French Windows and French Doors

French windows - casement windows with one or more sashes. Typically they refer to big windows that can also serve as doors.

Fenesta is ideally suited to make French windows. The strength of Fenesta enables it to make large sized windows that can stretch from floor to ceiling or cover the entire span of balconies. This ensures that users get excellent view of the outside without getting any noise in.

French windows and doors also give maximum sunlight and ventilation since there are two sashes instead of one. When open, they give an enhanced feeling of openness.

As with all of our products, French doors are complete with all hardware and paint. This really makes a French door stand out in any home.

French doors are custom-sized and can fit any opening. Though they typically lead to the exterior of the home into a balcony, we also offer them for bedroom doors often.

French windows with Flying mullion
Fenesta offers a one of its kind option of flying mullions for french windows in Series 1500. The "flying" mullion is a special hardware feature that allows the mullion (vertical fixed portion in window frame between the two sashes) top open along with the sashes.
