Sliding Doors

The capabilities of our industry leading door systems create more of a moving glass wall than a door. The system is attractive and slender, yet secure and robust enough to house a double glazed unit weighing in up to 200kg in our XP Glide System and up to 400kg in our heavy duty XP Glide S system. Despite these large glazed areas, the door system is manufactured and engineered to such a level that it glides at the lightest touch.

 Our Sliding Door ranges include:

Boasting a number of benefits when compared to a bifold door, supersized sliding patio doors boast massive glass areas which completely open up a room or property, flooding it with light, and allowing you to enjoy views without the obstruction of the vertical transoms.

An aluminium sliding door offers a feasible alternative to bi-folding doors, with the largest sash width available on the XP View being 1200mm. This is the widest of any folding door system in the world, yet our sliding doors can easily double this! For design ideas and examples of our market-leading sliding door installations, look through some of our sliding door case studies.

The differences between our various sliding patio doors.

We offer an extensive range of sliding patio doors, each offering their own benefits and unique selling points. We don’t want you to be overwhelmed by the various ranges on our website so the quick guidelines below explain the key differences between the door types.

A traditional sliding door - The XP Glide is our best-selling patio door it’s a wonderful product offering slim sightlines of just 35mm, whilst offering large glass areas within individual panels capable of being made well over two metres wide.

Lift and slide patio doors are heavy-duty sliding doors, which are effortless to operate as the door glides on lifted ball bearings, a smooth quiet movement that defies the size of the glass wall that is moving. The XP Glide S can also be dropped down into the track so it locks in any open position, ideal for parties or when children are playing in around the huge glass doors.

Glass panoramic sliding doors are simply stunning, minimal structural profiles are bonded to the glass creating a door which minimal frames offering the real wow factor.

Slim-line sliding doors

With larger frames & extremely slender frames our sliding doors add a real impact to any home. We boast two sliding door systems even with a sightline of just 35mm, creating more of a glass wall than a door. Our sliding doors look absolutely stunning when closed because of the huge areas and glass & minimal frame, which is why our sliding patio doors are becoming increasingly popular.

The Magic Ingredient: Aluminium

The strength of an aluminium profile ensures that individual panels can be manufactured well in excess of five sqaure metres, creating a striking visual impact whether you are viewing the product from inside or outside the property. Despite their strength, the profiles are extremely thin, meaning minimal sight lines both at the head and foot of the door, but also a slim sight line where the panels meet.

Choose Your Favourite Track

A sliding door boasts a minimal amount of aluminium and truly maximises glass areas, offering large clear openings. The system can be manufactured with any number of panels, with a traditional twin track system offering the option of two or four panels and a triple track option offering between three to six sliding door panels. A triple track system can offer a 66% clear opening, while our unique face fixed additional panel can create a 75% clear opening with four panels stacked behind one another on a triple track system.
