The benefits of slide and turn folding doors

At frameless glass curtains our doors are designed to give you greater flexibility in how they open and fold. We’ve engineered our doors to give you all the benefits of a folding door but with far more flexibility.

A folding door with more opening options.

Frameless doors with ventilation when open.
Our frameless slide and turn doors open independently rather than being all hinged together. Less space is needed.

A conventional bifolding door is a series of connected leaves that move together when opened. Study a full framed aluminium bifolding door and you’ll see all the leaves held together by their door hinges. When the doors are folded open, pushing one panel enables all the door panels together to fold and then slide.

Our frameless glass folding doors offer a slide and turn opening function giving you more flexibility. Unlike a typical aluminium folding door you get more features and control.

How do slide and turn doors work?

The first great feature of our doors is independent sliding of each door panel. This gives greater ventilation options for your doors without having to fold all the leaves back.

Even if you choose to partially open your bifolding doors, ours take up less space because they don’t need to fold to provide ventilation.

On a conventional door a partial opening means the leaves fold either in or out and take up space. With our doors all you need to do is open one leaf only and then slide each panel along the track as much or as little as you like. You can then choose to have doors that offer a little ventilation or a lot.

Flexible opening options with a slide and turn folding door.

You can open just one leaf and slide the rest as much or as little as you like for controllable ventilation.

When you need to open your bifolding doors you benefit from more options again. Our doors are designed to slide along their tracks rather than slide and fold at the same time. Once they reach their end point, the hardware engages enabling you to turn the leaf inwards or outwards to the fully open position. You repeat this procedure with each panel that slides and folds until all doors are folded open giving you an open bifolding door.

Our doors are made from thermally efficient and ultra slim aluminium. When you fully open your doors you’ll benefit from stacked folding doors that take up substantially less space when open than any conventional aluminium bifolding door. So you can benefit from all the advantages a bifolding door brings whilst saving on bulk when the doors are open thanks to their slide and turn ability.

We believe our frameless slide and turn doors offer you more features, more flexible ventilation and space saving qualities. Contact us to arrange a viewing or a demonstration of our doors. You can visit our factory and showroom or arrange to view one of our installations by appointment.

Mr M B @ Praa Sands, Cornwall

We wanted to connect two room – a ‘sun room’ and living room -by replacing a large window with some glass doors. We contacted local suppliers and Googled ‘glass partitions’. Local suppliers weren’t much help, however the Google came up with just what we wanted – frameless glass doors. We contacted Gary for a price.

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Staff were polite and prompt in answering telephone questions. There were technical problems with our installation and staff were open and discussed options and were polite. The fitters were surprised at the distance they had to travel to reach us each time, although we

Minor Problem Addressed

A strip of the furry trim at the top of the frame that the doors run on had come loose. On the one hand the sort of thing that one could have a go at fixing; on the other hand having witnessed the care and attention the FGC installation team do their work; I thought
