Sliding Doors: Introducing The Lift & Slide Patio Door

Sliding doors are increasing in popularity throughout the UK for both newbuild and extension projects. They can consist of 2, 3 or 4 individual panels of which at least one moves back and forth. The great advantage of these doors is the ability to save valuable floor space, flood your interior room with natural light and provide a seamless transition with the outdoors.

What makes these stunning doors even more different than other sliding doors is their operating lifting system. When completely rotated through 180 degrees, it lifts the entire door up off its track and glides along effortlessly. When rotated to the closed position, the door drops back down onto its seals creating an airtight bond and protecting your home from the elements outside. You can lock the door at any position along the track.

Increased Energy Efficiency

It’s very important to consider the energy consumption in your new sliding door investment. With the cold periods during the UK weather, you need to consider the long-term value of your new sliding doors and how energy efficient they are. Marvin Architectural’s Lift & Slide patio doors can reach U-Values as low as 0.8 w/m2k in triple glazing form and 1.1 w/m2k in double glazing.
