French Doors are a wonderful asset to your home, they allow you to really open up you home and let in a fantastic amount of light. Here at Keymer, we have three different French Door styles; uPVC, Aluminium and Timber.
uPVC French Doors
Classic and stylish, uPVC French Doors provide a wonderful way to open up a room into the space outside. Through the addition of glazed and solid panels, we can help to create a design that is perfectly suited to the style of your home. It’s worth noting that with our French Doors there’s no need to bend down or reach for the sky when trying to open the second door; you can operate both sets of door locks (the master and the slave) by a pair of matching handles and one key will work both mechanisms. If you would like your doors to open out, it would be worth considering the addition of a restrictor, to prevent them being damaged when blown back by the wind.
For extra security on hinged doors we can add ‘hinge bolts’ that are fixed to the hinge side of the door and penetrate into the reinforcing when closed. In the unlikely event that an unwelcome visitor attacks the hinges rather than the locks, these devices prevent the door from being opened. This is particularly valuable on open-out doors as the hinges are on the outside.
We can also help you decide on the most suitable threshold. Depending on the site survey we may be able to fit a low uPVC threshold or perhaps a low aluminium profile (vital if wheelchair access is required to comply with building regulations.
