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 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.

We had been looking for ages for the solution to fill two large spaces leading from the house to our new Orangery. From the moment Gary showed us the product at Partridge Farm we knew it was just what we wanted. A year later and we are still delighted. We broke one of the glass

Looks fantastic!

I am really impressed with the finished product and service e provided by FGC.
I had an image in my mind of how I wanted the end result to look. The “invisible” glassing was the most difficult and important part to source.
FGC came through with flying colours, right from the initial contact,
