An example of how FGC innovates in providing bespoke home solutions with our frameless front door. Supplied here to a traditional property and providing and excellent security solution, also fitted with a magnetic lock.

Frameless front door

Double Glazed Frameless front door and sidelights

Supplied and fitted by FGC to a character stone property, our frameless front door provides a contemporary solution. At the same time it blends in perfectly with the traditional features of the home.

First of all comes the design. At the centre is a large offset pivot door using our advanced floor spring on the floor. The top of the door set fixes to a secure top pivot. The door opens inwards.

At the left and the right sides are two glazed lights. These follow the curve of the aperture. Besides providing an attractive door set, these sidelights also sit neatly against the stonework with a frameless look. In particular, the surround frame sits tight up against the stonework, maximising the view and creating a wonderful open aspect to the outside stone paved area.

Frameless entrance door with a magnetic lock.

The design of our frameless double glazed system means no visible mullions and no minimal frame. It’s a unique feature, altogether different from other doors on the market. However, this frameless design also means there’s no frame where the door lock normally site.

We’ve overcome the lack of a profile housing a lock body by fitting an advanced magnetic lock. Used in high security buildings such as banks, jewellers and offices, magnetic locks provide one of the highest security electric locks on the market.

An electromagnetic lock, or maglock, is a sophisticated locking device. Two components – the lock itself, and the armature plate make up the set. The door releases via several types of release switches such as wall switches, key fobs and even a keypad.

In spite of its small size, magnetic locks have an incredible holding force. It is not unusual to have a holding force of several hundred kilos with these types of magnetic lock.

Even better with these lock types comes the option of “fail safe” or “fail secure”. Fails safe means in the event of a power failure you can open the door. Fails secure is the opposite. The lock stays locks in the event of a power failure.

At all times a strong current passes through the device connecting the armature plate to the main body. Above all, the force is so strong, even significant force keeps the door securely locked.

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

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

From the start to the finish we felt comfortable with your staff and installers. It was a product just as we had hoped and envisaged for our new House double glazed, frameless glass doors in 4 openings! Perfect. The doors are a talking point and every body comments on how good they look! They are

Wonderful

We have been amazing our friends and family with our FGC since we had it installed a few weeks ago. Every ‘trade’ that is working on site has been fascinated and suitably impressed with the product and engineering. We are over the moon as it has really been the star of our home extension. Thanks

Unfailingly Helpful

It is a good time to say to you that while we still very much the windows, the ease of opening, the views closed or open, now that the weather has turned colder we have been struck quick dramatically by the improvement in insulation.  The large windows here that you/we have replaced were double glazed

Frameless Glass are one of the most impressive companies I have ever come across

This company have a product which to my mind is “second to none”. Their glass doors really let you feel you are outside as they have the tiniest of joins…I used to know the exact cm measurement! I was initially worried though about what would happen on follow up problems as their main office is

Definitely recommend them to all.

It’s nearly a year since you installed our glass curtains. They have been really great, exceeding our expectations, particularly during the winter months when they were absolutely draught free. When they are fully open you really feel that the lounge is part of the garden, it all becomes one space. Many thanks, they were one
