Horizontal Slidings

Lift and slide, as the name suggests is a type of patio door, where one leaf literally lifts up on special rollers and slides to the side. Whilst the panels or leaves can be extremely heavy, the running gear on these doors makes them very light to operate. Once the door is in the required position, it is lowered and the weight ensures the panel sits firmly anchored in position.

This style of door is often to be found on cruise ships as the door between suites and their balcony as they are very light and easy to operate, yet solid when closed so they don't slide about with the ships movements.
