CMS1253DB – Factory Production Control Systems

On 18th September 2018, FGC’s factory processes were assessed as meeting the strict standards of CMS 1253DB.

Our latest certification further enhances the status of our frameless sliding folding doors, as one of the best exterior quality frameless doors. Furthermore, they’ve been certified by the UK’s largest certification provider CEN Solutions. 

What certification mean for you.

We know you have a huge amount of choice when it comes to new doors for your home.  At FGC we don’t just want you to take our word as to the quality and design in our doors.  We want independent organisations to verify it too.

Our latest certification demonstrates our production control procedures ensure every door you buy from us comes made to the highest possible standards. And unlike many other bifolding doors on the market, you know exactly who makes your doors.

Slide and fold doors complying with the latest British and European Standards.

Our doors now come independently tested and certified to meet the current British Standard BS4873 as well as the European Standard BS EN14351-1:2006.

BS4873 is the British Standard specifying the requirements for external doors in several key areas of their construction.  These include the design, construction and overall performance. Above all the standard only applies to doors made in a factory.

Importantly, BS4873 applies to all the important factors that matter to you when investing in a quality door.  For instance, components, construction and design, glazing, security, weather performance, energy efficiency and just some of over 20 different aspects of this British Standard.

The European Standard BS EN 14351 relates to the product standard and performance characteristics of external doors.

Our CMS1253DB – Factory Production Control Systems Certificate.

How our doors achieve Certification.

CEN Solutions looks at our entire operation, enabling them to understand the product as well as the production processes. Where any professional advice is needed helping us make even better products, CEN Solutions are trained to provide it.

As well as this, achieving certification means raising our already high standards of product quality and manufacturing efficiency.

The leading certifications in the UK, such as Secured by Design approve the independent testing and certification awarded by CEN Solutions.

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

All in all a very good experience with FGC

Thanks you for everything FGC did on this project for us.  We found you from an on-line search which doesn’t always identify helpful or committed suppliers, especially where the requirement is small or simple as this one was..  FGC were both helpful and committed.  Thank you especially for progressing things much quicker that the weeks

Replacement doors

I had been looking for some time to replace my patio doors in our lounge as they had very wide plastic frames and wanted something that wouldn’t restrict the view up the garden I asked to see if it was possible to view some already installed close by. Luckily there was, we went and viewed

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

Mr & Mrs Glasgow – Chalfont St Peter

We are very pleased with our frameless curtains in our dining room and lounge, both of which open out into a conservatory.   Our first contact with you, by telephone, was excellent.  We were invited to look at your glass curtains at your showroom in Chatham which is an hour and a half distant.  Seeing

STUNNING!

FGC patio doors have replaced Georgian windows overlooking my garden, bringing the outdoors into my upper ground living room all year round. Opening out onto a balcony with steps down to the garden, they’ve transformed the whole flat. Elegant and easy to use, they also let in loads more light and keep out far more

We are absolutely delighted with the doors, they are so classy and modern. Paul (FGC) was excellent and knew his job. The workmanship is superb. All our friends and family think they are fantastic. Thank you once again. 20150113

Very Pleased with the Freedom the Installation affords

We are very pleased with the freedom the installation affords us with easy access from lounge to dining room. Aesthetically the glass curtain installation is very pleasing. All appears well but we must point out the bottom bar is not firmly fixed in the channel in the floor & moves if one stands upon it.

Porch glass cutains

Everybody from survey to install knew what they had to do and advised on what needed to be done prior to install. The glass cutains are just what was needed for the porch and have created a talking point within the village. They do look splendid and we are very pleased with them.
