Technical Details & Certifications

Frameless Glass Curtains Ltd, have extensively tested and patented their range of glass bifolding doors to meet several British and European standards pertaining to doors.

The testing of products is not only important to provide customers with peace of mind, but is there to ensure that doors are fit for purpose and meet important safety, security, weathering and performance standards.

We often take standards for granted but there are good reasons why these are in place and why we ensure our doors meet or exceed them. For the glass used in our doors, this meets BS6262 for thickness and type and in line with legal requirements and building regulations is “safety glass”. Safety glass is a prerequisite in all doors and low level windows and ensures a level of impact resistance not just to deter burglars but also to protect us from injury should we accidentally come into contact with the glass in our doors.

Security is paramount in doors. With the many thousands of different locks in the market it is no longer the case that doors can simply have a lock fitted and this makes them secure. Testing institutes such as Secured by Design or the British Standards Institute have developed specific tests for each different type of door. This is to ensure that doors are fitted with locks that keep them secure and even when they do come under attack and that they can retain their security even when damaged or forced.

With so many different types of locations possible where doors can be fitted, weather resistance is also key. Our doors are tested no matter where they are installed. City centre or suburban locations are obviously less exposed than coastal or countryside homes. Therefore specific and exacting tests are in place to ensure doors meet required levels of air, wind and water resistance.

Frameless Glass Curtains Ltd know that to provide a high quality product it must meet the relevant standards in place. So we extensively test, improve and modify our doors to keep pace with ever changing legislation and of course meet the current Building Regulations for energy efficiency as well.

In buying our doors you have peace of mind that they will be secure, warm, fit for purpose and long lasting for many years to come.

We own the patents to our products and many of them have been designed entirely in house.  The pages listed below show the technical and testing details:

Evvy Edwards, Cambridge

Dear Frameless Glass Curtains, I would thoroughly recommend anyone to use your company. Your product is excellent and the installers were delightful: on time, tidy, quick, cheerful. An initial problem was dealt with immediately. The doors have changed how I feel about living in my small house; they have made the sitting room feel double

Really Pleased

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)?   Very polite and attentive, always got back quickly with answers to queries but there was no hard sell which I really appreciated after being bombarded by calls and contacts from other companies!  The measuring up part seemed more complicated than it needed to

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

Mr M W

We had been looking for ages for the solution to fill two large spaces leading from the house to our new Orangery. From the moment Gary showed us the product at Partridge Farm we knew it was just what we wanted. A year later and we are still delighted. We broke one of the glass

Amazing Service

We’ve FGC doors installed in our rear extension and they really are the highlight of the whole development. The support from the FGC guys has been friendly and really responsive – Brilliant service all round!

Superb service combined with outstanding designed product

In my view, the hallmark of something well designed is simplicity combined with good looks… FGC offer this in spades. Having looked at literally hundreds of bi-folding doors, we were struck by how straightforward the FGC product is – and, as far as it is possible to eliminate the frame except around the exterior of

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, Brighton
