What makes our frameless glass doors special?

dg_Stowmarket_Suffolk_09

Thousands of satisfied homeowners have benefited from our specially designed and manufactured glass frameless doors. These are made to provide a number of advantages over conventional full framed bifolding doors in aluminium.

The original concept for a Frameless Glass Curtain came about over 10 years ago. Basic frameless sliding doors were already available but these had a simple design, and only available as single glazed products and the leaves sliding on Teflon (PTFE). In addition, these basic European products we considered unsuitable for the quality-conscious, discerning UK market and consumer.

An already great concept in doors, made better by FGC.

In 2009, we brought about our advanced double glazed slide and fold door when, our Managing Director, Gary Beresford set about improving what was a great initial concept for the UK Market.

Our first frameless glass door also used the Teflon design concept for operation, but this was significantly improved by us enabling our doors to come with a 5-year guarantee instead of one year offered with other products.

Substantial investment in creating what we believe to the perfect slide and fold door followed. We designing new hardware, suitable glass units to enhance the frameless concept and engineering the product for the ultimate in long-term reliability.   Only in this way would our product compete with the long guarantees and performance requirements of the UK home improvement market and provide a better all-round product.

Our doors were submitted for testing to European Standards as well as BS6375-part 1 2009. They passed with flying colours.

As a forward-thinking and progressive company, we listen to our customers. More and more of our clients wanted wider and taller doors in keeping with the modern trend for large glass screens.  Our doors fully maximise the light and space desired in today’s modern extensions.

Over the years we have continuously updated and improved our frameless door products.  Innovations include designing a wheeled system that enables doors to be manufactured wider and taller than other bifolding doors on the market. Better still, 95% of the components found in our doors are UK manufactured.

A bifolding door to meet and exceed the highest standards.

Subsequent product improvements and design have seen our doors pass the demanding tests of PAS 24 2012 (Enhanced Security Performance Requirements for Doorsets & Windows in the UK). Other accreditation includes:

  • Certification for Argon Gas EN1279–3, EN1279–2 (anti-misting),
  • Trustmark certification
  • CENS Solutions CMS Mark BS1198 + BS1279 Compliant Certificate
  • Membership of the Glass and Glazing Federation and Federation of Small Businesses.
  • CE Compliance.
  • Patent granted on our double glazed units.

We believe our doors to be one of the most advanced of their kind in the UK market. We also now have patents granted in UK, USA and Australia as well as patents in India & the EU. Our doors are exported to Spain, France, Sweden, Malta, America, Germany, Carribean and the Channel Islands.

Customer service and satisfaction is at the core of our business. We offer a no quibble guarantee and are proud of the many positive reviews and recommendations we receive.

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

Thank you again for the doors, we’re very happy with them and, once the renderer has finished (hopefully tomorrow), we’re really looking forward to removing the plastic protection so we can see through them properly. Mr B,

After researching the market for a contemporary sliding minimal frame patio door, we were delighted to come across Frameless Glass Curtains. We were so pleased with the doors we ordered another set for the dining room and were not let down – the service we received was consistently good from staff both in and out of the office. From the start they have been knowledgeable, polite and happy to spend time helping us with our

We are pleased with the service, and the quality of finish so far, I look forward to seeing how they look after a few months. My only issues was the timings and delays, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and indeed have already a few times or use you again.

We are also happy to be on your list of completed installations.   The installation team were very good clean, tidy and polite.   It all started with our visit to you and  we are very impressed with your company.  

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Initial emails were very prompt, informative and positive and yes polite. Keen to accommodate our visit to the workshop and everyone very friendly. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) Installation ahead of schedule and were on time on the day. Were we clean and tidy? Yes, the work area was left clean and work completed to a good standard. And finally

FGC built my frameless porch as per the attached photo. The work was carried on time by their professional fitters. The quality of their work is outstanding. Nothing was overlooked and the final product was worth every penny. I am very happy with the investment I did.

Mr H, Wales

We have been extremely happy with our installation. The doors have made a huge difference to the view from our kitchen into the garden. It is a quality product. After 7 years one of our doors developed a fault. I claimed under the guarantee. The matter was dealt with quickly & efficiently. The replacement door was fitted with the minimum of fuss by the team of fitters. Great job. Thank

Clive Lowe
Happy client
Unit has been replaced thank you, once again I find FGC have responded to a problem with a no quibble replacement, it is good to know that there is still companies left who honour their guarantee in the proper manner and send installation teams that carry out their work in a professional manner with competence and courtesy, I would be quite willing to give any prospective customers a reference if that would be of interest

Mr D

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
