Sliding Glass porch in Essex

Frameless sliding glass porch in Essex

A new single glazed porch, fitted to a traditional property and by FGC and creating a new enclosed space with a welcoming entrance.

As with all our frameless products, expertly designed and made by us, this porch has the same slimline design and making the most out of glass and minimal aluminium profiles.

Designed as a two panel sliding door arrangement, the right hand leaf, slides to the left viewed from the outside. Beside is a top and bottom guide arrangement keeping the sliding panel securely in place. Better than other sliding door arrangements, ours make the most of the existing brickwork at the bottom without requiring an additional track.

As a result, this home now benefits from a closed-off frontage while retaining the same easy accessibility with no trip or step over. It’s ideal for family living, pushchairs, kid’s bikes or even wheelchair users. The door joins the side and top glazing with a smooth seal that is also discreet, adding to the overall frameless appearance of the new porch.

The entire porch comes fitted with 10mm clear toughened single glass. The minimal aluminium profiles come in a light brown powder-coated finish, matching the classic styling of the property generally as well as the original front door behind.

New Glass Porches – a new space with added functionality

This new sliding glass porch in Essex creates stylish looks at the front of the home with the benefit of improved usage. A new covered area creating protection, an extra barrier at the front of the home. At the same time, it allows the original door, very much a feature of the home to be visible aesthetically without the obstruction of thicker aluminium. Its seamless, elegant and works.

The door comes with quality components, ensuring a reliable and long service life. There’s a main lock for when the door needs securing. Using the door is easy thanks to a large and colour matched pull handle on both sides, fixed securely through the safety glass.

FGC installers arrived on time and completed the installation quickly and tidily.


We are absolutely delighted with our frameless glass doors. They have transformed our living area in terms of light and space, giving a contemporary feel. The whole process has been very efficient and the fitters who came to install the doors were excellent. I would definitely recommend!

A sincere thank you to your installation team

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
