Elegant French doors provide wide access
An elegant, modern French door is ideal for providing wide access to a garden, balcony or patio. They are incredibly flexible and can swing in or out, be opened independently, or the entire width of the doorframe. When you choose double glazed French doors you’ll find they are particularly energy efficient and provide great insulation.
Single and double glazed French doors
CT Timber Joinery are highly experienced French door manufacturers. We generally produce hinged door frames in pairs or multiples of two so 2, 4 or 6 panel wooden French door options are available. They can be supplied in a choice of timbers with single or double glazing and will be supplied pre-primed.
Commercial French doors
For commercial projects we can quote off-plan and attend site visits to conduct a measure. We can also instruct your team on what to expect and the best way to accommodate the doors in your build space.

Your joinery will need to be installed by a qualified builder. If you need help installing your joinery, our experienced Project Managers may be able to recommend someone suitable. Your glazing can be measured, manufactured and installed by our factory glazer once the joinery is installed, please read our glazing options below.
As a rule, CT Timber Joinery pre-primes all timber joinery before it leaves the factory, unless you have requested a clear finish for wood you plan to stain or protect otherwise. We do this to protect the wood from moisture ingress during the period between supply and installation. Pre-priming simplifies your painting process as our doors and windows won’t require an undercoat but will require a minimum of 2 top coats of paint.
After ensuring the wood is completely dry and free from dust and dirt, we apply the timber primer – a modified alkyd based pigmented sealer designed specifically for wooden joinery. It’s formulated for excellent adhesion and coverage and will provide you with the best possible surface for your top coating needs. For additional short term moisture protection, we also apply an ACE 121 timber preservative to all wood end grains.
We are joiners. We specialise in the manufacture of timber windows and doors, many of which will require glazing. At our highly sophisticated Auckland manufacturing plant we have an independent glazer on site who can measure and install your glass. If you would like a quote for glazing please ensure you request this when briefing us.
Due to the weight of most finished products, our glazer normally measures the glass once the custom joinery is made. He then installs it after your builder has fitted the wooden frames. You do of course have the option to work with your own glazer if you prefer.

- Single Glazing 6.38mm laminated
