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 installer was excellent. In spite of being let down by another member of the team he got on with with the job in a positive manner. Disruption was kept to a minimum and he cleared and tidied up. He demonstrated how to use the doors, ensured I knew how to operate them and answered

Delighted

Delighted with final result and extremely pleased that I decided on these ‘frameless glass doors’ over conventional bifolds. The company had no end of patience with any pre-order questions that I raised and the factory visit and visit to view an existing installation were very informative and reassuring. The team that fitted were professional, attentive

New doors and they have transformed our relationship with the outdoor space

When it has been sunny we have made full use of the new doors and they have transformed our relationship with the outdoor space. The design and colour of the doors has modernised the look of the back of the house especially now we do not have lashings of uPVC everywhere. We were very happy

Fabulous loggias

The single-glazed frameless glass curtains have transformed our balconies into fabulous enclosed loggias that we can use all the year round to enjoy the sun in all seasons. Being single-glazed, there was no need for planning permission. The fitters were very good, careful, pleasant and courteous. We looked at a cheaper manufacturer but opted for

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

Mr A – Leavesden

With regards to feedback, the pre-sales advice and support from Adrian was excellent and we found it really valuable to visit the factory and see the demonstration doors. Furthermore, the installers were very professional, on time, polite, tidy, hard working and went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable operating the doors before
