Sliding doors are an “old standby” when it comes to modernising or improving a home. Perth homeowners have been using sliding doors to get out to their patios or alfresco living areas seemingly forever. Here are some of their advantages.
Seamless Transition from Indoors to Outdoors
Sliding doors are efficient for going in and out of your home to your backyard, patio or alfresco living area. They slide open easily and provide great views of your garden and any scenery beyond.
We make our sliding doors out of solid timber and special weatherproof glass that we have made for us in WA. Because they are timber and not aluminium, they always fit into the frame with no spaces for heat or cold to come in or out. Both the timber and our specially made glass are natural insulators. They help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Our weatherproof glass is also shatterproof. They are really difficult to break. Walking into them will not cause them to break as they may have caused old sliding doors fifty years ago.
Our locking mechanism is impossible to break into from outside. Besides the lock, you can use a bar for extra security. The only way to break in is to spend considerable time and effort breaking our weatherproof glass.
They Save Space
Sliding doors don’t require any clearance because the moving pane slides alongside the fixed pane on a parallel track. This means you don’t have to clear the area for an arc as you would with a door that opens inward.
Our Sliding Doors Have the Best Aesthetics in Perth
Our timber frames look wonderful. They help integrate your home’s aesthetic into its natural surroundings. We recommend using a light stain or a clear finish to let the natural grain of the timber show through.
