Main design of patio door
You are likely to find the following designs in the market:
- Inline sliding patio doors – the design is such that the panels slide side to side on tracks and bypass each other withing the frame.
- Bi-fold doors – this design allows the doors to “fold” horizontally, much like an accordion. Give a wide opening as the panels stack away completely to the sides.
- Tilt & Turn – the door has a unique way to operate. Under normal use it works like an inline sliding door. But can be operated to tilt the main door frame inwards for excellent ventilation.
- French patio doors – a pair of regular swing doors mounted within a single frame. They open outward, just like a very large French window.
Each design has it’s pro’s & con’s and some will suit your home better than others.
