at once. The robust aluminium shell protects your tilt and slide patio doors from weather-related damage while offering a greater level of stability. It also contributes to an improved degree of break-in protection. Moreover, the internal uPVC multi-chamber construction means you will also enjoy outstanding thermal insulation you can rely on. In addition, both materials are extremely easy to care for and will last a long time as a result.
Tilt and slide patio doors made of uPVC-aluminium give you a great deal of creative freedom – even when it comes to the choice of colour. For example, we give you the opportunity to choose different colours for your product's interior and exterior faces. This means your patio door will fit perfectly with your facade while also blending seamlessly into the ambience inside your home. The configurator features a wide variety of colours to choose from for the aluminium outer shell, including matt, metallic and finely textured tones.
You can probably already tell what makes tilt and slide patio doors special from their name. That is because, unlike lift and slide doors that can only be moved in a sideways direction, tilt and slide patio doors can also be tilted. This lets you provide optimal ventilation for your living space without having to open the door fully every time. Moreover, parallel slide & tilt doors often fit better into existing buildings, making them the ideal choice for renovation projects.
If you would like to order some tilt and slide patio doors, please give us the specific dimensions you need to fit your requirements. The size you need depends on two factors: the size of the existing wall opening and the number of panels you require. Tilt and slide patio doors are available with a choice of two, three or four panels, making very large opening widths possible. The minimum and maximum dimensions for each variant are specified in the configurator.
