Neuffer offers a range of vinyl frames as a base for your sliding door, each with a unique set of insulation and security features. Whatever your choice, all will be custom built to match your existing home or the style of your new one.

Designed & Built Just for You

Each of our frames provides the basis for your custom lift and slide door. White vinyl is a thing of the past. Today's patio doors are extremely flexible when it comes to colour selection. While it cannot be painted directly like wood, the entire RAL range is available as are decorative foils which can mimic woodgrain or aluminum. This not only gives you countless colour options, but has the added benefit of further protecting the exterior frame from weather wear and minor scratches. Finally, you also have the choice of selecting a different colour on the outside and inside.

Barrier-free

Low threshold or barrier-free flush thresholds are also available whether to assist the elderly, prevent children from tripping or to just make life a little easier. Barrier-free lift and slide doors are produced in accordance with ISO regulations and are yet another advantage to this particular door type.

Strength & Security

Large glass surfaces can be a tempting target for intruders. This is why Neuffer offers high security doors with a multitude of options for bolstering their security. Ground level doors should be toughened and fitted with some or all of the following options.

  • Multipoint locking
  • Locking handles
  • Mushroom cams
  • Concealed hinges
  • Laminated safety glass

Laminated safety glass should be installed on the outermost pane at least in order to provide an added layer of security and make breaking the glass difficult. It is typically found in vehicle windshields, storm windows and other areas requiring impact resistance and no glass shards to be produced when broken. In addition, the multi-chamber profiles of vinyl frames are extremely difficult to pierce or break apart. Roller shutters are another option which can be installed and offer the benefits of improving security, insulation and privacy simultaneously.

U-values & Thermal Performance

With glass comprising most of the overall door surface, it is important to choose the appropriate glazing for your desired energy-efficiency needs. Standard frames like the IDEAL series will provide good performance for your average household and be a step up from older and domestic windows. The Energeto series is aimed at those aiming for excellent U-values and looking to maximize their energy savings. We offer both double and triple glazing options, various warm edge spacers and optional argon gas filled spaces between panes. The distances between panes can also be changed to provide larger gaps capable of better insulation.

Finally, the frame itself still plays a major role in the overall rating. That is why the Energeto series is designed with multiple internal chambers and carbon fiber reinforcement in place of steel, to avoid thermal bridging. Finally, internal chambers are filled with precision high pressure throughout the entire frame to further boost its insulating value and achieve even Passive House performance.
