Different uses for Glass Bifolding Doors

Many homeowners are choosing bifolding doors for their home improvement projects did you also know that bifolding doors actually have several uses in other buildings as well?

But what other uses for glass bifolding doors are there?

We already know that folding doors are excellent for connecting the inside of your property to your garden.

Bifolding doors for Flats and Apartments

With many modern apartments now featuring balconies, bifolding doors are ideal here. Compared to French doors, bifolds actually take up less space.

Even if you have a two pane bifolding door, the folding nature of this product ensures you are not left with leaves that have to stay open in a virtual 90 degree position like french doors.

Bifolding doors can also be made larger than typical french doors used in flats. This means there is no need for sidelights or stoplights often found with these products. The concertina effect of how bifolding doors open can help make the most of limited space.

Bifolding doors as room dividers

Did you know that slim doors with minimal framing are ideal as a glass room divider?

Studios are an excellent example of small spaces where glass doors can provide solutions. Studios can be separated with a bifolding door providing that much needed separate room but without losing out on light and space as you would with a dividing wall or partition.

Bifolding doors in Restaurants and Bars.

With town centres undergoing significant transformation in recent years you will not have failed to notice the increase in coffee shops, bars or restaurants with dedicated outside space.

Bifolding doors are now used more and more in commercial units and shops. For any business that serves food or drink, bifolding doors make the premises inviting and attractive with the al fresco feel.

During the winter months, glazed doors still provide an open appearance but it it in the summer that they really come into their own opening up an entire frontage and making any food or drink business appear busy, welcoming and inviting.

Bifolding doors can give you an extra room.

Our frameless glass doors are excellent if you have large rooms or an open space that you wish to divide. Perhaps you are looking to create a work space, a playroom for the children or any other kind of room.

Seek the right advice from a bifolding door professional and you can create that extra room whilst still enjoying maximum light and making the most of your available space.

Bifolding doors in Offices.

in this architects practice, our all glass doors help create privacy whilst retaining an open plan feel.

Open plan working is very much the way modern businesses lay out their offices. However for meeting rooms, interview rooms or any other kind of private environment needed in the workspace, glass doors are ideal.

Our all glass doors are a better alternative to fixed glass office partitions or solid doors and can provide a wow factor to your office building impressing your customers and suppliers alike.

Let Frameless Glass Curtains provide the solution for you.

Our unique range of sliding and folding doors are tried and tested and successfully used in many domestic and commercial environments. Even global brands such as Manchester United have benefitted from the maximum light and space provided by our doors.

If you are currently considering aluminium, pvcu, or timber bifolding doors, contact us to find out how our doors have features other products cannot provide and above all give you the very maximum in natural light, space and value to your home or office.

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.

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

Highly recommended

From the first moment of making contact we were given a very personal and friendly service. The survey, fitting and installation were all carried out by helpful and pleasant people. Follow up service was equally good. I am extremely pleased with the results.

Delighted

Delighted with final result and extremely pleased that I decided on these ‘frameless glass doors’ over conventional bifolds. The company had no end of patience with any pre-order questions that I raised and the factory visit and visit to view an existing installation were very informative and reassuring. The team that fitted were professional, attentive

I am very happy with the doors

I am very happy with the doors – I saw them last night after work – though I didn’t open them as I wanted to make sure I followed the installers’ instructions not to. They look wonderful and my boyfriend and mum tell me they were absolutely lovely chaps. The finish seems brilliant and appears to

A great installation

“Thank you again for a great installation, we are really enjoying the extra light.” I will be sending a load more images your way at some point today.

Great aftercare

We had our doors fitted in 2015 and have been very pleased with them. As with most things there are times when an adjustment is required to the doors or in our case a door needing to be replaced as it had developed a problem with condensation. The company has been very good at resolving

We were so pleased with the doors we ordered another set for the dining room and were not let down – the service we received was consistently good from staff both in and out

A FIRST CLASS JOB FROM A FIRST CLASS COMPANY

From contacting FGC for a quote to having them installed was seamless.
We were kept informed every step of the way and installation was earlier than quoted when we paid our deposit. On the day Mick and his team installed the doors talking us through each step and left our house and patio cleaner
