French doors are generally two identical doors that are side-by-side and in most cases, open outwards. This creates a spacious opening into the garden. Smaller homes or properties with small gardens can benefit from this style of door as they assist in expanding the space. There are three types of French door, and these are external (French patio doors), interior and sliding.
French doors inherited the name from their origins in France in the 17th Century. Art and architecture were concepts that were developing, growing and changing. The French door, initially, was not a door and began as a large window. These windows were then styled so that they could open and a person could step onto a balcony.
Security is always a concern for people and with correctly installed, modern French doors, there is no need to worry. When using Woodland Joinery, we ensure that your French doors are built with the highest quality and that the glazing and locks are also secure. All of our bespoke doors are supplied with a secure multi-point locking system as standard. The toughened, double glazing glass and thick, premium timber also assists in making sure nobody breaks into your home. Always ensure that your French doors are locked when you are not around.
Although both door styles have benefits, deciding on your choice depends on your needs and preferences. French doors are good at retaining heat and keeping the cold out. The glass in these designs is better for insulation as there is less surface area, with energy efficient double glazing. Wooden French doors are traditionally more expensive than sliding glass doors, but this depends on variable factors such as model, security measures, insulation, and installation. Frame type is also an important factor, with French doors being suitable for older properties or for homes with a more traditional decor and space to play with.
French doors can create an artistic look in your home, which in turn could raise the value of your property. The versatility of this design means that we can create something to suit your needs and that will work well with your home. There are many different styles of French door to choose from, such as an old-style farmhouse look or a new luxury estate home vision. The wooden frame of the door gives your home a vintage, traditional styling. However, when painted with a solid colour, a more modern look is created. The frame may be sandblasted and polished to show off the wooden grain.
The best security option for your French door is a ESPAG multipoint locking system on the lead door and an internal shoot bolt system on the other door. This type of lock secures both doors together. For optimal security, we fit all of our doors with anti-snap and anti-drill three kite-marked euro cylinders. With this addition, it would take an intruder an average of 10x longer to bypass than a standard euro cylinder. Our euro cylinders, assembled in the Uk, have external key entry facing and a thumb turn on the inside for convenience purposes. For multiple door orders, we ensure all your doors work off the same master key.
