To find the best patio door solution for you and your property it is important to note that patio doors are technically sliding patio doors or patio sliding doors where one or more of the doors slides along a track rather than opening on hinges. Typically a set of patio doors in UPVC is the product customers would choose due for a variety of benefits which include maximising the view & light whilst enhancing a properties appearance and giving convenient access to the garden.

One of the key benefits of a UPVC patio door is the wide selection of colour options that are available. You can choose anything from plain white to bespoke colours and even natural or painted woodgrain finishes. By having these choices allows the homeowner to create something special and unique that suits the style and design of their property. A set of patio doors can manufactured up to a maximum of 6 metres in width and 2.4 metres high and usually has one or two panes that slide with any number of fixed panes as part of the overall design.

Unless unglazed your patio sliding doors will have toughened safety glass as standard and can be configured with other glass specifications including acoustic for noise reduction or other types which can improve or restrict solar gain.  Energy ratings on patio doors can vary widely depending on the system used and the glass configurations. The exact rating of the glass will be determined by the technical composition of each leaf within the double glazed unit and whether or not argon gas and warm edge spacer bars have been used in the manufacturing process. Your window manufacturer will be able to tell you about these specifications and the overall energy rating of your patio sliding doors.

Security is a key consideration for most homeowners these days and PAS24 is a compulsory security requirement to comply Doc Q regulations on all newbuild properties. If you would like the peace of mind that comes with these security features along with other options take a look at the Genesis Patio24. There is a wide variety of quality and choice on the market for patio doors so be sure to choose a supplier that can manufacture with the above considerations in mind and create something that is exactly to your requirements.

A patio door is a fairly straight forward product to install but if you would like to have a complete service most good installers will be able to provide you with a quote for a supply and fit service. One product that will definitely meet all of these standards is the Genesis Patio24 which has been designed and meticulously manufactured to offer a sturdy, beautiful and reliable addition to your home. As mentioned earlier a patio door is usually a patio sliding door, but if what you are looking for is a French door these are also manufactured in the Genesis Collection with the Genesis Warmcore French door and the Genesis Flush French door.
