As the cold weather creeps back in this time of year and energy costs continue to rise, homeowners are going to be on the lookout for more ways to save money. One of the key selling points that homeowners are interested in is the energy efficiency, weather protection, and insulation that windows and doors can provide. 

At Patio Sliders by Deceuninck, our double glazing ensures that all our doors are highly insulating. But just how insulating are patio doors capable of being? What is insulation, and why is it so important to homeowners in 2024? Find out below, or find your local fabricator today and start enhancing homes with modern efficiency.

Why Is Door Insulation Important?

One of the easiest ways that homes lose heat is via their windows and doors. Good door insulation can help to reduce the amount of energy required to maintain a comfortable temperature within a home. This is referred to as the door's energy efficiency - how well it can keep in the heat.

The reason homeowners are keen on energy efficiency is because it can help them save on their energy bills. By consuming less heat from their gas or electricity, they can lower their monthly costs alongside improving their carbon footprint, leading to a more green and sustainable environment for all.

The bigger the door, the more important it is for it to have excellent insulating properties. Larger doors, such as a patio sliding door, will take up more space in place of regular home insulating materials such as fibreglass, brick, wood, and more. At Patio Sliders, one of our key objectives with all of our sliding doors is to provide some of the best thermal insulation. Our products are designed from the ground up to maintain as much heat as possible and regulate a warm and dry environment for your customers.

Double Glazed Patio Sliding Doors

We have aluminium patio sliders and uPVC sliding door profiles available. Whichever material you choose, you can expect incredible quality and insulation capabilities. Our innovative designs can strike the perfect balance of style and substance, as our doors can offer slim sightlines that let in plenty of natural light without letting out heat. 

The double glazed panes used for both our sliding doors offer an A+ energy rating and low U-values. We also have polyamide thermal breaks within our aluminium profile sliding doors to help increase their energy efficiency performance even further. 

Why Patio Sliders by Deceuninck

There are plenty of reasons to choose Patio Sliders beyond the insulation that our doors provide. We are number one for colour, and have a catalogue of high quality, fade resistant colour schemes and woodgrain foils available for our uPVC Slider 24 system and a range of RAL colours for our aluminium system. We even have dual colour options available for the uPVC range. 

The Slider24+ patio sliding door system is PAS24 certified, letting homeowners have total peace of mind. It’s also secure by Design, so they can provide excellent modern security to ward off potential break-in attempts. Do you install for older homeowners? Our patio sliding doors can also come with a reduced threshold, making them safer for those in wheelchairs or pushchairs. 

We have fabricators all over the country, so you’re sure to find a fabricator near you so that you can get the best in sustainability, energy efficiency, and security for your customers. We’re dedicated to sustainable business practices and have invested heavily in our start of the art recycling facility.
