Elegant double opening doors
What is a French Door?
French doors help link your home with the outside allowing you to enjoy your garden or view whilst retaining a more traditional look to your property. They give more access than normal doors, perfect for barbeques and entertaining, or when the children are running in and out the house on summer days.
Benefits of a French Door
The French door is a popular choice with homeowners as you get the maximum opening when both doors are open. Our French door has energy efficient glazing that retains radiator heat. Fully reinforced frames, internal beading, 10 point Yale locking system and double handles with shootbolts prevent forced entry.
French doors are available in a vast range of colours and finishes to compliment any home. Doors can be dual coloured to suit both the interior and exterior of your property.
UPVC frames which have been injected with colour at the extrusion stage to give a smooth coloured finish. Available in White only.
Available in six standard colours the windows are foiled on both sides or one side with a white interior, our woodgrain finishes are designed to mimic the grained texture and appearance of traditional timber. Available in Whitegrain, Rosewood, Irish Oak, Golden Oak, Anthracite Grey and Black.
Opening doors will have double handles available in white, gold, chrome, satin chrome & black. The master door is fitted with a 10 Point Yale Locking system and the slave door has a shootbolt mechanism. Flag hinges provide maximum adjustment for easy installation and maintenance.
Trickle vents have to be specified on new buildings or extensions but for replacement doors they are personal preference. Trickle vents help reduce condensation and allow constant airflow in the room.
Door restrictors can be provided to French doors to prevent the doors from blowing open and slamming against walls.
Low Aluminium thresholds reduce scuffs on the bottom of the door frame and create a flush appearance reducing the risk of tripping when entering or exiting the door.
All doors are double glazed with A Rated glass as standard.
The glass is made up of:
– 4mm Saint Gobain Planitherm Toughened Total Plus Low E Internally
– 20mm Swiss Spacer & Argon Gas Filling
– 4mm Clear Toughened Externally
The astragal bar option is designed to give the effect of individual panes of glass by using a ‘back-to-back spacer’ inside the glass unit first of all splitting the single unit in to multiple squares without the need for individual units.
Once this grid layout has been included inside the glass unit and the unit fitted in to the window, we then fix a surface mounted PVCu bar to both external faces of the glass unit to give the full authentic appearance.
The Internal fretwork is another type of glazing bar used to give an authentic look to the sliding sash windows. This bar is located inside the glass unit and is used to give the window a similar appearance to the astragal bar but with much easier cleaning.
Natural 9mm lead can be applied to the inside and outside of the external pane in a grid layout suited to your window size and style. Available in square, diamond or queen anne lead designs.
Toughened glass is about 5 times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness.
Pilkington Toughened Glass is manufactured by subjecting the final glass size to a heating and cooling treatment.
A balance of high compressive stresses at the surface and tensile stresses in the centre of the glass increases its strength.
