Swiss-designed slide and turn doors

The innovative vistaline slide and turn door system offers an industry-leading combination of precision engineering, advanced thermal performance and ultra-slim 45mm sight lines.

Real Homes award 2021

Multi award-winning design

The innovative design of the vistaline slide and turn system has been recognised by independent experts and award judges. The doors have been selected by both Real Homes magazine as the 'Best of the Best' and Build It magazine for its quality, design and performance.

Innovation from IDSystems

The best of both worlds

Designed with narrow sight lines like sliding doors but with the ability to create a complete opening like bifold doors the vistaline slide & turn system provides the best element of both types of system.

Thin Sightlines Icon

Ultra-slim frames

Maximise the view with intermediate sight lines of just 45mm, which is less than half the width of any bifold door on the market. With no hinges or locking mechanisms required on individual panels the panels overlap reducing the intermediate frame widths considerably.

Industry leading

At IDSystems, we strive to bring you the latest innovations in glazing - as we have done for 20 years. The vistaline system is truly unique, there is simply nothing else on the market that provides the advanced design and performance. Put simply, vistaline is in a class of its own.

Advanced Swiss design

Made in the UK by our own experienced fabricators, every vistaline system is hand made to a detailed Swiss design and manufactured to highest standards of quality and precision engineering, with low U-values from just 1.1W/m²K.

Weather Icon

Patented flipper seals

vistaline slide and turn doors feature innovative retractable weather seals in the top and base of the track to provide advanced weather performance. When the doors are closed the handle operation expands the side jamb, compressing the doors together to form a highly effective weather seal between the panels.

Stacked Frames Icon

Extremely versatile

Designed with a choice of double or triple glazing and with either inward or outward opening panels to meet the requirements of your build, each can be up to 1100mm wide and 2650mm high.

User friendly design as standard

User-friendly design

The unique nature of the doors means that when the vistaline panels slide they do not encroach on to the floorspace inside or the patio outside. The individual door panels slide on a single track before turning and stacking beside the lead door. The doors can also be partially opened for ventilation should you require.

Shield with Padlock Icon

High security

With no external hinges or hardware, innovative ridge and groove connection between the panels and multipoint locking in the side jam, the vistaline system provides excellent security protection.

Advanced flush track

The system is available with an advanced flush track that does not reduce weather rating thanks to its innovative retractable weather seal technology.

Panel Size Icon

Large openings achievable

vistaline slide and turn doors can be configured with up to fourteen panels (with 7 panels sliding from each side to meet in the centre) for openings as large as 14m wide. Each panel slides in one direction with the doors stacking to that end when opened.

Smooth running

The top-hung system is precision engineered for easy operation and silent opening. The doors slide effortlessly to one end before turning to stack at right-angles to the track - creating an unobstructed opening and breaking down the boundaries between inside and out.

Diamond Icon

High-quality components

The system's chromed steel mechanisms and running gear are designed and engineered to the highest quality, providing peace of mind and performance.

    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!
