Sliding Patio Doors Slough & Watford
These designs frequently make bold statements while being able to save space. If you live in a home with a balcony or a significant amount of furniture, sliding patio doors can be an ideal solution for you. And with slim sightlines, the window frames don’t interfere with the view.
We don’t believe in cutting corners by bonding the glass on site. Instead our slimline sliding doors are bonded by London Architectural Glass to ensure maximum performance and durability throughout the lifespan of the door.
At Direct Trade, we try to offer the most up to date materials with modern looks. That’s why we choose to use aluminium. Homeowners can choose from multiple panes and multiple tracking systems for ultra wide apertures with sliding patio doors. Create a modern and elegant home with your next installation.
Weatherproof & Energy Efficient
There’s a reason that we use aluminium so often, even when we love the steel looks of our other products. It’s not just that it’s lightweight and easy to use, though that’s important. It’s that aluminium is incredibly weatherproof. It doesn’t stain as wood does, and aluminium sliding patio doors stay colourfast for years to come.
Unlike other materials, it has a high melting point so that it won’t warp. And polyamide thermal breaks mean that it’s thermally ‘broken’ to reduce heat transfer out of your home. Aluminium and polyamide have a lot of the same properties, which is why they work so well together.
Keep in mind that aluminium offers the best U-values on the market, and our slimline sliding doors have U-values of 1.3 W/m2K. And with your sliding patio doors, aluminium offers better energy efficiency. You’ll reduce draughts and dampness in your home when you choose aluminium.
Lowered Thresholds — Installers know that government standards continue to rise for accessibility standards and those with low mobility. But lowered thresholds are helpful to everyone, considering that they reduce tripping hazards. Raise the home value by complying with government standards and anticipating future needs.
Reduced Space — Sliding patio doors are the perfect option for homes with balconies or gardens with reduced space. They fit within the frame rather than protruding from the entry. This can help those who have furniture or other obstacles that might hinder swing doors.
Multi Track Options — The multi track options are helpful for those who plan on having multiple sashes with large apertures. It can help open and close your sliding patio doors with ease and efficiency, ensuring that these doors don’t catch.
Sleek Looks — Aluminium profiles with slim sightlines look elegant in any home. Plus, aluminium improves the energy efficiency of your sliding patio doors. With polyamide thermal breaks to help ‘break’ heat transfer outside of the home, your home can afford stunning views and stay warm all year round.
Natural Light — Installing sliding patio doors is a great way to bring natural light into the home. And improving natural light is a great way to improve the moods of every homeowner. Bring light into those dark places when you install sliding patio doors.
Beautiful Views — Whether you’re a homeowner or in the trade, you can create beautiful views when installing sliding patio doors. They work well for both garden or city views and give homes more ambience. Most of our customers appreciate being able to see their gardens throughout the year.

A Good Lock Is Not Enough
We offer the best protection with Ultion locks, as standard on all of our sliding patio doors. Most standard locks take just over 9 seconds to break into. But with Ultion, state of the art technology creates a nearly impenetrable defence.
Hidden Attack Lock
When trespassers attempt to jimmy the Ultion lock, it activates Lockdown Mode. Intruders are stopped in their tracks when the hidden firing pin secures the central cam, making it impossible to open the door. Lockdown Mode prevents homes from being picked or harassed.
The Ultion lock meets, and in fact, exceeds every security standard. Kitemark, Secured by Design, and the Master Locksmith Association, all agree that Ultion offers the utmost protection for homes. Intruders don’t stand a chance against these sliding patio doors.
Most other locks have 5 or 6 pins, but Ultion locks come with 11. With 294,970 key combinations, your lock isn’t just secure. It takes longer to pick and is harder to break. And it comes with nearly 3 times the key combinations required for the highest lock standards.
Anti Snap Technology
Ultion is so confident in its anti snap technology that they offer a £2000 warranty if your sliding patio doors have been broken into with snapping. That’s more than just intuition. That’s great engineering.
