You could say that uPVC Tilt and Slide double glazed doors bring the functionality of a tilt and turn window to a sliding patio door. They are modern, attractive alternatives to traditional sliding doors, allowing you to enjoy a practically uninterrupted view of the outdoors while giving you the freedom to enjoy natural ventilation without risking the safety and security of your home.
When you operate the Tilt and Slide doors from inside your home and you turn the door handle at 90 deg, the moving door panels of which there are typically 1 (for single Tilt and Slide doors) or 2 (for double Tilt and Slide doors), move slightly inside (just enough to clear the outside handle and the fixed frame) and slide freely to the side on a set of durable, low maintenance rails behind the fixed panels which makes them very easy to open. While the door is shut, if you turn the handle at 180deg it will allow the door panel to tilt inwards at the top providing great natural ventilation.
uPVC Tilt and Slide doors have a larger unrestricted opening and slide more easily than their sliding patio door counterparts while they provide better sealing due to using double compression seals instead of brush seals. Tilt and Slide doors use the space very efficiently for opening because they slide rather than swing on a hinge like French doors. They are easy to clean and maintain while the usage of the multiple locking points will further enhance the security of your home.
