How are uPVC Patio Doors Different to French Doors?

Stylistically, these two different types of door are often confused with one another. But they are in many ways unique; and it’s important to understand their separate attributes prior to making a buying decision – as the door you choose will form an integral feature of our home, conservatory or orangery (depending on where the doors will be sited).

To understand how uPVC patio doors open is important. Whilst French doors swing outwards, the patio style is fixed to a long track that it slides back and forth on. This is a much smoother form of transition, which is also beneficial from a visual point of view. You will get a clearer and less obstructed view of the outside with this type of door – and it will also let in more air and light.

If you want to achieve a contemporary look with your design, uPVC patio doors will enable you to locate the right look. Because they utilise narrow frames – and contain more glass than a French door – you’ll end up with a clean and minimalistic appearance that will add a modern twist to your home, whilst at the same time making it safer, warmer and more secure.

The Three Top Benefits of uPVC Patio Doors


A Sense of Space

Not all door designs are effective at letting in light when they are closed. This can make the interior space feel smaller when you need to shut the doors late at night, or during colder weather – a problem that can be easily overcome by installing uPVC patio doors instead.

Even when your patio doors are closed, they will let in ample amounts of natural light that will make your home feel bright and spacious. This is because of their design, which incorporates narrow frames that won’t impede your view.


A Secure Home

It’s important to buy doors that will complement the existing design features of your home. But security is just as – if not more – important. uPVC patio doors aren’t just stylistically appealing; from a practical point of view, they will also make your property more secure.

Our patio doors use a series of locking mechanisms that fit securely into the frame. Not only does this act as a deterrent to keep intruders out, it forms a tight seal that’ll keep cold air out and warm air in and make your home more weather resistant.


Access to the Outside

uPVC patio doors run back and forth along a dedicated track that allows them to open and close effortlessly. This means you can open them without having to allow any swing space – as you might have to do with a more conventional door design.

Because uPVC doors don’t open inward or outward, they create a natural and convenient point of transition that will allow you – and other members of your household – to move fluidly between its interior and exterior areas without any obstruction and provide you with a clear view of your garden.
