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.

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

Great aftercare

We had our doors fitted in 2015 and have been very pleased with them. As with most things there are times when an adjustment is required to the doors or in our case a door needing to be replaced as it had developed a problem with condensation. The company has been very good at resolving

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.

Very Pleased with the Freedom the Installation affords

We are very pleased with the freedom the installation affords us with easy access from lounge to dining room. Aesthetically the glass curtain installation is very pleasing. All appears well but we must point out the bottom bar is not firmly fixed in the channel in the floor & moves if one stands upon it.

Chartered Building Surveyor I was impressed with the installers

I would like to reiterate that we are very pleased with our new FGC doors. As a Chartered Building Surveyor I was impressed with the installers who were careful, methodical and very professional my wife who is most particular was also very impressed with their cleanliness. I am sure we will get many years of
