Exploring the Beauty of Swing Doors

Swing doors that swing in or out create an elegant transition between interior and exterior spaces. They are popular with homeowners who appreciate the aesthetic of large panes of high-quality glass.

The rhythms of swing have even permeated modern music—listen to the bouncing hi-hats and thumping drum beat in tracks by Kerri Chandler and the Prodigy. Swing is also present in the jazz genre through artists such as Benny Goodman and Count Basie.

French-Style Swinging Doors

French doors open wide, welcoming the outdoors in and merging indoors with outdoor spaces. They also let in a lot of natural light, brightening interior rooms and providing unrivaled visibility. They can also channel breezes, boosting cross-ventilation during the summer.

With a classic, timeless design, they fit well with any home style. They’re available in a range of sizes and configurations, from a single door that opens inward to a double pair that swing out on both sides.

They’re easy to operate, but can invite in water if they’re opened in high winds. To protect them, they need to be regularly maintained to clean windows and tighten operating sash, replace weatherstripping, and ensure the frame is securely sealed. They’re also vulnerable to damage from furniture or other objects placed too close by. To prevent these issues, it’s best to keep patio or interior furniture away from the doors.

Aluminum swing doors require minimal maintenance and are resistant to fading, chipping, peeling, and corrosion. They also offer superior energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer between indoor and outdoor environments.

The direction a door opens may seem minor, but it is a critical aspect of the overall functionality. It is important to know which side the door hinges are on, as this will determine the type of hardware and access lock you need to order.
