Aluclad uPVC Lift and Slide Doors

Premium Performance at Affordable Prices

Neuffer's lift and slide doors offer large glass surfaces, save valuable space and are manufactured from premium materials. They are the perfect solution for maximising sunlight and enjoying large panoramic views of the outdoors. Aluminium excels at both standing up to the elements and maintaining its great appearance with minimal upkeep. UPVC, probably the most widely used material today, boasts excellent insulation abilities and functionality. Together, they provide a premium, modern look for your façade, with great energy efficiency, virtually no maintenance and all at a budget-friendly cost.

Overview & Advantages

Enjoy huge uninterrupted views of your garden or property with a lift and slide door. They are a fantastic addition to any home, adding open space and flexibility to any room. Lift and slide doors link patios and gardens to your home and enable your family to move in and out with ease. Moreover, aluminium clad uPVC offers an excellent price-performance ratio thanks to the combination of two complimentary materials. Advantages include:

  • Outstanding energy efficiency
  • High security with tough exterior aluminium shell
  • Easily open large sashes with one hand
  • Available in the entire RAL range colours and decors
  • Durable: uPVC is weatherproof and requires extremely little maintenance
  • Saves space with no swinging or folding leafs

Neuffer offers a range of aluclad uPVC frames to create your individual sliding door design. Each one offers 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.

Minimal Maintenance Required

Since all of our aluminium surfaces are anodised and thus corrosion-proof, there is virtually no need for regular upkeep. The same applies to the uPVC frame. Compared to timber, they can remain in like-new condition for a long time with only minimal maintenance. Occasionally wiping down the frame and glass with a wet cloth is as difficult as it gets!

Your Choice of Colours

Aluminium-PVC frames can easily be tailored to your individual needs with the entire RAL colour scale at your disposal. For the aluminium, the chosen colour is then applied via powder coating while specialized foils are applied at the factory directly to the uPVC frame.

All colours and finishes are applied at the factory. Aluminium surfaces are anodised and powder coated while special foils are applied to uPVC frames. Both provide additional resistance to scratches and increased weather resistance.

Reliable Burglary Protection & Security

Given its synthetic core, aluminium-PVC lift and slide doors are already quite robust, easily resisting outside force and providing excellent protection against burglars. However, the additional exterior metal shell improves this even further. 

Large glass surfaces can be a potential vulnerability depending on their location. A second or third floor balcony door presents little risk while ground level doors should be configured with further security options. These include multipoint locking, shootbolts, locking handles and concealed hinges. 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.

High-performance Thermal Insulation 

Since most of the doors' total surface area is glass, your choice of glass plays a major role in overall energy efficiency, U-values and security. With external doors, it is important to ensure that energy is not lost, whether that be cool air in summer or warm air in winter. Choosing double or triple glazing will go a long way towards ensuring this as will optional non-conductive warm edge spacers and argon filling between panes.
