This aluminium sliding door system is very versatile. You can specify which panels are to be fixed, whether to have all panels sliding, or even an extended track running parallel behind a wall or fixed screen so the panel slides out of sight to give a completely clear opening.

The Grand Slider II maximises the glass area while minimising the framework. This heavy-duty twin or triple track, thermally broken system enables you to create large exterior openings. And with such a well-engineered system, you can be sure of the highest security, a severe weather rating, and smooth effortless operation.

The height of contemporary design

The latest and most advanced sliding door in the IDSystems product range is theEDGE2.0 ultra-slim sliding door. The advanced technology has enabled us to reduce the intermediate sight lines to an astonishingly narrow 20mm.

Sight lines (intermediate frame widths)

Finding the right balance between the width of the frame and the size of the panes of glass is critical, the more glass area you can achieve the more light you let into your home and the better the view out could be.

Glass options

When required, we fit toughened glass to comply with Building Regulations Document N. As an alternate method of compliance we are able to fit laminated glass. Both options have their pros and cons.

Toughened glass
Toughened glass has been heat tempered to increasing its strength over the ordinary annealed glass by up to five times. Other than the strength the advantage of toughened glass is that should it break it would shatter into non-sharp pieces. It is also available with the widest variety of coatings and can be supplied in larger sheets than equivalent thickness laminated glass.

When the glass is toughened it can suffer from some visual distortion making, meaning the face of the glass is not perfectly flat distorting some reflections.

Laminated glass
Laminated glass is manufactured by bonding two panes of annealed glass with a clear plastic interlayer. The benefit of laminated glass is that if it’s broken the glass will crack rather than shattering, improving security. In addition, laminated glass reduces bleaching of carpets, curtains and furniture by filtering UV rays that would usually penetrate the glass.

The drawback of laminated glass is that extreme heat or cold can cause invisible defects in the glass to form a crack due to the two panes expanding and contracting independently. As the laminated glass is not toughened is does not suffer from the visual distortion that can occur to toughened glass during the toughening process.
