The flush sash, with added panache – EUROCELL’S new French door from the Aspect range

a beautiful, spacious and bright sitting room in an expensive new home. Two settees with silk cushions are set either side of a coffee table. A modern fire place is alight whilst light is streaming into the room via the roof light and leaded glass patio doors.

Despite the growth in bi-fold door installations in recent years, the French door remains the most popular choice of ‘lifestyle door’ among homeowners, with over 200,000 expected to be fitted this year alone. By introducing this new take on a design that has changed little in the last 30 years, Eurocell are hoping to galvanise sales still further and give their installer base another great product to take to their customers.

The new door design uses the stylish profile, attractive chamfered glazing rebate and patented gasket cover trim of Eurocell’s Aspect bi-fold door system, and with no bulky, floating dummy mullion, there’s a truly uninterrupted view to be enjoyed from inside the house.

Outside is enhanced by the use of elegant butt hinges rather than the conspicuous exterior flag hinges dictated by a rebated door. This discreet, adjustable pencil hinge design preserves the smooth exterior lines of the frame and sash in keeping with today’s design trends. Plus, it offers the option of inward or outward opening to increase design flexibility where space is limited.
