Aluminium patio doors are perfect for many homes thanks to their clean contemporary looks, durability and strength.
Until now other aluminium patio doors have struggled to deliver good energy performance and the Genesis Warmcore system has overcome this issue by providing a warmer aluminium option that offers unparalleled insulation. Genesis WarmCore doors are 25% more thermally efficient than traditional aluminium systems. This same technology is used in our aluminium casement window and aluminium bifold door range.
Genesis WarmCore aluminium patio doors are built with a unique chambered core that ensures stunning appearance and exceptional energy performance.
Our aluminium patio doors are amazing, letting in lots of natural light, and deliver excellent security and warmth. Genesis WarmCore patio doors utilise the latest technologies to produce doors that are not only beautiful, but strong, functional and thermally efficient.
Aluminium is sometimes preferred to other materials for patio sliding doors due to the strength and clean looks it provides. Typically installed to the rear of the house, aluminium patio doors are a beautiful and practical way to link your home and garden all year round.
With a maximum height of 2.4 metres and width of up to 6 metres an aluminium set of sliding patio doors will usually have one or two sliding panes with the rest permanently fixed. Aluminium patio doors can be used to modernise the appearance of newbuilds or renovation projects and will let in lots of natural light due to the expanses of glass they have as an integral feature.
Manufactured using state of the art techniques, components and machinery, including a Graf welder, means that the finish on these patio doors are the envy of its rivals.
From a home interiors perspective it’s always tricky to choose whether to install curtains or blinds for patio doors. Blinds are historically difficult to clean, curtains can look untidy and both are quite expensive.
A neat solution to both these issues is to include integral blinds within the double glazed units. Not only are integral blinds extremely practical but they require no cleaning and look fantastic. The integral blinds are incapsulated inside the glass, look amazing and are operated by a magnetic mechanism on the surface of the glass unit.
Aluminium patios can be supplied with an integral cill which will divert rainwater away from the front of your patio doors and has additional choices of 210mm and 240mm cills to suit most installation situations.
The part M low threshold is designed for easy disabled / wheelchair access to comply with newbuild regulations.
The standard threshold has more of an upstand and will give improved weather performance in adverse conditions.
Add to this an almost unlimited choice of colour both inside and out and you have the perfect aluminium patio doors for your home. With a generous choice of standard colours, bespoke RAL colours and a selection of woodgrains and smooth finishes you can select the right match for your home.
With the Genesis Warmcore range you can choose any colour inside and out. The choice is yours.
Genesis WarmCore aluminium doors have a unique revolutionary thermal core that ensures the very best in thermal efficiency, with no compromise on design. 25% more thermally efficient than traditional aluminium systems resulting in an impressive U-Value of 1.4W/m2k when double glazed and an amazing U-Value of 1.0W/m2k when triple glazed
With a custom designed 5 point lock system running the full length of the door and high security lock with ‘anti-bump’ and ‘anti-snap’ you can be assured of ultimate peace of mind.
Whether you have a newbuild project that needs Document Q security compliance or simply want to feel safe then PAS24 security is definitely an option to include.
Max overall width 6000mm
Max overall height 2400mm

There are assorted products in Warmcore aluminium, these include casements, flush casements, tilt & turns and bifold doors.
Trickle vents are sometimes useful if you need to facilitate ventilation in your home without opening your doors or windows. They improve air flow and help reduce condensation and mould. If you are managing a newbuild project you will need to check with building control. Sometimes you can avoid having trickle vents if you are having a mechanical ventilation system installed.
The maximum size of the integral blinds is in a glass unit and is 2metres Sq.
For example if you had a glass unit 0.85m x 2.3m = 1.955m2 this would be fine
However a glass unit measuring 1.3m x 1.8m = 2.34 m2 would be too large – if you would like guidance on this please contact a member of the Genesis team.
Our expertise is in the manufacture of the doors and there are a couple of options for installation.
