Sliding French Doors
Elegance Matched with Space-Saving Convenience
Create a beautiful entryway both inside and outside with a pair of sliding French doors. Alternatively, add a new flexibility and dimension to your home with a set of interior doors. Patios and balconies benefit in particular from sliding French doors since space can be limited or restricted due to furniture. With patio doors that slide to the side, you maintain the classic appearance of inswing or outswing versions with a whole new flexibility. Enjoy better views and more light with a bespoke solution, made to measure in Germany.
Types of French Doors
In essence, a French door is a large window frame around a series of glass panels divided by glazing bars, also known as muntins or divided lites. They may consist of a single or double leaf and most frequently swing inwards or outwards. In French and Italian, these are known as "door-windows" and in German as "balcony windows." Yet, their use is not limited to only balconies. They are used just as often as patio doors to connect interior rooms such as the kitchen or living room with the garden or patio.
The advantages of such doors include:
- Can be installed in smaller openings
- Offer tilt and turn functionality
- A better view and more light
- More ventilation
- Optional glazing bars to match historical styles (e.g. Georgian)
French doors are ideal for medium spaces that are bigger than a single entry door. This applies to both interior and exterior walls. They can also feature upper transom windows for more natural light and openness.
