Benefits of Sliding Doors

Sliding doors can be found in homes of all sizes around the world. Choosing and purchasing new doors for your home is a significant decision, so you need to be sure you’re making the right choice, and so in this piece, we’re going to look at the numerous benefits of sliding doors.

Minimal frame, maximum light

Sliding doors make use of large panes of glass, which means that when the sun’s out, light floods the room and makes everything look better. Some sliding doors can be installed with thin or ultra-thin frames, too, maximising the amount of glass and therefore the amount of light in a room, often providing an almost completely uninterrupted view out.

Creating bright spaces is ideal spaces like orangeries and garden rooms, breaking down the boundaries between inside and ou. You needn’t worry about privacy, either – as you can fit blinds to your sliding door panels to control privacy as you see fit. 

Ease of use

Despite their large size, sliding doors are easy effortless to operate. Often utilising highly engineered running gear this ensures they’re much lighter to open and close than they might look. Plus, when you want to close them securely, the five-point locking systems on our sliding doors are strong, reliable and independently certified, meaning security is not something you need worry about.

Magnificent style

Patio doors have come along way in recent years with advances in technology and todays sliding doors are truly eye-catching. Sliding doors can have a transformative effect on a property, whether they’re installed in a contemporary home or adding a modern edge to a more traditional property. The large glass panes and thin frames create an almost seamless look, which is attractive in any setting.

Energy efficiency

You might think that sliding doors would be a nightmare when it comes to retaining heat but Sunflex sliding doors are excellent insulators, with incredible thermal performance helping you to minimise heat loss during winter days. This, in turn, reduces the need to use central heating, which can help you keep your energy bills down and keep a little extra money in your pocket.
