Most continental homes have French doors integrated into them and there’s nothing to stop you from following in the footsteps of our continental friends. The large double opening of a French door opens up an exciting new world where you can move from home to garden, and vice versa, in the classiest of fashion.

Your patio and / or decked area will never have seen as much as action once they’ve been fitted, so instruct TWC, the best of door replacement companies, to fit out your home with a set.

UPVC French Doors

Separating your conventional living space from your conservatory or orangery is recommended if you wish to keep them as distinct spots. French doors are the best choice of barrier between the two. They will also prove invaluable on those occasions when you need to transfer furniture or any other items from one place to the other. If the French doors are situated between a conservatory and garden, you will feel any warmth created by the sun thanks to the energy efficient glazing used in our doors. To create a classic and elegant aesthetic we recommend adding French doors to a conservatory.

CREATE BEAUTIFUL OPENING TO YOUR GARDEN

There are no limitations when it comes to our French doors. Available in a host of styles and configurations with low and standard thresholds, they can open in or they can open out, and there’s the option of including side lights and ‘glazed-in’ panels and/or glass. If you want glass to be the dominant component in the design, ask for a fully glazed solution as we want you to get the sort of French flair in your door that you’d expect. Choose your colour based on the character and age of your property.

Time and time again, UPVC comes out on top...

UK householders continue to give UPVC the nod over most building materials and it can be put down to a number of factors – how inexpensive it is, how easy it is to maintain and how long it lasts. The standard of thermal efficiency it provides is also worth a mention as there’s no doubting that it can make a huge difference to the cost of energy bills.

More glass, less frame – aluminium’s biggest strength...

What you immediately notice when face-to-face with an aluminium French door is how slender the frames are and how overwhelmingly glazed it is. This is despite aluminium being one of earth’s most resilient materials – it doesn’t stop it being easily moulded into the sleekest of sightlines.

The contemporary appearance of aluminium and contours evident on the external side of the frame instantly give away the obvious use of aluminium. The crowning glory on any aluminium French door is the finish and it’s a powder-coated colour we utilise.

Aluminium French Door
We only do quality powder-coated aluminium finishes...

The exceptional finishes you see on our French doors can be put down to the 11-stage powder-coating process we stick to. This process is what gives the colour such depth and detail and makes it extremely pleasant to touch.

For our aluminium woodgrain finishes we use a separate process called sublimation and this leads to the development of our unmistakable Walnut, Rosewood and Oak finishes.

An elegant handle is a must…

Furnishing your French door is one of the most exciting parts of the entire process as you can choose a handle that fits with your personality.

Every door needs to be furnished and that includes choosing a handle before commissioning the final design. Our handles are full of personality. You may want to select your other pieces of hardware based on your handle so that everything clicks together.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FRENCH DOORS

Create a classically elegant entrance with our range of French doors. If you’re still not sure if this door style is right for you, our team are on hand to answer any questions you have and help you create your perfect glass doors. In the meantime, we’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions to help you get to know our French door range.

What is the difference between French doors and patio doors?

French doors and patio doors have a contrasting opening and arrangement.

Your stereotypical French door has two hinged panels that swing out when pushed open and collect together again as they’re closed. What elegance it possesses and it’s suitable for usage between two internal spaces or as a connecting door to an outdoor patio or garden.

Operating a patio door is done in a slightly different fashion, requiring a gentle push along a horizontal track to establish an opening, avoiding any transgression of indoor or outdoor space. Large glazed expanses are customarily housed in the panels, rewarding you with fabulously unrestricted views.

French doors complement traditional values and traditional aesthetics, offering a graceful double opening, and patio doors work via a sliding method, upholding whatever space there is around them.

How do I know if French doors are right for me?

TWC will evaluate the suitability of French doors in your property.

How you want your new feature door to look will adjudicate whether French doors are the right option or you’re better exploring alternatives.

They exhibit supreme beauty, a classic aesthetic, with a faultless symmetrical design and numerous glazed sections, sure to draw in admiration from enthusiasts of traditionalism and timelessness.

Spatial and operational needs will come into the equation. With a French door needing to swing open, sufficient external space is required to accommodate the design. Used most frequently for indoor-outdoor transitions, French doors generously bathe interiors with natural light not just whilst open but when closed too thanks to their prolonged glass panels.

If you decree French doors as your favoured form of feature door, trust TWC to fit them so they agree with your home arrangement and don’t pose a hindrance.
A deficiency of space or precedence for a sliding door will see us put forward a recommendation of sliding patio doors.

Where can I add French doors to my home?

Versatility is what enables French doors to occupy many locations.

In the majority of French door installations, they offer an entranceway and passage towards outdoor spaces, for seamless exchanges into the garden. Sometimes, it sees their integration into conservatories, but they’re also suitable for internal use to connect adjoining rooms, areas like living and dining areas so that you can create an open plan feel between them.

Another common destination for French doors is in home offices, massively growing in numbers throughout the UK as remote working becomes more welcomed by business owners. The light lured into an office location by a French door fosters productivity.

Bedrooms with balconies seem made for a French door – imagine starting the day by making your way out onto it through the bumper double opening – or have it act as a partition between a bedroom and neighbouring space.

Essentially, a French door will inject glamour and functionalism into whatever part of the house it inhabits.

Are French doors secure?

Our French doors certainly pass the secure test, featuring a robust frame and durable locking mechanism.

Home security isn’t to be taken for granted as ignorance of its importance can end up hurting you. We don’t want anyone to become the next victim of theft, constructing French doors with ingrained security, including a complex multi-point locking system. As the lock engages at various points, it significantly reduces the threat of forced entries. You’re also the beneficiary of top-level cylinder locks and solid handles when you purchase French doors through a Premium Retailer.

Security can to some degree pivot on the material chosen for French doors. Hardiness is vital and UPVC and aluminium both have the desired robustness, much to the disappointment of thieves.

French doors must be professionally installed in accordance with regulations (as they will be when the fitting is overseen by a TWC installer) for them to live up to their reputation of keeping occupants secure indoors.

How energy efficient are French doors?

UPVC and aluminium French doors surpass required energy efficiency levels.

Insulation is the key to an energy-efficient home and UPVC excels in reducing heat transference and energy loss and strengthening thermal efficiency. Its exclusion of draughts generates warmer living environments for inhabitants, all without an over dependence on a boiler system to warm home locations.

Aluminium shares UPVC’s energy efficient qualities and incorporates thermal break technology to uplift insulation.

Rely on UPVC and aluminium French doors to offer a dependable thermal barrier and seal against the weather outside so that you don’t go cold in your home nor face an extortionate fuel bill every month. Conserving energy is also a fillip for the environment and something that we must all be striving to accomplish.
