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.

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.

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.

Really Pleased

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)?   Very polite and attentive, always got back quickly with answers to queries but there was no hard sell which I really appreciated after being bombarded by calls and contacts from other companies!  The measuring up part seemed more complicated than it needed to

We are absolutely delighted with the doors, they are so classy and modern. Paul (FGC) was excellent and knew his job. The workmanship is superb. All our friends and family think they are fantastic. Thank you once again. 20150113

Mr A – Leavesden

With regards to feedback, the pre-sales advice and support from Adrian was excellent and we found it really valuable to visit the factory and see the demonstration doors. Furthermore, the installers were very professional, on time, polite, tidy, hard working and went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable operating the doors before

Fantastic company.

Thank you for supply and fitting the beautiful bi folding doors to one of our bespoke projects. Customer service has been second to none. Timescales have all been met as promised. Would definitely use this company again in the future.

A sincere thank you to your installation team

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

How did we advise you on first contact? I was constructing a new extension and FGC were very helpful and understanding of the nature of the project. Updates to the original design (like addition of an extra door) were accomodated easily and efficiently Installation – were the installers polite and did they clean and tidy

A Unique and Stylish System

There is no comparison between the usual bifold door products and the products provided by FGC. We visited FGC to see the manufacturing process and view their unique system. We were hooked, after a simple ordering process and site visit our 2 sets of replacement doors were fitted quickly and in a very professional manner.
