Origin Launches New Generation Door

  • 21 Feb 2024

The UK’s leading manufacturer of luxury aluminium doors and windows, Origin, has unveiled the first launch in its new generation of products – the Soho External Door (OB-36+).

The aluminium external bi-fold and French door system features highly sought-after glazing bars and ultra-slim sightlines of just 36mm. Plus, it’s 2025 compliant, a year earlier than required by the new building regulations.

The new Soho External Door represents the pinnacle of luxury fenestration by seamlessly combining cutting-edge design with unparalleled performance and quality. Designed by Origin’s in-house R&D team and handcrafted to customers’ exact specifications in the UK, it marks the beginning of a new era for fenestration products.


The Soho style is tailored to homeowners’ interior style demands for 2024, and this is backed by Origin search data. Its glazing bars mimic the look of steel doors, yet offers unparalleled thermal performance.

Tailored to complement clients’ aesthetics, the bi-fold and French door can be specified with more bars to provide a heritage design or fewer to create an industrial or minimalist look.

What’s more, the Soho External Door perfectly complements Origin’s hugely popular Internal Door to provide a seamless look.

Made from high-grade aluminium, the exterior door effortlessly supports the weight of large expanses of glass, so homeowners can seamlessly bridge the gap between the interior and exterior of their homes.

2025 Future Homes Standard

Engineered to meet the demands of the UK market, it already meets the 2025 Future Homes Standard by achieving U-Values as low as 1.0 W/m2K. Plus, its use of sophisticated weathertight seals ensures the elements stay out, keeping rooms cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold outside.

Daniel Baker, Managing Director at Origin, comments: “Origin’s ethos is founded on continual improvement and the desire to consistently offer the UK’s best quality products, and for it to be backed by unrivalled levels of service.

“Our latest launch epitomises this philosophy. The Soho aesthetic and performance is the right product at the right time for our Partners, as it allows them to meet modern consumer style demands and buyer priorities.

“The design is the result of our in-house R&D team’s meticulous attention to detail to deliver a product that is not only visually stunning, but uncompromising on energy efficiency, security, and overall performance.

“We pride ourselves on always delivering more for our Partners. Now, they can offer a 2025 compliant system a year earlier than required to have even more to offer their customers and even greater control over their success.

“With more product launches on the way, 2024 is going to be an exciting year for Origin and our Partners.”
