Traditional French doors

Our traditional timber French casement doors offer an amazing addition to your home or conservatory. French doors are generally two separate doors which open outwards, but as ours are bespoke, you can decide if you want one or two, which door you want to open first, and whether they open inwards or outwards. 

While they are usually found in older properties are the more traditional option, our French doors are available in a range of different finishes and designs to suit your personal requirements.  

We can offer a bespoke product giving you the flexibility of varied opening sizes to give a practical entry into your outside space. So, whether you decide to have full height glass or one of our range of bonded bar variations, these doors can become a feature of your property.
