Lift and Slide doors bring a modern slant to the traditional sliding door that has been popular for years. Safe, attractive and convenient, they are the ideal solution for conservatories, living rooms and dining rooms when you want to make the transition between outdoors and indoors as seamless as possible.
As you might imagine from their name, lift & slide doors do what it says on the tin. They first lift slightly up on to the track, and then slide along it. Versatile and flexible, Lift and slide doors can operate on a single, double or triple track system allowing for single, 2, 3, 4 or 6 pane configurations to perfectly suit the needs of your property.
There are numerous benefits of Lift & Slide doors including:
