Please could you share any tips about how to choose a new patio door?

I'm after a new sliding patio door, probably in uPVC to match the windows. There are loads of door manufacturers and it's hard to know how they differ. On top of that, I've found a lot of different installers local to me - who all claim great service!

:?: What should check out? Thermal performance and whether the frames are thermally broken? Are there different types of glass (low-E) or manufacturing that improve thermal performance? How about PAS24 certification for security?

Also, are there any questions that I should ask installers to see if they're any good?
