In recent years, there has been a growing concern for the environment and a shift towards more sustainable practices in various industries. The fenestration industry is no exception, with a focus on developing patio doors that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also environmentally friendly.

The rising cost of energy bills has led to a climbing demand for more energy efficient windows and doors, and the government's NetZero scheme has led to a series of new policies that have pushed new innovations all over the country. To combat this concern, we’ve developed patio sliding doors that are designed from the ground up to be environmentally friendly, highly thermally efficient, and incredibly long lasting.

Sustainable Materials for Patio Doors

One key aspect of developing sustainable patio doors is the use of eco-friendly materials. Traditional patio doors often use unsustainable materials, such as timber or certain plastics. These materials can negatively impact the environment due to deforestation or high energy consumption during production. However, with advancements in technology, more sustainable uPVC manufacturing processes have emerged.

The uPVC we use is durable, low maintenance, and designed to be recycled. We craft our doors using recycled materials that can be recycled again at the end of their lifespan, reducing waste at the beginning and end of the process and minimising the environmental impact. Additionally, our uPVC and aluminium patio doors each offer excellent thermal performance, helping to improve energy efficiency in homes and reduce carbon emissions. Our aluminium option includes hidden polyamide thermal breaks, making them not only highly secure and recyclable but also incredibly thermally efficient. 

Many homeowners enjoy the aesthetic appearance that wooden doors provide, but we can offer a massive collection of robust and vibrant colours and woodgrain foils. Each foil can replicate the look and texture of real wood, allowing customers to enjoy a classic style, without any drawbacks. 

Energy Efficient Double Glazing

In addition to the materials used, our sustainable patio doors also incorporate energy efficient glazing. Double or triple glazing is commonly used in modern patio doors to enhance thermal performance and reduce heat transfer. This helps to keep homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer, reducing the reliance on heating and cooling systems and ultimately lowering energy consumption.

Not only could homeowners benefit from a reduced heating bill, but they can also reduce their carbon footprint year after year. 

Longevity & Durability

Furthermore, the sustainable double glazed patio doors we craft are designed with longevity in mind. They are built to withstand the test of time, resisting corrosion, rotting, or warping. This means that homeowners can enjoy their patio doors for many years without the need for frequent replacements or repairs, reducing waste and the consumption of new materials.
