If you’re currently scanning the market for windows and doors in Ireland, whether its composite doors, aluclad windows, or sash windows, it can be a tricky task with so many options available. At Rationel, we offer a wide range including aluminum clad windows and double or triple-glazed windows. Today, we want to discuss an important part of your home; patio doors.

Although all doors require some level of thinking, sliding patios might just find themselves at the very top because they need to function on multiple levels. In the winter, they should be strong enough to keep the cold outside whilst retaining all heat inside. Of all the designs on the market, sliding patio doors are perhaps the most useful and they can be installed within a dining room, living room, or even a bedroom to a balcony, terrace, or garden.

If you’ve never seen this design before, one side will be fixed while the other slides behind it (from an inside perspective) to open. If you’ve got ample space, sliding patio doors can be a great choice because you can choose to have it all the way open or open to a certain extent depending on the weather. Typically, the largest sliding doors will allow an opening of just over 1.60 meters. If done correctly and in a style that matches your home, they can become the frame holding together the picture of your garden.

Rather than having a terrace door or window door where the open door can be a little awkward, a sliding door is more efficient and allows you to look out into your garden in all weathers which can be a huge benefit.

If you need help in this area, Rational can help meet your needs with size, style, opening type, and more!
