We use Liniar’s premium ModLok patio doors, made from uPVC. UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is a strong but lightweight and low-maintenance material perfect for keeping the warm air in.
UPVC is a great substitute for painted wood and a cheaper alternative to timber or aluminium. This is why uPVC patio doors are often available with a wood grain effect.
Choose from a wide range of styles to suit your home, and then trust our experienced team to manage the project with minimum fuss.
PVC and uPVC are two vinyl materials used in the construction industry thanks to their durability and flexibility. However, despite what you may see online, PVC is not used to make doors due to its chemical composition. PVC is more commonly used for siding and fencing, whereas uPVC is used for windows and doors.
UPVC is much more durable than PVC. UPVC doesn’t contain phthalates or BPA, making it a safer product for the environment, while still maintaining the benefits of a vinyl patio door frame.
One of the most common problems is jammed tracks. However, Liniar’s ModLok patio doors are designed with built-in track brushes to sweep away debris before it causes any problems.
Although they are easy to clean and low-maintenance, unfortunately, patio doors cannot be customised once installed. This means you can’t sand, paint or polish your patio door after installation. We suggest you choose the style you know you’ll be happy with for a long time.
UPVC is a robust, rigid material, with the ModLok steel reinforcement and multi-locking system for added strength this patio door frame provides a high level of security for your home. Double-glazed uPVC patio doors are resistant to impact and it would take a real effort to break them. This is also true of triple-glazed uPVC patio doors, for added protection and thermal resistance.
UPVC expands and contracts slightly in more intense weather conditions. However, it's completely normal for windows and doors to swell during the hotter months.
It’s very rare that uPVC patio doors crack, and the reason for this is usually poor installation. However, every one of our professional workmen has years of experience in measuring, building and installing bespoke patio doors. You only have to look at our reviews.
UPVC patio doors can fade over time. This is usually due to sun exposure, and you’ll likely notice it more on south-facing doors. That being said, this happens over a long period of time, giving the colour of your uPVC doors a lifeline of around 15 years.
In short, yes you can paint them. However, we suggest not to, since uPVC is not designed to be painted and therefore needs extra care such as specific paint requirements. It's best to choose a style that suits your home from day one.
Whilst it is possible to do so, we don’t recommend that you attempt to fit them yourself. You wouldn't want to risk compromising the security of your home by installing them on your own. Not to mention void your warranty by installing them incorrectly.
Our Liniar ModLok patio doors are super easy to clean. If the inside gets a little grubby or dusty, all you need is a damp cloth and dish soap! A proper wash of the exterior twice a year will also do the trick. Always remember to keep your tracks nice and clear from debris too.
