Default Double Glazing

I'm shortly going to replace 3 patio doors & one french door with double
glazed upvc units.

With the current aluminium patio doors, both panels can be opened ~ are
there any manufacturers that offer this style in UPVC as most of the ones
I've seen have only 1 opener?

Any suggestions for a reputable company in SE Wales?

TIA

Mike

usually they will recommend a tradesman who you could work out a deal with.

Not neccessarily, read "work out a deal with".


So it's really back to square one....


The point of going to the manufacturer is to answer the OPs question:

"With the current aluminium patio doors, both panels can be opened ~
are there any manufacturers that offer this style in UPVC as most of
the ones I've seen have only 1 opener?"

Then you work out a deal with a tradesman and you've cracked it.

Is there really any advantage, given that most PVC ones allow you to
choose which one opens? Assuming sliding types.
