PVCu double doors are often referred to as French doors and have two hinged, opening sashes to provide a wide access generally from the rear of your home into the garden.
PVCu double doors are normally fully glazed to provide high levels of light and an excellent view out to the rear, where privacy is not so much of an issue as it is to the front of your home.
PVCu double doors can be manufactured so that they either open outwards into the garden or inwards into your home and care should be taken not to have them obstructed by furniture, or to cause an obstruction themselves.
On very wide openings, fixed side panels may be required to one or both sides of the double doors otherwise the doors may be larger than recommended manufacturing sizes or too wide to be practical.
It should be noted that even though both doors in a set of French doors will open, you would be normal only to use the main door most of time – the second door can only open once the first one has been opened.
Outward opening PVCu double doors should be fitted with restrictors on the tops of the door leafs which prevent the doors from opening more than 90 degrees, otherwise they may hit external brickwork and become damaged.
