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.

Brilliant After Installation Service

Our FGC sliding doors were installed in May 2018.
Although we have had two relatively minor problems – neither of which stopped the doors from working – FGC have attended very promptly to carry out remedial action.
Excellent customer service from head office and excellent service from install technicians.

Fantastic aftercare service!

I had an installation of 4 doors in December 2018. During the cold snap in January this year the outside glass handle cracked. I contacted Sara in customer support and the handle was replaced free of charge by Liam and Alf who did the job quickly and professionally. They also checked that all the doors

Minor Problem Addressed

A strip of the furry trim at the top of the frame that the doors run on had come loose. On the one hand the sort of thing that one could have a go at fixing; on the other hand having witnessed the care and attention the FGC installation team do their work; I thought
