Slim Sliding Doors

Is it better to choose Slim Sliding Doors?

When deciding on Sliding Doors for your home, the decision as to which manufacturer and profile to choose can seem daunting. It is not necessarily better to have a Slim profile, it’s all a matter of personal choice.

Many homeowners prefer a Slim Sliding Door profile, so that you see more glass and less profile when looking through your doors. However, if you have space for a large Sliding Door, with panes of glass up to 3 metres wide, would you notice whether the profile was a Slim 35mm or 87mm? KAT manufactures a wide range of Sliding Doors, with each range available in a wide range of RAL colours, with excellent thermal properties to keep your home warm.

Frameless Sliding Doors

Another alternative to a Slim interlock is to fit frameless glass-to-glass Sliding Doors such as Svarre. From outside, all you see is a seamless glass finish. Internally however, is a beautiful timber finish which can either be painted to any RAL colour, or simply treated to retain its’ natural grain. Svarre meets PAS 24 security and has been tested to withstand the harshest of Winters in the UK and Ireland.

So, when it comes to deciding on which is the best Sliding Patio Door for your home, you’ll see it’s all a matter of preference. For further information, or to speak to a member of the KAT Customer Services Team, call 01625 439666 or email [email protected].
