What height should my french doors be?

Unless you are searching for a bespoke fitting, you will usually find that the height of your french door will be 2090mm. Here at ATT Fabrications, our french doors are a standard size of 2090mm/82 inches/6’8. 

What width should my french doors be?

The width of french doors is a variable that can change based on the size of your property. Here at ATT Fabrications, we have a selection of french door widths to cater to the needs of your property. Our doors start at a width of 1790mm and span up to 3590mm

You can choose a door width which is larger or smaller than these dimensions with our bespoke design your door service where you can create french doors which are suitable for your property. 

Design your own french door 

Take the stress out of the process and let us create a door which is perfect for you. Here at ATT Fabrications, we offer a service where you can design your own custom french doors in either aluminium or uPVC. You can choose a range of features including the style, glass type as well as other functionalities such as the open in/open out capabilities of your doors. 

With our design-your-own french door feature, you can choose your own width and height which is ideal for trickier spaces which need custom fixtures. When measuring for this, we need the actual frame size, so if measuring from the external brickwork, you should deduct 10mm from the height and width for an accurate measurement. 

How to measure your door frame

We know how exciting it can be choosing the design of your new french doors, but making sure that you have the right measurements before diving into the design is important. We don’t want you to experience the heartbreak of choosing your dream doors and realising it’s not available in your dimensions – so how do you measure for french doors? 

  1. Grab your tools – Don’t worry, you don’t need a wide range of tools. To measure the door frame for french doors, all you’ll need is a pen, paper and tape measure. 
  2. Take the width measurement – It may be helpful to have someone hold the other end of the tape measure to make sure that it is pulled tight and level as, if it is loose, your measurements may deviate from the true reading. 
  3. Take the height measurement – Depending on your height, you may need a ladder for this measurement as you will need to measure the full height of the frame. Make sure that you measure all the way to the subfloor as this will provide an accurate measurement. 
  4. Cater for brickwork – You need to consider the brickwork when measuring for patio doors, as brickwork levels vary, you should measure the brickwork and then deduct 10mm as this will allow for a fitting tolerance which will allow the doors to be packed, levelled and squared during fitting. 
  5. Measure again! – Make sure that your measurements are accurate by measuring the height and width again. To make sure that you cater towards inconsistencies, you should measure at multiple points across the width and height.  

Measuring up the area for your door is one of the first and most important steps in giving your home the upgrade that it deserves. Once you have these measurements, you can start the search for your new dream french doors.
