The capabilities of our industry leading door systems create more of a moving glass wall than a door. The system is attractive and slender, yet secure and robust enough to house a double glazed unit weighing in up to 200kg in our XP Glide System and up to 400kg in our heavy duty XP Glide S system. Despite these large glazed areas, the door system is manufactured and engineered to such a level that it glides at the lightest touch. Our Sliding Door ranges include: The XP Glide - our best selling sliding patio door The XP Glide S - Heavy duty lift and slide door The XP Glide R - a more cost effective and slender lift and slide door. The XP Slide Panoramic - Structurally glazed panoramic glass sliding door. Hi-Finity - Electronically operated structurally glazed panoramic sliding door. Boasting a number of benefits when compared to a bifold door, supersized sliding patio doors boast massive glass areas which completely open up a room or property, flooding it with light, and allowing you to enjoy views without the obstruction of the vertical transoms. An aluminium sliding door offers a feasible alternative to bi-folding doors, with the largest sash width available on the XP View being 1200mm. This is the widest of any folding door system in the world, yet our sliding doors can easily double this!

The Drina River House You’ve always wanted a house surrounded by a moat, right? Everyone has!! But how about taking it a step further and building your home in the middle of a river? Well, that’s what a group of boys decided to do in 1968 when they were looking for the ideal spot to sunbathe. 9. Casa Do Penedo The Casa Do Penedo, which means the house of stone, is in the Fafe mountains of northern Portugal. The 16.5-foot-tall house, built at 2,600 feet above sea level, is often referred to as the ‘Flintstones House’, and it’s clear to see why. 8. The Crystal Mill The Crystal Mill is one of the most famous, and isolated, homes in Colorado. It was built on a rocky outcrop in the Crystal river, and is surrounded by the most amazing views! It’s about 6 miles away from Marble, and is close to the former town of Crystal. 7. Katskhi Pillar How far would you go for your beliefs? Religious devotion can lead people to make big sacrifices for their faith, but one monk has taken the idea of isolation to a whole new level. Maxime Qavtaradze has spent the past 20 years living in a cottage on the Katskhi Pillar- a 131-foot-tall rock that stands above his monastery in Georgia. 6. Wordie House If you like the cold, and staying indoors for most of the year, then maybe this is the place for you. Wordie House is one of the most remote buildings on the planet- located on Winter Island in Antarctica. 5. Long Studio The Long Studio, on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, Canada, was built to give artists a secluded space to work. The modern structure has been built on a series of stilts to raise it above the ground- which makes it feel as if it’s hovering over the landscape. 4. The Solvay Hut Located on the north eastern ridge of the Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland, the Solvay Hut is the highest mountain hut owned by the Swiss Alpine Club, at 13,133 feet above sea level. 3. Ellidaey Island If you really want an isolated home, and an entire island to go with it- then how about Ellidaey island in Iceland? It’s a part of the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago to the south of the country, and there’s quite a mystery to the place. 2. San Colombano Hermitage First built in 1319, the San Colombano hermitage was named after the Irish Saint Colomban who, according to legend, took up residence in the cave after vanquishing the dragon that originally lived there. A small church was then built at the entrance to one of the small caves to provide accommodation for pilgrims and monks. 1. Just Room Enough Island Just room enough island is, as the name would suggest, a small piece of land that is just room enough for a house, and barely anything else! It’s one of the almost 2,000 islands of the Thousand Islands chain on the New York side of the St Lawrence River, and is the location of one of the most famous isolated homes in the region. Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!
In 2012 we supplied and installed two small bi folding doors to the front of this charming family home in Aberford, Leeds. When the home owners later decided that they wanted a contemporary extension with an orangery style roof over the kitchen and dining area we were the only Company considered for the specialist glazing products. The combination of superb taste and design of the homeowners, the skill and craftsmanship of the building contractors www.kent-build.co.uk and of course our very own expertise in manufacturing and installing architectural aluminium products has created a stunning setting worthy of any property lifestyle magazine. The modern minimalist kitchen is complimented by the striking triple track sliding door which creates three picture windows looking out onto the landscaped garden and patio area. The flat roof floods the kitchen with natural light thanks to two of our XP Sky View flat roof skylights, our modern Skyline roof lantern has been hipped installed into the pitches of the roof, and a feature shaped window has been installed at the front of the extension as an additional glazed feature. This project is the perfect example of the diversity of our product range. Having supplied every glazed product in the extension it shows how our products can be mixed and matched and whether you require folding or sliding doors, roofing products or bespoke shaped products we have both the product portfolio and the expertise to exceed your requirements.
The renovations have included new aluminium windows throughout including three bay windows at the front of the property.
The sliding door itself is a triple track three panel patio door with an additional panel fixed to the front of the track. This additional panel allows all three remaining panels to slide behind it creating a 75% clear opening as opposed to the two thirds clear opening which is the maximum created with a standard triple track sliding patio door.
The benefits of sliding doors in comparison to folding doors are the minimal aluminium sightlines and the large glass areas which are not broken up by numerous folding panels.
Perfectly demonstrated here these huge sliding glass panels are ideal when attempting to create a modern open plan living space.
The entire house benefits from a sophisticated lighting control system including mood lighting and zonal light controls.
Both the design and building work for the transformation of this property was carried out by IA Building Contractors in South East England. The imagination of both the architect and the client, as well as the undoubted skills of the building contractors has created a home which is unrecognizable from the original property. It has virtually doubled in size and is a very impressive project which both Express Bi Folding Doors and IA Building Contractors are delighted to have been involved with and to add to our project portfolios.
