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.

As it happens, we are still sadly not in the house. We should be however at the end of February which will be great! I can however pretty much respond to the below as I have been able to test the doors. 1. Your performance was excellent from what has been reported by the builders.

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

As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Staff were polite and prompt in answering telephone questions. There were technical problems with our installation and staff were open and discussed options and were polite. The fitters were surprised at the distance they had to travel to reach us each time, although we
