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.

Boasting a number of benefits when compared to a bi-folding 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!

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, it defies the size of the glass wall that’s 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.

The Magic Ingredient: Aluminium

 

The strength of an aluminium profile ensures that individual panels can be manufactured well in excess of five square 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 sightlines both at the head and foot of the door, but also a slim sightline 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.
