Sliding patio doors are an affordable, long-term upgrade that connects your home to your garden, balcony or conservatory. Sliding open on a track, patio doors smoothly glide one behind the other, making them a popular and space-saving alternative to bi-fold designs.

Available in aluminium or uPVC, our sliding glass doors are double-glazed and come with a Yale 3-star cylinder lock as standard. Aluminium sliding patio doors have light-weight slim frames, and uPVC patio doors remain a popular material for those on a budget. Browse our wide range of colours, handles and decorative glass effects to find your perfect patio doors.

Our Patio Door Designs

Two-part or horizontal bar

Sliding patio doors are the perfect partner for renovation projects where space is a little tight. Our popular two-part sliding glass doors slide left or right, and if you opt for uPVC sliding doors, you can choose our horizontal bar design too.

Three-part patio door

Step out into the garden in style from your kitchen, living room, extension, conservatory or even onto a balcony. With one or two fixed doors and one that slides behind the third pane, our three-part sliding doors slide either left or right.

Four-part sliding door

Flood your home with natural light from large sliding patio doors. A space-saving alternative to bifold doors, our four-part external sliding doors have two central doors which slide behind the two fixed side doors.

Why Choose Sliding Patio Doors?

  1. Save space

    Unlike French patio doors that swing outwards, sliding patio doors glide one behind the other on a track saving you valuable garden and living space.

  2. Light up the room

    External sliding glass doors flood your home with natural light, as the large panes of glass run from the top to the bottom of each door panel.

  3. Energy efficient

    Gain heat and light from the sun with large double-glazed external sliding doors. Replacing your old doors is a great long-term investment that helps cut down your energy bills.

  4. Safe and secure

    Our uPVC and aluminium sliding doors have two locking clusters and a highly secure Yale 3-star cylinder lock. The cylinder is anti-snap, anti-pick, anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-plug to deter intruders.

  5. Add value to your home

    Sliding patio doors transform any living space, both in looks and value. Enjoy unrestricted views of the outdoors and increase the value of your property.

Patio Door FAQs

What is the best material for a patio door?

Patio doors in uPVC and aluminium both have some great benefits. Aluminium sliding patio doors are light, have a slim frame and can be personalised with an almost unlimited choice of colours. Whereas uPVC is cost-effective, easy to clean and durable – these are just some of the reasons why it’s a popular choice. Before you decide which material is best for you, it’s a good idea to have a budget in mind. Doors from Anglian come with a 10-year part and labour guarantee as standard.

Are sliding patio doors or French doors more energy-efficient?
Sliding patio doors and French doors are made with double-glazing window panes as standard. While our French doors are available with an upgrade to triple glazing to make them more energy-efficient, our sliding patio doors overlap. This overlapping design generally makes them more energy-efficient by creating a tighter seal, whereas French doors have a seal around each of the two doors.
Are sliding patio doors expensive?
Anglian sliding patio doors are priced individually based on the size, design and specification required for your home. If you are replacing sliding patio doors on a budget, it's easy to spread the cost with our low-rate finance plan, from just a £199 deposit.
How long do sliding doors last?
With regular light cleaning of both the doors and sliding mechanism, sliding patio doors can last several decades. If you buy yours from Anglian, the first 10-years are covered by our insurance-backed guarantee as standard, as well as an extra 15-year sealed unit guarantee for the glass.
Which is better, bifold or sliding patio doors?
Both bifold and sliding patio doors make a practical and stylish door to open onto your outdoor area. While bifold doors are known for their fold-away concertina design, sliding patio doors don’t take up any extra internal or external space, as the doors slide neatly behind one another.
