At Isis Windows, we supply and install a stunning range of sliding doors in Oxford and surrounding areas in Oxfordshire. Patio doors offer a smart, practical way of flooding your home with natural daylight and giving easy access to your garden. Equally, the design of modern versions means heat is retained well during the cooler months. The large areas of glazing help create an illusion of space, and, like any home improvement, will add value to your home.
So it’s perhaps no wonder that sliding patio doors are shaking off their perhaps rather old-fashioned previous associations, and becoming increasingly popular in many modern homes.
Most models have two or four glazing panels on a set of tracks, with the panels sliding over each other as they open. A range of widths and heights is also available.
Slide the panels in more than one direction with a double or triple track system, or stack on one side if you prefer. A multi-track system allows you to choose which doors go where, so you have a lot more flexibility.
Another option is the lift and slide or tilt and slide innovation. This means that doors can be tilted backwards for ventilation without the door itself being even partially opened.

Benefits of Sliding Patio Doors
For a start there’s the versatility – you’ll find so many different materials (including aluminium, timber and uPVC) to choose from, alongside a myriad of colour and finish options.
Sliding doors create an exit from the living room, bedroom or dining room to the garden, terrace or balcony. What’s more, they’re ideal when space is at a premium – otherwise doors which open inwards can take up a lot of room when opened.
Durability is another benefit of patio doors – today’s sliding models are highly engineered products designed to work brilliantly for years.
Our Sliding Doors
Our high-quality sliding doors are a versatile way of bringing the outside in. The quality of design and the strong, durable product offers a striking glass façade and clean sightlines that optimise daylight and use of space.
If your home has an especially large opening then aluminium doors offer the performance you need with strong frames to support the extra weight of very wide doors. Our aluminium sliding doors open effortlessly on stainless steel rollers, fold back either internally or externally. These models also feature powder-coated paint in a choice of colours and finishes, including dual shades and metallic paint.
Sliding doors are also available from the beautifully styled uPVC door system, however, there are limitations to the maximum door width in this material because of the weight requirement for very wide doors.
All sliding doors have a extensive choice of hardware (in chrome, gold or white) and three classic finishes (oak, rosewood or cherrywood) plus a selection of colour options and glazing styles.
Hardware options include ‘D’ looped handle options in a range of colours either contrasting or co-ordinating with the door colour.
Designed to minimise your carbon footprint and keep energy use low, these models are also very low maintenance and offer top-notch security and safety features with a multi-point locking mechanisms as standard.
You’ll also love our slim profiles, and there’s a multi-track option for multiple glazed panes.
