Because “X” indicates a sliding leaf, always remember to state whether the sliding doors, kits or patio door plus are to be “XO” or “OX” when viewed from the outside.
When investing in patio doors, aluminium doors and windows, the 1/175th Span rule should always be top of mind. This rule governs the flexibility of an aluminium window, patio door, shop front, etc., and states that all aluminium products must be designed to ensure that the deflection, positive or negative perpendular to the pane of glass is never to exceed 1/175th of the length of the glass edge.
It is important to keep in mind that if fly screens are required, these will be supplied with the correct frame head and cill, as flyscreens do not generally fit standard patio heads and cill frames.
Custom sized doors and burglar bars can be supplied on request.
