Which is better: slide or lift-and-slide patio doors?

When fitting sliding patio doors most people want to achieve a balance between making them easy to open and the doors being good at keeping out the elements.

Most sliding patio doors are opened by pushing one of the leafs to the side. This ‘slide’ mechanism creates a good seal between the door leaf and the outer frame; if however, you’re planning to fit large patio doors (we can go up to three metres high), it’s advisable to go for a lift and-slide mechanism.

By turning the handle through 180° the leaf is lifted by a few millimetres to reduce the friction with the frame. This makes it possible to move even the biggest and heaviest doors with ease.
