Aspire to Luxury Design with New Sliding-Folding Door System

Date: 3 July 2013
ESG Ltd has unveiled its latest innovation with the launch of the new ESG Aspire Sliding-Folding Door System, creating a truly ‘responsive building material’.

A premium sliding-folding door system for interior use, the ESG Aspire offers quality and design excellence by combining switchable technology with a minimalist frameless design.

Harnessing ESG’s switchable glass technology, at the touch of a button, the glass can let light through or ensure complete privacy. The ESG Aspire offers a flexible design feature, which is ideal for dividing living and working space, and can also be combined with coloured interlayers to fit in with interior schemes. 

The frameless design has no visible wiring, no bottom track and the top track can be discretely recessed into a bulkhead, maximising unobstructed viewing. Quickly and easily, the doors concertina and fold back to give the room more space, light and air.


The standard Aspire range is available in two-part or three-part options, up to 2500mm x 2500mm in size, with double-handed options up to five meters across and other bespoke options available on request.

ESG can supply and install the complete system including low voltage track, conductive fittings and accompanying electrical controls. The Aspire system can also be integrated with most home automation and building control systems.

Showcased at Grand Designs Live, the Aspire system is part of the technical glass manufacturer’s range of Controllable Intelligent Glass Systems, which use glass as a truly ‘responsive building material’.

Commenting on the launch of the new ESG Aspire Sliding-Folding Door System, Managing Director of ESG, Scott Sinden, said:

“This new innovation makes ESG the forerunner in controllable glass system solutions. ESG Aspire has an elegant and quality design, ideal for a minimalist look whilst still achieving a flexible use of space.

“The ESG Aspire Sliding-Folding Door System has wowed the crowds at shows such as Grand Designs, and this versatile system has been developed in response to customer needs for more advanced solutions to suit their design requirements.

“Our range of Controllable Intelligent Glass Systems shows how adaptable technical glass can be, and how it is being used for a range of architectural uses. We manufacture of all our glass here in the UK to a very high standard, with our own quality assured supply and fit service.”
