    Blinds for Sliding Doors

    We can neatly fit a blind into the frame of the moving part of the door, for neat-looking blinds that don't obstruct the movement of the doors.

  • No Obtructions

    No Obstructions

    The free-hanging blind is fitted away from the fixed part of the door, so there is enough room for the sliding door to move behind it while the blind is still extended.

  • Free-Hanging Blinds

    Free-Hanging Blinds

    If the moving door slides behind the fixed door, we can still cover the area by using free-hanging blinds over the whole area.

    This also allows you to have both blinds extended while the door is open.

  • Roller Blinds

    It is also possible to use free-hanging roller blinds in front of all parts of the sliding door, however this will mean that we cannot fit any of the blinds next to the glass, resulting in larger gaps between the blinds.

Sliding Door Blinds

We are able to fit blinds to sliding doors so that they don't interfere with the operation of the doors, while still looking like a neat and natural part of the room.

If you have standard sliding patio doors, where the moving door slides closely across the face of the fixed door, then you have two main options for how you can use blinds.

One option is to have a free-hanging blind fitted above both parts of the door, so that the doors are able to slide freely behind the blinds.

The benefits of this option is that it works with almost every type of sliding door, and allows you to have both blinds extended while the door is open - although it will mean that the free-hanging blind in the open doorway will start to move in the breeze. The main downside of fitting blinds like this is that it means both blinds need to be fitted on a bracket away from the wall, so there is enough space for both of the doors behind it. This will create extra gaps around the sides of the blinds, which could let in heat and light.

You also have the option of a recessed blind fitted to the moving door, with free-hanging a blind fitted to the fixed doors, so that the only the moving doors slides behind them. This is a much neater option, as it means only one blind has to be hanging away from the doors, resulting in neat fitting blinds with fewer gaps.

The best blinds to use for sliding doors are either our pure™ Pleated Blinds or Duette® Pleated Blinds, as they can both be neatly fitted into the moving door, or be fitted with a free-hanging system such as LiteRise ®  or SmartCord®

If you need to use free-hanging blinds to cover both parts of the door, then you can also use the Visage or Vision window blinds, or conservatory roller blinds.
