Frameless Glass Doors – For a Better Workspace

Open plan offices with large windows work. Rather than blocked off rooms, installing frameless glass doors to partition off areas ensures that natural light bounces and reflects through the entire office creating an airy, light and energised space. What’s more, frameless glass doors look contemporary and stylish telling clients that you are a forward thinking company creating a positive vibe and attitude.

Research has shown that buildings can make workers sick. And for a company with a sick or downbeat workforce, the future looks bleak. Sick workers impact on your profit margins with more absenteeism, lower energy and increased negativity. Investing in improving the movement of natural light could be an effective solution. According to recent studies from the Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture in America, there are several building factors that will affect our health, including:

  • Mould – if an office is mouldy and damp, breathing in the spores has been directly linked to asthma and allergies as well as long term respiratory problems.
  • Fresh air – Fresh air improves your respiratory health helping your brain and body stay alert and awake.
  • Nature – Numerous studies have shown how nature can impact on our emotional well being and stress levels. If your office is in the city but you’re lucky enough to have a roof or balcony, frameless glass doors looking out onto spaces packed with pot plants is something all architects and designers should aspire to.
  • Daylight – In a press report, Professor Vivian Loftness from the Carnegie Mellon School said: “One of my life’s goals is to make windowless and basement offices illegal. Some hospital studies are showing very clearly that patients with south eastern views (getting direct morning sun) have shorter stays than patients facing in other directions.” She added that she would like to see natural light in office buildings be mandatory.

Office buildings are places many of us spent considerable time. And the buildings can have a huge impact on our physical as well as mental health. A report in the LA Times revealed that employees have sued workplaces for triggering Seasonal Affective Disorder; one teacher sued her school for refusing to move her from a windowless basement room.

Excellent service and product from FGC.I have a glass-box conservatory, built with structural glass about 20 years ago. The 2 sliding doors needed replacing, along with 2 side panels, and I contacted dozens of companies selling conservatory doors and none of them were prepared to install their doors because of the perceived risks of working with structural glass.Then I found FGC who, with no fuss at all, carried out a survey, provided a very reasonable quote for the doors/panels and then installed the doors/panels on the agreed date.Communication with the FGC office was always quick and easy. The surveyor and installation team were efficient and courteous. The product works beautifully.We can now use our conservatory again. Thanks FGC.

FGC installed a two-panel frameless glass door at our property yesterday. Wow!! the installation is exactly as discussed, and was carried out by two of FGC's team members who were so professional and courteous.

We purchased a beautiful Origin sliding door and side window from FGC. FGC installed the sliding door and window on time, however the sliding door did not fit correctly. Issues can happen. FGC made the process of re-surveying and re-installation very simple. FGC is a very pleasant and professional company to deal with. We are very happy with their service and would strongly recommend them.

Excellent planning and product advice. All the staff were polite courteous and friendly.On the day of the installation, the team arrived bang on time -we live in Wales so a long drive from Kent! They had the job done by lunchtime (fitting a sliding patio door) and I have to say that on first impression of the unit, it looks and feels like solid quality.

We had a 5m stretch of these wonderful doors installed several years ago and have been very happy with the uninterrupted view of the garden that they allow from the living room. They are admired by every tradesman who sees them. A minor problem we experienced with water ingress last year was promptly and effectively resolved, and the doors were serviced for free at the same time.

What our customers say

Mr BG

Basically the installation itself was done pretty quickly and efficiently – three guys turned up early in the morning and were done by lunchtime. Polite, tidy. 20150112

Wonderful product and great service

Following the installation of our new FGC porch, I wanted to give a recommendation for the excellent and diligent service, and wonderful product we received from FGC. Numerous people have commented since we had the work done, and it has clearly added value – both visually and financially – to our property. Also, when the

We are very pleased with the glass curtains, which do what we want them to – separate the house and conservatory, meeting building regs, but as unobtrusively as possible. We were very happy with the service we received and the efficiency of those who fitted the curtains and we would have no hesitation in recommending

Perfect product

These frameless glass walls have made a huge difference to our comfort at home. They are installed between our living rooms and conservatory. When open, they allow heat into the living area on a sunny day (reducing our heating bill) and when shut, they keep the cold and noise out. They are also much better

First class

We moved last year and wanted to maximise the view right through from the rear to the front of the building, overlooking the river. After much searching we found FGC, who installed internal glass doors between the rooms. FGC were very efficient and although we are in the North they sorted out a subsequent small

We are absolutely delighted with the doors, they are so classy and modern. Paul (FGC) was excellent and knew his job. The workmanship is superb. All our friends and family think they are fantastic. Thank you once again. 20150113

Work ethic simply cannot be doubted

Can I also thank your fitting team for turning out in atrocious weather that day, their work ethic simply cannot be doubted, please pass on our thanks to them and everyone involved for the service we have received. The doors look fantastic and we hope to add a third set, perhaps later this year.

Fantastic aftercare service!

I had an installation of 4 doors in December 2018. During the cold snap in January this year the outside glass handle cracked. I contacted Sara in customer support and the handle was replaced free of charge by Liam and Alf who did the job quickly and professionally. They also checked that all the doors

On the day of installation your fitters arrived on time and commenced with the installation. They were courteous and polite and left the work area clean and tidy. I would be happy for you to use the installation as a promotional example of your work. 20150218

A sincere thank you to your installation team

We would like to say how pleased we are with our fabulous new FGC doors and conservatory.  We thought the transformation would be great, but it’s only once they’re in that we’ve been able to see the full glory of the design – and our view!  We’ve had all the making-good done now, taken off

Really Pleased

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)?   Very polite and attentive, always got back quickly with answers to queries but there was no hard sell which I really appreciated after being bombarded by calls and contacts from other companies!  The measuring up part seemed more complicated than it needed to
