Hinged Patio Doors

Fort Worth – Dallas – Arlington – All North Texas

Hinged Patio Doors, also called swinging patio doors, operate in much the same fashion as standard exterior doors. They are full view glass panels and often hang in pairs. The doors are center-hung, hinged on either side of a central mullion and open much like butterfly wings.  A second type of hinged patio door is the French door. French Doors are hinged at the side jambs so that the door panels meet when closed. The latching mechanism is contained in an astragal mounted to one of the doors. When French doors open, the entire area between the hinges is clear. Choose whichever Door Replacement option will best suit your Dallas / Fort Worth home.

While sliding doors look simple, space-saving and practical, Hinged Doors look more elegant, classic and beautiful, and will go great with any house that has no space issues.

A big advantage to a swinging patio door is that it seals better due to its design, and is, therefore, more energy-efficient. When heat needs to be retained inside the house during winter, or when the doors need to be secure when it’s raining outside, you can rely on the latch of the doors to stay secure and intact, trapping heat in or keeping the rain out. You can also install a multi-point lock mechanism for double doors, thus making them a more secure alternative to sliding doors.

The disadvantage of sliding doors is that you can never completely slide all of the door out of the way, whereas swinging doors might take up more space when they’re open, but they open up the entire doorway.

French doors have an aesthetic appeal that achieves an elegant, timeless look inside or outside your house. French doors open to the exterior of a home and maintain usable space on the inside of the door. For a multiple-pane look, you can choose from a variety of grid options available to create the look of individual lights.
