Tilt-And-Turn French Doors
French doors equipped with tilt-and-turn technology are uniquely designed to allow super ventilation, wide openings and easy access to the outside, while maintaining security.
The tilt function, opening the door at the top, allows for top ventilation, easily enabling stale air to quickly escape through the top portion of the door. The tilt position also functions as a safety precaution. You can ventilate your home without the danger of small children climbing through the opening, while simultaneously preventing intruders from entering. There is simply no way to climb through the small gap. Additionally, the hinges and mechanism further secure the door from being forced/pulled open from the exterior.
The turn door function allows the doors to swing on hinges, much like a regular door would. Each door features a large glazed surface which provides a lot of natural light, while allowing easy access to the exterior. With both doors open and no fixed post in the centre, French doors open fully, using all of the available space and offering oversized access to your home. The large uninterrupted space makes them incredibly functional and ideal for easy access, high traffic areas, entertaining, and even for moving oversized furniture.
All of these functions are controlled by a single handle, which makes them quite simple to operate. If you turn the handle in one direction, it will activate the tilting action. If you turn the handle in another direction, it prevents the tilt function and allows the moving section only to open and close like a regular door.
This dual option offers the best of both world and enables the user to control their environment with precision.
FRENCH DOORS V.S. OTHER PATIO DOOR TYPES
The size of the installation area available plays a large role in determining which door type works best in your space. French doors are ideal for medium spaces that are bigger than a single entry door but perhaps too small for sliding doors to make sense. They can also feature sidelights and transom windows above, offering abundant light and a great deal of flexibility for fitting any location.
With a simple turn of the handle, each of the two doors swing open immediately creating a large open area, and importantly, using all of the available space. In contrast, typical sliding doors leave half of the overall space closed. Bi-fold doors also open to 100% of the available space but are suited for larger wall openings.
