    Am planning on a 2390mm x 2090mm upvc sliding door (2 panels) but have second thoughts that maybe the panels will be really heavy to slide. My wife in particular is a little thing and I'm worried she'll struggle. Does anyone have thoughts on how wide before the doors get annoyingly heavy?

    They also do 3 panel doors.
    I don't think it's the weight that makes it awkward, but the size of the glass.
    Ask a local pvc centre, they'll tell you the solution.
