Fly Screens For French Doors

French doors are a statement piece

The term ‘French doors’ and ‘French windows’ are generally used interchangeably. Both carry the same design, style and function with the only difference being how they are used – as a door, or as a window. Either way, they are a timeless design that adds character to your home. Their classic features are also the perfect frame for a spectacular view.

Screens for French doors have typically been quite clumsy looking and defeat the purpose of having stylish doors. Fortunately, Artilux offers a range of solutions to screen French doors that aren’t just based on size, but more importantly on how you use them in your home.

I actually saw Artilux from the signage on their van in the traffic. Once approached, their quote and service was second to none. Australian made product of the highest quality at a reasonable cost. Communication was easy and installation done at the time they specified. Really happy with our choice of product!!

Bianca, from administration side of things was very rude to us.It ruined a great experience with the actual product and the installer.There was radio silence for 3 weeks, after the deposit was paid, despite being told it will take 4 weeks.She hounded us in lead up to the install, BEFORE it was installed.And despite already having paid in full, on the spot after install, she continues to call and yell at us. Her inability to work out the payment on her side is no excuse to be rude, especially since we have paid in full, got the receipt and bank statement as proof.Awful customer service.Very disappointed, because we wanted to install more retractable blinds after using the product.

Great customer service. Jorge was willing to explain clearly the charge items on the quote and update the quote several times due to my changes in requirement. The installation was done on time as promised and the product quality was good. There was a minor installation issue but they fixed it promptly. Overall, Artilux is a great company to deal with.

We are so happy with our Artilux screens. Artilux had an excellent solution for the various glass sliding doors and windows in our apartment. We love that when we don't want to use the screens, they retract into a cassette and are not visible. The precision and quality is outstanding. We had another screen company come to quote and on inspection of our large sliding doors, they did not have a solution for us. Everyone from Artilux were friendly and thorough. This is an investment we will enjoy for many years to come.

I had the pleasure of dealing with Artilux for a post installation repair. Bianca at the office gave me on point information and made the appointment process very simple. They sent the most polite, professional and courteous person who very efficiently repaired the problem. It was very refreshing to deal with this team. Thank you!

Excellent service from start to finish. Good communication from admin through to installers. The product itself is excellent and looks fabulous. Installed quickly & efficiently with all mess cleaned up on completion. I've had no issues at all post installation, and if there were some I have no doubt they would be dealt with quickly.I highly recommend this company.

Great customer service, came and measured and quoted, then measured again on acceptance takes a few weeks to make, but well worth it once installed.

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.

The video below illustrates two ways to screen French Doors (basically with single and double screen solutions), both solutions can be approached with the range of retractable screens or pleated insect screens from Artilux.
