Choosing the perfect Patio Doors
Folding, Sliding & French Doors
Patio doors create a brighter living space and seamless connection between interior and exterior. Whether you're looking for classic timber patio doors, upvc or even premium aluminium clad timber or upvc, Neuffer can develop a custom built solution for you. Patio doors can transform a room, bringing in more natural light, creating great views and allowing you to enjoy your garden or yard from the inside too. We offer four different types based on function which can then be further customised by material, colour, glazing, size and shape. Today's precision engineered patio doors can be made far larger than before creating huge panoramic views. Neuffer offers extraordinary design flexibility to ensure your project shines.
Different Shapes and Functions
The word patio door is an umbrella term that merely defines the installation location rather than mechanism similar to the terms "front door" or "balcony door" which can come in a wide variety of actual types. Thus, any door that connects the inside to garden or yard can technically be a patio door. Nowadays however, there are four main styles of patio door based on opening type.
- French Doors (side mounted on hinges that swing in/out)
- Lift and Slide
- Bifold doors (also called: folding doors)
- Tilt and Slide
These each describe the opening system as they will all feature large glass surfaces and and the ability to customise the hardware, glazing and size. An important factor in your decision is the overall installation space for the door as well as the room available for the door to swing in or out, fold or slide.
