uPVC Patio Doors
Affordable Doors for your Patio and Garden
Modern uPVC offers one of the most flexible bases on which to build custom patio doors. With a wide range of form and function options, you can easily configure the perfect patio door to meet your project's needs and enhance the look and value of your home. Choose from the entire RAL colour range plus decorative foils, fittings, glazing and more. Whether you want a simple two section patio door or extra wide one, we will work closely with you to design something which not only meets your needs, but in many cases also exceeds them.
A Popular Choice for Renovations
uPVC offers the largest number of customisation options and can be easily shaped and sized during the manufacturing process. While timber patio and front door frames are manufactured from solid timber, uPVC models are usually fashioned as hollow multi-chamber systems, similar to aluminium frames.
The Benefits of Multi-Chamber Systems
uPVC patio doors are available with up to six internal chambers within the frames. The more chambers a profile features, the more durable and robust it will prove to be. The multiple individual chambers constitute a fundamental part of the frame, running through the profile in its entirety. Alone, they improve the frame's insulation value but can be further filled with our precision high density foam giving U-values a huge boost.
Patio doors are often defined by large uninterrupted glass surfaces. This is one of their main benefits, creating a seamless transition between the interior of your home and the garden. Yet, it also means additional consideration need be taken in the following areas:
- Burglary protection
- Thermal insulation
- Sound absorption
No door can guarantee absolute protection. However, uPVC patio doors can be outfitted with multiple locking points, steel reinforcements in the frame and laminated safety glass. Altogether, this prevents simple smash and grab jobs or use of crowbars and other tools. The multi-chamber profiles of uPVC frames are extremely difficult to pierce or break apart. Roller shutters are another option which can be installed and offer the benefits of improving security, insulation and privacy simultaneously.
Tempered glass is yet another glazing option. When shattered, this type of glass breaks into tiny blunt fragments. By eliminating the danger posed by large shards of glass, this technology minimises the risk of injuries considerably while increasing safety.
