Authentic French Doors
Our individually-made timber French doors are designed to suit any period home layout or a traditional newbuild. Opening in or out, multiple colour pallette to suit interior or exterior decor, bespoke design period panels – these are just some of bespoke variations you can introduce.

18mm Slimline glazing bars or antique lead lights in a range of sizes & types are added as required to match the adjacent windows.
Our handcrafted range does not only look stunning – it exceeds the benefits that plastic windows can offer, delivering exceptional thermal, security and acoustic performance.
Despite the traditional appearance, they are quite sophisticated. Hidden away is the state-of-the-art technology: warp resistant timber, unique concealed hinges, high security locks, drainange channels and many more innovations.
Superior glazing units which are almost twice more energy efficient than ordinary double glazing coupled with very low maintenance ensure that your new windows will be nothing but enjoyment for years to come.
Our Unique Features
3D Hinge System– unlike conventional butt hinges, the 3D hinge is a heavy duty adjustable door hinge developed for long life performance. Featuring low friction bearings for smooth door opening, it offers reliable maintenance free operation. It is fully adjustable in 3 directions and the patented design allows the hinge to remain fixed to the door during adjustment.
Conceal™ Trickle Vent system – although a necessity for the extension or a newbuild, conventional trickle vents can be, frankly speaking, very unsightly. Protruding canopies and head-drips can seriously affect the external look of any property. Now with the arrival of Conceal™ Vent, the unattractive, unpleasant trickle vents can be a thing of the past. Our innovative Trickle Vent system has the air channel re-engineered to appear between the frame and the casement, thus allowing the windows not to have any external canopies and protect the all-important character of any period property.
Unique external sills – over the years we have developed a range of unique external sills, which not only enhance the look of the property in keeping with its period, but also provide the necessary protection against the elements. Various sill types are available including Stub Sills, Sloping, Chunky and bespoke. Matching period sash drips are available in same design and style to replicate the period look.
Multi-layered Engineered timber construction for casement and even the frames reduces warping, swelling and twisting.
