Further information about External Doors
External patio doors
If you want to add lots of natural light to your home, a patio door is the perfect external door type for your home. Patio doors are the perfect door type to blur the boundaries between inside and outside the home. Take advantage of the large, toughened glass panes inside luxurious, energy-efficient frames to extend your living space into the garden and floor your home with natural light all year round.
The Aspire Doors patio range can cater to every home type and need thanks to our wide selection of bi-fold doors, french doors, and sliding doors.
Our french door type of external doors offers two doors, side-by-side, that are both able to open outwards. This external door type offers a wonderful European look and is available in a variety of oak choices, as well as contemporary aluminium options, such as Revere Grey French doors.
If you're looking to save a little space when choosing your new external doors, bi-fold doors are a great option. Bi-fold door panels fold back on themselves in a concertina style so take up less space than traditional french doors.
Sliding doors give you the best of both windows and doors. With large glazing that can be slid to one side, you can open up your entire home. This is the perfect type of door if you want to maximise light in your home.
All of our patio door styles are perfect for maximising space in your home. They also help to make rooms appear bigger because of how much natural light they allow to pass through.
External Doors for Every Home Style
Whatever location you're fitting your external doors in, Aspire Doors has a size to fit so our products can cater to almost any home or patio. Our external doors range in size between 2-door 1.2m French door pairs all the way up to 6-door 4.8 bi-fold door sets.
Our variety of materials and finishes, from rustic oak to contemporary aluminium frames in modern colour choices gives you the opportunity to find the perfect door set for your makeover project. We provide ourselves on providing the highest quality projects for every homes budget.
All exterior doors from Aspire come with the necessary hardware, including door handles, hinges and security locks. Our doors are designed to be easy to fit and hang, thanks to our high-quality parts and instructions bespoke to all of our products.
Whilst they are relatively easy to install, you still always have the option of enlisting a professional joiner or builder to fit your Aspire external door system. This ensures your door is fit to a professional standard and you can just focus on enjoying the new additions to your property.
The woods, metals and plastics that we use in our manufacturing process are of the utmost quality, delivering long-term style as well as incredible thermal efficiency, wind resistance and security too. The UK has very strict standards when it comes to being energy-efficient and safe; all Aspire products pass every regulation with flying colours. The double glazed doors provide thermal insulation that far exceeds the UK benchmark, helping to reduce your energy bills and keep harsh weather outside.
Our most popular styles are our luxury fully finished engineered oak doors and versatile unfinished pine doors, thanks to their stylish yet durable stainless steel and aluminium fittings.
French Doors Vs Bi-Fold Doors: How to choose?
The choice between whether to choose a french door or bi-fold door style for your external door normally comes down to space. French doors open outward on a hinge so require patio space for the doors to sit. Bi-fold doors fold to one side of the doorway so are more space-efficient.
Sliding doors won't take up any extra space as one pane will simply slide behind the other.
Are Patio Doors Safe?
Because of their large glazing, there can be a concern that patio doors are not as safe as solid doors. At Aspire Doors, all of our doors have additional security features to keep your home as safe as possible. We use high quality, toughened glass, which also has a low U-level for extra insulation. Many of our exterior doors, like our Horizon Bi-Fold Door, come with multi-point locks for additional safety.
