Unveiling a new generation of doors

We’re pleased to unveil Origin’s new Soho External Door, the first launch of our new generation of products.  With new regulations on the horizon and customer expectations clearer than ever, it’s vital that products you’re championing and introducing to the market are an investment in quality, service, and aesthetics. Our latest launch beautifully encapsulates all these elements. 

The Soho External Door is a state-of-the-art bi-fold and French door system designed for the modern era. It not only boasts highly sought-after glazing bars and ultra-slim sightlines of just 36mm, but it’s already 2025 Future Homes compliant – a year earlier than required by the new building regulations. 

Where opulence meets performance  

The Soho External Door represents the pinnacle of fenestration by seamlessly combining cutting-edge design with unparalleled security, attention to detail and thermal performance. Meticulously designed by Origin’s in-house R&D team and handcrafted in the UK to exact specifications, this exterior door sets a new standard for excellence. The new system supports fenestration companies in attracting more clients with its sleek look, giving any property a high-quality, superior feel.

Tailored aesthetics for any property 

With completely bespoke glazing bar configurations, homeowners have the flexibility to create a heritage look with more glazing bars, or an industrial, modern look with fewer bars, making it perfect for all properties. What’s more, the Soho External Door perfectly complements Origin’s hugely popular Internal Door to provide a seamless look throughout the property.

Robust construction 

Origin has long been synonymous with quality, and the launch of its Soho External Door is no different. Made from the highest-grade aluminium, the exterior door effortlessly supports the weight of large expanses of glass, so homeowners can seamlessly bridge the gap between the inside and outside of their homes. Alongside its ability to create a durable and hard-wearing product, aluminium also creates a sleek silhouette that meets modern design preferences.


Uncompromising on security, the new bi-fold and French door system utilises Origin’s secure and unique 8-point locking system alongside a 3-Star British Standard Kitemark locking barrel, making it comply to PAS 24:2022. The barrel is proven to be protected against snapping, picking, drilling, and bumping, offering a defence that is second to none. 

Energy efficiency beyond standards 

Engineered to meet the demands of the UK market, it already meets the 2025 Future Homes Standard by achieving U-Values as low as 0.8 W/m²K. Plus, its use of sophisticated weathertight seals ensures the elements stay out, keeping rooms cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold outside. 

In conclusion 

Origin’s success is founded on continual improvement and the desire to consistently offer the UK’s best quality products, backed up by unrivalled levels of service. This latest launch epitomises this philosophy. 

The Soho aesthetic and performance is the right product at the right time for Origin’s Partners, as it allows them to meet modern consumer style demands and buyer priorities. The design is the result of our in-house R&D team’s meticulous attention to detail to deliver a product that is not only visually stunning, but uncompromising on energy efficiency, security, and overall performance. 

Now, our Partners can offer a 2025 compliant system a year earlier than required, futureproofing their business. With more product launches on the way, 2024 is going to be an exciting year for Origin and our Partners.
