Installing sliding doors in your home is an ideal way to open up your rooms to the outdoors, especially if you’ve got lots of space to work with. Thanks to the rise in popularity of aluminium, frames are now slimmer than ever before, meaning you can create a ‘glass wall’ effect in your spaces and virtually unobstructed views. But which brand should you choose? Here’s our guide to three of the top sliding door manufacturers in the industry.

Expert advice from the windows & doors specialist for London & the Home Counties. Compares Origin, Schuco & Smart Systems sliding doors. Find out more about what they have to offer, including guarantees, sizes & colours.Origin

Origin is one of the UK’s most reliable window and door manufacturers, and one of the standout benefits of selecting their products is the impressive 20-year guarantee. Most other manufacturers will only offer up to 10 years, so this is a great reason to choose this brand. When installing Origin’s ‘Inline Slider’, you can opt for anywhere from two to six panels when deciding on the configuration with each panel size up to 3 metres in height and 2.2 metres wide. They offer handles in four colours, frames in over 150 RAL colours and have ultra-secure locking. With u-values of 1.3, they’re an excellent choice for those looking to improve energy efficiency in the home. Sightlines can be as narrow as 20mm, letting natural light pour into your rooms.

Schuco produces German-engineered windows and doors and is renowned for being a luxury brand of the highest quality. Their aluminium products are loved all over the world by architects and homebuilders, and thanks to the larger glazing elements available, they’re also chosen for commercial property applications. Each panel size is made to measure up to 3 metres wide and 3 metres tall, and they provide 2 to 6 panel configurations. As well as having 1.3 u-values, burglar-resistant security and unlimited RAL colours, they also offer a fully concealed electronic e-slide opening mechanism. This is something not offered by many other manufacturers in the industry, allowing you to open and close the doors at the push of a button, even if you’ve installed floor to ceiling ‘lift and slide’ doors.
