Choosing Sliding Doors

Over the years, sliding doors have become increasingly popular. Not just from their style point of view, but where space is limited, they offer a great space saving solution. Why? Because they don’t require as much open peripheral space to function, compared to doors that swing from a hinge. So, what is there to think of when choosing sliding doors? We’ll tell you…


When it comes to product development, design and ease of movement, sliding doors outnumber their competitors. This new desire for sliding doors is thanks to the idea of contemporary living spaces and the need to transition our homes into the outside area too.

At JELD-WEN, we offer a number of sliding door options. In a larger space like the living or dining area, our room fold products would be better suited for this environment. For smaller spaces, like pantries or utility rooms, would benefit from our Grange sliding doors. And finally, for bathrooms our Infinity sliding doors is the space saving solution.


Modern timber sliding doors tend to be slimmer and stronger – some are even available virtually frameless. All in all, they can be considered more functional than lift and slide doors and even automatic sliding doors. They’re effortless to open, regardless of their size.

JELD-WEN timber interior doors are fully accredited by the FSC and PEFC, which certifies that our timber is sourced from responsible forestries. So, you can rest assured that your new sliding doors have been sourced in a highly ethical and sustainable way. What’s more, our Infinity sliding door range is made from toughened safety glass, for guaranteed security and is completely safe. Want to make a fashion statement? Our Infinity range also offers a printed frosted glass option, to achieve both additional privacy and style.


Designing and manufacturing stylish products is a must. That’s why our curated by JELD-WEN Grange sliding doors offer traditional frames, ledged and braced doors and contemporary shaker panels – either 1 or 4 panels. Our doors are also available as unfinished or primed white, ready for treating or painting when in situ. On the other hand, we have our Infinity glass sliding doors which are available in a choice of two frosted pattern designs. So, you’ll be able to create a clean and sleek look with Horizon, or a trendy design with Abstract.


With our JELD-WEN sliding doors we offer full timber, partially glazed or fully glazed options – there is also a choice of glazing that is both clear or translucent. As our Infinity sliding doors are fully glazed, this allows for maximum light transparency in your home, making smaller spaces feel bigger and naturally improving your mood.

Available internal doors for wardrobes, room dividers and space savers, we could have just what you’re looking for.


Just like doors, your hardware needs to suit your style too. Our curated by JELD-WEN Infinity and Grange sliding door collection come with a choice of track options and handles, so are completely customisable to you.



All sliding doors from our Curated by JELD-WEN range come with a 5-year guarantee on the door itself and a further 1-year guarantee on hardware. So, you know you’re covered.


In the UK, the JELD-WEN have been producing doors for many years – it’s safe to say we’re specialists in what we do.
