Fusion Glazing - Sliding Door systems
PanoramAH! ah!38 Minimal Sliding Door System
In 2010, Fusion Glazing Systems started to supply and install in close partnership with PanoramAH! the first minimal ‘frameless’ glass sliding door system into the United Kingdom. It was then, and continues to be now, a ground breaking design that was eagerly welcomed by early adopting and forward thinking design studios and architect practises.
We have learned from, and built on our experience, installing project after project, door set after door set over the years. Fusion has been involved in a wealth of stunning residential projects over the years across London and the South East of England. Some have turned out to be award winning projects.
Clients simply fall in love with this truly beautiful, easy to operate and high-performance minimal sliding door system. We are privileged and thrilled to have worked on high profile projects such as at the Water Tower in Kennington featured in the 100th episode of Grand Designs. But we are very proud of our smaller projects, the more humble single door set extensions showcasing our minimal door systems.
The PanoramAH! ah!38 Minimal sliding door system, has got very slim 20mm mullions between each panel of glass. Not only do you have very slim sight lines between glass, but also only 7mm of frame showing above your flush floor, in the winter months when the doors are closed. Also, only 7mm of frame showing at the top between plaster and glass, if you hide the top frame within your ceiling plaster. So, the outer frame can be hidden completely without effecting the performance of the doors.
Ah!38 offers high security multipoint locks with a key cylinder. Ticking every box in terms of security requirements of UK insurance companies. The locking mechanism is encased in a full height, floor to ceiling, contemporary handle profile powder coated the same colour as the frame.
This system is unique because the glass panels, which can be very large (Up to 8m tall have been achieved!) glides on a bed of very specialised stainless-steel bearings on the bottom track. It offers extremely easy and smooth operation. The glass simply glides over the bearings, as famously displayed by Kevin McCloud on Grand Designs, pushing a tonne of glass with one finger. No other system in the market can achieve the sizes PanoramAH! can on a single glass sliding panel.
Ah!38 offers single panels in a mono rail track with glazing beads, double track, triple track, 4-track – all slide if required. The span can be endless. We can do pocket doors, opening corners, glass to glass corners to name a few options.

PanoramAH! vertical sash sliders/ guillotine windows. We have done sets 6m tall! See photos of Northumberland Place

With what is becoming a crowded market place, with more aluminium ‘frameless’ sliding door systems popping up everywhere, home owners find it increasingly difficult to know how to choose the right slim sliding door system.
Since 2010 we have been supplying and installing the award winning, super slim PanoramAH! ah!38 Minimal aluminium sliding door system. But we have realized that there is a strong demand for a very good, more cost effective, slim sliding door system. So, in 2014 we developed our own brand-new slim frame aluminium sliding door system, to compete on price and quality with the best minimal sliding door brands on the market.
Fusion Vista 19 Minimal Sliding Door System
Our latest offering in the slim sliding door market, is the slimmest high-performance system in the UK. It offers very slim mullion sizes, otherwise known as sight lines, of 19mm between each panel of glass. Not only slim between glass panels, but the visible metal above flush floor is also truly minimal. So is the metal at the top if you have a flush ceiling.

This gives a virtually frameless sliding door solution. It is really a beautiful solution, easy to slide, with high performance certification.
