Frameless bifolding doors give you wider door panels

As bifolding door experts, we see many properties and meet a lot of different customers looking for the ideal bifolding door.

A new folding door will be marketed as a product that will give you lots of space and light, bring the outside in and give you a great way to open up the back of your home.

Some of the most important features of a bifolding door are flexible design, a professional installation and a door that will look good and work reliably for many years to come. Our frameless bifolding doors do all this and more.

How wide should each folding door panel be?

What can you do if you want bifolding doors with the widest individual door panels? Our doors provide the solution.

One of the most common questions customers ask us is how wide each door panel can be made. These clients have looked at conventionally framed aluminium bifolding doors marketed as being available with wide individual door panels over 1metre wide.

Many aluminium door systems can easily be made in these larger sizes. However, our clients looking for larger bifolding door panel are dissuaded from having them. Their window company or their builder will often tell them that:

– Wider aluminium bifolding doors are prone to dropping
– Large door panels will be too cumbersome to use.
– Large bifolding door panels will project too far into the inside or outside space when folded open.

Clients are often advised to add another door panel and make each door size smaller. This adds another one or two visible mullions and also makes the glass sizes smaller too.

Frameless bifolding doors give wide folding door panels with ease.

Greenbank hotel Falmmouth, Cornwall 18

Our frameless glass doors can easily accommodate door panels of over 1m wide and up to 3metres in height. There is no risk of dropping doors or heavy doors with our frameless glass curtains.

The innovative gearing, sliding mechanisms and advanced materials we use mean we have the ideal door for anyone wanting large glass panels, the biggest possible glass panes and an uninterrupted view.

Moreover, because our doors have no visible mullion, no matter how many door panels you have, from two right up to 8 or more, all you see is glass and a beautiful view.

Better still, our doors are less than half the size of a standard bifold when folded back meaning they will not take up valuable space and make the most of your garden and your room. Four panels when folded back take up only 180mm.

If you are looking for a bifolding door with wide door panels with none of the compromise associated with full aluminium bifolding doors, contact us today.

Excellent service and product from FGC.I have a glass-box conservatory, built with structural glass about 20 years ago. The 2 sliding doors needed replacing, along with 2 side panels, and I contacted dozens of companies selling conservatory doors and none of them were prepared to install their doors because of the perceived risks of working with structural glass.Then I found FGC who, with no fuss at all, carried out a survey, provided a very reasonable quote for the doors/panels and then installed the doors/panels on the agreed date.Communication with the FGC office was always quick and easy. The surveyor and installation team were efficient and courteous. The product works beautifully.We can now use our conservatory again. Thanks FGC.

We purchased a beautiful Origin sliding door and side window from FGC. FGC installed the sliding door and window on time, however the sliding door did not fit correctly. Issues can happen. FGC made the process of re-surveying and re-installation very simple. FGC is a very pleasant and professional company to deal with. We are very happy with their service and would strongly recommend them.

Excellent planning and product advice. All the staff were polite courteous and friendly.On the day of the installation, the team arrived bang on time -we live in Wales so a long drive from Kent! They had the job done by lunchtime (fitting a sliding patio door) and I have to say that on first impression of the unit, it looks and feels like solid quality.

We had a 5m stretch of these wonderful doors installed several years ago and have been very happy with the uninterrupted view of the garden that they allow from the living room. They are admired by every tradesman who sees them. A minor problem we experienced with water ingress last year was promptly and effectively resolved, and the doors were serviced for free at the same time.

May I ask you for a review on how we performed? – all very good except that it took a month to get the correct size of glass doors after the wrong sized ones turned up on initial installation – good job it wasn’t winter or might have been having a different conversation. I appreciate

Mr M K @ Saffron Walden

A heartfelt thank you from us. We knew we wanted something a bit special to set off our extension, which has been absolutely essential in making our new home work for the family. We scoured the internet for something that would allow an uninterupted view of the planned garden but would also allow us to

Mr & Mrs F @ lower road one house Stowmarket

From the time of our first visit to your premises we felt comfortable with your product. It was a product just as we had hoped and envisaged for our new kitchen extension – double glazed, frameless glass doors to cover a 7.310 meter opening ! Until then we were not sure if it was possible.

We had 3 sets of doors installed in April. We had searched far and wide for bifold doors and those supplied by FGC were undoubtedly the most striking. We have had favourable comments from visitors and the doors are functioning well. Our dealings with FGC have been excellent and they have attended since the installation

Mr & Mrs Glasgow – Chalfont St Peter

We are very pleased with our frameless curtains in our dining room and lounge, both of which open out into a conservatory.   Our first contact with you, by telephone, was excellent.  We were invited to look at your glass curtains at your showroom in Chatham which is an hour and a half distant.  Seeing
