LIFT AND SLIDE EFFORTLESSLY

Lift & slide your way to a more energy efficient home with our XP Glide R sliding door system. Our energy efficient sliding doors are premium quality, offering excellent thermal efficiency that can achieve overall U values as low as 1.4W/m2K.

DESIGN & ENGINEERING

The XP Glide R is a slender lift & slide system with a slim outer frame and a sightline of just 69mm on twin track doors and 98mm on triple track sliding doors. The system also boasts an intelligent built in drainage system meaning the door is ideal for exposed locations whilst still maintaining a contemporary and sleek aesthetic.

The ease of operation of the XP Glide R is immediately noticeable, and the lift & slide mechanism also means the door can be locked in any position, making it ideal for properties with children, for gatherings or to simply allow some ventilation whilst still having the door locked and secure.

SAFETY & SECURITY

SOLIDITY COMES AS STANDARD

Solid as concrete, but light and easy to use. Our sliding doors are manufactured using a liquid component that’s injected into the panels, which sets hard as rock. So if you’re looking for sliding doors that are secure and reliable, you’re in the right place.

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

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

DESIGNED FOR SAFETY

We’ve designed the XP Glide R sliding doors with safety in mind, too. We know that you’ll get a lot of use out of your doors, so we’ve made sure that every project is installed with a flush bottom track, so you don’t have to worry about little ones tripping up. It looks much more aesthetically pleasing without the unsightly upstand too.

TOUGH LOCKS

Security Lock Barrel Cylinders as standard

We know that it’s important that your external sliding doors are as secure as they are stylish, which is why we use premium 3-star diamond-rated BSI cylinders throughout our door range. Anti-snap, anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump, these lock cylinders we use exceed the 2-star standard required for Secured by Design accreditation.

We supply these cylinders in doors with half a barrel, so our sliding doors are just as secure from the inside as the outside. Put your mind at ease with our secure sliding doors.

The keys for our sliding doors can be cut at any locksmith, unlike other Secured by Design standard lock barrels which need a specific lock card to have spare or emergency keys cut. The lock barrels themselves are supplied by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lock cylinders, complementing perfectly our industry leading range of products.
