While installing your these doors as the entrance to your home, it may prove a little challenging in as far as hinges are concerned. Because these doors allow for installation such that they may swing either way, their hinges may be placed either on the inside or on the outside. In order to enhance the security that your French doors provide, you should consider placing your hinges such that they face inward. This way, a burglar will not be able to simply remove the outward facing hinge pins and gain entry into your home by easily removing your door.
To further enhance the security provided by your French doors, you may fit some security door locks as well. You will find that in most cases, the locks that come with these doors are insufficient in keeping out burglars. It is recommended that you install a deadbolt that's horizontal and at least one inch in length. You may want to go for a double deadbolt lock which is a little more secure than the single deadbolts.
Pocket exterior French doors: These are ideal to use in rooms which do not have a lot of space to accommodate the swinging open of the doors. Pocket French doors will slide into the walls on either side of the door. When used for the patio, these doors slide off to the side which enables you to save on space if your patio is small, or in the event that you don't have adequate space for them to open in to the patio as well.
