How do aluminium lift and slide doors work?

Aluminium lift and slide doors sit on a track when closed. To open a lift and slide door turn the handle, this will raise the door up on the rollers. This makes the lift and slide door really easy to move due to the reduced friction. When the door is in the desired position simply push the handle in the other direction and the door will drop smoothly onto the track again. The door is now locked in that position.

We will be closed from Wednesday 23rd December and will reopen on Tuesday 2nd January.
