Frameless Bifolding doors in a house made of straw!

Our frameless bifolding doors have been used in a much publicised house made of straw. These unique houses are the brainchild of Brian White.

Brian Waite came up with an innovative way of building houses whilst at the same time keeping costs down. The result is a unique house made of straw.

A Unique house featuring unique bifolding doors.

This affordable strawbale house has recently been featured in Countryside Magazine. Originally publicised in 2012, it’s taken three years for the project to become a reality.

The houses made of straw are being built in Scotland and will be primarily be used as luxury holiday homes.

However, more and more people in Scotland are finding out about this eco friendly, affordable and attractive houses that have natural materials as well as featuring our frameless bifolding doors.

According to the builder, there has also been interest from as far afield as Hawaii!

The property features an eco-friendly specification.  It’s a  13 metre long and 6.5 metre wide two-storey construction from cruck-frame timber.  Curved I beams form the supporting joists with each frame segment filled with insulating straw bales. These are then rendered on the outside, lime plastered on the inside and covered with exterior tiles.

With such an idyllic location, it was important for anyone living in this home to enjoy the stunning views.  This is where Frameless Glass Curtains came in.

The property features our unique and bespoke frameless bifolding doors that offer the most fantastic views from the open plan first floor.

It is on the first floor that the living, dining and kitchen areas are located.  All of these benefit from the uninterrupted views and virtually invisible sight lines that our doors provide.

Transform your home with our frameless bifolding doors.

Contact us today to find out more about our market leading bifolding doors with virtually no aluminium frame.  We are sure they’ll transform your home in the same way as the house made of straw.

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.

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!!

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

Porch Door

Unfailingly Helpful

It is a good time to say to you that while we still very much the windows, the ease of opening, the views closed or open, now that the weather has turned colder we have been struck quick dramatically by the improvement in insulation.  The large windows here that you/we have replaced were double glazed

Hugely impressed by your level of service.

I just wanted to say that I remain hugely impressed by your level of service. The two chaps who came out to service our doors were once again marvellous.  They are very polite and clearly very skilled. It’s very easy these days to complain and sometimes it’s nice to pass on credit where it is

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

Dealing with FGC has been a straightforward and hassle free experience from start to finish.

We would recommend Frameless Glass Curtains

We struggled to find a supplier to fit a glass balcony. Frameless Glass however were great – they gave us a clear and competitive quote, turned up when they said they would, and just got on and did the job! Friendly guys, and we love the end result which looks good from the outside, and

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

I am delighted to have found FGC online! I installed their glass curtain between my office and the kitchen/living room area. It looks fabulous! Easy to use and can be locked.
