Imago redefines timber sliding doors

Perfect for the UK climate, Imago Lift & Slide is the definitive timber wide-span door for design led homes.
The super-slim wooden frame makes it an exciting choice for extensions, sunrooms and orangeries where style and performance is paramount.
Imago is the stunning timber lift and slide door system from AGB, Italy’s largest window and door hardware manufacturer. Widely specified, Imago is a leading wooden sliding door in mainland Europe. In Italy there are 130 companies installing Imago Lift & Slide Doors and 600 architects subscribing to its online design and specification service.

Imago frames the view with a sightline down to just 2cm. Unlike most wooden doors, Imago has a sash slimmer than even some aluminium lift and slide doors. The hardware disappears into the frame and the silky smooth slide mechanism is invisible. The Imago Lift & Slide Door is so innovative it has been selected as one of the best industrial designs by the ADI Index 2014, alongside an impressive line-up of new offerings from luxury brands renowned for beauty and performance including Ferrari, Maserati and Ducati.

The result is a huge glazed window door that offers an uninterrupted view. The combination of elegant style and industry leading thermal and weather performance has redefined what is possible from a timber door. Our British weather means large doors stay firmly shut for most of the year. Open or closed, Imago’s slim design means there aren’t multiple frames to break up the view, creating a light filled space.

Installation companies and timber manufacturers who target the premium market will find Imago Lift & Slide Doors a big attraction for homeowners and designers. AGB has everything architects need with easy to download drawings and specifications to add straight into their design project. Manufacturers are given all the high performance test certification needed to produce fully CE compliant doors. Companies can find out more about Imago Lift & Slide Doors by emailing imago@agb.it.
