Our FGC sliding doors were installed in May 2018.
What our customers say
We used FGC to manufacture and install frameless glass doors on all three sides of a large terrace bay. The design was complex and required a flexible and innovative approach to their existing designs. The result was outstanding – clear uninterrupted views over the countryside and a flexible opening pattern which allows fresh air no… matter the weather. FGC worked well with the architects and builders on this major project and have provided a responsive and flexible after-care service. But they still need to improve their handle design! Comment from FGC: Thank you for your review. Everything FGC supply is made is to measure and in-house which takes time. Our innovative product has changed since we first started 11 years ago and is always evolving, we are always looking for ways to improve our design. Read more “Three sided bay window”

These frameless glass walls have made a huge difference to our comfort at home. They are installed between our living rooms and conservatory. When open, they allow heat into the living area on a sunny day (reducing our heating bill) and when shut, they keep the cold and noise out. They are also much better… than bi-folds because there are no frames when shut and when open, the amount of space taken is minimal. Installation and service by all staff that we’ve been in contact with has been excellent. I would definitely recommend this company and their product to anyone. Read more “Perfect product”
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… be. The initial drawings and some of the subsequent ones had errors on that I needed to phone and change (e.g. the wrong colour number, incorrect measurements – numbers in the wrong order etc), and it made me apprehensive that the correct measurements were fully understood by all. Phone calls into Gary and Paul were really helpful, but I didn’t find the visit from Steve very helpful or his subsequent amendments. The pencil drawings that come out with the final quote were not clear, and with such an expense I think I would have felt more reassured with a clear technical drawing. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) Yes (bit delayed by traffic but called and updated us). Quick installation, good explanation of how they worked Were we clean and tidy? Yes very And finally are you pleased with our doors (would you Recommend us)? Really pleased, they look great and I would definitely recommend you for this product. 20160115 Read more “Really Pleased”
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 a joy to slide and park the panels to one side, bringing the garden into the kitchen dining area. We have a separate dining room in the house also, but haven’t in fact used it since the day your windows were installed! Nobody wants to leave the newly created bright space with a full view of the garden and changing seasons, now almost making the other living rooms redundant. Downside is that I now have to labour away and keep the garden trim, tidy and colourful every weekend! I must also take this opportunity to remark on the efficiency with which the panels were installed by two of your very pleasant and cheerful fitters, who arrived at exactly the appointed time on the agreed date as advised when we first ordered the panels. They worked diligently, ensuring the panels were up and running in the shortest possible time, all as per the agreed time schedule and budget, and left the place spotless on completion. I’m quite sure that the overall effect, backed up by our enthusiastic demonstations of how they work, will result in a few more additions to your order book! We certainly have no hesitation in recommending your system. 20150113 Read more “Mr W @ elm Park road London N3”
Thank you for your excellent after sales customer service it is exceptional.
The track coating was repaired to a very high standard by Dan the “Magic Man”, he is very professional and his work is very good, to the point that it is difficult to spot where the repair has been made.
Best… wishes to all at FGC for a successful future. Regards JS Read more “After Sales Customer Service Exceptional”
Your fitters were on time on site and I managed to speak with them before they started. They were very helpful and offered me a solution for a small problem we had regarding the level of the bottom track, I was impressed that we found the best solution and they agreed to proceed with the… work without any hesitation. Their tools were left in one corner so they are not on the way of anyone, even though none of my guys were working I the same area, and they left no rubbish lying around. I’m sure it was Adam I spoke to, and I can say that he is top notch guy, very friendly, polite and helpful. Overall I would say that the provided service was very professional and definitely I would recommend you to my clients. 20150218 Read more “Style Builders, South Croydon”
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… had explained where we lived prior to proceeding with the installation to check whether the company would be happy to fit in our area. The fitters were tired and somewhat grumpy when they arrived each time, but then went on to do a good job. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) There were delays prior to fitting, and then delays in arranging the corrections needed due to a technical error, but once dates were set they were kept. Were we clean and tidy? Yes inside the house. We had to clear metal shavings outside the house. And finally are you pleased with our doors (would you Recommend us)? We are pleased with the doors. They are stylish and provide flexibility in the home as we wished. We were hoping for better sound insulation, so if other enquirers need sound insulation within the home we would recommend they have double glazed internal frameless doors rather than the single glazing that we bought. We would recommend the company and the product. 20160926 Read more “Luff – Caernarfon”
As to how we were from initial contact (were we polite)? Initial contact was great! You may remember that we first visited one of your existing customers in Henley. I honestly can’t remember the ladies name but she was really helpful, was happy to invite us round the next evening and was clearly delighted… with the finished product. We subsequently (next weekend) arranged to come over to your manufacturing site and spent some time with Paul who explained in more detail how the product was conceived, how you manufactured, the options available and the process going forward. All really helpful, friendly and informative. We left knowing the whilst your product is roughly 2x the cost of “bog standard” bi-fold doors, in reality there is really no comparison. All the people we’ve shown so far have been blown away with the installation and at the moment they don’t look as good as they will with a finished floor and finished patio. Arranging installation (were we on time and on schedule) Installation was really simple – you and your team worked really well with my builder – Mike Nash @ BCS. We needed to delay the originally agreed upon date due to some extra worked required to install steels etc. Your team were able to flex the install date and work seamlessly with our builder to get the doors installed. Our builder commented how slick your team was installing the product. He’s so impressed I think it’s a feature he may well recommend to future clients working on similar projects. Were we clean and tidy? As clean and tidy as you can be on a proper building site!! And finally are you pleased with our doors (would you Recommend us)? We’re delighted. Obviously we’re not living with the door yet, but we’ve been over a few times and played opening and closing them. They look great in the building site location and we know they’ll look and work even better once we’re complete and decorated. I’m happy to update this section in April once we’ve been in for a while and happy to take some photos once we’re decorated and have the outside landscaping complete. I think they’ll look really special then! May I also ask if you would like to be on our list of completed installations? Yes, happy to be listed, need to wait until March before we can really show them. As we often get asked if we have anything people living locally can view If we can help show your product – we’ll do so willingly. We both work so will need a little scheduling but in principle – absolutely. We pay £50 each client and an extra £50 if they buy our product Great! I think the lady who acted as a reference site in Henley told us that you’d really looked after her in terms of after-sales service and this also sold us on the product and company. 20160115 Read more “No comparison!”
Installation of four double-glazed doors, internal to a large bay window arrangement, top floor flat. Initial contact was by email and a quote came back within a couple of days. More than can be said for some of the other companies we contacted about similar products. We visited the factory for a demonstration and were… also put in touch with a relatively local previous customer whom we went to see, to look at the product in the ‘real world’ so to speak and to discuss their experience with the company. This was a very positive visit and we decided to go ahead with ordering. After some negotiation on price (this is not a cheap product, but you get what you pay for!) the order was placed, a site survey was carried out, and we awaited a call for an installation date. This came much sooner than anticipated which was great. On the installation day, the three installers arrived on time at 08:00 and they were done by 16:00. It took twice as long as anticipated due to them having to drill out concrete to lay the track. There was not one grumble about this, they were all polite and friendly guys. Quite a lot of mess was made by the installation, mainly due to drilling into concrete, but the guys were careful to clean up after themselves as best they could. 20150218 Read more “MIKE LEVERS, Hove”
