Description of French Hinged Patio Doors
French hinged doors add a classic look of elegance and sophistication to any Southern California residence. French doors typically open outward, hinged from the door jams on each side. Doors can be ordered with a varying number of panels, depending on the design and look that's desired. Unlike French sliding doors, hinged doors require room to swing away from the wall.
Common ApplicationsFrench hinged doors can be used anywhere traditional patio doors are installed. However, French doors are often considered an upgrade used in master bedrooms, guest suites and living spaces. They work equally well for ground floor rooms and multi-story homes. And they are often used to separate rooms inside the home as well. French doors add elegance to any Southern California house.
Operation of French Hinged Patio Doors
Although French doors are less common, their operation is well understood. The two doors open in a swinging fashion away from the wall. French doors operate similarly to common external doors, but each door mirrors the other. When closed, the doors come together and are latched from one side. When open, French doors offer the greatest opening width and ventilation.
