Our handles are available in white, polished chrome, satin brass /gold, satin silver (discontinued) or black as you can see in the picture:
Contains approximately 40 assorted packers of various thicknesses (1 to 4mm) ideal for aligning and fitting the frame and glass units (toe and heeling).
Also approximately 12 concrete countersunk screws 7.5 x 120mm.
These screws do not require wall plugs. How to video on Youtube.
Most doors require an external cill to drain water away correctly. If you already have a stone or tiled cill as part of the building you may not require a cill.
As standard our cills are 100mm wider than the door, projecting 50mm on each side.
Please note: The cill height is 30mm and if a cill is chosen then these 30mm will be included within the overall height of the door.
Thermal upgrade as standard, we use the same high quality 1.22 u rated Pilkington glass as on our windows.
Advanced double glazing Argon filled with 1.22 glass u-rating.
We cannot use triple glazing on sliding doors due to the weight and thickness, making the sliding difficult. If you need triple glazing, please use our French doors.
Acoustic glazing for significantly better noise insulation.
Pilkington Optiphon™ high quality acoustic laminated glass offers excellent noise reduction without reducing light transmittance and impact performance.
Ideal for significantly reducing noise from road, rail or air traffic, factories or nightclubs.
Noise is reflected back towards the source and also absorbed within the glass.
The glass unit is made of a 6.8mm acoustic laminated outer pane, a 18mm Superspacer void and a 4mm inner KS pane.
Being laminated it is also very secure and difficult to break into.
The u-value is 1.2, the same as our superb A+ rated double glazing.
Sound reduction Rw(C;Ctr) 41dB(-2; -6)

This door will slide like this:
A frame extender increases the thickness of a door frame at a specified side. Great for properties with deep plaster, render or tiles over tiles.
Some fitters buy extenders as a precaution, for example where the door opening has not been built yet. Extenders can be modified to accomodate inconsistent side walls.
Extenders simply clip or slide on the door profile as you can see on the picture.
Our quality 30cm (12") letterbox has a robust moulded frameset with an externally sprung flap and internal flush moulding. The external flap is designed to be opened to approximately 147 degrees.
The letterbox by default will have the same colour as the door handle. If you prefer your letterbox in a different colour or in a different place, please leave a note at checkout.
Please note: Letterboxes can only be fitted on midrails on fixed panes, not sliding panes.

For added decoration or for a traditional feel we have Georgian bars, Square lead or Diamond lead.
Our Georgian bars are 18mm thick and are placed between the glass panes for ease of cleaning. We do not offer external Astragal bars due to unreliability as they are just taped on. We can instead supply a single horizontal or vertical extra bar. More information on the the glass menu pop-up.
Our Square lead is traditional lead which is 9mm thick and is placed on both sides of the external pane of glass.
Note: lead layouts are just a representation, the actual layout will be according to best practice.
Note: For custom or special Georgian/lead layouts, or to match a window with an adjacent door or window, please leave specific instructions as a note at checkout.
Our Georgian bars are 18mm thick and are fitted between the glass panes for easier cleaning. All Georgian bars are colour matched to your window colour to ensure the right look.
Please choose your own number of horizontal and vertical Georgian squares, or leave it on automatic where the actual layout will be set by us according to best practice.
Small adjustments to align the bars between panes will be done by us.
For custom/special layouts please leave a note at checkout.
We supply 3 strengths of glass:
Standard: Normal glass, which is dangerous when broken as it breaks in large sharp pieces. Not allowed for doors.
Toughened: Specially treated to increase its strength and safety.
Laminated: Our strongest glass, similar to a car's windscreen, has a laminated layer that keeps the glass together when broken, making it very difficult to break into. See the video below:
FENSA building regulations apply to glass safety.
A special large trickle vent provides background ventilation for when the patio door is closed.
Our trickle vent is manufactured from extruded aluminium, has an insect grill and can be manually controlled. It helps to control outside air flow which helps to reduce condensation and mould.
Total width 700mm, opening size 640mm x 17mm, EA of 5000mm2.
Please note all trickle vents are fitted to a 50mm frame extender above the sliding doors.
The trickle vents will match the door's chosen frame colour, except with black/brown frames where anthracite grey vents will be supplied.
FENSA building regulations apply to ventilation.
Our sliding doors have reasonably low thresholds of 50mm (42mm to bottom of door sash), not including any cill.
Lower thresholds than that have not been proven weather proof.
