Frameless front door

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.

Our small job was handled extremely professionally from start to finish and we are very pleased with the results.
Very happy with the service I have received, everything went smoothly no issues, I was kept up to date throughout the process and the fitting team were very professional, polite and friendly I would recommend fgc to anyone thank you
Amazing service, great aftercare, incredible product. It was hard to find something that would fit in our house and would have been pleasing to the eye aswell as stylish and modern and unique.From sales to install was smooth and stress free amazing bunch of people to work with I had a great experience
Great product with diligent, professional staff from start to finish. Highly recommended.
Firstly I have to say a huge thank you to Paul the owner of FGC for being willing to take on the job of sorting out the extremely shoddy and poor installation of the Origin doors and windows fitted on my new build home, when it was built. And replacing the damaged gaskets. I had your guys with me for two days this week. What a breath of fresh air comparted to the people of originally installed my doors and windows. Extremely professional and lovely chaps. They worked tirelessly to sort out the many issues we had. Would absolutely recommend 100% THANK YOU !
Response from the owner: Good Morning Paul, Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience with us. We are absolutely delighted to receive it and are pleased we were able to resolve the issues for you. It’s been a pleasure working with you. If you have any further need in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Very helpful and good communication, great product. Thank you.
Very happy with doors. Look great. The installation was quick and straightforward.Will recommend
FGC were brilliant. Great advice on the best windows to get. Extremely good installation. Always ready to solve any installation or manufacturing issues. We are extremely happy with the end result!
Frameless windows were brilliant, Liam Alfie and James were great, polite, courteous, and left the site clean and tidy. The windows look amazing, Great service from start to finish. Many Thanks
We love these doors and look forward to having them open a bit more once the patio has ben completed. They really have a "wow" factor and this becomes a double "wow" when people are shown how the corner can be completely opened up. It was about a year from my first enquiry to the doors being installed as there was a considerable amount of building work required to prepare the room. throughout this period I remained in touch with FGC and the service was exceptional. The installation team was on site for a day, starting early and working through to completion before driving back to Kent!! We have been really pleased with the standard of workmanship and even had compliments from other tradesmen working on the room (most of whom had never seen doors like this). These are expensive doors but the price difference from a normal set of bi-folds was well worth it for the uninterrupted view you get. The doors were installed in February but I have held off doing the review until the room was more finished so I could post a more representative picture. Once the patio is done the look will be even better than we originally envisaged. I have attached a few pictures of the room (the white table is only a temporary measure while we wait for the new coffee table).
From first contact to installation, my interactions with FGC have been easy, fast and professional. The end product is superb, we are so happy with our new doors - wish we had done this years ago. Well done FGC!!
This is the second time we have installed FGC and we are very happy with our second installation- very sleek and stylish and all staff very helpful, thanks
Frameless Glass Curtains have few competitors so they could take a lax approach to their work. However, that is not the case. We have had a porch installed in a space that was not square or aligned. The service from survey to finish has been above standard. Barry’s attention to detail and determination that the work would not be complete until his high standards were met was much appreciated. The communication from the admin side was clear and helpful. So all in all we will be using Frameless Glass again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
Brilliant product, what a difference, no frames to block our view of the Brecon Beacons. The service has been the best I think I have ever received and the fitting team were faultless - they travelled 5 hours to get to us in Wales, arriving 30 minutes early, working flat out without a break for 9 hours before driving 5 hours back, all without one complaint!!
Ordered Crittal-style French doors in aluminium. The doors look fantastic and are so much better than the ancient sliding doors I had before. The company were very friendly and easy to deal with. They were understanding of my delays due to a flood. The installers were professional and polite and poor things had to work on the hottest day of the year. Would definitely recommend FGC.
Really great service from this family run company. We love the doors and the install was top notch. Thanks!
Great service and amazing finish! Would highly recommend!
Highly competent office and site staff, great product and at a fair price. Couldn't be happier with the entire experience and end result.
From the beginning to the end, everyone at FGC have been amazing. I knew straight away that the glazing FGC would provide and install would be spectacular and how right that was! The FGC glazing allows our Edwardian stained glass door to still be a main feature and in fact it shows it off perfectly. We are so happy with the end result and can’t praise FGC highly enough, somehow 5 stars doesn’t seem to be high enough.
Their windows are second to none. No other company in Germany, UK or anywhere else can produce such a fabulous product.Any issues that has come up, they always come & fix it. The staff are so nice and polite. For a small company they do really a great job over all. The main things are the frameless bifolds that you hardly have any frame in the line of vision and there is a 5 years guarantee. Mr & Mrs Jahedi
Delighted with our new frameless glass doors. Had lots of lovely comments, even all the trades who have been working on our house have said they've not seen anything like them. Great having something a little unusual. The quality of the doors is of a very high standard. The service from FGC has been very good too, from ordering through to installation. All went very smoothly with no problems. Paid a bit more than regular bifolds, but worth every penny. Best decision, no regrets at all.
Great service and very welcoming for my father and I. Adrian in particular was very efficient, gave great pertinent advice and guidance on my future purchase!
Excellent in all aspects from initial viewing in showroom to actual installation.
Excellent service and product from FGC.I have a glass-box conservatory, built with structural glass about 20 years ago. The 2 sliding doors needed replacing, along with 2 side panels, and I contacted dozens of companies selling conservatory doors and none of them were prepared to install their doors because of the perceived risks of working with structural glass.Then I found FGC who, with no fuss at all, carried out a survey, provided a very reasonable quote for the doors/panels and then installed the doors/panels on the agreed date.Communication with the FGC office was always quick and easy. The surveyor and installation team were efficient and courteous. The product works beautifully.We can now use our conservatory again. Thanks FGC.
Great company with excellent, friendly and responsive service, the guys were helpful and efficient with the installation and the slide and turn doors are a fantastic product.
Fantastic service from start to finish, from the surveying, contact with office to the workmen. I have experience through work of a number of companies providing similar products and these guys have been by far the best to deal with
FGC installed a two-panel frameless glass door at our property yesterday. Wow!! the installation is exactly as discussed, and was carried out by two of FGC's team members who were so professional and courteous. They were excellent, and we have no hesitation in recommending FGC and their team to anyone considering such an installation.We are delighted with the installation, and very pleased we chose FGC.Well done FGC!!
The quality of the windows / doors are second to none.The customer service was first class from placing the order to installation we were kept informed at every step.The installation team led by Richard left our house and patio cleaner than when they arrivedI would recommend FGC 100%Tony- Burnley
From start to finish everything was excellent.Fab u lasThank you
BRILLIANT SERVICE FROM START TO FINISHHighly recommended.
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.
I love my doors! It’s transformed my place. The people are great, no nonsense, organised and efficient. I’d recommend them to anyone
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.
Response from the owner: Hello Ian, thank you very much for leaving us a review and glad you're happy with your doors and our service.
Great staff and great products! Have visited the showroom to view doors, really loved all of them! Have referred to a friend - Can't recommend enough
Really great doors. Really are something different. Expensive, but you really pay for what you get here.

What our customers say

In short, the product offered by Frameless Glass Curtains is nothing short of excellent. These frameless glass doors are a truly unique system that are really aesthetically pleasing and unlike any other product we could find on the market. The doors are very sleek and elegant and create real impact and wow factor. Our experience with FGC, has been, from start to finish, incredibly professional. We have a small garden which is designed to feel

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Initial emails were very prompt, informative and positive and yes polite. Keen to accommodate our visit to the workshop and everyone very friendly. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) Installation ahead of schedule and were on time on the day. Were we clean and tidy? Yes, the work area was left clean and work completed to a good standard. And finally

Unit has been replaced thank you, once again I find FGC have responded to a problem with a no quibble replacement, it is good to know that there is still companies left who honour their guarantee in the proper manner and send installation teams that carry out their work in a professional manner with competence and courtesy, I would be quite willing to give any prospective customers a reference if that would be of interest

Mr D

I am absolutely thrilled with the finished result. You were straightforward to deal with and visiting your site was appreciated. You gave clear statements regarding specification and developed the product to meet our needs. Installation was at the agreed time and there was reassuring and prompt follow-up as the new design needed refining. The product recommends itself… I’m recommending you… and I would certainly buy again

We have been extremely happy with our installation. The doors have made a huge difference to the view from our kitchen into the garden. It is a quality product. After 7 years one of our doors developed a fault. I claimed under the guarantee. The matter was dealt with quickly & efficiently. The replacement door was fitted with the minimum of fuss by the team of fitters. Great job. Thank

Glass Curtains have caused a talking point up and down the village but nobody has knocked on the door yet. We are very pleased with them and thank your teams for their timing and workmanship

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 panels, providing a panoramic view looking out onto the garden. During warm summer days it was (and still is) such

frameless glass doors invited me to their workshop to view the glass curtains for myself, and to show me how they were made. Installation was clean and tidy. When they say they are going to turn up, they do, and are always on time.The product looks great. It really does make the refurb seem complete, and finishes off the room nicely, and I have already recommeded FGD to my friends.

 We were delighted with the service and standards from Frameless Glass Curtains – everyone at the Company responded really well and work was done on time with minimum of fuss. Workers were polite, did a great job and left everything clean afterwards – and the windows look amazing! We would certainly recommend Frameless Glass Curtains   Keith and Tina,  Sussex May 2016

We would like to say how pleased we are with our fabulous new FGC doors and conservatory.  We thought the transformation would be great, but it’s only once they’re in that we’ve been able to see the full glory of the design – and our view!  We’ve had all the making-good done now, taken off all the plastic film and the result is we have beautiful, draught-proof doors and a lovely, contemporary conservatory. And we’d
