French doors are a patio door classic that you’ll find in many homes across the UK. Offering easy access to the back garden and a great way to ventilate you home on warmer days, aluminium French doors from SILKA perfectly blend style with performance.
A classic door design with a modern twist, French doors have been reinvented with SILKA. Using the traditional French patio door opening style, combined with Thermafill® aluminium frames and triple glazing as standard, we’ve given French doors a little extra ‘je ne sais quoi’.
Aluminium is a high-strength material and a perfect light-weight alternative to PVCu and timber. It helps us to craft doors that have slimmer sightlines for maximising glass areas for more natural light into the room. It’s also low-maintenance and infinitely recyclable.
Thermal performance is at the heart of our futureproof glazing system and our unique Thermafill® technology helps us to deliver some of the lowest U-Values on the market. It uses additional insulation within the chambers of the aluminium profile, for a unique, edge-to-edge thermal break.
U-values measure the thermal conductivity of a building material – it’s the industry standard measure of energy efficiency. SILKA French doors are designed with energy efficiency at the core and offer a high level of thermal performance with U-valued down to as low as 0.8 W/m2K.
In addition to helping the home run efficiently, SILKA products keep them safe, too. Our aluminium French doors come fitted with a PAS 24 accredited, high-security Siegenia locking system – helping us deliver a top standard of security that keeps the home safe and gives homeowners that added peace of mind.
Great design is at the heart of the SILKA range the exclusive SILKtouch coating features across all of our aluminium door and window products. It means that SILKA French doors feel just as good as they look! The sputter coat technology develops a fine textured surface finish on the aluminium frames that stays looking cleaner for longer.
SILKA French Doors are triple glazed as standard, because we believe it’s the best way to futureproof your home. The glass covers the largest surface are of your new aluminium French door, so it’s important to ensure that is as energy efficient as possible.
All SILKA aluminium doors and windows are available in True Black and Anthracite Grey as standard. There’s the option to have White internally, if that’s a better match for your internal decor. Any other RAL colour is also available, but this may take longer to manufacture so please factor this into your schedule.
The French are known for their style, and it’s no different with SILKA French Doors. We’ve created an aluminium door that features a clean, square-edge beading detail for a lovely architectural finish.
French aluminium doors can be manufactured in bespoke sizes for a perfect fit in your home design. Toplight and sidelight panels are also available for wider openings with fixed panes of glass. They’re also perfect for balconies and Juliet windows, if you’re lucky enough to have them in your new home design!
No style is complete without the right accessories! Choose from a range of handles and furniture in stunning colours and finishes to perfectly match the SILKtouch aluminium door frames.
Some homeowners just need a French door for the rear of their property, others pair one with a wide-span slider on their extension, to create multiple ways out to the garden – see the possibilities in our SILKA portfolio.
