As the name implies, French doors originated in France during the 16th century. Their purpose was to light interiors more efficiently by modifying solid doors with panes of glass called “lights”. In addition to allowing more light to filter in, these doors also helped maintain an even temperature throughout the year.

Today, French doors have kept the same original purposes, but have obviously been upgraded over time. Modern, impact-resistant French door systems provide protection from extreme weather, insulation from noise, temperature fluctuations and the fading effects of UV rays, and create a barrier against intruders.

Some of these upgrades have come along inherently, and some are to keep up with the forces of nature that we face in Florida. Florida Building Code-compliant French doors are built to withstand storm-force winds. At FAS we offer only the best in Custom French doors that will stand up to the weather and stand out from the crowd.

French doors provide: 

  • A way to “connect” the inside of your home with the outdoor patio, pool, garden, beach and balconies

  • A way to create functional space between adjoining rooms that may need to be partitioned off for privacy, noise elimination or air conditioning purposes

  • An alternative to traditional front entryway doors that does not pose a security risk because of impact-resistant glass panes and a three-point locking system

Impact Windows for French Doors

Much like hurricane impact windows designed for your home, the windowpanes placed in French doors are also designed to protect your home against extreme weather and intruders alike.

A variety of impact glass is available to further customize any of your impact-resistant French doors and offer as much privacy or transparency as you wish.

FAS Windows & Doors offers some of the safest, most reliable, yet aesthetically beautiful, 'weather safe' hurricane windows and doors – building code rated for the Southeast's storm-prone weather.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
