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.

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.

Frameless Glass are one of the most impressive companies I have ever come across

This company have a product which to my mind is “second to none”. Their glass doors really let you feel you are outside as they have the tiniest of joins…I used to know the exact cm measurement! I was initially worried though about what would happen on follow up problems as their main office is

Regarding your service I would like to make the following comments Web site, initial contact and service My wife saw a product similar to FGC Glass Curtains whilst on holiday. After undertaking a lot of searching on the internet we came across FGC. FGC offered a product we could not find anywhere else, i.e. a

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
