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.

Frameless Glass Curtains have few competitors so they could take a lacked 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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Unfailingly Helpful

It is a good time to say to you that while we still very much the windows, the ease of opening, the views closed or open, now that the weather has turned colder we have been struck quick dramatically by the improvement in insulation.  The large windows here that you/we have replaced were double glazed

A great installation

“Thank you again for a great installation, we are really enjoying the extra light.” I will be sending a load more images your way at some point today.

Mr T – Woking

Great post installation service

In addition to the quality of the product – which is stunning, and head an shoulders above anything else on the market – the ongoing support and maintenance is impressive. I had a small issue with the doors recently and their maintenance team came back within 48 hours to resolve everything whilst giving the doors

Work ethic simply cannot be doubted

Can I also thank your fitting team for turning out in atrocious weather that day, their work ethic simply cannot be doubted, please pass on our thanks to them and everyone involved for the service we have received. The doors look fantastic and we hope to add a third set, perhaps later this year.

Stunning Glass Doors

FGC are an excellent family run business. They manufactured and fitted a stunning pair of glass doors for a private client which were complicated in design but FGC were keen and willing to help resolve all details successfully. Would highly recommend. Thank you.

Highly Recommend both the doors and the service

Q. As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? A. Yes, very polite and helpful when I called / emailed.   Q. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) A.Yes, the surveyor was informative and on time. Q. Were we clean and tidy? A. I was not onsite when it

Mr C R

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
