Easily recognisable with their double opening configuration French Doors offer a stylistic & classic look which can enhance your home or even your conservatory.
They can work well for entrances, balconies or small terraces on upper floors but for larger openings, possibly over 2 metres (6ft 6ins) you may need to use non opening side panels & top lights or maybe look at a patio door that suits big openings like Bifold or Multi-fold.
The opening style can be configured to either outwards or inwards enabling you to make best use of the space available, which can be very important when using them for a smaller room or a conservatory, because having them opening outwards will not compromise any of the interior space.
The classic design is to have the glazed panels with bars to create the look of many small panes, but you can select the installation to be clear of obstructions – an alternative to having many small panels is to have Georgian Bar inserts fitted within the gap of double glazed panes.
Attention should be given to personal safety in that the glass is likely to reach ground level and as such any glass below a certain height should be toughened or limited and meet British Standards.
