A French door consists of a frame supporting one or more transparent and/or translucent panels (lites). A pair of French doors does not generally include a central mullion, thus allowing a wider unobstructed opening. The frame typically requires a weather strip at floor level and where the doors meet to prevent water ingress. An espagnolette bolt allows the head and foot of each door to be secured in one movement. The slender window joinery maximizes light though into the room and minimizes the visual impact of the doorway joinery.
