When it comes to sliding doors in Sydney, there are a couple of main varieties you’ll want to take into account.
We’ll also cover how to get your sliding door repairs done here in Sydney. Of course, that is the service we provide.
But let’s have a look at the different types of sliding doors you can buy.
Aluminium & glass sliding doors
Most sliding doors are a beautiful glass sliding door with an aluminium frame.
These types of doors are nice and lightweight. They provide an easy to open mechanism, and they lock nice and securely.
So, your aluminium glass sliding doors are by far the best. They have an aluminium frame, which keeps it nice and lightweight, and they’ve got a glass interior.
You want to make sure you’ve got a nice sturdy lock as well.
Components for Sliding doors you need to consider
Now what we want to do is have a look at the types of components that are in your sliding doors when you’re looking to buy them.
Unfortunately, most of the sliding doors that you will be able to purchase nowadays come with cheap parts, so it is important that you have a look and consider the types of internal parts that go into your sliding doors.
If you buy the cheaper quality parts within your sliding doors from a cheap manufacturer, then you’ll find that you have to replace them and they become broken, damaged, and need repair quite quickly.
By far the most common element, and the most significant element, to your sliding doors in Sydney, are the rollers.
Rollers in your sliding doors
The rollers that you get are very important. Hopefully, you’ll get heavy duty stainless steel double bogie style rollers.
This means it’s got two rollers to hold the weight of the door, as opposed to just a single roller.
The most common thing we find when fixing doors in Sydney is the rollers are too flimsy relative to the weight of your door.
When you are looking to buy a door, make sure you have a look at the types of rollers that are on the bottom of the door, or the top if it’s a top-hanging door.

Sliding Doors for all weather conditions
The different types of outdoor doors are very important.
Most people still have that glass sliding door, and you want to be mindful of any wooden doors that you might have that would be exposed to the elements.
Not such a great idea, so most outdoor sliding doors are glass with an aluminium frame.
Cheapest sliding doors Sydney
A lot of people do look for the cheapest sliding doors in Sydney, and that is not necessarily the way to go.
As mentioned above, what you want to focus on are the following:
- How heavy is your door
- Are the rollers sturdy enough to take the weight of the door over time?
If you are purchasing a heavy door then you must have robust rollers. Otherwise, they’ll break down very quickly.
The lower the quality of your rollers, the more costs you will incur and getting your sliding door repaired.
You want to make sure the rollers have good bearings in them to continue rolling smoothly and not get stuck or caught.
