Product Details

The Dutemänn Glide-S enhances your home with style whilst delivering on all the advantages you get with a sliding door – larger glass panels, more light, better views and a more spacious feel in your room.  Choose from two, three or four panels, or a corner door option.

  • Contemporary styling all round
  • Slim 38mm mullion sightline
  • Architectural quality designer door handles
  • Sizes up to 6m in two panels
  • Three threshold options
  • Panel sizes up to 3.3m wide or 3.3m high


The Dutemänn Glide-S comes in a choice of sightline, colour and glass options.  For the middle mullion, there’s an option of a slim 50mm standard sightline or even a slimmer 38mm option.  Even better, with the impressive size capability of up to 6m wide, this means you lose only these minimal mullion dimensions in the middle on a two panel door, creating a spectacular glass sliding wall.

Our doors come as standard with toughened safety glass for your glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill. Or you can upgrade your doors to enhanced security laminated glass, solar control or even acoustic for an even quieter environment inside.  Our doors come in a range of standard colours, or there’s the entire RAL colour range to choose from. Dutemänn Glide-S are available to view by appointment only at our manufacturer facility in Dartford.

Security & Performance

As you’d expect from a latest-generation modern sliding door, Dutemänn Glide-S comes engineered for the best security, energy efficiency and thermal performance.

Your new doors are independently tested to the latest security standards, featuring multi-point locking, high security key cylinders and reliable door handles.  These work in harmony with the built-in design and security features designed to keep your home and possessions safe.  The overall engineering and smart design also creates a door that’s incredibly well-sealed, keeping your home dry in wet and windy weather.

And, for your peace of mind, Dutemänn Glide-S comfortably meets the requirements of current Building Regulations.

Product Features


As standard your new doors come with high-end hardware designed to deliver a smooth sliding action. Superior door rollers work with the advanced lift and slide mechanism for effortless operation every time. High-end door locking systems featuring multiple locking points engage into secure door keeps.
The sophisticated lift and slide handle is multi-functional. Rotate the handle to raise the sliding panel and slide it to your designed position. You can also set the door back down in the open position giving you peace of mind that it can't be operated from the outside - ideal for partial opening and ventilation.
