Origin Frames, the UK’s leading trade supplier of bifolding doors has launched a brand new product, the Origin Inline Sliding Door.
Showcased at the 2017 FiT Show held at the NEC in Birmingham, the substantial and highly impressive Origin stand revealed a new slimline and very contemporary sliding door alongside their bifolding and residential doors and aluminium windows.
Introducing the New Origin Inline Sliding Door.
The Origin Inline Sliding door offers Origin installers the opportunity to provide a sliding door product from the same Origin brand name. Technical specifications and further information is not yet available, however we were able to see several great features on the product Origin had on display.
An ultra-slim sliding door.
Origin has designed their forthcoming sliding door as an ultra-slim sliding door, rather than a conventional aluminium patio door with thicker sight lines. The first obvious feature of the Origin sliding door is the interlock. The central mullion on the Origin sliding door comes in at just 20mm, placing it as a serious contender amongst the growing range of slimline sliding doors on the market.
Given the very high cost of many slimline sliding doors presently available, we think Origin will capture the market with a sliding door product that should be priced far more competitively. We would envisage the Origin sliding door being very competitively priced amongst slimline sliding doors, although no prices are yet known.
A sliding door with a double or triple track.
We understand the Origin sliding door will be available with the choice of a double and triple track. This should provide homeowners with a sliding door having a big choice of opening options and the facility for sliding panels to slide to one side as well.
One of the great features of the product seen at the FiT Show was how it had been installed with a recessed outer frame and track. The recessed outer frame and track gave a great ‘frameless’ appearance to the sliding door. No doubt the product will be suitable for standard installation as well.
A secure and weather tested sliding door.
The forthcoming Origin sliding door will no doubt feature very secure locking systems and great weather performance. You can expect high security locking, several in-built safety features as well as superior weather performance.
The new Origin sliding door is coming soon.
Origin already manufactures a premium range of aluminium products under the Origin Home range and the sliding door is a natural addition to this range. For the residential market, few brands are as well known as Origin. The unbeatable lead times, the 20 year warranty and the renowned after-sales service are one of many reasons Origin has grown into one of the best home improvement brands in the UK.
Since this article, we have a full review of the new Origin sliding door. Our first impression of the Origin sliding door is the ultra thin sight lines and a product that meets a big demand for slim sliding doors with large glass panels. We understand heights of 3 metres will be possible with this new door from Origin.
Sliding doors were without question, the most dominant of all aluminium products at the FiT show. Few companies know their target customers like Origin. We think with the manufacturing quality, lead-times, huge colour choices and Origin service to its dealers, this new sliding door will be a sales success.
