Exceptional uPVC Sliding Patio Doors designed in Germany and manufactured by KAT in the UK

...

We were delighted to be the recipient of the North-West England Enterprise Award of ‘Best Patio Company 2017’.

We have been manufacturing patio doors since 1998 and are considered by the UK building trade to be the authentic market leader in this sector. uPVC patio doors offer amazing value for money and we have come a long way in 20 years. Our doors are packed with fabulous features, exclusive to KAT.

We manufacture our patio doors in Macclesfield using profiles and accessories supplied by German company and European uPVC market leader, Veka. Our insistence on providing customers with the highest specification doors possible, has pushed both companies to create a uPVC patio door system beyond compare.

Our doors are designed to be very installer friendly and are virtually maintenance free. They are extremely energy efficient with excellent thermal values and have been tested to withstand severe weather conditions. Plus, you can choose from a wide range of colours and finishes to complement your home.  Like all KAT products, our market leading uPVC sliding patio doors come with a full 10 Year warranty.

Why choose uPVC?

uPVC patio doors are energy efficient, offering cost-effective thermal insulation, which will reduce your heating costs. Our uPVC patio doors can accept triple glazing.

KAT patio doors are competitively priced and offer exceptional lifetime value, with an operational life expectancy of 35+ years. They are 30% – 50% less expensive than timber or aluminium windows and therefore represent excellent value for money.

uPVC doors and windows are very low maintenance products and are extremely easy to care for. Cleaning is simple using soapy warm water.

uPVC is 100 % recyclable and our doors are typically more durable than timber and will therefore remain in situ longer, because they will not shrink, warp or rot.
