Information About Your Midrail
This will split your patio door vertically visually; you determine the height of the midrail at a later point.
Midrails supplied on a patio door will be required should you wish to install a letterbox. This also allows for, if you require, a panel in the bottom of the patio door as opposed to glass. The width of the midrail supplied is 115mm.
This is the position of the midrail opted for in the door sash section of the patio. The measurement is from the bottom of the frame to the centre of the 115mm midrail.
If you do not select a custom midrail height this is supplied automatically at 850mm measured from the bottom of the frame to the centre of the 115mm midrail, if you select yes then can select the height you desire the preset selection is 850mm. This height you input is measured from the bottom of the frame to the centre of the 115mm midrail. Please note this does not include any cill or frame packers requested.
A trickle vent is an opening that is fitted into the opening vent at the top of the frame.
A trickle vent allows a small amount of ventilation,that can be opened or closed.
It is ideal for people who do not like to open their windows often, if no air bricks are in the room, or if your property suffers with condensation. our standard size for the trickle vent is 4000mm2 and 2500mm2 dependant on the sash size.
Due to the location of the trickle vent a frame packer needs to be added to the head to allow for plaster lines. This is done automatically for you.
Toughened safety glass is required in certain areas. Please see the building regulation information page if unsure whether to use toughened glass or float glass.

The rating of your glass represents how energy efficient your glass is.
A Rated is the best glass for energy rating, while none rated is the lowest but also the cheapest.
The acoustic value represents how much sound the glass can dampen; the higher the acoustic value the more sound it can dampen. High acoustic glass is ideal for areas where there is going to be a lot of external noise.
The makeup of the units will change in line with your choice here.
The colour of the spacer bar will be shown between the glass units.
Insulated glass sealed units (IGUs), also known as double glazed units, are constructed with two panes of glass that are kept apart by a spacer bar (or pane spacer) that sits around the inside edge of the glass.
