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.
He says: “We know that today’s homeowners focus on design-led aesthetics without wanting to compromise on practicality. 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.”
Anthracite Grey is a popular choice for PVC-U products, not only patio doors, because it gives a sleek aluminium aesthetic. At the same time, it has all the practicalities associated with PVC-U such as exceptional thermal efficiency, excellent security and low maintenance.
The other key trend is the requirement for wider aperture openings, reflected in a strong upturn in sales of PatioMaster’s Triple-track system. Simon comments: “The Triple-track system is a great alternative to a bi-folding door, offering wide openings with fewer panels to interrupt the view. 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 six metres wide, with two or four sliding sashes that stack neatly behind each other when opened, even on smaller frame sizes.
Simon comments: “PatioMaster doors give homeowners the aesthetics they want. They 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 concludes: “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.”
