A touch of class

Each of our sliding doors is available with a colour matched D-shaped handle as standard.

We also offer a range of optional alternatives including two straight feature handles with rectangular or round profiles for a more contemporary look, these are available in stainless steel or power coated in our standard colours. Alternative you can opt for the same handles in a cranked design, ideal for configurations where the doors meet in the middle or incorporate a moveable corner post.

For an ultra-sleek appearance our colour-matched recessed handle sit within the frame of the door and allow the panels to pass over one another, whilst if you opt for a lift and slide capability within the specification of your doors, a longer handle that operates this functionality is included as standard.

Hugely popular aluminium sliding doors

This heavy-duty twin or triple track thermally broken aluminium sliding door system enables you to create large exterior openings, maximising glass area and minimising framework. This truly is the giant of the sliding doors.

Sightlines (intermediate frame widths)

Having narrow sight lines minimises the amount of frame and increases the amount of glass, maximising the view out.

Frame depths

The depth of the frame from front to back is an important consideration, the slimmer the frame the less obstruction that is caused when the doors are viewed at an angle.

Glazing method

The sealed glass units on theEDGE2.0 are structurally bonded into the frame of the panel, reducing the need for traditional beading to hold the glass in place which results in a significantly narrower intermediate frame width (sight line).

Glazing 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.

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


A special thanks to your installers, whose diligence and attention to detail far surpassed our expectations... We look forward to using our doors in the summer months ahead!
