Class | Space | Affordable

French and single doors can commonly be found in homes across the UK and are used as a way to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living. As a beautiful and traditional alternative to sliding patio doors, French doors maximise space and provide a practical entry into your home. Single doors, meanwhile, create a stylish threshold to bring the outdoors, in. Whether you’re looking for French doors or single doors for external use, we at Essex Window and Door Centre can help. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today to discuss your requirements and for your quote.

What types of French and single doors are there?

French Doors

French doors are known to add quintessential charm to your home, whether for use internally or externally. French patio doors are external double glass doors that open outwards using a single-hinged opening. French doors work in the same way and are a great way of combining space-saving modern technology with traditional aesthetics.

uPVC French and Single Doors

The technical name for uPVC is unplasticized polyvinyl chloride which simply refers to the material used to frame double-glazed doors. Over the last few years, uPVC doors have become a popular choice for many homeowners as they are affordable, reliable and boost thermal efficiency. Furthermore, whether you’re looking for cheap uPVC doors or more expensive options, both are available in a wide selection of finishes. These include options for the appearance of wood, or minimalist, modern designs.

Aluminium French and Single Doors

Aluminium doors are quite simply made from aluminium – yet they boast so much more than that. As well as adding beautiful aesthetics to your home, external aluminium doors are available in a wide range of customisation options. This can include fully-glazed or part-glazed, custom RAL colours, high-profile multi-locking systems, a selection of configurations, and premium hardware. Aluminium doors have increased in popularity over the last few years and it’s no surprise given their many benefits.

What are the benefits of our doors?

Timeless Design

Our single and French both feature a timeless, classic design that has been around for many years. Both options come with a range of customisation options including:

  • Side panels.
  • Opening side sash panels.
  • Mid rails.
  • Half-glazed options.
  • Top lights.
  • Side panels and top lights.

Wood Alternative

The manufacture of single and French doors has come a long way and instead of timber we now offer a selection of aluminium or uPVC doors. Both options boast a huge number of benefits over wood including being waterproof, protected against corrosion, thermally efficient, minimal maintenance, greater levels of security and more.

High Performing

As mentioned, our doors are made from high-performance aluminium and uPVC which are both known to be incredibly high-performing. The materials we use in manufacturing and the process of installation mean that you will receive results that will make the most of your investment for years to come.


Our modern French and single doors are all double-glazed with toughened safety glass and boast great thermal efficiency and acoustic insulation. This means that you can enjoy significant cost savings on your energy bills as they were designed with heat and energy efficiency at the forefront. Additionally, this will reduce your carbon footprint!

Home Security

Our French and single doors are equipped with modern and robust multi-point locking systems as standard. Aluminium and uPVC doors are particularly effective at providing greater home security and are known to be impact resistant. This will provide you with the peace of mind that your home is protected.

How much does it cost to fit a new door in the UK?

Due to the variety of customisation options available including style, colour, glass and hardware, the price of internal doors or doors for external use can vary. We recommend contacting us for a quote.
