Quickslide is a well-established business specialising in the manufacture of sliding sash windows, casement windows and doors, bi-folding- and sliding patio doors in PVC-u, Aluminium and Timber.
Quickslide’s bi-folding doors glide on stainless steel rollers, which allows for unrestricted thoroughfares and maximum use of space and light. The smooth contours and curved clean lines create an attractive aesthetic that will compliment any home, whatever your taste or style.
Glass specification is key when affecting the doors’ thermal performance as glass generally accounts for 80% of the surface area of the doors. Each door set carries 28mm double glazed units incorporating soft coat toughened safety glass as standard.
