Information about FGC Doors

Frameless Glass Curtains Ltd Hall: 1 Stand: D55

Our unique double or triple glazed aluminium slide and fold doors really are – as their name implies – frameless, that’s to say that when closed, there are no vertical mullions between the individual panes to obscure the view. Instead, there is simply a grey PVC bubble gasket fixed to both edges of each door, which when compressed becomes almost invisible, delivering unbeatable weather-tightness, excellent rigidity and uniquely, giving you
‘A Better View of the World’
Our incredibly versatile doors have been installed in many homes, churches, cruise ships, Audi and Aston Martin dealerships and restaurants.
Our integral wheeled design enables you to open even the heaviest of doors with ease, you can see a video of how easily they operate here https://youtu.be/j9h8lY83NMo
You can open or part-open our frameless doors to any combination. They can be inward or outward opening and stack to the left or right-hand side.
It is also reassuring to know that every FGC installation is tailor-made by hand in the UK to your exact requirements and that for complete peace of mind, the quality of materials and workmanship is backed by a guarantee.
Security is assured by a single internally accessed lock fitted as standard, but keyed access from outside can be provided if required. Once the main access door is unlocked, it can be opened from both sides using the glass handles. The system is very secure and cannot be
‘bumped’ open and has passed an enhanced security test called PAS24:2012 so on a par with
“Secured by design”
Technical specs
• On our doubled-glazed exterior doors we use a pane of 4mm or 6mm toughened clear glass and a pane of Planitherm 1, this coating allows the heat of the sun to pass through it while simultaneously reflecting the heat back into the room, a process known as passive solar gain, with our Unique Patented 20mm toughened glass spacers between the inner and outer pane and together with Argon gas, this
produces a centre pane ‘U’ value of 1.0 W/m2K and overall U value of 1.4 for our double-glazed doors, our Triple Glazed produces a centre ‘U’ value of 0.6 W/m2K and overall U value of 1.0. Our doors deliver an outstanding thermal performance, and the toughened glass ensures complete safety in use. This can generate greater
internal comfort and lower energy bills. Full technical specifications may be found on our website www.fgc.co.uk
• When stacked, each door is a super-slim 45mm wide compared with 90mm in most other systems
• Head deflection of 12mm is incorporated in the design, all the weight is carried at the bottom of our frameless doors, even the largest installation does not require extra reinforcement
• Each double-glazed door can be up to 3 meters high and up to 1.3 meters wide, there are no limitations on overall width. For example, we have installed our
frameless glass curtains at Manchester United’s training ground which are 2.9m high
and 12m wide
