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.

What our customers say

Ms A @ Earlsfield road London SW18

frameless glass doors invited me to their workshop to view the glass curtains for myself, and to show me how they were made. Installation was clean and tidy. When they say they are going to turn up, they do, and are always on time.The product looks great. It really does make the refurb seem complete,

See for yourself this brilliant design

“Visiting the FGC factory before a site viewing was the best decision we made. Very few of the reviewers make any mention of the apparent simplicity that disguises the cleverness and ingenuity in this way of dealing with a large size glazed opening. At the factory the finer details behind the design were explained, and

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.

Highly recommended

From the first moment of making contact we were given a very personal and friendly service. The survey, fitting and installation were all carried out by helpful and pleasant people. Follow up service was equally good. I am extremely pleased with the results.

Cheerful with a ‘can do’ attitude

FGC fitters Mick and Baz arrived at 0754hr ready to begin work. They were polite, helpful and fitted in seamlessly with the existing project team responsible for the restoration of this significant village property. The boys worked without fuss, cheerful with a ‘can do’ attitude taking the time to explain the system as they fitted

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
