FGC Staff Working in your Home

  1. Our suppliers have suitable measures in place and we remain well placed to fulfil customer orders.
  2. We are instructing all our staff to observe all the recommended precautions when working in customer houses. We also advise keeping to the safe recommended distance and there is no need to supervise our installers.
  3. All staff are fully briefed about the need to self-isolate and not come into work should they feel unwell.
  4. To help us maintain social distancing, please ensure you remain 2 metres from our staff whilst they are working in your property.
  5. We also request that any other contractors working in your home also maintain social distancing from our staff. There can be no other workforce/trades or other people in our working area.
  6. Staff members from FGC are required to wear a facemask during any face-to-face communication. We respectively ask that if we are talking to you or any member of your party (builder/architect etc) that a face covering is worn.
  7. We have instructed all our staff that they are to leave site if they feel that it is not safe for them to carry out their tasks. If this happens we will liaise with you to arrange an alternative fitting date when work can be carried out safely. In line with our terms of business, this may incur additional charges.

We have put these procedures in place for the direct safety of our staff and their families and believe that by following these procedures strictly we are also keeping our customers safe.

We will keep our procedures under review and continue to follow guidance from local authority trading standards and trade associations.

What our customers say

First class

We moved last year and wanted to maximise the view right through from the rear to the front of the building, overlooking the river. After much searching we found FGC, who installed internal glass doors between the rooms. FGC were very efficient and although we are in the North they sorted out a subsequent small

People admiring our new porch

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, Broadstairs

Mrs J

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.  

Mr and Mrs W

Always Polite

Re delivery, there was an initial hope that you might be earlier than the 6-8 week lead time, but once that wasn’t going to happen, you gave us a date, and were then able to bring it forward a couple of days to fit around our holiday schedule, which was great.  Guys turned up at

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

Happy with all your support

The bottom line, I am happy with all your support to get me the financial support for this project.  Without your help the project would not have been realised.

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.
I visited the factory and it looks smart and professional. All communication has been fast and also very professional. Will definitely use again!

Basically the installation itself was done pretty quickly and efficiently – three guys turned up early in the morning and were done by lunchtime. Polite, tidy. 20150112

A sincere thank you to your installation team

We would like to say how pleased we are with our fabulous new FGC doors and conservatory.  We thought the transformation would be great, but it’s only once they’re in that we’ve been able to see the full glory of the design – and our view!  We’ve had all the making-good done now, taken off

Mr R

Scrimgeour

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

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

Mr M B @ Praa Sands, Cornwall

We wanted to connect two room – a ‘sun room’ and living room -by replacing a large window with some glass doors. We contacted local suppliers and Googled ‘glass partitions’. Local suppliers weren’t much help, however the Google came up with just what we wanted – frameless glass doors. We contacted Gary for a price.
