The lift & slide door system means heavy sliding doors can be opened effortlessly up to 450kg per panel.

Whetstone Lift and Slide Door System.

Our Lift and Slide door features hardware from German company Hautau. The system offers the ultimate solution for large sliding doors.

Like the design of sliding doors for cars and vans, lift-slide door systems separate the sliding and sealing/locking actions from each other. Lift & Slide allows the door panels to be lifted above the track and slide (roll) easily when opening or closing the door. When lowered, the door locks, creating a better weather barrier and excellent security.

The systems allow for effortless operation, minimal friction, excellent weather resistance and monumental sizes of up to 4.5 meters wide by 3.3 meters high per panel depending on weight.

The system allows for extremely efficient glass of various thicknesses.

We can easily adapt retractable fly screens, or sliding fly screen doors.

Benefits of a Monumental Lift & Slide Door System.

  • Doors can be built to the size of an entire wall which makes them the ideal choice for expansive openings
  • Sliding doors are perfect for opening outdoor areas and improving sun-rooms, alfresco areas, or rooms with spectacular views
  • Wider panels mean fewer mullions obstructing beautiful panoramic views
  • Lift and slide panels have reduced drag and wear of the weather seals when compared to conventional sliding doors, thus improving lifetime and performance.
  • We can adapt retractable fly screens to suit.
