UK: French Doors: French Door Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT FRENCH DOORS
French Doors, also known as French Windows, are pairs of glazed external doors which provide a wide opening onto a patio or balcony. French Doors may be fully glazed, or may have solid panels in the lower part of each door. Traditional French Doors have several small panes separated by glazing bars. Modern French Doors have single sheets of glass. French Doors may be made of engineered timber with veneer finish, of solid timber, or of UPVC. French Doors have multi-point locking systems, and are fitted with Argon-filled double glazed units with Low-E glass to reduce solar gain. Leading UK suppliers of French doors are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
