Mercury Glazing has announced a tenfold increase in demand for its aluminium sliding doors last month compared with the average for the year.

Director Steve Cross reports that the sales growth comes across the entire aluminium patio door range that the Gloucester-based business offers, including wide-span sliding doors.

“As a specialist aluminium window and door fabricator we offer our customers the reassurance that they are working with an expert business when it comes to the manufacture of high-quality aluminium sliding doors,” he said. “As the boom in the sliding door market continues, we’re becoming the obvious partner for installers and builders looking to tap into this growing market trend.”

He continued: “In the domestic sector, more and more consumers are discovering what sliding patio doors have to offer when it comes to the trend for big expanses of glass. The aluminium sliding patio door delivers on this trend better than any other option as the construction allows for wider glazed panels, up to 3000mm wide, and fewer vertical frames to break the view, which customers find appealing.”

The company manufactures the Cortizo 4700 aluminium patio door.
