Let the light into your home with hinged patio doors. Hinged patio doors are similar to sliding doors, except that they swing in or out on hinges like other doors throughout your home. Hinged patio doors can give your home a classic style or a modern twist depending on the door you choose. Whether you are looking for the charm and strength of the designer patio door system or increased energy-efficiency and durability of Prestige Vinyl Patio Doors, we have the option that is right for you. Designer patio door systems work elegantly in any home. We can match your home’s style and needs with one of our doors. With customization options such as unequal door widths as well as other height and width size possibilities we can create the perfect door for you. Homeowners may be more familiar with other terms describing hinged patio doors such as garden doors and French doors.

Swinging patio doors are also called hinged patio doors. These 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 as butterfly wings.
French patio doors are very similar. The doors are hinged at the side jambs so that the door panels meet when closed. The latching mechanism is contained in an astragal (a component designed to help seal your doors against the weather) mounted to one of the doors. When French doors open, the entire area between the hinges is clear.
