Frequently Asked Questions
The short answer is yes, French doors can be screened. However, if a French door has a bulky screen attached, it will ruin the elegance of the doorway. Artilux can install both pleated and retractable screens that integrate seamlessly with your doorway and function with a smooth action.
French doors are a popular choice because they are both classic and versatile. Aside from their charming aesthetics, French doors can also maximise ventilation since they can be left completely open, or opened in the direction of the breeze.
Since they are designed to be left open for long periods of time, screening them is more essential than with other door types.
Contrary to belief, screening French doors isn’t difficult, but it is very apparent when they are screened cheaply, or with a style that doesn’t match the frame.
More than other door types, the door itself is as much of a visual statement as the view that it frames. That’s why fitting a discrete screen, without bulky cassette systems or tracks, is necessary to preserve the elegance of the door itself.
The Artilux range of screens are all designed to blend with the door frame, with minimal obstruction of the view.
Fortunately, Artilux offers a range of solutions to screen French doors that aren’t just based on size, but more importantly on how you choose to use them in your home.
For instance, do you open just one door at a time? Do your doors hinge inwards or outwards? Are they doors you only use for ventilation? You provide the answers and we’ll provide the solutions.
