we will help you to build a dream

Lift & Slide Doors

The term “lift and slide” refer to different mechanisms that impact the opening of the doors, influencing their performance and overall look. it’s important to decide which operation you think will best suit your needs.

Lift & Slide Urban Doors:

Lift and slide doors take advantage of the handle to slide open. When the handle is turned 180°, the door is raised a few millimeters onto the rollers, which reduces the friction and makes opening even the heaviest doors easy. Due to this reduced friction, lift and slide doors appear even lighter and easier to manoeuvre.

The lift and slide mechanism allows for the door to be locked in place when opened just by turning the handle, which is a useful safety measure for those who have children and don’t want doors opened accidentally.

For those who aren’t familiar, is a door that uses special hardware allowing the panels to lift off their track and weather-stripping and glide open or closed. When it’s time to close the glass doors, the handle lowers the panels on the track for a tight fit.
Lift & Slide Doors are also available in all product types although the slimmest sightlines will be typically available with aluminium options. Composite and timber options can provide improved thermal performance but normally come with a slightly larger profile. uPVC can provide a good cost alternative to aluminium but again the sightline will generally increase and the sizes are more limited due to profile strength.
