Quickslide unveils Quick-Glide, the flexible slide and stack door system

Quickslide’s Quick-Glide is a revolutionary new slim stack and slide door system that has more glass, less frame and can be slid to open however you want, explains managing director Ben Weber

Quickslide’s newest door offering, aptly named Quick Glide, has been creatively designed to offer homeowners a fully flexible slide and stack door with a multitude of possible configurations. This flexibility is created by multiple independently sliding panels which can be configured to suit any preference or stacked entirely to create a full span, unobstructed opening. What’s more its slim sightlines – more glass, less visible profile – means that when closed, Quick-Glide looks great and lets in maximum light. 

“Quick-Glide is completely flexible,” says Ben. “The panels move individually and are not connected, so there is no limit to the number of configurations you can have. Which means we can give customers exactly what they want in one system. 

“What’s more, it’s slim profile, and with no visible hinges or hardware when closed – other than a simple handle on the main door – makes Quick-Glide as sleek and stylish as it is flexible.”

Marrying Invisifold’s slide and stack system with the Visofold 1000 slim system from Smart Systems, Quick-Glide comes with all the added benefits of slim sightlines, contemporary square sashes, and a new slim-line Quick-Glaze Bead for faster installations. It is the culmination of market testing and researching for the perfect door system that can fulfil everything homeowners are looking for.  

“We first tested the waters for a stack and slide system by showcasing the idea at homebuilding shows across the country,” says Ben. “It was clear straightaway that this had huge potential. We received great feedback and people loved it. But crucially, by listening to what the market told us, we realised one thing was missing: those all-important slim sightlines. 

“So, we put our R&D hats back on, returned to the factory and worked with the guys at Invisifold to come up with the perfect product that would tap into all the latest home improvement trends so that these doors fit the bill when open, closed, and everything in between. 

“The sashes are all operated independently so they can be positioned anywhere across the opening to provide ventilation without having the door fully open, or open up entirely for that complete indoor-outdoor living experience. Then, when closed, the slim profile and hidden hinges gives a great finish, flooding a room with natural light and making it feel spacious and bright.”

And because function is as important as form, Quick-Glide has been designed with ease of installation and maintenance in mind. There are no rollers, as the doors run on self-lubricating pads. In fact, other than the master door hinge, there are no moving parts, which means less to potentially break. And all parts of Quick-Glide other than the master door hinge are made from Nylon 66 GF30 – a 30% glass fibre reinforced and heat stabilised nylon grade that offers increased strength and wear resistance – so they wont rust or degrade over time.

Quickslide’s Quick-Glide is currently going through weather and security testing. “After which we’ll have more news,” says Ben. “So watch this space.”
