The first factor, which needs to be considered for these items are the material of the door, as it plays a huge role in deciding the look of your patio. French patio doors have been an eternal favorite with people because they are made of wood and they are durable as nature makes it a very good investment option. Wood patio doors never go out of style and it has a timeless appeal. Once you have decided about the type of material that needs to be chosen for the door, then you can move over the style which you would prefer your patio door to have. A couple of years back it was easier to make a choice for these doors, due to the dearth of versatility of these products, but today, it is a different story altogether. The consumer has a lot of options at his disposal. Since there are so many styles and designs available for these doors, you can select a piece, which seems compatible with the entire look of the patio.
Because slide-and-pivot doors have no hinges, there is no requirement for a sturdy side frame; its only purpose is to cover the gasket that seals the double glazed unit. This means that the views afforded through the expanse of patio doors have minimal interruptions. At the time of writing, there are two versions of frame-less glass doors available in the UK, both using the slide-and-pivot technique: one manufacturer supplies their frameless glass doors with kite-marked double glazed units which have a visible seal, the other uses an almost transparent method of sealing their double glazing. Contemporary by design, the absence of visible characteristics makes frameless glass doors a viable option for period properties.
Remove the two screws holding the bottom section of the frame. There is one screw either side of the bottom section. Once these have been removed the bottom section can be prized away from the rest of the frame. Be careful not to lever against the glass or you could shatter it. When the bottom section is clear from the rest of the frame you will be able to remove the wheels. Some wheels have a screw holding them in and some are pressed into a holding bracket. If the retaining screws have rusted you can carefully drill them out, taking care not to make the hole in the bottom section any bigger. Contact your local Hardware Store, Glazing Shop or search on Google for replacement wheels.
