uPVC French Doors
Easy Outdoor Living
French doors are an attractive alternative to sliding or folding patio doors and are ideally suited to more limited spaces. Our uPVC French doors can be built in both contemporary and traditional aesthetic styles with a wide range of custom glazing types, fittings, colours and sizes. Whether you want arched doors, glazing bars, different colours on each side or maximum security for a ground level door, we can custom craft a solution to fit your project. Moreover, with some of our advanced uPVC frames, you can still opt for doors with large glazed surfaces and reach Passive House values!
Why Choose uPVC French Doors

Moreover, modern uPVC French doors offer excellent value for money thanks to a host of innovative design and performance features. The advantages include:

U-values & Thermal Performance
With glass comprising most of the overall door surface, it is important to choose the appropriate glazing for your desired energy-efficiency needs. Standard frames like the IDEAL series will provide good performance for your average household and be a step up from older and domestic windows. The Energeto series is aimed at those aiming for excellent U-values and looking to maximise their energy savings. We offer both double and triple glazing options, various warm edge spacers and optional Argon gas filled spaces between panes. The distances between panes can also be changed to provide larger gaps capable of better insulation.
Finally, the frame itself still plays a major role in the overall values. That is why the Energeto series is designed with multiple internal chambers and carbon fibre reinforcement in place of steel, to avoid thermal bridging. Finally, internal chambers are filled with precision high pressure throughout the entire frame to further boost its insulating value and achieve even Passive House performance.
