You can also have triple glazed sealed units, but weight and size restrictions will apply.

The Smarts Duraslide 2000 Sliding Doors combine style and performance, using high specification hardware to provide a smooth easy-glide opening action. Strong and built to last the high specification hardware results in maximum panel weights of up to 200 Kg, far exceeding the weight requirements of even the largest doors we can fabricate.

Handle Options

For these doors you can have either a traditional D-handle or a stylish P-handle. Both options provide an ergonomic user friendly handle, with which to operate the doors, so only personal preference dictates which one you choose.

Both handles come with key locking, the D-handles are available in either Matt Black or Anodised Silver and the P-handles are available in Gloss White, Chrome, Gold or a Matt Silver finish.

Track & Rollers

These doors are bottom hung and sit on high strength rollers that can take sash weights of up to 200Kg. The hardwearing nylon rollers support the entire weight of the doors and when combined with the stainless steel track, result in a smooth gliding opening action.

The rollers are concealed by the sliding sash, which overlaps and runs on the track like a monorail.

Security Features

When anyone has new windows or doors installed in their home, security is always at the forefront of their mind. That is why all of the doors have been designed and manufactured with security in mind. Not only giving people what they want, but what they need; excellent security without compromise. With these doors you can have piece of mind and rest assure that your home is safe and secure.

The key security features of these doors are outlined below:

Duraslide 2000 security features
  1. High Security Multi-point Locking
    These Patio Doors are fitted with high security multi-point locking as standard. The locking mechanism consists of a total of four bi-directional hook locks, which fully secure the sliding panels and help to prevent them from being lifted out of their track.

    The locking mechanism is operated by lifting the small lever on the handle, when the door is closed.

  2. Anti-Lift Blocks
    It is highly recommended that external sliding doors are fitted with an anti-lift device. The anti-lift blocks on these doors are designed to prevent the sliding panels from being disengaged from the track. This is a common method of breaking into sliding patio doors. Once the sliding sashes are inserted into the frame, this simple yet effective anti-lift device is fitted to the top and bottom of each sliding sash.

    This device restricts the movement of the panels, so that they cannot rise up and out of the track, they also act as a guide, assisting in the smooth sliding action of the doors. When combined with our high security multi-point locking, they practically eliminate the threat of someone attempting this method of forced attack.

  3. Mono Rail Frame Construction
    The door panels on these patio doors slide on a monorail style track, which acts as both a guide and security measure. The sliding sashes sit on the mono-rail shaped outer-frame and track, which protrudes up into the sliding panels. When closed the sliding panel wraps and covers the outer-frame jambs, in the same male to female coupling action, to conceal the locks and keeps.

    This makes the locking mechanism almost impervious to attack and also helps to prevent the panels being lifted out of the frame.

  4. Key Locking Handles
    When closed the doors are secured by using a key to lock the cylinder, which in turn locks off the handle and prevents it from being used to operate the locks. These cylinders are highly pick resistant and drill resistant.

  5. High Security Glazing
    These Patio doors are glazed using a high security wrap-around glazing system, which provides both added security and ease of installation. Since the sliding sashes are constructed around the sealed units, the glass can only then be deglazed by taking the sliding sashes out of the frames and deconstructing them.

    The glass in all of our aluminium doors is toughened safety glass as standard, which is much harder to break than standard float glass. You can however further increase the security of these doors by upgrading to our laminated security glass.
