A sliding door is a type of door which opens horizontally by sliding, usually parallel to a wall. Sliding doors can be mounted either on top of a track below or be suspended from a track above and some types ‘disappear’ in a wall when slid open. There are several types of sliding doors such as pocket doors, Arcadia doors, and bypass doors. Sliding doors are commonly used as shower doors, glass doors, screen doors, and wardrobe doors.

Patio doors are often overlooked in comparison to bifold doors but because they slide within their own frame area and do not protrude into a room or onto a balcony or patio, they are often still the most space efficient option for many homes. Their weathering performance is excellent and patio doors can be supplied with a much bigger glass area than a bifold. There is another major benefit in patio doors, they are often less expensive compared to a bifolding door. We sell four times more patio doors than we do bifolds which is a testament to their continued popularity and usability. In general, we would advise; if you have a great view and a wide enough opening go for a patio door. If you are space restricted go for a bifold. Of course the choice is yours.
