With their robust solid wood profiles, tilt and slide patio doors are perfect for creating a particularly traditional look. Wooden profiles look natural and warm.
The doors are varnished to make them weatherproof, which means that the characteristic colour and grain of the type of wood used can be seen clearly both on the inside and outside.
In older buildings in particular, tilt and slide patio doors can offer considerable advantages when it comes to ventilation, and at the same time do not look out of the ordinary. A wooden door painted using RAL colours offers enormous flexibility when it comes to adapting to your facade.
This also makes it possible to match the colour of existing components such as window frames or the roof: from a striking sky blue to a natural brown tone, there is something to suit every taste.
A wooden door painted with an opaque white has a modern appearance which is normally only seen on uPVC or aluminium doors.
All RAL paints are fade-resistant and weather-proof, which means that they will retain their vibrant colour for a long time. This helps to make your parallel slide & tilt wooden door last longer and means less maintenance.
Protect and ventilate with parallel slide & tilt doors
The great advantage of parallel slide & tilt doors is that they can be opened to provide three different levels of ventilation:
- Partial ventilation
- Tilt ventilation
- Shock ventilation
In the first level, the door leaf rises out of the door parallel to the frame, this creates a minimal gap between the two wooden elements to allow air to flow through.
In the second level, the upper part of the sash folds out to allow ventilation in the same way as tilted windows.
From this position, the lower side of the window sash can also be lifted out of the frame, which allows the door to be opened completely using the sliding function.
Modern parallel slide & tilt doors are built in such a way that, despite being easy to use, they do not neglect aspects such as break-in protection and thermal insulation.
With up to triple glazing and well thought-out wooden profiles, in a closed state, parallel slide & tilt doors from windows24.com offer the same insulation as a door without glass. Even in the tilted or parallel open mode, they can only be forced open by determined burglars with electric tools.
