Large aluminium sliding doors are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners look to add that seamless transition to their home between the indoors and outdoors.

With the larger doors comes the challenge of fitting sliding door handles which are fit for purpose to move these doors. And with the handle often being the crux of the door, and what ties the overall impression of the door together, it’s important to choose the right handle for your aluminium straight sliding doors.

You want a handle which combines style with durability whatever the location. In addition, it needs to be strong enough to slide your door leaf and to fit with whatever locking system is fitted to your door. Coastal’s Research and Development Team have brought all these requirements together with our flagship BLU range, combining timeless beauty with ultimate lasting performance to make the perfect finishing touch for your aluminium sliding doors.

BLU™ KM9 handle on a luxury beachside restaurant at the Watergate Bay Hotel

The KM9 patio door handle was selected to replace a zinc alternative handle on a luxury beachside restaurant at the Watergate Bay Hotel. In less than one year since installation the Zinc handle was showing signs of significant corrosion. Since then, the KM9 has not only had no problems with corrosion but is more in keeping with the aesthetic.
