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.

Frameless Glass Curtains

I am very happy with the installed doors. The fitters did an excellent job. They arrived on time, were polite and helpful, and went through all of the relevant information with myself and my wife.
They also cleaned the windows at the end of the installation.

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

Work ethic simply cannot be doubted

Can I also thank your fitting team for turning out in atrocious weather that day, their work ethic simply cannot be doubted, please pass on our thanks to them and everyone involved for the service we have received. The doors look fantastic and we hope to add a third set, perhaps later this year.

Wonderful

We have been amazing our friends and family with our FGC since we had it installed a few weeks ago. Every ‘trade’ that is working on site has been fascinated and suitably impressed with the product and engineering. We are over the moon as it has really been the star of our home extension. Thanks

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
