Frameless Bifolding Windows advantages in your home.

Our frameless slide and fold doors, whether single glazed or double glazed provide many benefits in your home.  However, the same clever engineering can also be used to create Frameless Bifolding Windows, also known as slide and fold windows.

Slide and fold aluminium windows.

Frameless bifolding windows in new build home. Our slide and fold aluminium windows provide several benefits over conventional casement windows fitted with friction hinges. The different nature of how slide and fold windows open compared to conventional open out casement windows means there are a number of considerations in the home.

You get the benefits of a large picture window while still having the ability to provide far more ventilation than a traditional casement or tilt and turn window. Better still, in the warmer months, you can fully open up the window opening, just like a door. There’s no other type of window that can provide this flexibility.

Features of frameless bifolding windows.

  • More flexible than a sliding window with a fixed panel and a sliding sash.
  • Slide and fold windows can provide up to a 90% opening.
  • No fixed mullions or transoms.
  • Ideal as window replacements for old conservatories with timber or PVCu windows.
  • Ideal in bars or restaurants, and they made convenient serving hatches too.

Where can you fit slide and fold windows?

Slide and fold windows are suitable for any room in the house. The significant different between a slide and fold window and a casement window is the lack of mullions and transoms. This means you won’t be able to replicate the design of your existing windows.  However, these windows are designed to open fully and aren’t intended to match the opening action of standard windows.  Therefore they’re ideal for the back of the house, for a new extension as well as a new porch.

Looking for an inwards opening window? Slide and fold windows can open in.

Frameless Double Glazed Doors & Windows RadlettWith many other aluminium windows, the facility to open inwards is usually reserved for commercial windows in industrial buildings. The only option for residential property is a tilt and turn window.  With a frameless slide and fold window, you get the facility for the panels to open inwards if this is your preference. This makes slide and fold windows ideal as kitchen windows over a sink.  If you struggle to reach the handle a casement window over a kitchen sink, our windows are easier to use.

The open in design of our windows also makes them ideal if your windows lead out onto a path or other area where an open out casement may cause a hazard to take up space.

Slide and fold windows provide full ventilation.

The design of our system provides your home with a window that can full open where needed. Not only does this provide better ventilation but also makes the window flexible and convenient. You can use our windows to create an al-fresco feel in the home in the summer months. If your property is the type that can’t have patio doors for example, our windows offer a great way to open up the home.

Security of slide and fold windows.

Our windows come with the same security features of our doors meaning they stay sealed and secure in the closed position.  There is a choice of lockable handles in different colours to choose from as well.  Our windows utilise the secure locking points that engage in the strong perimeter aluminium frame as well as the aluminium rails found in each window panel.

As with our slide and fold doors you get all the benefits of huge colour choice with over 150 RAL colours available.  The glass units provided in our double glazed system are thermally efficient working with the energy efficient frames to lower your heating bills.

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 All polite and as clean as necessary, although given the site was a work in progress with other builders / materials around there was limited tidying required. Having said that, subsequent visits to rememdy teething issues have been also very efficient and tidy. Are you pleased with our frameless glass curtains? Yes and they are hugely popular with friends / guests when visiting. Would you recommend us to other people? Yes – and I have done so on several occasions already Do you have any advice for us? Keep up the good work … and keep innovating. 20150113

Yes we are very pleased with the doors and would recommend them. Initial contact was done by our neighbour at Kingswood so cannot comment, however, the price we were initially quoted was incorrect and significantly lower than it turned out to be. Not sure why. We at Derwent only had a verbal quotation. The installation

Three sided bay window

We used FGC to manufacture and install frameless glass doors on all three sides of a large terrace bay. The design was complex and required a flexible and innovative approach to their existing designs. The result was outstanding – clear uninterrupted views over the countryside and a flexible opening pattern which allows fresh air no

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 C, Bournmouth

The installer was excellent. In spite of being let down by another member of the team he got on with with the job in a positive manner. Disruption was kept to a minimum and he cleared and tidied up. He demonstrated how to use the doors, ensured I knew how to operate them and answered
