Smooth, effortlessly stylish and very strong, Sliding doors from leading manufacturer Origin
Shard Solutions sell the Origin Home Collection, which consists of the finest aluminium architectural solutions, manufactured and designed from the highest quality components. An integral part of this collection is the Sliding Door Range.
Two systems are available – the Origin Patio Slider and the Origin Artisan Slider. There are four different sightline options within these categories. They’re both modern, architecturally striking variations on traditional patio doors, utilising sliding glazed panels to form an entrance or exit. Complete flexibility is provided by the ability to slide doors all the way to the left, all the way to the right, or staged intermittently. Despite the differences in sightlines, both systems offer a perfect combination of aesthetics and function.
With its ultra-slim sightlines of just 20mm, the Artisan Slider is a structurally bonded aluminium system. This material’s inherent strength makes it suitable for incredibly large glass expanses, making it both visually stunning and practical. It looks spectacular over large apertures. This sleek, minimalist design protects your property while keeping the weather out. The Artisan Slider creates a huge impact in any room with barely visible 20mm sightlines, giving you a wide-screen view of your surroundings. Furthermore, as all Origin products are bespoke, you can customise your door to look and work exactly how you want.
The Patio Slider (OS-29, OS-44 and OS-77)
With its classic design, the Patio Slider fits into any style of home. Completely bespoke, it can be customised to coordinate with your taste. A door set can add effortless elegance to any home, regardless of whether you’re building or remodelling. Depending on your preference, you can choose between 29mm, 44mm, or 77mm sightlines. You’ll get an abundance of natural light with the OS-29, which is one of the slimmest systems in the UK. The OS-77 has a more traditional style with wider sightlines and the OS-44 offers the best of both worlds. This Patio Slider is made of high-quality aluminium, providing a practical and elegant solution without compromising security.
Every Artisan Slider comes with a streamlined lever handle for an elegant finish. This architecturally stunning and aesthetically pleasing design, blends seamlessly into the frame while remaining hard-wearing and practical. With the same meticulous attention to detail and pursuit of perfection that goes into all Origin components, every handle is built to last and is the perfect finishing touch to your patio door. For the Patio Sliding Door range, choose from an all-in-one handle and lock featuring a thumb turn, a stainless steel offset bar handle or a traditional patio handle. The latter is available in an array of colours.
The right configuration for you
Sliding Doors from Origin and installed by Shard Solutions are available from two through to six door configurations, ensuring there’s an option to suit your home and space. With large maximum panel sizes and slim sightlines, it means the aluminium profile is minimised and glass is maximised, so natural light can flood into your home. Shard’s team can provide advice and ideas to bring your vision to life after inspecting your plans.
Protecting you and keeping you safe
With a minimum of six points of locking, each Artisan Slider locks solidly into either the jamb or adjacent door. Plus, there’s only a handle on the inside, so there’s no lock outside that could be picked.
On the Patio Slider, this also features a multi-point lock and the security goes one step further, as both the OS-29 and OS-77 can achieve PAS 24:2016 status. The locks, amongst other safety and security features, ensures that an Origin Sliding Door installed by Shard Solutions is ultra-secure and will keep your family protected.
Keeping your home thermally efficient
Thermally efficient doors from Origin make a world of difference to your home. With thermally broken doors, you’ll reduce your energy bills in the winter, enjoy a refreshingly cool indoor environment in the summer, and use your room all year round. Additionally, the Artisan Slider uses low-emissivity glass (low-e coating), which reflects heat back into the room. With a U-Value of 1.4, every Artisan Slider meets British Building Regulation requirements for the UK market, regardless of project size. A polyamide thermal break is used in every Patio Slider, just like the Artisan Slider. This, along with weather tight seals, allows the Patio Slider to achieve U-Values as low as 1.3 depending on the glass used.
