What’s the difference between French doors and double doors?
French doors are typically a set of two doors that open outwards and close together in the middle of the frame. There is no divider between the two doors, and the hinges are located on the sides of each door. French doors always include glass.
Double doors come in a variety of styles and shapes but are often solid wood with smaller glass elements. With double doors, the opening mechanism and overall design can vary, and the size of the doors is typically larger than the average French doors.
Are French doors energy efficient?
The answer varies depending on the materials used to make the doors. Better quality hardwoods have better insulation properties than softwoods, improving the efficiency of the doors. However, the glass is usually the largest determining factor of the energy rating for any door. For optimal efficiency, French doors can be made with low-e glass.
