The lowdown on Origin’s New Soho Offering

  • 24 Apr 2024

Origin’s Soho External Door is the first launch in its new generation of products, setting a higher standard for the fenestration industry.

Seamlessly combining a sleek steel-look design with unparalleled thermal performance, the new exterior door is a state-of-the-art aluminium bi-fold, French and single door system. It features highly sought-after glazing bars and ultra-slim sightlines of just 36mm.

Tailored Aesthetics

Steel-look design meets unparalleled thermal performance. Every door is made entirely bespoke at Origin’s High Wycombe factory, allowing developers to specify the exact size, configuration, hardware, and colour to suit their project. This flexibility ensures that the doors fit in seamlessly with any residential property style or help create high-spec commercial spaces.


Durable and Expansive

Crafted from high-grade aluminium, known for being strong yet lightweight, the Soho External Door supports large expanses of glass with ultra-slim sightlines of just 36mm. This allows lots of natural light into the property and creates a seamless connection between internal and external spaces. Alongside its ability to create a durable and hard-wearing product, aluminium also creates a stunning silhouette – ideal for modern preferences.

Energy Efficient

Engineered to meet the stringent demands of the UK market, the Soho External Door achieves superior weather ratings and already complies with the 2025 Future Homes Standard. With U-Values as low as 0.8 W/m2K, the new door system ensures optimal energy efficiency without compromising on performance. Superior weathertight seals further guarantee protection against the elements, ensuring rooms maintain comfortable temperatures in all weather conditions.

Safe and Sound

Like all Origin products, security is a top priority. The Soho External Door features Origin’s exclusive 8-point locking system and a 3-Star British Standard Kitemark locking barrel. The barrel is proven effective in safeguarding against snapping, picking, drilling, and bumping, providing an unmatched defence. The door system also meets PAS 24:2022 standards, giving housebuilders and homeowners peace of mind regarding their property’s security.

Built to last, the Soho External Door provides housebuilders and homebuyers with complete confidence in their investments.
