You are probably wondering what the top 10 best sliding door brands are in Australia. Well today, we are going to go through our top 10 in the perspective of a company who specialises in fixing sliding doors.
We have no commercial interest in any of the best sliding door brands but instead, find it interesting how often we repair each type of door.
The best sliding door brands have a few things in common, which include:
- Excellent manufacturing
- Quality materials used in all their sliding doors
- Simple, yet eye-catching designs
- Rollers built into the door which is sturdy and can last
- High-quality door locking mechanism
Of course, there are other elements of a sliding door which are key but they are the main ones.
Will the best sliding door brands guarantee your door will slide perfectly forever?
The simple answer is no.
If they did, our company would be out of a job.
But just like a car, constant wear and tear means parts become worn out, brittle and needs maintenance, repair and more often than not, replacing.
The truth is, every door in your home is likely to be used frequently.
If you have kids, then multiply that by a factor of 10. When kids come over, opening and closing the doors to get outside, back inside, then outside and on and on continue all summer.
So let’s take a look at the top 10 sliding door brands below.
Best Sliding Door Brands in Australia

1. Bradnams sliding doors
Bradnams doors are focused on practicality and style and are one of the most common door brands in Australia. In particular, we are based in Sydney and see a lot of these doors.
Their signature doors have easy, clean features, superior security and an easy smooth sliding action.
2. Dorma sliding doors
Dorma recently merged with Kaba doors to create a larger more focused door brand in Australia. Their name is now Dormakaba.

4. Wunderlich Sliding doors
We can definitely tell you that Wunderlich doors are everywhere. But you don’t hear about them anymore as they are no longer built in Australia.
Most aluminium sliding doors are Wunderlich doors and back in the day, they were kept simple in design and materials used.
These doors definitely have components that fail over time and need replacing.
What you will love about the Wideline sliding doors is how quiet they are to operate.
Their manufacture means they are able to withstand the high-temperature changes which occur in the Australian conditions, moving from hot summers to cool winters.
They use quality components and have double glazed options available plus Timber sliding doors too.
Comalco sliding doors are an older type which are no longer manufactured in Australia. They are much less common than the doors mentioned above but we do see a few of them around Sydney.
7. Trend Doors
The Trend doors are modern and well built. They have two main residential doors including their Synergy standard series and their Quantum premium series.
They are also big in the Commercial sliding door and door closer space.
Trend prides themselves on their style and performance and we think they do a good job as well.
8. Hume Doors
Hume Doors and Timber products are one of the most well-known brands in Australia. They do a lot of Timber doors and internal wooden doors.
But you will also see they have a range of beautiful timber cavity sliding doors. These are both stylish and impressive with their soft closing mechanism and one-touch push to release.
9. Airlite Doors
Airlite is known for putting out a lot of aluminium sliding doors which are weather resistance and ideal for patio doors or verandah doors.
They have an adjustable nylon roller system for an easy glide to ensure your doors slides smoothly for years to come.
But as mentioned above, no matter how good their components, your door gets a lot of use and wear and tear.

Clearview has a wide range of sliding doors plus windows and glass products. Their sliding doors come in a number of different configurations, sizes and styles to suit your needs.
