Three great reasons for choosing frameless bifolding doors

At FGC, we have provided our innovative and secure frameless doors, bifolding doors and glass entrance doors to a diverse range of properties all over the UK.  We enjoy helping customers understand the benefits of choosing frameless bifolding doors.

Our frameless glass doors are fitted to and provide benefit to houses and apartments. Properties ranging from terraced homes, semi-detached and detached suburban houses, country properties, new build homes and even cruise liners have benefitted from having frameless bifolding doors.

What benefits do frameless bifolding doors provide?

As a customer focused and service-driven company, we encourage all our customers to leave feedback on their experience with our products and our overall service. You can read all our testimonials on our website.

Our customers also give us a valuable point of view about what their new frameless bifolding doors mean to them and their homes. We have taken the top comments left on our website about our glass doors along with a brief explanation.

Frameless glass doors. An impressive and individual product.

Thank you for a brilliant product I am so glad I chose FGC for my windows/doors everybody who sees them is so impressed by them.

The main reason why people continue to be impressed by frameless bifolding doors is that until they are discovered, many people do not even know they exist.

The assumption is that for a door to cover a full span and an impressive height, it has to be made from aluminium, PVCu or timber for strength and support. Upon discovering our frameless doors, they learn how a folding door can be made wider and taller than many other types of bifolds. Better still, there are no visible mullions commonly associated with doors that join when closed.

Our frameless glass doors are entirely different from even other doors marketed as frameless. Here is why:

FGC doors are suitable for residential settings.

Many other ‘frameless’ doors are intended for commercial use with limited weathering and security, and others are only possible single glazed. FGC doors meet all the latest weather performance standards, security accreditations and come with a five-year guarantee.

FGC doors are truly frameless.

Where many doors rely on capping pieces, plastic trims or aluminium at the junction where the doors meet, ours rely on a patented glass edged double glazed unit and slimline gaskets. There is no compromise on weather performance. Our doors are engineered to be frameless. Others used caps and covers to hide unsightly glass edges and inferior design.

Frameless Glass doors for your own Grand Design.

The outside has truly come inside and we use the decking on a daily basis. FGC doors have transformed the house adding significant value to the property. When we see programmes such as Grand Designs where they suggest bi-fold doors we end up shouting at the TV saying use Frameless Glass Curtains instead.

Programmes such as Channel 4’s Grand Designs illustrate the love affair we have with our homes. Some people take on simple projects in city centres, making the most out of a limited plot of land. Others embark on building a unique dwelling with sophisticated design, an ecological home or a very substantial build in size.

Our frameless glass doors are ideal for all these projects. For the smaller terraced property, we have added to the feeling of space and light by providing frameless doors to maximise on available light, thanks to their super slim sight lines. The stacked doors take up 50% less space than other doors. We have also fitted them as inward opening doors to upstairs bedrooms by creating a Juliet balcony.

We have even provided our doors to the finest houses built to be as ecological and environmentally friendly as possible. Our doors have even been fitted to the most lavish homes where architects have worked with our doors on some of the most ambitious designs. Even cruise liners have our doors in the public areas to provide stunning ocean views.

An ethical and professional approach to our customers.

Very polite and attentive, always got back quickly with answers to queries but there was no hard sell which I appreciated after being bombarded by calls and contacts from other companies!

As a family business, we pride ourselves or treating our customers how we would wish to be treated. From your first contact with our Company, you are dealing with senior members of staff that are trained to help you by answering your questions, providing advice and knowing all about doors – not just our own.

From your initial enquiry right through to the finished installation, our customers tell us they are delighted. Many of them are delighted to allow future customers into their homes to see their doors. Our clients often do the selling for us.

We also offer a full range of aluminium windows, bifolding and sliding doors,
and front doors as FGC Bespoke Aluminium.

Our small job was handled extremely professionally from start to finish and we are very pleased with the results.
Very happy with the service I have received, everything went smoothly no issues, I was kept up to date throughout the process and the fitting team were very professional, polite and friendly I would recommend fgc to anyone thank you
Amazing service, great aftercare, incredible product. It was hard to find something that would fit in our house and would have been pleasing to the eye aswell as stylish and modern and unique.From sales to install was smooth and stress free amazing bunch of people to work with I had a great experience
Great product with diligent, professional staff from start to finish. Highly recommended.
Firstly I have to say a huge thank you to Paul the owner of FGC for being willing to take on the job of sorting out the extremely shoddy and poor installation of the Origin doors and windows fitted on my new build home, when it was built. And replacing the damaged gaskets. I had your guys with me for two days this week. What a breath of fresh air comparted to the people of originally installed my doors and windows. Extremely professional and lovely chaps. They worked tirelessly to sort out the many issues we had. Would absolutely recommend 100% THANK YOU !
Response from the owner: Good Morning Paul, Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience with us. We are absolutely delighted to receive it and are pleased we were able to resolve the issues for you. It’s been a pleasure working with you. If you have any further need in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Very helpful and good communication, great product. Thank you.
Very happy with doors. Look great. The installation was quick and straightforward.Will recommend
FGC were brilliant. Great advice on the best windows to get. Extremely good installation. Always ready to solve any installation or manufacturing issues. We are extremely happy with the end result!
Frameless windows were brilliant, Liam Alfie and James were great, polite, courteous, and left the site clean and tidy. The windows look amazing, Great service from start to finish. Many Thanks
We love these doors and look forward to having them open a bit more once the patio has ben completed. They really have a "wow" factor and this becomes a double "wow" when people are shown how the corner can be completely opened up. It was about a year from my first enquiry to the doors being installed as there was a considerable amount of building work required to prepare the room. throughout this period I remained in touch with FGC and the service was exceptional. The installation team was on site for a day, starting early and working through to completion before driving back to Kent!! We have been really pleased with the standard of workmanship and even had compliments from other tradesmen working on the room (most of whom had never seen doors like this). These are expensive doors but the price difference from a normal set of bi-folds was well worth it for the uninterrupted view you get. The doors were installed in February but I have held off doing the review until the room was more finished so I could post a more representative picture. Once the patio is done the look will be even better than we originally envisaged. I have attached a few pictures of the room (the white table is only a temporary measure while we wait for the new coffee table).
From first contact to installation, my interactions with FGC have been easy, fast and professional. The end product is superb, we are so happy with our new doors - wish we had done this years ago. Well done FGC!!
This is the second time we have installed FGC and we are very happy with our second installation- very sleek and stylish and all staff very helpful, thanks
Frameless Glass Curtains have few competitors so they could take a lax approach to their work. However, that is not the case. We have had a porch installed in a space that was not square or aligned. The service from survey to finish has been above standard. Barry’s attention to detail and determination that the work would not be complete until his high standards were met was much appreciated. The communication from the admin side was clear and helpful. So all in all we will be using Frameless Glass again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
Brilliant product, what a difference, no frames to block our view of the Brecon Beacons. The service has been the best I think I have ever received and the fitting team were faultless - they travelled 5 hours to get to us in Wales, arriving 30 minutes early, working flat out without a break for 9 hours before driving 5 hours back, all without one complaint!!
Ordered Crittal-style French doors in aluminium. The doors look fantastic and are so much better than the ancient sliding doors I had before. The company were very friendly and easy to deal with. They were understanding of my delays due to a flood. The installers were professional and polite and poor things had to work on the hottest day of the year. Would definitely recommend FGC.
Really great service from this family run company. We love the doors and the install was top notch. Thanks!
Great service and amazing finish! Would highly recommend!
Highly competent office and site staff, great product and at a fair price. Couldn't be happier with the entire experience and end result.
From the beginning to the end, everyone at FGC have been amazing. I knew straight away that the glazing FGC would provide and install would be spectacular and how right that was! The FGC glazing allows our Edwardian stained glass door to still be a main feature and in fact it shows it off perfectly. We are so happy with the end result and can’t praise FGC highly enough, somehow 5 stars doesn’t seem to be high enough.
Their windows are second to none. No other company in Germany, UK or anywhere else can produce such a fabulous product.Any issues that has come up, they always come & fix it. The staff are so nice and polite. For a small company they do really a great job over all. The main things are the frameless bifolds that you hardly have any frame in the line of vision and there is a 5 years guarantee. Mr & Mrs Jahedi
Delighted with our new frameless glass doors. Had lots of lovely comments, even all the trades who have been working on our house have said they've not seen anything like them. Great having something a little unusual. The quality of the doors is of a very high standard. The service from FGC has been very good too, from ordering through to installation. All went very smoothly with no problems. Paid a bit more than regular bifolds, but worth every penny. Best decision, no regrets at all.
Great service and very welcoming for my father and I. Adrian in particular was very efficient, gave great pertinent advice and guidance on my future purchase!
Excellent in all aspects from initial viewing in showroom to actual installation.
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.
Great company with excellent, friendly and responsive service, the guys were helpful and efficient with the installation and the slide and turn doors are a fantastic product.
Fantastic service from start to finish, from the surveying, contact with office to the workmen. I have experience through work of a number of companies providing similar products and these guys have been by far the best to deal with
FGC installed a two-panel frameless glass door at our property yesterday. Wow!! the installation is exactly as discussed, and was carried out by two of FGC's team members who were so professional and courteous. They were excellent, and we have no hesitation in recommending FGC and their team to anyone considering such an installation.We are delighted with the installation, and very pleased we chose FGC.Well done FGC!!
The quality of the windows / doors are second to none.The customer service was first class from placing the order to installation we were kept informed at every step.The installation team led by Richard left our house and patio cleaner than when they arrivedI would recommend FGC 100%Tony- Burnley
From start to finish everything was excellent.Fab u lasThank you
BRILLIANT SERVICE FROM START TO FINISHHighly recommended.
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.
I love my doors! It’s transformed my place. The people are great, no nonsense, organised and efficient. I’d recommend them to anyone
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.
Response from the owner: Hello Ian, thank you very much for leaving us a review and glad you're happy with your doors and our service.
Great staff and great products! Have visited the showroom to view doors, really loved all of them! Have referred to a friend - Can't recommend enough
Really great doors. Really are something different. Expensive, but you really pay for what you get here.

What our customers say

Feedback-wise all very good. No complaints at all. Not only would recommend but plan to buy another one in a year or two! Happy for you to put me down as a demo person and when the house(s) is finished you’d be welcome to have a video of the doors opening / closing as you have on your website as the views will be amazing. Cheers, Robert. You can read about this project here: http://www.fgc.dev/frameless-bifolding-doors-in-a-house-made-of-straw/

Delighted with the windows – they make our kitchen so much lighter and are a joy to use. Two teething problems since installation have been dealt with promptly and efficiently by FGC at no charge. Definitely recommend them to

I am very happy with the doors – I saw them last night after work – though I didn’t open them as I wanted to make sure I followed the installers’ instructions not to. They look wonderful and my boyfriend and mum tell me they were absolutely lovely chaps. The finish seems brilliant and appears to be a huge improvement on the last installation. Ms Warren, London

We were only at home for one day following the installation. A courier delivering a parcel admired the porch and asked who built it for us. Success I think.   Mrs J,

I just wanted to say that I remain hugely impressed by your level of service. The two chaps who came out to service our doors were once again marvellous.  They are very polite and clearly very skilled. It’s very easy these days to complain and sometimes it’s nice to pass on credit where it is due. Please thank your team. Kind regards

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Adrian was very passionate about the product and did a good job in promoting it. We were very impressed with the factory visit to see process from start to finish. Always found Adrian very helpful and communicative throughout the process. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) All arrived on time.  Were we clean and tidy? Yes

Regarding your service I would like to make the following comments Web site, initial contact and service My wife saw a product similar to FGC Glass Curtains whilst on holiday. After undertaking a lot of searching on the internet we came across FGC. FGC offered a product we could not find anywhere else, i.e. a true frameless glass product, no side borders, only the top and bottom running rails. The product looked as if you

We had been looking for ages for the solution to fill two large spaces leading from the house to our new Orangery. From the moment Gary showed us the product at Partridge Farm we knew it was just what we wanted. A year later and we are still delighted. We broke one of the glass handles the other day and they have just left after fixing a replacement FOC. Hows that for service?

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Yes a bit abrupt especially the on site visit. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) Excellent. Were we clean and tidy? Good but the windows were left uncleaned so difficult to check for scratches. VG at organising a company to deal with the scratches + v good service from scratch man. And finally are you pleased with our doors (would you
