Bifolding doors for garage conversions

Our bifolding doors for garage conversions let you take an old unused garage and turn it into a great new space for work, play or as a guest suite.  In this article, we explain why our frameless slide and fold doors are one of the best ways to turn an unused garage into a new room in your home.

Frameless bifolding doors for garage conversions.

Our frameless bifolding doors are suitable for any kind of garage or storage area whether the garage is attached to your home or as a separate building.

  • Single or double garages.
  • Suitable for outbuildings.
  • Can add value to your property.
  • Provides a new way to enjoy your garden away from the main house.
  • Frees up space in your house.

Why consider a frameless sliding and fold door for your garage conversion?

A sliding or bifolding door is the best type of door in a garage conversion but the popular full-framed versions come with their limitations.

Sliding doors are an excellent choice for flooding the room with light and providing a ‘glass wall’ when closed. The bigger glass panels of sliding doors will turn this smaller space, often with only one side of the garage having a door, into a light-filled space.  However sliding doors will only give you 50% of the available clear opening with a double track or two-thirds opening with a triple track.

Bifolding doors allow you to open up the entire wall to create a wonderful open space in the summer months.  However, bifolding doors have the disadvantage of smaller glass panels and more vertical aluminium mullions.

Our frameless bifolding doors are sliding and folding doors in one great product.

Our frameless slide and fold doors come with both the benefit of uninterrupted glass area provided by sliding doors as well as the fully open aspect when you want it, of bifolding doors.

  • Offers the uninterrupted views of sliding doors.
  • The convenience of bifolding doors.
  • The functional traffic door found in bifolds for everyday use.
  • Huge choice of colours.
  • A lower weathered threshold than bifolding or sliding doors.
  • From two up to multiple panels.

The benefits of frameless bifolding doors for garage conversions.

Our frameless bifolding doors are a great choice if you are thinking of converting your garage into a habitable or usable space.  They provide all the security, energy efficiency and reliability you expect from a quality product. They also come with other great benefits too.

Unique frameless design.

The frameless design with no visible mullions is unique to our product where other doors marketed as frameless actually have aluminium or plastic trim on the glass edges.  Our doors use our patented glass spacer bar and engineered gaskets where the doors meet. No aluminium, no visible mullions, no uninterrupted views.

Suitable for any kind of access required.

The convenient main door found in our slide and fold doors lets you use your doors every day without having to fold the rest of the panels back.  All our door panels work independently giving you not only a traffic door when you want it, but the flexibility of sliding each panel exactly where you want it for ventilation.

Greater control of how you use your doors.

Our doors also give you more flexibility in your room as well. The design of our doors lets you place furniture right up against the doors even if they open inwards – something you can’t do with a conventional bifold.  And only our doors give you both the views of a sliding door and the open aspect of a folding door.

Customise your doors as you want them.

For your garage conversion, you can customise your doors with a big selection of colours, a choice of contemporary door furniture.

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.

What our customers say

Hugely impressed by your level of service.

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

Fantastic aftercare service!

I had an installation of 4 doors in December 2018. During the cold snap in January this year the outside glass handle cracked. I contacted Sara in customer support and the handle was replaced free of charge by Liam and Alf who did the job quickly and professionally. They also checked that all 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.

Our Frameless Glass walls

Putting a frameless glass walls between our South facing lounge and dining room conservatories was one of the best things we have ever done in our house. When shut, they keep out the cold in winter and, most importantly, the heat on very hot summer days. When open during sunny winter days, the heat warms

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

Excellent product and great service

I am delighted to have found FGC online! I installed their glass curtain between my office and the kitchen/living room area. It looks fabulous! Easy to use and can be locked.
