What are French Patio Doors?
French patio doors are two doors side-by-side that swing open and close. They’re an elegant and sophisticated addition to any home. There are many different function and style options that you can use for your French doors that add your touch. While there are also sliding French patio doors, most swing open, called French hinged patio doors. These doors have many uses from patio doors to dividing doors between different rooms in the home. They’re great for letting sunshine into the home and expanding your hosting space during a party.
How Do French Patio Doors Work?
French patio doors work in several ways. There are French-hinged patio doors and French sliding patio doors. French-hinged patio doors operate in a swinging fashion. Two doors operate as most outdoor doors do, but they are mirrored. When they close, they swing together and latch from one side. When the doors are open, it offers the widest entry of any door style as well as the best ventilation.
French sliding doors work similarly but they don’t swing open. Instead, they act as a sliding glass door, and one of the door panes slides over the other to allow entering and exiting the space. French sliding doors don’t offer the ventilation and wide entry as the French hinged patio doors do, but when closed they offer a similar appearance.
