The wow-factor sliding door design in your home

There’s no better or more stand-out sliding door than the Sunflex pocket sliding door. In the closed position, they’re just like any other luxury sliding door.  It’s when you slide them open you see the panels disappear from sight into the wall and creating a genuine fully open aspect.

Despite their advanced engineering you still get all the high specification, performance and security of the standard Sunflex SVG20 or SVG30 models. Every Sunflex door shares the same quality, luxury and attention to detail.

  • Door panels from 800mm up to an 18m wide aperture
  • Completely flat and flush sliding door track
  • Designed to hide even the wall pocket when open
  • Maximum security and incredible weather performance

Key Features

Bespoke functional and impressive sliding doors

Sunflex pioneers the sliding door market with some of the best sliding doors and the pocket slider is no exception.  You get the same elegant sightlines at the door mullions and slimline frame elsewhere.

The extra is how these doors move and hide away via an extended track in the wall pocket. Clean, neat and promising to give you a truly special door in your new extension.

Sunflex Pocket Sliding Door. fully open

Even the most advanced sliding doors on the market need somewhere to slide to and rest.  As a result, there’s no 100% clear opening with a sliding design. The Sunflex pocket sliding door does it differently, finally letting you enjoy virtually all of the available door opening.

There’s no better way to create the ultimate open elevation at the back of your house and the very best indoor-outdoor experience.  Best of all, these doors look amazing in a modern setting.  The perfect doors for your home.

Design and Specifications

The perfect indoor-outdoor living experience.

There are two options for designing a pocket sliding door.  The better way remains within the wall cavity of a newly built extension.  However, it’s also possible for these to slide European style on the outside of the wall, over the external structure.

There’s no more stylish and modern option for when you want the architectural design statement in your home.  However the best feature of these doors, is just like bifolding doors, is how you get to open up the entire door set.


Sunflex Pocket Sliding Door

Sunflex Pocket Sliding Doors. even more space

Bifolding doors take up space to slide and fold. The regular sliding door design needs at least two panes.  The Sunflex pocket sliding door gives you even more design freedom, without the restrictions of regular patio doors.

As well as giving you more of your available door opening to enjoy, the space also appears larger with no static doors in the way. This design also lets you use fewer and larger door panels.

Security and Energy Efficiency

Secure and highly insulated pocket sliding doors

Whether you choose the super slim SGV30 or the classic SVG83 grand slider, both come with near-identical specifications and the same flawless product quality.

Multi-point locks on both doors come securely operated via star rated cylinders and robust door handles. The safety and highly energy-efficient double glass unit with the insulated frames provide outstanding 1.4Wm2K U-Values for both door types.

Your new sliding doors keep you safe and warm thanks to toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill.  For extra peace of mind, you can upgrade to laminated glass and meet Secured by Design security standards.

The advanced Sunflex factory expertly crafts your new doors with an obsessive attention to detail and product quality.  The door locks are some of the best and come with a better design. No more unsightly door locking pins or keeps with the doors fully open

Appearance and Customisation

Simply better looking sliding patio doors

Study the Sunflex Pocket Sliding Doors closer and you’ll see genuine attention to detail and care.  The tracks are neat and seamless, with cover plates creating a uniform look.  The flush threshold looks neater and cleaner without the grooves and lines of other sliding doors.

Clever design is obvious in how these doors stack flush.  Once again this makes a fully open door look much better. You also get a bigger clear opening than other sliding doors. A great advantage on smaller door openings and where you need to maximise the opening available

Sunflex Pocket Sliding Door

Choose your opening method, configuration, colour and handles

The inline sliding method lets you open and close your doors with the familiar push and pull action.  Choose lift and slide and the operation of your doors comes via a multi-functional door handle.

You get the choice of double or triple tracks letting you slide your doors to the left or the right.  Then there’s the choice of over 150 powder-coated colours.  Finally, there’s acoustic, sun-control, enhanced security glass and even self-cleaning.

Sunflex pocket sliding door – more space and light

The Sunflex Pocket Sliding door adds an altogether different dimension to your home and your new extension. Designed for new-build openings, these ingenious and innovative sliding patio doors make the most of your home. They disappear into a wall pocket and therefore, out of sight.

Working with you, your builder and your architect, we’ll expertly design these doors and create a modern and standout extension while making the most of your structure and letting the doors rest within it. You benefit from a substantially larger available clear opening.

Thanks to ‘Aluhome’ for first class (well Informed) advice with regard to the suitability of replacing our existing ... French doors with a Less obtrusive Aluminium framed Sliding Door system.What a difference! - the views into our garden now they are clear of window frame obstructions is delightful. This coupled with more natural light to the interior, is another bonus.The installation was carried out by fitters who clearly knew their trade and with the minimum of inconvenience to us.We are happy to report that the finished job from appearance, practicality and quality, exceeded our more

Tim and his amazing team have been a godsend during our extension project. His advice and friendly chats together with... his highly experienced team of surveyors and fitters made the whole experience simple and hassle free. What he doesn’t know about his products isn’t worth knowing and we came away from the showroom feeling knowledgeable and that we’d made a great informed product choice. A big thank you to the whole team, and I promise once the garden's done and the kitchen's in we will update our photos which currently I’m almost embarrassed to upload as they don’t do the bifolds justice at all! We love them, the light is amazing, thanks again Tim & Team!read more

Based on our recent experiences, we are happy to recommend aluhome. During a visit to their office and display room Tim... was able to give a comprehensive description and assessment of all aspects of the door and windows we were thinking of installing (replacing 25 year old wood framed patio doors and windows). The timing of delivery and installation was as predicted. The cost was more competitive than similar offers. The installation team were on time, friendly, competent and efficient. And they left the patio area as clean as it was beforehand. And we are now very pleased with our new patio door&window. Best wishes, Rick and Moread more

We used AluHome to design and fit steel-look replacement french doors and windows at the back of our house in central... Stamford. Tim and the team at AluHome have been outstanding all the way through the process. They took time to understand our requirements and communication has been exceptional throughout. There were no delays, the doors look wonderful and the installation team were prompt, knowledgeable and paid a high level of attention of detail. There is no need to look elsewhere, we strongly recommend Tim and the more

Great experience from start to finish. Tim was extremely helpful in assisting us with the initial enquiry for French... doors and windows that needed a specific “U” grade for building regs. He invited us to the the showroom and gave us a thorough walk through of the products. The quality of the product is second to none. Aaron - in charge of fitting- worked closely with our builder in terms of planning and measuring as well as giving some on site advice and recommendations.The provision and installation was on time with no issues and very professional.The French Doors now form the focal point of our kitchen extension and have really made the project.We highly recommend Tim and Aluhome!read more

We visited Auhome to help choose doors for our new extension. We met Tim who was very helpful and extremely... knowledgeable and offered useful information to help me decide between sliders or bi folds. The showroom has a good choice of doors which again helped with our decision. I am delighted with the Sunflex sliders we chose, they completely make our room, great quality and fitted expertly by the team. Thank you Tim and all at Aluhome in Stamford. I would thoroughly recommend more

We had decided to replace our old UPVC french doors with aluminium doors and had already researched different brands.... Having decided that Origin was the right product for our house, we approached Aluhome for a quotation. From that point onwards the whole process was quick and efficient. We met Tim at the showroom in Stamford who gave us excellent advice on options for glazing bars, handles etc.etc.We were happy with the price and delivery was much quicker than we had expected with good communication throughout.Fitters Aaron and Terry were a pleasure to deal with where nothing was too much trouble. They were careful and tidy at each stage and had all of the right tools and equipment to do a good job.Any issues during the installation were dealt with professionally and quickly to our satisfaction.Overall a really good experience and well pleased with the more

A warm welcome at the showroom in Stamford which has a range of products on show. We were shown the options available... to us as we were looking to buy bifold doors. We were advised on what would suit us best and the various options available as regards colour, handle options etc. They were fitted very quickly and although we had a couple of issues they were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Tim. Very pleased with our doors and the service from Tim and his fitters. Would more
