FrenchPorte Garage Doors

FrenchPorte Overhead Garage Doors, one of HGTV’s “100 Best Innovative Ideas,” are designed to look just like French doors. They were invented by a woman with a highly developed aesthetic sense: Jennifer Maher, a make-up artist with ABC News in Washington. “My personal philosophy,” says Maher, “is that nothing ever has to be unattractive.”

How does the FrenchPorte door open?

It rolls up in sections just like a regular garage door. You can’t see that there are sections because with their new, patented design, you can’t see the seams. Also, as an added safety feature, the door has been made pinch-proof so fingers don’t get caught.

Is a FrenchPorte door as sturdy as a regular garage door?

It may look fragile, but what makes it such a great door is that it is constructed of heavy duty polycarbonate and reinforced aluminum. The polycarbonate panes are unbreakable. The aluminum is light, strong, and requires no upkeep because of it’s powder-coated features

What about privacy?

Their standard polycarbonate panes are frosted for privacy. From inside, it’s beautiful. You have a stream of natural light coming in that makes the inside bright and keeps away mildew and mold. An added perk in winter is the door’s passive solar value.

Styles

FrenchPorte offers five styles of beautiful French garage doors; The Madeleine, The Kendra, The Jennifer, The Christina and the Print.
