French doors

Timeless and always stylish, a well designed and constructed French door with sidelights (glazed panels to the side of the door) will always raise a smile with its old world charm and promise of what lies beyond.

Aluminium French doors

Our latest ranges in alumium have put a new spin on an old idea with sharp design, clean lines and loads of glass – a truly modern update which slots perfectly into the latest architect designed properties.

Partnered with Origin

Paxtons is a long standing partner of Origin, one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of aluminium windows and doors, and includes examples of their range in our Saffron Walden showroom. 

A classic reimagined

Our aluminium French doors offer a stylish new take on a classic doorset with the thermal performance, security and no-maintenance finishes of a modern door.

Huge specification

Our latest aluminium French doors are available with optional side and top windows, a choice of door handles, a standard range of finishes plus over 150 RAL colours, and benefit from industry leading guarantees.

UPVC French doors

Paxtons offer a wide range of upvc French doors produced to match our upvc window and entrance door ranges. Offered with the same options, customers can maintain a consistent style throughout.

Popular and stylish

The French door was the standard door used by housebuilders for decades and remains hugely popular today. The latest upvc ranges build on the original with increased security, better insulation and more options to make the door your own.

High specification

Benefitting from years of development and improvement, our latest upvc ranges are offered in a wide choice of colours and woodgrained finishes along with a range of hinges and handles to match or complement your selected finish.

Make it your own

The inclusion of sidelights and toplights (windows – opening and non-opening – to the side and above the main door) can all be specified along with Georgian bar to the window areas, and lead-style diamond detailing to the double glazed units, if required.

Timber French doors

Nothing says summer like a traditional timber French doorset opened on to a flower filled sun trap. Our timber ranges have the widest choice of options, allowing customers to create their own special place.

Versatile choice

French doors are most often used at the rear of a property but are perfect for every part of the home, including front doors and balcony access. The distinctive twin glazed door style looks fantastic and delivers loads of glorious light into the room within.

Design choices

The range of design, detailing and finishing options on a timber French doorset is far greater than aluminium or upvc doors. Because of this, timber is the natural choice for refurbishment projects, where there may be an existing style, and listed properies.

Make it modern

Old thinking would place a timber door or window in a period or listed home, but the range of design options, thermal performance and security features make it a good choice for high-specification new builds, small developments and remodelling projects.

Steel-look French doors

A rediscovered love of the steel-look door style has created opportunities for new specialist manufacturers committed to the look of the original but with the latest door specification.

Stylish steel-look

Paxtons were quick to recognise the rise in popularity of the steel-look, Critall-style, door and partnered with ALUCO, the UK’s leading specialist aluminium steel-look manufacturer, back in 2019. Our steel-look French doors are part of their ALUCO Steel Look Collection.

Distinctive design

The distinctive design of a steel-look door can be distilled to three elements which few manufacturers get right: the grid door style, the locking plate, and hinges. Beautifully designed, machined and assembled in the UK, the ALUCO range offers a stylish version of the original.

Lots of options

As shown here, the doorset works equally well as part of much larger entrance with toplights and sidelights, as it does a simple twin door opening. All configurations are possible and can be specified with opening window sections if required. Limited choice of colours available.
