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.

The best doors ever!!

We have had our corner installation for about 2 years now and they are the biggest wow factor of the house (the view’s not too bad either😊). The summer is great with truly indoor/outdoor living. The biggest surprise has been the amazing aftercare we’ve received from FGC. They are so patient as it’s often a

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

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

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Staff were polite and prompt in answering telephone questions. There were technical problems with our installation and staff were open and discussed options and were polite. The fitters were surprised at the distance they had to travel to reach us each time, although we

Mr A B

We are very pleased with the glass curtains, which do what we want them to – separate the house and conservatory, meeting building regs, but as unobtrusively as possible. We were very happy with the service we received and the efficiency of those who fitted the curtains and we would have no hesitation in recommending

What an Experience!

We were recommended to use FGC by our builder and one of us visited a client who had recently had his installation. We have been hampered with delays regarding our lounge where the doors were being installed so it was refreshing to have FGC arrive at 8am and be finsihed installing and waiting for a

Great aftercare

We had our doors fitted in 2015 and have been very pleased with them. As with most things there are times when an adjustment is required to the doors or in our case a door needing to be replaced as it had developed a problem with condensation. The company has been very good at resolving

Small maintenance issue

We had a small issue with the opening door, we contacted FGC and they arranged for a team to come. They sorted the issue very quickly then cleaned the runners and door seals, fully tested the operation of the doors and carried an additional mod on the door handle. All done and dusted with an
