A premium product manufactured & installed by the experts

The growing trend for maximum glass & minimal sightlines has seen manufacturing & installation methods evolve to meet the demand for minimal glass sliding doors within luxury new-builds & renovations. We have been manufacturing innovative products for years and the production of our slim-line patio doors is no different. Prior to manufacture we inspect the glass that will make up most of the doors on our purpose-built glass checking area. Specialist lifting equipment is then used to position the glass in place for our engineers to bond the framework to the glass. Meticulous attention to detail is given throughout the production phase, which once complete leads to a cool down period where we leave the bonded frame to cure to the glass for a strong & secure product. The bespoke doors are then wrapped and stored safely until the installation is set to take to place.

XP Slide Panoramic + Frequently Asked Questions.

Is there visible profile at the top and bottom of the door?

No, the sliding door sash sits within the doors outer frame so is completely concealed.

Does the outer frame need to be concealed for the door to look right?

No, the depth of the outer frame is only 59mm at the head and down the sides so even if this is not concealed internally and externally it is still a relatively slim frame because there is no visible sash. You have 59mm of profile and then glass, the transom is then only 25mm so even with the outer frame visible this is still a slim-line, glass sliding door.

How does the door lock?

The door contains three lock catches and keeps and a two-point shoot bolt lock. The contemporary handle has a built-in latch that you push down when the door is closed to operate and secure the five-point lock. The latch also boasts a lockable key cylinder for UK building regulations.

The track is drained straight down onto a 44m high base profile that the door sits on. The base profile is sloped a sloped and is designed for the drain the water away from the doors into an external drainage system. The height of the bottom track is substantial at 103mm and it has been designed to completely concealed for a flush finish inside to out. Because the track is substantial it is important to liaise with our team early in your project to ensure the openings are prepared correctly for this aspirational product.

Are textured elite and essence colours available with this door?

No, because the frames are so slim textured paint can create friction within the door, so we recommend a smooth powder coat finish.

Are integral blinds available within this slim-line sliding door?

No, because of how the door is manufactured we cannot offer integral blinds within this product.

What is the maximum size of this door?

For ease of handling during manufacture, transport and installation we like to limit the width of each panel to 2250mm and the height to 2700mm.
