Outswing French Door Styles

Marvin Replacement Outswing French Doors look great when used to open up to a patio or deck from a living room, dining room, or a bedroom. The curved design of the handles add soft lines to a room and they can help bring in more natural light to unlighted areas of your home. Outswing French patio doors come in one, two, or three panel configurations.

French doors are easy to operate and don’t need routine cleaning of the sill, like sliding patio doors. They can create a tighter seal to prevent air leakage and can lock with keys.

Glass Coatings

Our experts will walk you through energy efficient glass options to find the right selection for your home and the best patio door for your space. Our insulating glass has an argon gas fill between the panes for energy efficiency. Choose from four glass coatings, plus decorative glass options, and specialty glass choices.

Specialty Glass

We offer specialty glass to best suit the needs of your home. You can choose tempered glass, laminated glass, and STC/OITC glass for specific doors and rooms.

Tempered Glass

Tempered glass increases glass strength to help prevent breakage.

Laminated Glass

Even more durable than tempered glass, laminated glass is often referred to as impact resistant or safety glass due to its vinyl inter layer that tends to remain in place when shattered. Patio doors often feature laminated glass.


Sound Transmission Class and Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class glass has increased pane thickness on the room side and works in areas where exterior noise is a concern.

Divided Lites

We offer various divided lite patterns so you can replicate the look of your original windows and doors—or add new architectural interest to your home. Choose from Simulated Divided Lites for classic appeal or Grilles-Between-the-Glass for easy cleaning. Outswing French Doors can have a Prairie pattern or a Standard pattern.
