Discover more about the different options Pella offers. Customization, energy efficiency and style—it’s all here.
French patio doors open all the way for an unobstructed view of the outdoors. This double-door style can make your room feel brighter and more spacious. It welcomes in ample natural light.
You can determine how wide to open them—just barely or fully—to let in fresh breezes during the summer. Wide panes of glass hold on to 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 clearance to fully open—specifically for doors that open inward.
They can open more completely than a single-panel sliding door. A sliding door can only open to one side. It’s also limited by its frame.
