Double Glazing Knowledge

Sliding Doors

Sliding doors, are doors that slide! Aluminum patio doors were very popular in the 70’s and 80’s as they allow large panes (larger than french doors) to easily slide to one side. Generally two panels of glass, with one or both sliding, although it is possible to have 4 panels in total.

Tip, try to ensure the glass is marked to prevent birds flying into the glass, or people walking into them when shut…..check out, “you’ve been framed” for examples! That’s why safety glazing is mandatory in this country, but not abroad so be extra vigilant on holiday.
