Our sliding patio doors combine beautiful powder coated aluminium and large panes of glass to create bright, open spaces. Using the latest design and manufacturing processes, sliding doors from Express let the outside in, while maintaining excellent energy efficiency.
Sliding doors are a great alternative to bi-folding doors for areas around the home where you want to maximise your light and view outside. With fewer moving panels, sliding doors offer larger glass panes than other door types, with our XP View offering the largest glass panes over 1.2m.
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 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.
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.
