Frequently Asked Questions
French doors can bring light and character to any home. Read on to find out how to choose the right doors for your home and lifestyle.
What are French doors?
French doors date back to the French Renaissance and were initially installed to open onto balconies. As the style grew in popularity, designs evolved to include almost any double door set. French doors can be designed to open inwards or out, use wooden frames and glass panels to provide unobstructed views into yards, patios or adjoining rooms.

How do I choose the right French door design for my home?
Internal or exterior French doors can complement your home’s architectural style and bring more light to your home. Choose a design that gives the greatest access between rooms or to an outdoor space. Consider the placement of furniture and walls when choosing a design.
Are French doors draughty?
French doors designed Timbertherm are manufactured to be fully weatherproof when closed. We incorporate the latest gasket technology and hang doors on fully adjustable hinges to increase thermal efficiencies and secure your home against draughts.
What’s the difference between patio and French doors?
French doors have a long history and are typically double door sets that incorporate single or multiple glass panels, which open inward or outward. Patio doors have evolved to include any type of glass door – hinged or sliding – that opens onto a patio or paved area. French doors can be used to link internal spaces as well as indoor/outdoor areas.
Are French doors secure?
Timbertherm’s French door designs come with five-point espagnolette locking systems as standard. Our designs include cover splines for the gap where doors meet – typically the weakest point on French doors. Lock barrels can include anti-bump cylinders for increased security. All of Timbertherm’s French doors are manufactured to Secure by Design standards.
