The folding sliding doors with the flush track make both our kitchen and garden seem twice as big as before. We have made the most of the new space and enjoyed big parties with the dining table half in the garden and half in the kitchen!

AG, London

I wasn't sure about the oak folding sliding doors in an oak framed house, but we took the advice of your sales manager and the finished look is wonderful.

LS, Dorset

We had our Grand Slider doors fitted last week as a key part of our on-going self-build project here in Oxford. I just wanted to say a big thank you; I am absolutely delighted with the quality of the doors, which work beautifully, and they look very imposing at the front of the house.

John, London

The two fitters who did the work were, helpful, and most importantly, did a really excellent job. I should also add that dealing with the admin side was also very easy and straight forward.  Doing our own self-build has been a real roller coaster, but this was one of the really smooth bits!

AM, Oxfordshire

We are delighted with our new doors. From our visit to your display centre all the way through the delivery and installation your team have been exemplary in customer service.

DM, Surrey

Thank you to everyone at IDSystems including the great team of installers. We have been very pleased with the company, products and the staff from start to finish.

SH, Kent

The doors are fantastic and the team who fitted them were polite, helpful and good at their job, thanks very much for such an efficient service.

JS, Surrey

We have to say that the whole process of dealing with IDSystems and the various members of the staff involved has been a pleasant experience. All too often, it is, unfortunately, the case that contractors fail to live up to their promise - but you excelled yourself.

MP, Essex

We were very impressed by the design, fit and overall appearance of the door system. Please pass on our thanks to both teams of fitters and especially the surveyor who came to measure the arch originally for his time and accuracy - despite awful weather conditions.

RW, Yorkshire

I would just like to say how delighted we are with how our sliding doors look. From our initial contact with you to the fitting everything has gone exactly to plan, what could have been a very stressful experience has been exactly the opposite.

OF, London

Absolutely gobsmackingly fantastic.

Architect, Hertfordshire

When the salesman visited, we were filled with confidence through his technical knowledge and belief in the quality of the products. From that initial point through to the final installation, we were pleased that we chose your company and would gladly recommend you to anyone.

IEJ, Norfolk

The guys who fitted the conservatory were marvellous and completed the job to my complete satisfaction, a credit to your company.

LB, Cambridgeshire

Everyone that I dealt with in your company was so knowledgeable, efficient and helpful that they complimented the end product, excellent and highly recommended.

IH, East Sussex

The IDSystems staff were so helpful (and patient) all the way through the ordering process and the fitters were excellent. They phoned to let me know they were running late because of heavy traffic and then worked late into the evening to finish the job, oh and the doors look great as well. Thanks!

TC, Berkshire

An extremely professional installation carried out by your fitters, who were pleasant and courteous. As these doors are a large part of our budget, I am glad I decided to go with your company as the end result is miles ahead of cheaper alternatives on the market.

PB, Essex

We are absolutely thrilled with the doors and throughout your staff provided the excellent service and the installation went smoothly.

RT, London

The fitters were lovely and meticulous in their work, worked long days and showed me what I needed to know very thoroughly. Your admin staff were also very patient and everyone I spoke to was very helpful. Many thanks!

TW, Rickmansworth

This is the second set of doors we have ordered from IDSystems and the ordering process was very easy again. The staff, including the surveyor, were exceptionally helpful and the installation team went out of their way to make life easy for us.

BB, Suffolk

Great doors, the very efficient staff both from ordering to installation. Doors fitted in super amazing time and they work and look beautiful. Very happy customer!

SR, London

Our doors are finally in, after much planning and some lengthy battles with our architect and builders this week feels like a real milestone. The fitters were brilliant, the doors look amazing and our ugly duckling of a house is nearly finished!!

Our house is finished!! Thank you so much to IDSystems for your help, support and patience - we love our doors so much and couldn't have done this without you!
