Slimline Sliding Doors – How To Choose The Right Finish

From the glazing thickness to the frame colours and coatings, we’re looking at how to choose the right finish for your slimline sliding doors. Choosing your patio or side doors doesn’t have to be difficult. There’s plenty to think about, but with these key pointers you should be able to get the exact finish you want from your slimline sliding doors. These are a premium choice, and if you’re revamping or building from scratch, you’ll want to get it right the first time.

Glazing options

You will find that sliding doors are typically double glazed and finished with laminated or toughened safety glass. However, you can also opt for premium triple glazing for extra thermal and noise insulation.


Some sliding door brands, such as Cortizo, offer a range of configuration styles, including fixed and sash.

With 2, 3 and 4 pane doors available, you can choose which panes slide and in which direction. Two popular opening mechanism options include lift and slide or inline sliding.

Whether you want a four-panelled door that opens from the centre panels or prefer most of your panels to be fixed in place, this can be factored into your design. Being able to choose from a range of configurations means there’s plenty of scope to create a sliding door system that works seamlessly with your space.

Frame colours

With brands such as Senior Architectural Systems (SAS), you can choose from two stock standard RAL colours, grey or white. However, if you have a specific colour in mind, they can colour match for a bespoke solution.

You can even choose to have dual colour, with different colours on the exterior and
interior surfaces.

Powder coatings

For most slimline door manufacturers, you should be able to choose from a range of powder coatings. This ensures your aluminium is protected from the elements and lasts longer. With one of the largest and most technically advanced powder coating facilities in the UK, SAS guarantees a high-quality finish.

Personalisation options

If you prefer an alternative look, we also supply PURe doors with a metallic, textured or anodised finish.
