French doors originated in the 17th century and today’s equivalents are used for very much the same reasons. Typified by door panels opening in or outwards within one door frame, they offer classic design & symmetry and lift the appearance, light and accessibility of any home. Modern-day double-glazed French doors have taken forward these traditions and provide a practical and beautiful addition to any façade.
