What you need to know about our aluminium bifolding doors

The AluK BSF70 bifolding door offers a cost effective, highly reliable and stylish aluminium bifolding door option.  It is the ideal product if you’re looking for an affordable yet high quality bifolding door in powder coated aluminium.

An innovative, bespoke bifolding door.

Our market leading AluK bifolding doors are designed for any type of home.

All our aluminium bifolding doors are bespoke, manufactured to your precise sizes, design and colour.

Even though these doors have a full frame they are very slim compared to other aluminium bifolding doors on the market.  In addition it offers thermal insulation in the aluminium profiles thanks to advanced polyamide thermal breaks that insulate the aluminium profiles all round.

You can choose from a wide variety of opening styles and options.  Doors can stack on the inside or outside of your home, deepening upon your own requirements.  The doors can all slide to the left or to the right.  You can also choose a design that enables your doors to slide and fold in opposite directions.

If you are creating a particularly large extension these doors can even be coupled together to create complete sliding glass walls.

Features of our AluK bifolding door.

Frameless Glass Curtains choose to offer the AluK folding door as it is one of the best selling bifolding doors in the UK today. Designed by one of the country’s best known aluminium system designers it is a great door to complement our frameless range.

Some of the features and specification of this product include:

  • A unique intermediate handle that is recessed into its housing.  You won’t find this type of recessed handle on any other door.   The advantage of this handle is that it is a flush fitting handle and is discreet when the doors are closed. This means that when the doors are folded back and stacked together they stack tighter. This ensures less space is taken up when the doors are fully opened.
  • These doors also offer enhanced security thanks to the glass panels being glazed from the inside – also known as ‘internally beaded’.  This greatly aids door security.
  • Unlike other bifolding doors that only offer one style of frame, opening sash and glass bead, our doors offer you a choice of either square or softline rounded profiles. These can offer you either a flatline contemporary looking door or a more traditional appearance.
  • With any bifolding door you will want the peace of mind that they are reliable.  Our doors offer robust, tried and test and built to last running gear of the highest quality.  This makes our bifolding doors ultra smooth in operation and guaranteed to give you many years of trouble free operation and enjoyment.
  • A choice of threshold options are available giving you either low weathered thresholds, or ultra low thresholds for internal or special applications.
heavy duty door rollers

In addition to our standard bifolding door we also offer a heavy duty version.  These are perfectly suited in the home but we recommend these if you are a developer or contractor that wishes to install bifolding doors in a commercial application such as an office, restaurant, cafe bar or shop.  As these types of premises have a greater flow of people a heavier duty product is required.

With many retail stores now situated inside shopping centres and leisure developments they are used all year round.  For these types of applications our heavier duty door is ideal.  It offers even stronger rollers and running gear that has been extensively cycle tested for ultimate reliability.

Peace of mind door security.

Frameless Glass Curtains have installed a vast number of bifolding doors in many different types of properties. These are typically in the rear of the home.  For peace of mind, our bifolding doors offer sophisticated multi point locking systems, high security cylinders and strong reliable handles.  

Our door comes with a choice of high specification toughened or laminated double glazed units or even triple glazing if required.

Regardless of option, you can benefit from excellent views out of your new bifolding doors, whilst at the same time benefitting from lower heating bills and year round comfort in the home.

Virtually Unlimited colour choices.

Thanks to the benefits of hard wearing, durable yet highly attractive polyester powder coating, you have virtually unlimited colour choices.

You can choose any colour from the hundreds available in the RAL range. Additionally there is a choice of metallic effect shades, popular whites, several shades of grey and even different colours inside and out.

This means we can help you design your ideal bifolding door in any colour to match the inside of your home or your property generally.

The installation was quick and straightforward.Will recommendRH K.RH K. ★★★★★ FGC were brilliant. Great advice on the best windows to get. Extremely good installation. Always ready to solve any installation or manufacturing issues. We are extremely happy with the end result!Joy W.Joy W. ★★★★★ Frameless windows were brilliant, Liam Alfie and James were great, polite, courteous, and left the site clean and tidy. The windows look amazing, Great service from start to finish. Many ThanksRayRay ★★★★★ We love these doors and look forward to having them open a bit more once the patio has ben completed. They really have a "wow" factor and this becomes a double "wow" when people are shown how the corner can be completely opened up. It was about a year from my first enquiry to the doors being installed as there was a considerable amount of building work required to prepare the room. throughout this period I remained in touch with FGC and the service was exceptional. The installation team was on site for a day, starting early and working through to completion before driving back to Kent!! We have been really pleased with the standard of workmanship and even had compliments from other tradesmen working on the room (most of whom had never seen doors like this). These are expensive doors but the price difference from a normal set of bi-folds was well worth it for the uninterrupted view you get. The doors were installed in February but I have held off doing the review until the room was more finished so I could post a more representative picture. Once the patio is done the look will be even better than we originally envisaged. I have attached a few pictures of the room (the white table is only a temporary measure while we wait for the new coffee table).Sharon B.Sharon B. ★★★★★ From first contact to installation, my interactions with FGC have been easy, fast and professional. The end product is superb, we are so happy with our new doors - wish we had done this years ago. Well done FGC!!Jayne N.Jayne N. ★★★★★ This is the second time we have installed FGC and we are very happy with our second installation- very sleek and stylish and all staff very helpful, thanksD JD J ★★★★★ Frameless Glass Curtains have few competitors so they could take a lax 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.Brian S.Brian S. ★★★★★ Brilliant product, what a difference, no frames to block our view of the Brecon Beacons. The service has been the best I think I have ever received and the fitting team were faultless - they travelled 5 hours to get to us in Wales, arriving 30 minutes early, working flat out without a break for 9 hours before driving 5 hours back, all without one complaint!!Catherine U.Catherine U. ★★★★★ Ordered Crittal-style French doors in aluminium. The doors look fantastic and are so much better than the ancient sliding doors I had before. The company were very friendly and easy to deal with. They were understanding of my delays due to a flood. The installers were professional and polite and poor things had to work on the hottest day of the year. Would definitely recommend FGC.Laura G.Laura G. ★★★★★ Really great service from this family run company. We love the doors and the install was top notch. Thanks!Info Oad S.Info Oad S. ★★★★★ Great service and amazing finish! Would highly recommend!paul R.paul R. ★★★★★ Highly competent office and site staff, great product and at a fair price. Couldn't be happier with the entire experience and end result.vanessa C.vanessa C. ★★★★★ 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.ZorèZorè ★★★★★ 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 JahediFiona G.Fiona G. ★★★★★ 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.Andrew H.Andrew H. ★★★★★ Great service and very welcoming for my father and I. Adrian in particular was very efficient, gave great pertinent advice and guidance on my future purchase!Des P.Des P. ★★★★★ Excellent in all aspects from initial viewing in showroom to actual installation.TonyTony ★★★★★ 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.Arun S.Arun S. ★★★★★ Great company with excellent, friendly and responsive service, the guys were helpful and efficient with the installation and the slide and turn doors are a fantastic product.Matt G.Matt G. ★★★★★ Fantastic service from start to finish, from the surveying, contact with office to the workmen. I have experience through work of a number of companies providing similar products and these guys have been by far the best to deal withDavid W H.David W H. ★★★★★ 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!!Border S.Border S. ★★★★★ The quality of the windows / doors are second to none.The customer service was first class from placing the order to installation we were kept informed at every step.The installation team led by Richard left our house and patio cleaner than when they arrivedI would recommend FGC 100%Tony- BurnleyStephen H.Stephen H. ★★★★★ From start to finish everything was excellent.Fab u lasThank youStephen O.Stephen O. ★★★★★ BRILLIANT SERVICE FROM START TO FINISHHighly recommended.Nathan P.Nathan P. ★★★★★ 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.Darius C.Darius C. ★★★★★ I love my doors! It’s transformed my place. The people are great, no nonsense, organised and efficient. I’d recommend them to anyoneAdrian W.Adrian W. ★★★★★ 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.Ian J.Ian J. ★★★★★ 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.Response from the ownerHello Ian, thank you very much for leaving us a review and glad you're happy with your doors and our service.

Thank you for your excellent after sales customer service it is exceptional.

Best wishes to all at FGC for a successful future. Regards

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Extremely polite & very helpful. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) Excellent, on time & schedule. Were we clean and tidy? Yes. And finally are you pleased with our doors (would you Recommend us)? My next design & build project I will definitely recommend & use you guys. May I also ask if you would like to be on our list

I am absolutely thrilled with the finished result. You were straightforward to deal with and visiting your site was appreciated. You gave clear statements regarding specification and developed the product to meet our needs. Installation was at the agreed time and there was reassuring and prompt follow-up as the new design needed refining. The product recommends itself… I’m recommending you… and I would certainly buy again

We would like to say how pleased we are with our fabulous new FGC doors and conservatory.  We thought the transformation would be great, but it’s only once they’re in that we’ve been able to see the full glory of the design – and our view!  We’ve had all the making-good done now, taken off all the plastic film and the result is we have beautiful, draught-proof doors and a lovely, contemporary conservatory. And we’d

Mr R

Thank you again for the doors, we’re very happy with them and, once the renderer has finished (hopefully tomorrow), we’re really looking forward to removing the plastic protection so we can see through them properly. Mr B,

Mr B

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 be a huge improvement on the last installation. Ms Warren, London

We have been extremely happy with our installation. The doors have made a huge difference to the view from our kitchen into the garden. It is a quality product. After 7 years one of our doors developed a fault. I claimed under the guarantee. The matter was dealt with quickly & efficiently. The replacement door was fitted with the minimum of fuss by the team of fitters. Great job. Thank

Clive Lowe
Happy client
Unit has been replaced thank you, once again I find FGC have responded to a problem with a no quibble replacement, it is good to know that there is still companies left who honour their guarantee in the proper manner and send installation teams that carry out their work in a professional manner with competence and courtesy, I would be quite willing to give any prospective customers a reference if that would be of interest

Mr D

Hi Sara Just to day a big thank you for relating the doors the guys did a great job I had to leave them to it as I was in London Regards

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 was carried out on time, very politely. Unfortunately as you know the handle broke and no spare. Reasonably clean. For

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 also put in touch with a relatively local previous customer whom we went to see, to look at the product
