What is the difference between a French door and a patio door?

French doors are hinged doors that generally open outwards to the patio or garden, whereas patio doors can be sliding doors or bi-fold doors. French doors of course, can also be internal doors inside your home, leading from one area to another.

Whether you choose a folding or sliding patio door or a hinged French door will depend on your requirements of space and aesthetics. French doors that open outwards will open to the width of both leaves, typically 900mm each. French doors can also have sidelights (additional windows panels either side of the opening section) to fill the wall opening. These are a very elegant look, with lots of light entering the room combined with beautiful doors that can be customized with panes. These panes can be single glazed or double glazed with toughened glass for safety. We also fit restrictors so that the doors don’t blow open and closed in windy weather.

Are French doors secure?

Using toughened glass and a three point locking system renders French doors very secure. We also ensure that top quality hinges are used to ensure for a good finish.

How much do French doors cost?

When deciding to replace or insert a French door there are a number of elements to choose from – timber or another material, glazing panes, sidelights, width of the leaves, paint colours. At Timeless Sash Windows we make each product to order. A specialist will come to your property and take measurements and discuss the best options for you. This survey is completely free of charge and will give you a quote for the job.
