Choosing a Coloured Powder Coated Finish

Grey powder coated aluminium is a great choice of colour for bifolding doors, and indeed is one of the most popular choices.  Not only does grey help create a contemporary looking set of doors, but it also offsets existing white aluminium or PVCu windows quite well.  The other advantage of grey powder coated aluminium doors and windows is that they complement modern decor, flooring, outside paving slabs, decking and tiles.

There are 37 different shades of Grey available in a standard RAL colour chart for aluminium windows and doors. Ranging from virtually white colours with a hint of grey in RAL 7035 and RAL 7047 right up to the very dark greys available in RAL 7016 and RAL 7021 there is a huge amount of choice.

Whilst Grey aluminium is popular, it may not suit every type of home.

At Frameless Glass Curtains, we have installed our sleek, elegant and frameless bifolding doors in a wide variety of properties.  From the ultra modern self build home to the smaller terraced property that needs more light and space our doors are absolutely ideal.  We even have a range of frameless doors that are great for entrance doors and inside the home as room dividers.

The contemporary Grey may not be to everyones liking and may not suit a particular property. With the benefit of over 200 colours available in aluminium that you won’t find with PVCu windows or doors there is no reason why you cannot have the colour you want in your home.  And even if you want a different colour inside and out, we can help.

Brown powder coated doors are great for barns, older properties and countryside properties.

Frameless Glass Curtains recently installed a set of four pane bifolding doors to a wonderful country property in Chesterfield. This particular property featured a lot of dark colours in its construction and outside spaces.  For example there was an existing brown lean to conservatory, timber windows and dark tiles to the roof.  Outside the patio area was a dark terracotta colour with dark varnish to the decking.  Additionally, there were dark fascias to the home and the walls were clad with stone.  In this type of property, whilst grey powder coated doors could be installed a shade of brown seemed the more logical choice.

RAL 8017 was the chosen RAL colour.  This is actually a very popular shade of brown that is widely used in many types of properties.  With 19 possible brown combinations to choose from it was important to select the right shade to blend in with the overall appearance of the property and of course it’s existing doors and windows.

We installed our contemporary glass doors powder coated in RAL 8017 matt and as you can see, whilst these are super slim, frameless and contemporary bifolding and sliding doors you will agree they work brilliantly in this older type of property in the country.

Our four pane doors feature the access leaf which as you can see enables the homeowner to access the garden quickly when needed without having to slide all the doors back.  The addition of our glass handle further adds to the comfort in using the doors and helps retain the minimalist appearance.

These doors feature our exclusive high specification double glazed units, sophisticated design to keep the weather out and the inside of the home comfortable thanks to clever engineering, exceptional manufacturing and high quality components.  Of course, peace of mind comes from the high security offered by our multi point locking systems.

Let us help you find your ideal doors, whatever your property.

We install our innovative and high quality frameless glass sliding, folding or swing doors all over the UK in all types of homes, flats and apartments as well as in commercial properties, offices and hotels.  If you would like to find out more about how our doors can benefit your home, please contact us.

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

Looks fantastic!

I am really impressed with the finished product and service e provided by FGC.
I had an image in my mind of how I wanted the end result to look. The “invisible” glassing was the most difficult and important part to source.
FGC came through with flying colours, right from the initial contact,

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

Installation of four double-glazed doors, internal to a large bay window arrangement, top floor flat. Initial contact was by email and a quote came back within a couple of days. More than can be said for some of the other companies we contacted about similar products. We visited the factory for a demonstration and were

Excellent Service

The guys phoned, as promised, to let me know their ETA. Arrived punctually and did a great job. It’s apparent they know the system inside out and we’re very thorough. All after sales follow up has always been efficient. Chatty and polite guys. Thanks FGC.

Stunning Glass Doors

FGC are an excellent family run business. They manufactured and fitted a stunning pair of glass doors for a private client which were complicated in design but FGC were keen and willing to help resolve all details successfully. Would highly recommend. Thank you.

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

Punctual, Friendly & Efficient

Many thanks for your prompt attention to our problem. As before, your fitters were punctual, friendly and efficient. A credit to your company.

Mr C, Surrey  

Mr A B

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

Brilliant Service

The service that we have received from FGC is exceptional – rapid response, punctual, clean & tidy work!

Balcony Glass Curtain

From the moment I contacted FGC their help and attention to detail was exemplary. I had particular requirements which meant that each of the glass doors where different sizes. FGC decided to install in two visits rather than one at no extra cost to ensure that they achieved what I wanted We are extremely pleased
