Case Study – Slimline Sliding Doors In Henley

We’re delighted to show you another example of our work. This time, we want to focus on slimline sliding doors and how they helped enhance this home. The ones you can see here are a market-leading product manufactured by Origin, who are based just up the road from us in High Wycombe. We know the owners and directors personally and have collaborated with them many times. Origin sliding doors are designed to allow in as much light as possible and are stylish and strikingly modern.

The Project

We became aware of this job thanks to our sister company Abbey Windows. The customer was looking for a way to make their kitchen and dining area brighter and airier. They lived a short drive away in Henley, and when we saw the beautiful garden at the back of the property, we immediately understood why they wanted a better view. 

After some consultation, this customer chose a set of grey Origin sliding doors made with high quality aluminium. Their sleek lines and contemporary aesthetic look terrific next to the house’s subdued colours and traditional vibe, and they deliver an exceptional performance too. The smooth gliding motion allows them to welcome visitors in style and connect their living space with the outside world. 

These doors have some outstanding security features. Aluminium is an inherently strong and durable metal, and the doors will protect this home from the elements, no matter how severe the weather might get. Additionally, the exclusive six-point pincer action lock, unique security handles and other features mean that any unwanted intruders will have serious difficulty breaking in. But don’t just take our word for it; Origin slimline sliding doors have achieved Secured By Design accreditation, so you can be assured they’ll keep you safe. For complete peace of mind, they even come with a 20 year guarantee. We’re confident this customer will never need it, but if the unthinkable happens, they’ll be covered.

One Happy Customer

As you can see from the photos, this installation looks terrific. It was a privilege to be involved in this job, and we think the results speak for themselves. This home is brighter and airier, and our customer was delighted. They’ll enjoy these sliding doors for decades to come, and we’re confident they’ll never have to rely on the guarantee. These sliding doors are built to last, and we think they were the ideal upgrade for this home. 

Origin slimline aluminium doors are the perfect choice if you have a project similar to this proud Henley homeowner. Alongside their exceptional security values, they provide superior insulation and noise reduction qualities. Plus, the optional low thresholds and access ramps ensure that anyone can enjoy more sunshine in their homes. They make houses quieter, warmer and more comfortable, regardless of whether it’s a traditional home or a new build. 

As an additional bonus, these doors also feature an innovative locking system that allows them to be left partially open, but still secure. This means you can increase the ventilation in your home without compromising your safety. And if you’re not a fan of grey, they’re available in multiple colours and can be customised to very precise tastes. These slimline aluminium sliding doors can transform a home and we know you won’t be disappointed.
