French Doors in Doncaster and Sheffield

At AWM Doors in Yorkshire, we manufacture all styles of uPVC French Doors. By far the most popular patio door design that we offer is the traditional uPVC French doors. Many new build estates in Sheffield have French doors installed from new, whereas most people in Sheffield will have to have them retro fitted which can involve additional building work costs.

French doors are also known as French windows; they are characterised by 2 single doors, both hung at opposite ends of the outer case frame. These doors lock into each other when the doors are locked with hook bolts and shoot bolts so that they cannot be prised open.

uPVC French Doors Information

French Door sets are typically used in Doncaster & Sheffield to exit the rear of a house onto a patio area or out into a  conservatory, as standard the doors will open outwards in order to not take up and space inside the house. However in conservatories the French doors inevitably do take up some of the internal space. This is why some people choose sliding patio doors rather than French windows, however sliding patio door systems are only able to provide a 50% opening.

Another alternative to a French door system is to install Bi Fold doors which are able to open as a single door and then fully retract when needed, this allows a full conservatory opening without taking up too much space.

uPVC French Doors | Size Parameters

The maximum practical size for a French door set with no side panels is 1800mm in width; any larger than this and the sashes will eventually drop due to the weight. French doors can be made wider by adding side lights (side panels) on both sides of the doors.
