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.

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

Replacement doors

I had been looking for some time to replace my patio doors in our lounge as they had very wide plastic frames and wanted something that wouldn’t restrict the view up the garden I asked to see if it was possible to view some already installed close by. Luckily there was, we went and viewed

The most stylish doors!

We first saw FGC at the Grand Designs exhibition in the autumn of last year (2019). We have had frameless glass doors and windows fitted to our house extension and they look fabulous from inside and outside, and make the rooms extremely light. Opening these doors is quick and easy. The service has been attentive

New doors and they have transformed our relationship with the outdoor space

When it has been sunny we have made full use of the new doors and they have transformed our relationship with the outdoor space. The design and colour of the doors has modernised the look of the back of the house especially now we do not have lashings of uPVC everywhere. We were very happy

Mr & Mrs A @ Poole

Delighted with the new doors – they have exceeded our expectations. Customer service from initial contact to installation was excellent. Staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Would recommend.   We would like to be on your list of completed installations as viewing the doors at Weymouth was so helpful in making the decision to order

Brilliant After Installation Service

Our FGC sliding doors were installed in May 2018.
Although we have had two relatively minor problems – neither of which stopped the doors from working – FGC have attended very promptly to carry out remedial action.
Excellent customer service from head office and excellent service from install technicians.

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

Delighted

Delighted with final result and extremely pleased that I decided on these ‘frameless glass doors’ over conventional bifolds. The company had no end of patience with any pre-order questions that I raised and the factory visit and visit to view an existing installation were very informative and reassuring. The team that fitted were professional, attentive
