Why choose French Doors?
Home Glaze French doors are a great way to create an easy transition to the garden. Opening outwards they enable you to fully utilise the space indoors whilst enabling maximum light and ventilation. They offer great versatility with the ability to lock one leaf closed or to open up both doors by securing them with cabin hooks to avoid them swinging shut in the wind.
Frequently asked questions:
At Home Glaze, we understand that choosing new French doors can be a daunting task. So to help you here are some frequently asked questions that you might find useful.
Do you need planning permission for French doors?
You do not need planning permission to install French doors, as they are covered under permitted development rights. However, it is always advisable to check with your local authority if you are unsure, if you live in a listed building or in a conservation area.
Do I need a lintel for French doors?
All window and door openings will have a lintel fitted above as the window or door frame will not be structural supporting.
Can French doors open both in and out?
It is possible to enable double French doors to open into a room by reversing the hinges. However, invariably this is less practical as the doors will require space to open into the room and may limit the options for the positioning of furniture.
What colours are French doors available in?
Home Glaze uPVC doors come in a range of 11 colours, including the popular Anthracite grey, Chartwell green and of course white. uPVC doors also have the option of woodgrain finishes to give a real wood finish but without maintenance. Plus, dual colours with white inside and a second shade on the exterior.
Are French doors secure?
French doors are just as secure as normal front doors as we use the same multi-point locking mechanisms as for our front doors. The glass used is toughened safety glass and so won’t shatter if someone tries to smash it, which is incredibly difficult to do.
