The XP Glide S is a premium specification lift & slide patio door. The lift & slide system is highly robust, with excellent thermal efficiency and is suitable for installations into the most exposed locations in the UK.


The system enables you to lock the door in any position when open. As the door lifts onto the ball bearings the quality of the system minimises the weight, meaning a glazed unit weighing 300kg can easily be slid to one side. The system has superb weather and thermal performance and has been slimmed down for 2018, including a slender 40mm sightline section available on twin track systems, creating a glass wall with the additional benefits of lift & slide performance and operation.

Security is really important to us here at Express, so we’ve made every effort to ensure that our sliding doors are as secure as possible.

Manufactured using a liquid component injected into the panels, our sliding patio doors set rock-hard, making each panel light and easy to use, but solid as concrete.

Our aluminium sliding doors offer best-in-class security with features such as:

  • Door gearing which collapses and locks around the rollers securing the panel in place
  • Multi lock keeps
  • Interlocking profiles on sliding panels
  • Anti-lift blocks in the head of all panels
  • Internally glazed
  • Secured by Design accreditation available

Our dedication to quality engineering means that the XP Glide S is available as a certified Secured By Design sliding door.


Your sliding double doors are designed with the safety of you and your family in mind. They’re installed with a flush bottom track to eliminate trip hazards – and to get rid of those unsightly upstands.


Security Lock Barrel Cylinders as Standard

Premium lock barrels are supplied as standard throughout our entire range of doors, including our XP Glide S sliding doors. We only use 3-star diamond rated BSI cylinders – they exceed the 2-star standard for Secured by Design accreditation, offering anti-snap, anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump technology. We even supply these cylinders on the interior of the doors, so your doors are just as secure on the inside as the outside.

Supplied by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lock cylinders, the keys can be cut at any locksmiths without any need for a specific lock card. We are proud to work with such high-quality suppliers, as we believe that they are the perfect complement to our industry leading range of products.
