The best systems and brands when buying sliding patio doors from North West Bifolds
When it comes to buying sliding patio doors, our entire range has you covered. Whether you’re looking for an affordable patio door replacing your dated ones or need the best-styled slider for a new extension, every one of our products comes designed for you.
Importantly, all the doors in our sliding doors collection, come with the essentials you need and the specifications you expect.
First of all, is the insulated nature of our sliding doors. Every product comes with highly insulated aluminium profiles with a polyamide thermal break. As a result, the doors prevent cold bridging. The insulated aluminium combines with our high-specification glass units, we provide whatever brand you choose. As standard we provide every only of our sliding doors with toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill.
Next is the colour options available with all our doors. Most of the popular colours such as white, black and grey are usually on the fastest manufacturing and installation times. But if you’d like a special colour every brand we offer comes with a choice of over 150, including a different colour inside and out or contemporary metallic finishes,
Finally is the choice of sliding door operation. There’s a choice of inline sliding doors that move in a familiar way along their track. Or you can go with a lift and slide version, that’s a little lighter and gives you the function of locking the door in the partially open position.
Of course, every one of our doors comes designed for a lower or flush threshold should you want one, and we work with you or your builder to make this possible.
Where are doors differ is styling, features and overall design and engineering. So when buying sliding patio doors, it’s worth considering how important each of these features is to you.
Our Sunflex sliding doors range
At the top of the range is our range of doors made by Sunflex. Designed and made in the UK, Sunflex sliding doors give you a choice of two sightlines at the central mullion – a key consideration on two or three panel sliding doors.
The SVG30 comes with a 30mm sightline and there’s an even slimmer version in the SGV20, having a 20mm sightline. The advantage of the 20mm model is a super slim door but without the full structural bonding of similar products made by Origin. Sunflex doors also come in pocket versions sliding into a wall pocket in a new extension.
The main reason to choose a Sunflex slider is how three panel doors stack flush together, a gorgeous track as well as exemplary quality all around. It’s one of our most popular products.
Buying sliding patio doors made by Origin
When buying sliding patio doors made by Origin, we give you four different models across two different versions.
The most superior door by Origin is the slimline OS-20 Artisan, featuring contemporary styling and a sophisticated structurally bonded design. It comes with the desirable 20mm mullion and flush door handles, adding to its streamlined and elegant look. All Origin sliding doors feature marine-grade contemporary handles, multi-point locks and the renowned 20-year manufacturer guarantee.
There are three different sightline options available as OS-77, OS-44 and OS-29. As the numbers suggest these are the mullion dimensions at the mullions. All of these doors are conventionally styled in the inline design, but where they differ is how thick you want these middle profiles. The OS-77 version is suitable when replacing classically styled patio doors when you want to retain similar sightlines. The OS-44 is slimmer and matches the middle dimensions of early patio doors such as the Monarch Monoframe door, long-discontinued but still installed in houses all over the UK. If you want something slimmer the OS-29 covers this.
The reasons for choosing an Origin product are when you want an even longer guarantee and doors at faster lead times. Origin makes their high quality doors faster than other brands. Therefore, if getting your project completed faster matters the most, Origin is an excellent mid-range solution.
