Sliding patio door trends
With the rise in popularity for sliding patio doors, Simon Spiers, director of PatioMaster South East, says his company’s sales patterns clearly reflect two of today’s most popular design trends.
“We know that today’s homeowners focus on design-led aesthetics without wanting to compromise on practicality,” Simon said. “It’s why the PatioMaster sliding patio door in anthracite grey is almost the default choice and accounts for nearly 50% of our order book.”
The other key trend is the requirement for wider aperture openings, reflected in a strong upturn in sales of PatioMaster’s Triple-track system.
“The Triple-track system is a great alternative to a bifolding door, offering wide openings with fewer panels to interrupt the view,” Simon said. “Homeowners also benefit from an opening that’s up to 25% bigger than a conventional patio door and we have seen a steady upturn in demand for the product.”
PatioMaster’s Triple-track system gives homeowners the option of an aperture up to 6m wide, with two or four sliding sashes that stack neatly behind each other when opened, even on smaller frame sizes.
“[PatioMaster doors] deliver for installers too because the system is straightforward to install thanks to features such as edge-located rollers that mean they are easy to adjust,” Simon said.
“As the economy continues to open up, more and more homeowners are continuing to transform their homes. PatioMaster gives them the solution they’ve been looking for and we’re delighted to be supporting our customers in creating the stunning spaces homeowners now seek.”
