French doors of aluminium are very long-lasting and also have an exclusive appearance. Their good thermal insulation also stands out positively. A coated surface improves the profile's weatherproof qualities.
All in all, the corrosion-free and weather-resistant components create a very high functionality and long-lasting effect. These external doors hardly need any maintenance and care – which saves a lot of time. Compared to a wooden French door, you do not have to re-treat or repaint the material.
This, in turn, offers the possibility of applying a new colour again and again on wood. The purchase costs of an aluminium French door are also higher than for other materials. Another disadvantage is that aluminium has very good thermal conductivity, which can lead to condensation and mould.
On the other hand, the thicker construction depth of these exterior French doors ensures the best possible stability, which makes them dimensionally stable and prevents them from warping. It is therefore important to weigh which advantages are particularly convincing with each material.
A material mix of uPVC and aluminium combines the positive properties of both materials and thus meets the highest demands. The energeto® 5000 view profile of uPVC also provides 16% more light in the interior with its slim design. Another reason for choosing this modern material combination.
French doors should always be well secured, especially if your balcony is out of sight of the neighbourhood. Otherwise, burglars will have an easy time because windows, front doors and other eternal doors are still among the most vulnerable points of buildings. In the case of very cheap and outdated doors, all that is often needed is a crowbar and a screwdriver, and the damage is done.
To get really well-secured French doors, we recommend highly effective features such as toughened or laminated safety glass, locks and fittings, ideally also an alarm system and roller shutters. Lockable window handles further increase the security of French doors. You will find all of the above elements on windows24.com.
