Made to order to suit single doorways, double doorways and stunning glass partitions with side panels and top panels.
Sliding glass doors can be a fantastic solution where space is at a premium. Maximise the light and space in your home with our beautiful bespoke sliding glass doors.
A wide choice of track designs from our 'pelmet type' where the runners and clamps are hidden inside the track, to our 'pole type' where stylish rollers run visibly along the track.
Selected tracks can come with features such as our DISTANCE profile which enables the glass to clear the full opening width - even on walls with skirtings and architraves, and 'Soft Stop' where the door is stopped and gently guided to the final position.
This type of glass door is usually fitted with flush fitting handles or pull bar handles. We have a large choice in different styles, finishes and sizes.
Our glass and hardware options give you the opportunity to design a door that is unique to you.
We can sandblast your own personal design.

Frameless glass sliding doors are a fantastic way to save space, and to create bright,light open areas in a home. As the doors open sideways, then don't impact on the room in the way that a hinged door would when it swings open. There are sliding tracks for all sorts of sizes and configurations. The wide choice of glass means that sliding glass doors can be subtle and seamless, or create impact by becoming almost a piece of home artwork.
Beautiful, yet functional at the same time.
If the wall opening doesn't have a frame of architrave around it, then you would measure the internal width and height of the opening. If there is an existing frame and architrave on the wall [ie if you have removed a timber door and want to install a sliding glass door] then you measure to the outer edges of the architraves. This is so that we can make sure the fixing position for the track is higher than the architrave.
The information is on our PDF measuring template. You can download this at the top of the page.
We design glass doors so that anyone can install them. Please be aware thought that glass doors can be heavy and a little awkward to handle, so we recommend that installation is performed by two people.
It is important that the wall is of solid construction.
Some clients like to purchase a complete service, including survey and installation. Subject to the project location, we can offer this at an additional cost.
Sliding glass doors are made to order. Your choice of glass, sliding door track and handles, together with the size, will all affect the cost.
To give an idea of the cost, based on 8mm toughened glass in size 800mm x 2000mm, with our most popular Project 60 sliding door track and Project flush handles you should expect to pay around £530 with clear glass, £565 with satin glass, and £655 with linea design sandblasted glass.
These price indications include the VAT, but do not include the delivery cost.
It is possible to have key locks and bathroom locks on sliding glass doors. However, this will limit how far the glass can overlap the wall opening, as you need to be able to access the key hole of bathroom turn from both sides of the door. There is also a minimum and maximum distance that the glass can be from the wall. Therefore, it can limit your choice of track.
If you have pull bar handles, then the door will open as far as the handle will allow. Flush handles are designed so that the glass can open all the way back, meaning that the wall opening [passage width] is fully clear. This can be useful if the doorway is quite narrow.
For safety and performance, the glass always needs to stay within the small floor guide. Hence, if you want to open the door fully back, then the guide has to be fitted in front of the wall and not in the doorway. If you have skirting on the wall that might be in the way of the guide. In that case, the glass has to be a little further from the wall. Some of our tracks have a 'distance spacer' accessory to make this happen.
Glass doors are toughened to BSEN 12150 Class 1. This meets with all UK safety regulations. Unless the glass was subject to some kind of impact, then it would be very unlikely to ever break. If it did break, the toughenening process means that it would shatter into small pieces. Messy, but not likely to cause great injury.
That being said, glass doors should always be used with the same care and attention that is paid to any other item of high quality furniture. Never use excessive force and ensure that glass doors are installed and used in accordance with instructions.
The glass is cut to size and prepared with the necessary drilled holes and cutouts for your hardware. It is then toughened to BSEN 12150 Class 1. The edges of the glass are polished, and lastly, if you have chosen a design, then that is sandblasted onto the glass and finished with a protective coating.
Clear Glass: standard or low iron
8mm, 10mm, 12mm
Glass naturally contains iron, and it's the iron that gives standard glass a slight green hue. It is in all standard glass, but is more apparent in the thicker glasses that are used for glass doors. Hence, low iron glass has become the glass of choice for interior design. Most of the iron is removed to give better clarity, purity of colour and very high levels of light transmittance
Satin Glass: standard or low iron
8mm, 10mm, 12mm (not low iron)
Made by acid etching one face, Satin glass has a uniform, 'silky smooth' appearance that diffuses light to give a soft, natural appearance. It has excellent light transmission and a high level of privacy.
Ideal for bathrooms, and the preferred choice for plain opaque doors as it is a durable surface that needs no additional protection.
Linea Design Glass: standard or low iron
8mm, 10mm, 12mm
Linea Design refers to sandblasted designs that employ straight lines or angular shapes such as squares.
The most popular design is as above: 4No equally spaced clear lines. However, the lines can be as wide or narrow as you wish, and positioned wherever you would like.
Special Design Glass: standard or low iron
8mm, 10mm 12mm
'Special Design' refers to patterns that feature curves, logos, lettering and infact pretty much anything your imagination can contrive.
DESIGN YOUR OWN DOOR. You can either let us know your idea and we can design the artwork for your final approval, or you can provide your own artwork in a print ready format.
Deep Sandblasted glass: standard or low iron
The designs are sandblasted 0.5mm into the glass surface.
With this method, satin glass can be sandblasted with a design to give a 3D effect, so that you can have a pattern, whilst having no clear parts in the glass.
It's also possible to deep sandblast tinted glass, and to paint the design with a colour such as silver.
Metal oxides are added to the glass in production to give a bronze, grey or dark grey tint. As this is in the glass composition, it is called 'body tint'.
Glass can be completely sandblasted or patterned with linea / special designs.
Tinted glasses are also used for solar control as they reduce the light transmittance
Colour | Bi-colour Glass
Colours are the result of a complex process of cold lacquering sprayed by hand on low iron glass, and finished with a protective coating. Coloured glass can be either single colour or bi-colour. Bi-colour, is two different colours separated by a clear strip.View Colours...
