Origin French Doors are ideal for replacing old patio doors or as part of a new extension. Made of premium-grade insulated aluminium, matching the best-selling Origin bifold door, and better than PVCu residential doors with slimmer sizes and bigger glass areas. At Open Living, we work with many Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire properties, improving their security, appearance and energy efficiency. In this article, we explain more about aluminium french doors with or without sidelights.
The benefits of Origin French Doors in the home.
One of the best features of having a French door in the house is converting an existing window. Ground floor rooms such as a study, dining room or reception room are all ideal for removing the old window and fitting a French Door or set of French Doors with sidelights.
Not only do you gain a desirable access route out to your patio or garden, but other benefits too. Firstly is the improved light in the home. With doors being bigger than windows usually, you’ll notice a brighter room. Another benefit is improved security. Most windows above 800mm from finished floor level don’t need safety glass. Doors come with safety glass as standard. As a result, you’ll get a more secure glass compared to a window. You’ll also get enhanced security, thanks to the 8-point locking fitted as standard to Origin single and double doors.
Of course, adding an extra doorway is more functional, appealing and looks better than a smaller window. At Open Living we often work with our customers, enlarging their existing window openings, changing them for a doorway.
Aluminium French doors for slimmer lines and bigger door sizes.
Best of all, aluminium doors by design come at bigger sizes than PVCu doors. Therefore, where PVCu doors typically only go to about 900mm wide and 2200mm high, aluminium doors go up to 1100mmwide and up to 2700mm high. As a result aluminium doors give you reduced visible frames, no toplights and again, bigger glass sizes. The profile on aluminium doors is substantially thinner too.
French Doors with Feature Windows.
Origin French Doors with sidelights create impressive screens at the back of your house. If you have an existing old aluminium patio door in a timber frame, why not consider changing to aluminium? You’ll benefit from a more flexible opening, improved energy efficiency, better security and a coloured aluminium product if you want this too.
For your new extension or modifying an existing opening, Origin French Doors with sidelights are a great alternative. You can even add a gable or feature window above the doors. Once again you benefit from a better-looking feature window and more light coming into your home.
French doors for bedrooms and Juliet Balconies.
With Origin French doors opening inwards, why not think about creating a set of doors upstairs with a Juliet or glass balustrade? Not only do you enhance an upstairs room, but you also increase the ventilation over a conventional window.
Origin double doors with sidelights, matching bifolding doors.
One of the best features of an Origin French door with or without the sidelights is they match our best selling range of bifolding doors. The same door profiles, the same style of handles, and the colour matched gaskets.
For new extensions with more than one door set in the design, we think there is no better way to get matching doors throughout your home. This is also something many of our competitors don’t offer as they offer residential doors and bifolding doors often from two different brands.
Other great reasons to consider Origin French Doors in your home.
As well as a British-made product with a 20-year guarantee there is even more reason to consider an Origin door set in your home.
- Colour matched gaskets in seven different colours, looking better than black gaskets on most other products on the market.
- Premium Hafi hardware – again this gives matching luxury stainless steel handles to your bifolding doors as well as a utility room and dining room French Doors.
- The fastest lead times in the UK – no other product helps you complete your extension as fast as an Origin door, thanks to revolutionary manufacturing and unbeatable lead times.
- The choice of optional midrails, solid panels, pet flaps and over 150 colours to choose from.
Even better is the complete range of Origin aluminium windows, Front Doors, and even garage doors.
