Our ‘super-size’ aluminium patio door is manufactured from materials supplied to us by the world’s number 1 aluminium systems company; Schüco. This highly engineered door system is typically continental in design and offers outstanding performance. This is demonstrated by the fact that individual sashes can be manufactured up to a stunning 3 metres wide by 2.5 metres high. Imagine a six metre wide opening with only two sashes; imagine KAT XL.
KAT awarded North West Enterprise Award for Best Patio Company 2017.
Our Schüco ‘super size’ aluminium patio door was conceived to satisfy the desires of the most demanding glazing projects. Designed in Germany where large glazed openings have been commonplace for many years, this door system provides the ultimate solution with the fewest sightline obstructions.

Aluminium doors and windows have gained in popularity in the later half of the 20th century.
The strength of aluminium allows Patio doors to be made with slim sightlines, resulting in a higher percentage of glass allowing more natural light into your home.
Aluminium doors require very little maintenance, just a wipe with a damp cloth when needed and a regular check to ensure the track is kept free from grit and small stones to ensure the doors continue to run smoothly. Aluminium is more resistant to the elements than uPVC and is not likely to warp or rot.
Our XL Aluminium Patio Door hardware can be manufactured in austenitic steel which is a marine grade finish for coastal applications.
Please consider your choice of ancillary hardware carefully. Check out the finishes on our handles because it is attention to detail that helps make this unique product range so exciting.
Our patio doors are designed to discourage even the most determined intruder.
