About Sliding systems

When you really want the ‘wow factor’, minimising the interruption of the view onto your outside space all year round, maybe you should opt for a sliding glass door system, rather than a folding door system.

So, what’s the difference?

The main difference between a sliding system and a folding door system is that, with a sliding system the view onto the external landscape is less obscured, because less profile (or mullion) is needed. One panel of the system will always remain as a dividing glass section within the opening – in contrast to folding sliding door systems which can open up completely.

ODC 300 sliding doors in motion

Whether floor to ceiling glass walls with minimal frame, a simple sliding door in an extension, or sliding walls of glass in shop fronts, the ODC sliding systems range is comprehensive and can accommodate the most challenging of designs. Our robust solutions can accommodate a single sash of glazing of up to 1000kg, with a height of up to 6m and a width of up to 4m.

All of our systems can be double or triple-glazed and are available in an array of configurations and opening options.

To help you navigate these choices, ODC’s team of experts will help you to make key decisions such as: how many glazed panels you would like for your system; what level of thermal insulation or ventilation you need, how narrow would you like the profile to be, and what kind of opening mechanism you prefer – slide or lift and slide. These choices will determine the best sliding system for your requirements.
