Patio doors were first introduced to Europe from Japan about 100 years ago.
Ideal for modern properties for use particularly in garden rooms, they help to maximise the feeling of space as well as making the garden feel part of the overall living area.
Our individual Patio door panes can be up to 3 metres wide with a total possible span of up to 18 metres, with the option of 2, 3, 4 or 6 panes.
Despite the size and number of panes, the doors are still easy to open, sliding silently and effortlessly.

With large Patio doors it is more important than ever that they don’t bend or warp. By using engineered timber, we ensure that your patio doors stay rigid and strong and continue to work perfectly for many years.
We use Oak, Meranti or Redwood and layer sections of timber together with the grain running in opposite directions. Any warping in one section is then countered by the neighbouring layer, so ensuring that the whole stays straight and true.
With such large expanses of glass, people often worry that Patio doors will lead to massive heat loss in the winter and equally large heat generation in the summer.
Our state of the art double glazing utilises Argon gas filled spaces and low conductivity spacers to provide thermal insulation in excess of Building Regs demands so ensuring that your living space maintains a comfortable temperature.
To satisfy our 8 year paint or 5 year stain guarantees, we use micro-porous paint or wood stain to provide ultimate protection against the rigours of the British weather. All that’s needed is simple periodic cleaning and inspection.
You can specify different colours on the outside and the inside as our paints are available in over 200 RAL shades and can be matched to both Farrow and Ball and Fired Earth colours to match perfectly with your existing colour scheme.
There’s no need to worry about Patio doors being vulnerable. To ensure your Patio doors are ultimately secure we use anti lift out devices to protect against forced entry and fit multi-point locking systems as standard.
To ensure that the handles and catches on your Patio doors co-ordinate with your other windows and doors, we carry a massive range of ironmongery, including the Samuel Heath range, allowing you to match colour and finish to your existing scheme.
