A French door is a door (installed singularly or as one of a matching pair) consisting of a frame around one or more glass panels (called lights or lites) it is also called a French window as it resembles a door-height casement window. A pair of French doors does not generally include a central mullion (as do some casement window pairs), thus allowing a wider unobstructed opening. The frame typically requires a weather strip at floor level and where the doors meet to prevent water ingress. Bolts allow the head and foot of each door to be secured. The slender window joinery maximizes light into the room and minimizes the visual impact of the doorway joinery when considered externally. French doors traditionally have a moulded panel at the bottom of the door; however we can custom build to your heritage or contemporary requirements.
