The Livingwood lift and slide timber doors are among the most versatile on the market. With our standard range we are able to produce a door up to 8.5 metres wide 2.6 metres high. Our non standard range can be over 20 metres wide and 2.7 metres high.

the most versatile wooden lift and slide doors

Unlike traditional sliding doors, our range utilises a lever system. When the opening handle is rotated through 180 degrees the entire door lifts up off its seals and glides along with ease. This allows for both very large and heavy sliding units, as well as an extremely airtight design; when the door stops it drops back down onto its seals creating an airtight bond. Traditional sliding doors rely on brush seals which causes friction resistance and gradual wear. The seals on a lift slide do not wear out.

All doors can be double or triple glazed with the addition of aluminium cladding as per our window range. They are designed to blend seamlessly with the windows and other doors you order from us to create a cohesive design.

There are many different opening options, please contact us to see if the design you want is possible in your opening size.




As with the range of Livingwood windows our lift slide system can accept glass in glazing packages with U values from 1.0 W/m²k down to 0.4 W/m²K. Options of solar control, laminated, anti burglary and obscure glass are also possible.


The standard threshold design is an advanced composite thermally broken system that enables you to have a virtually flush threshold from inside to out.

Now that our order has been completed, I am writing to thank everyone involved for all the efforts made to install the doors in an efficient and, ultimately, timely manner. They are much admired and I’m grateful for your willingness to replace the sills so that the finished product matches the quality of the doors themselves. Thanks again.
