Why choose Aluminium Lift and Slide Doors?

Sliding doors are the perfect glazing solution for rooms with a view that also require easy access to the outdoors. Whereas bifolds and french doors have more sightlines, sliding patio doors create picture-perfect views with minimal interruption by offering the largest possible glass areas.

But why choose a lift and slide door vs a standard sliding door? Lift and slide doors offer all the benefits of standard sliding doors and more. The difference is all in the operation. Turning the handle enables the lifting and lowering of the panels on the track, allowing even easier movement and the ability to lock the door in an open position. Perfect for allowing fresh air into a space without compromising the security of your home.

With lift and slide doors, even weather performance and thermal efficiency are improved thanks to a better fitting seal. Stunning aesthetics and seamless operation, combined with all the performance benefits of aluminium make Lift and Slide Doors from AluFold Direct the ideal choice.

Reliable and durable

Aluminium is extremely durable, lightweight and strong, which makes it the perfect material for manufacturing sliding doors.

Unlike timber or uPVC, aluminium is a very stable material with minimal contraction and expansion depending on the temperature. This prevents our door frames from bending and twisting which would typically make them harder to slide open and closed over time.

Low maintenance

All our aluminium door frames and components are protected against the elements and will never require treating or repainting. Unlike steel frame doors, our aluminium frames are rust free and on top of that protected with a special coating, which protects them even in harsh conditions such as marine environments.

Energy saving

Recent technological advancements have made aluminium door frames just as energy efficient as their timber or uPVC counterparts whilst allowing for a slim and elegant design. A larger glass aperture is made possible with our sliding doors thanks to the slimline aluminium frames which let even more natural light into the space, potentially reducing energy bills.

The AluFold Standard

There’s nothing ‘standard’ about the AluFold Standard. All of our aluminium doors are supplied with high-performance Low-E soft-coat, toughened, double glazed units with a warm edge spacer bar.
