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.

Every one of our frameless double glazed doors offers features and benefits you won’t find on other products.  Not only do our doors have no visible mullions, but they also have some of the lowest thresholds and unique, patented glass construction.

Wow!! the installation is exactly as discussed, and was carried out by two of FGC's team members who were so professional and courteous.

We purchased a beautiful Origin sliding door and side window from FGC. FGC installed the sliding door and window on time, however the sliding door did not fit correctly. Issues can happen. FGC made the process of re-surveying and re-installation very simple. FGC is a very pleasant and professional company to deal with. We are very happy with their service and would strongly recommend them.

Excellent planning and product advice. All the staff were polite courteous and friendly.On the day of the installation, the team arrived bang on time -we live in Wales so a long drive from Kent! They had the job done by lunchtime (fitting a sliding patio door) and I have to say that on first impression of the unit, it looks and feels like solid quality.

We had a 5m stretch of these wonderful doors installed several years ago and have been very happy with the uninterrupted view of the garden that they allow from the living room. They are admired by every tradesman who sees them. A minor problem we experienced with water ingress last year was promptly and effectively resolved, and the doors were serviced for free at the same time.

What our customers say

Recent maintenance visit

FGC came to carry out some minor maintenance and as always they were very efficient and friendly. During this period of social distancing, they were well prepared and able to do the work safely and professionally.

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

Mr W @ elm Park road London N3

Just a note to let you know how delighted we are with the sliding folding glazed panels installed by your firm at the rear of our house. Friends come into our kitchen now and are just amazed at how the same space has been transformed and opened up, simply by the addition of your glazed

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

Hugely impressed by your level of service.

I just wanted to say that I remain hugely impressed by your level of service. The two chaps who came out to service our doors were once again marvellous.  They are very polite and clearly very skilled. It’s very easy these days to complain and sometimes it’s nice to pass on credit where it is

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.

Mr & Mrs R – Berkhamsted

After researching the market for a contemporary sliding minimal frame patio door, we were delighted to come across Frameless Glass Curtains. We were so pleased with the doors we ordered another set for the dining room and were not let down – the service we received was consistently good from staff both in and out

Brilliant!

We are absolutely delighted with our frameless glass doors. They have transformed our living area in terms of light and space, giving a contemporary feel. The whole process has been very efficient and the fitters who came to install the doors were excellent. I would definitely recommend!

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

Chartered Building Surveyor I was impressed with the installers

I would like to reiterate that we are very pleased with our new FGC doors. As a Chartered Building Surveyor I was impressed with the installers who were careful, methodical and very professional my wife who is most particular was also very impressed with their cleanliness. I am sure we will get many years of
