An excellent way to use your outside space as a way to expand your interior space is to have a wider opening with two or more glazed doors, and opting for classic French doors or modern folding doors is the perfect way to really open up your home to the outside. The large glazed areas of these doors can brighten the darkest rooms, by bringing in the maximum amount of natural light.

La Porte Vista glazed folding doors


XL Joinery's stunning range of glazed folding doors provides a fantastic opportunity to create a light, airy, and open space that extends easily outside. They are the more modern alternative to traditional sliding doors, but they offer the advantage of being able to fully open up a doorway, rather than having static panels that limit the way a door opens. The La Porte Vista doors are designed to provide a real wow factor to any home for a discerning buyer. Like all XL Joinery doors, they are produced to the highest standards and built to cope with the rigours of everyday life, while presenting a truly striking look.

All the units in this range come fully finished, with a choice of rich medium oak stain to emphasise the natural grain of the wood, or with a stunning white finish that is bright and modern. This means you can easily coordinate these doors with internal doors that are oak or white primed, to compliment your interior décor as well as livening up your exterior. White doors are particularly effective for reflecting light into a room to naturally brighten it. However, all La Porte Vista doors have large clear glazing panels, so natural light will flood into any room with these doors, making it seem larger. The pre-finish ensures a consistent finish across the doors and frames, and also makes installation significantly quicker as they do not need to be finished on site. These sets come complete with doors, frames, and all required hardware in chrome, with aluminium external sills.

These doors use an engineered construction which improves their strength and security compared to solid oak doors. Engineered doors also utilise more of the timber and create less waste. This helps protect the environment whilst keeping the manufacturing cost down, so we can provide a better value for money product while using sustainable materials. These doors are Chain of Custody certified, this means you can be sure the product is from a responsible source that can be tracked to the origin tree. For extra security, all doors are fitted with a multi-point locking system and security hinges. For insulation, the doors are double glazed and filled with low E-Argon gas which means they have a minimum U-value of 1.8W/m²K and are fully compliant with Part L of Building Regulations. 


For a truly consistent look throughout your entire home why not consider choosing Pattern 10 internal doors as they fully complement the La Porte Vista folding doors.

The Ellipse range have deep rectangular u-grooves around the face of the door that effortlessly complement the Pattern 10 border design and the Vista folding doors.
