How ASSA ABLOY could give you more secure glass sliding doors


If you have sliding doors around your premises, there’s a good chance you’ll want to secure them. Whilst you might love them for their appearance and their ability to make any space feel bright and open, they could leave you open to risk.

Whether they’re found in reception or in a showroom, any sliding door system should be properly reinforced to prevent the likelihood of intrusion and theft.

Sliding doors present a risk because they often show what’s inside to be stolen. This can act as an advertisement to criminals looking for an easy target. What’s more is that glass sliding doors sometimes have locks that are easy to pick. As a result, sliding door security should be a priority for any business that utilises them. We have the solutions to help ensure that your sliding doors are secured and prevent any unwanted entry.

At ASSA ABLOY, we encourage our customers to acknowledge the weak areas in their places of work and homes so that they can be properly addressed. In doing so, each and every property owner can assess their options and limit their risks. When you consider that these kinds of doors can be compromised by burglars bypassing locks, lifting the door from its frame and even breaking the glass, you’ll see that you could need several defence mechanisms.

Henderson is one of the brands that we offer. With almost 100 years of experience in creating the highest quality of folding and sliding door hardware, we can successfully secure your premises. There are several of our products that allow you to do just that.

Flexirol Sliding Glass

For those that operate offices, hotels, shops, showrooms and conference centres, this is a high-performance product that maintains an attractive aesthetic. As a unique system that tends to favour larger doors, it is provided with a glass clamp profile that suits toughened glass for added security. Why should you choose this? By choosing a stronger sliding door to begin with, you’ll be less likely to experience forced entry. Yes, they might be a more expensive outlay from the start but they’ll be worth the investment.

The same can be said for quality sliding gear products. When choosing a few to suit your needs, it pays to trust respected brands like Henderson that deliver on durability and functionality. Our solutions are diverse and offer something for every type of sliding door including the likes of aluminium sliding doors.

Sliding Door Locks

We offer a range of sliding door locks that ensure your home or office are always securely protected. Sliding door locks are offered in both lever and cylinder variants, so the principle of outside doors needing a 4/5-Lever or cylinder lock and internal doors requiring a 2/3 lever lock applies. When it comes to glass sliding doors, we also offer a range of locks suitable for this application.

When last did you assess your building’s access points?

Whether it’s a sliding door or any other door, your entryways pose a level of risk to your organisation and your staff. By properly securing them, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your business isn’t at a high risk of forced entry.
