French patio doors swing open for an unimpeded view of the outdoors. This double-door style can make your room feel brighter and more spacious. It lets in plenty of natural light.
You can choose how wide to open them—just barely or completely—to wecome refreshing breezes during the summer. Large panes of glass catch the sun’s glow during the winter, helping keep your room comfortable.
French-style doors open inward or outward, depending on the model. They need more room to completely open—especially for doors that open inward.
