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.

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.

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

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.

Yes we are very pleased with the doors and would recommend them. Initial contact was done by our neighbour at Kingswood so cannot comment, however, the price we were initially quoted was incorrect and significantly lower than it turned out to be. Not sure why. We at Derwent only had a verbal quotation. The installation

We had been looking for ages for the solution to fill two large spaces leading from the house to our new Orangery. From the moment Gary showed us the product at Partridge Farm we knew it was just what we wanted. A year later and we are still delighted. We broke one of the glass

Great post installation service

In addition to the quality of the product – which is stunning, and head an shoulders above anything else on the market – the ongoing support and maintenance is impressive. I had a small issue with the doors recently and their maintenance team came back within 48 hours to resolve everything whilst giving the doors
