It is difficult to beat the advantages afforded by replacement double glazed sliding patio doors

Every different type of replacement double glazed doors has a distinct advantage, be they fabricated out of UPVC or aluminium. For example, French Doors offer the option of opening in or opening out, plus one can have either just one or both door leaves open at the same time. Sliding bi-folding and sliding doors open up the entire width of any wall, folding up against one another, and like double glazed French Doors can either be installed opening in or opening out, with or without a UPVC or aluminium low threshold.

No replacement door option can deliver the amount of extra glass, views, light, and sheer space efficiency of double glazed sliding patio doors. If your home overlooks a nice view or at least some greenery, it makes sense that you would want to make the most of this outlook. However, if your property presently needs to be adapted to help you do this, independent double glazing manufacturers, suppliers and installers Hazlemere Windows have a range of made to measure solutions that are each designed to suit your particular requirements.

Double glazed sliding aluminium or UPVC patio doors from Hazlemere Window Company in High Wycombe, Bucks will maximise your view of the outdoors as they come fitted with two, three or four wide panes of toughened clear glass and can be opened from side to side so that you can get closer to the outdoors without even having to leave the comfort of your favourite chair.

A double glazed patio door will also prove to be beneficial to those who feel that their dwelling could do with a bit of brightening up as the glass used will transfer copious amounts of sunlight (solar gain) into the property. Consequently, during the colder months of the year this energy efficient glazing will utilise whatever heat it can and convert it into energy so that you don’t need to be overly reliant on your heating.

Sliding patio doors can also be installed inside an orangery or conservatory for those looking to make the most glamorous of exits into their back garden.

When properly locked a UPVC or aluminium patio door will improve the security of your home. All bespoke replacement sliding patio doors fitted by Hazlemere Windows come with a a multi-point locking system that even the most determined of intruders will find difficult to force or break.

Hazlemere has an extensive 8,000 square foot home improvement showroom in High Wycombe, with both aluminium and UPVC double glazed sliding patio doors on display, along with residential front and back doors, bi-folding doors and French doors. Both products are available with and without trickle vents, so are suitable as both replacement doors (where trickle vents already exist, and therefore must be replaced), as well as new build projects.

Sliding patio doors are very space efficient allowing furniture, potted plants or frankly anything to be stored inside and outside the house adjacent to the fixed pane section(s). With anti-lift blocks and secure locking, sliding patio doors are a highly secure addition to any home. As each door is made to measure, home owners have the choice of having the sliding section(s), sliding whichever way they choice so the opening is best positioned to suit the room they are being fitted in.

Finally, no cabin hooks are needed on sliding doors to keep them open, so no gust of wind can slam them shut. They can therefore be safely left slightly open to allow ventilation, while keeping children and pets where required, be that in or out of doors!
