    What is a French door?

    This continental door style features a set of two glass door panels that allow light to flood into your home. Even when inside, you can enjoy admiring your garden with this elegant back door solution and have the feeling of being outside all year round. Both doors can be inward or outward opening to maximise the space in your home and garden. Originating in 17th century France, they were used to lead out onto balconies. Nowadays, they can become doors to your garden or even a conservatory.

    Aluminium French doors

    Evolving from the original French appearance, our aluminium French doors incorporate the traditional style with the modern beauty of aluminium frames. Aluminium features a smooth and elegant finish, ideal for any style of property! You can choose from over 150+ RAL colours and a range of decorative features to get your perfect design.

    Aluminium is a popular choice with homeowners, thanks to its sleek appearance. It offers a slimmer frame than other materials, meaning more natural light will enter your home. These thin sightlines will modernise any property, old or new! A naturally light material, it promises easy and functional door mechanisms.

    A significant benefit of opting for aluminium doors is their excellent strength, giving you the assurance that your home is protected from forced entry. Their advanced manufacturing also makes them intensely able to withstand even the toughest weather without succumbing to the natural elements.

    Add a bespoke style without compromising on home security

    French doors flawlessly blur the lines between your garden and home and can also be incorporated into a conservatory design. Most commonly placed at the rear of a property, this is a more vulnerable area for unwanted intruders as it's less visible. So, when choosing replacement French doors, it’s vital that you decide on those that meet strict manufacturing standards.

    As you can expect with an industry-leading double-glazing installer, like all of our doors, they are equipped with robust locking features as standard, including shoot bolts and keylocks. You can also add additional door hardware to further enhance their protection for greater peace of mind.
