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.
