Doors can serve as much more than just doorways into and out of your home. The designs of our lift and slide doors are a tribute to that reality. Yug Buildtech's lift and slide doors make homes more accessible to all people and have a much sleeker appearance, which improves the aesthetic appeal and beauty of your home's outside. Choosing a lift and slide door style from our choice of uPVC lift and slide doors that you think would look great in your home is a great way to add a sleek and fashionable touch to your home. Because of their lift mechanism, lift and slide doors have a unique design.
A static rail is attached at the bottom of the outer frame on a typical sliding door. Small rollers under the vent support the door as it moves along the bottom rail. Sliding doors have extremely little room between the rail and the vent to maintain adequate water and air tightness, causing severe friction and rubbing of the seals, even on brand new doors. Sliding doors become increasingly difficult to open over time as debris and rust restrict the clearance even more and the roller bearings wear out, especially on bigger elements. On older slider doors, you've undoubtedly noticed it yourself.
By using a mechanism that lifts the door up before sliding, European lift and slide doors avoid the problems that plague standard sliding doors. It can be utilised with virtually any sliding door design, from traditional two-panel configurations to multi-panel, corner-less arrangements that cover the width of a home or structure.
A pulley system lifts the vent as you turn the handle down. The vent is free of its seals and has extra space between it and the bottom rail. With the touch of a finger, the door can now be slid open. The rail is lowered when the handle is returned to its original position, and the vent is seated on the bottom of the frame for maximum air and water tightness.
