New roller system makes frameless glass curtains doors even more versatile

Kent-based aluminium specialist, Frameless Glass Curtains Ltd, has introduced a new option on its ‘Clearline’ range of thermally broken, glazed sliding/folding doors to make them significantly more versatile. Customers can now choose to have doors with integral rollers which allow even the heaviest installations to open and close at the lightest touch.

The new design has been developed for very large openings where each individual double-glazed curtain (or panel) is up to 1.3 metres wide and 3.0 metres high. For smaller openings and for single-glazed doors for internal use, the existing low-friction, glide-open system – which relies upon a maintenance-free PTFE track and kinetic energy – will remain the standard option.

FGC Managing Director, Gary Beresford explains: ‘This is part of our strongly-held commitment to continuous product improvement. The PTFE track works extremely well but the weight factor does limit the size of the individual curtains and hence the size of the whole door. The new integral rollers will make the “Clearline” range suitable most locations.’

The rollers are fitted to the bottom frame of each curtain but remain out of sight because they, and the frame, sit in a channel which is sunk into the floor. Since the side and top frames are similarly concealed and the doors have no vertical metal mullions, the whole installation appears to be frameless, allowing the clearest possible views to the exterior.

Already proven in projects all over the UK, the real secret of a ‘Clearline’ installation lies in the unobtrusive PVC bubble gasket sited between the individual curtains. When compressed by the door’s easy-to-operate closing mechanism, this gasket becomes all but invisible and creates the illusion of glazing without barriers.

In addition, a combination of toughened 4mm low-iron, light-reflective glass and an inner pane of Pilkington ‘K’ Glass with a ‘U’ value of 1.4 W/m2K, ensures that every ‘Clearline’ installation is safe in use and highly energy-efficient, offering both comfort and lower energy bills.

Moreover, the slimness of each curtain (45mm compared with 90mm in most other systems) means that when stacked to the inside or the outside, they take up minimal room, so allowing optimum use of living/working space.

With both a British and worldwide patent pending, the ‘Clearline’ range from Frameless Glass Curtains has the capacity to enhance almost any type of property.

Frameless Glass Curtains have few competitors so they could take a lacked approach to their work. However, that is not the case. We have had a porch installed in a space that was not square or aligned. The service from survey to finish has been above standard. Barry’s attention to detail and determination that the work would not be complete until his high standards were met was much appreciated. The communication from the admin side was clear and helpful. So all in all we will be using Frameless Glass again and have no hesitation in recommending them.

From the beginning to the end, everyone at FGC have been amazing. I knew straight away that the glazing FGC would provide and install would be spectacular and how right that was! The FGC glazing allows our Edwardian stained glass door to still be a main feature and in fact it shows it off perfectly. We are so happy with the end result and can’t praise FGC highly enough, somehow 5 stars doesn’t seem to be high enough.

Their windows are second to none. No other company in Germany, UK or anywhere else can produce such a fabulous product.Any issues that has come up, they always come & fix it. The staff are so nice and polite. For a small company they do really a great job over all. The main things are the frameless bifolds that you hardly have any frame in the line of vision and there is a 5 years guarantee. Mr & Mrs Jahedi

Delighted with our new frameless glass doors. Had lots of lovely comments, even all the trades who have been working on our house have said they've not seen anything like them. Great having something a little unusual. The quality of the doors is of a very high standard. The service from FGC has been very good too, from ordering through to installation. All went very smoothly with no problems. Paid a bit more than regular bifolds, but worth every penny. Best decision, no regrets at all.

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. They were excellent, and we have no hesitation in recommending FGC and their team to anyone considering such an installation.We are delighted with the installation, and very pleased we chose FGC.Well done FGC!!

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.

Dealing with FGC has been a straightforward and hassle free experience from start to finish. I had several queries long before placing an order and FGC were always prompt and helpful with the responses. Then at site survey time they attended on time, with courtesy calls leading up to the appointment to keep me advised,

STUNNING!

FGC patio doors have replaced Georgian windows overlooking my garden, bringing the outdoors into my upper ground living room all year round. Opening out onto a balcony with steps down to the garden, they’ve transformed the whole flat. Elegant and easy to use, they also let in loads more light and keep out far more

No comparison!

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)?   Initial contact was great!  You may remember that we first visited one of your existing customers in Henley.  I honestly can’t remember the ladies name but she was really helpful, was happy to invite us round the next evening and was clearly delighted

See for yourself this brilliant design

“Visiting the FGC factory before a site viewing was the best decision we made. Very few of the reviewers make any mention of the apparent simplicity that disguises the cleverness and ingenuity in this way of dealing with a large size glazed opening. At the factory the finer details behind the design were explained, and
