Swinging Patio Doors

Available in inswing or outswing designs, our swinging patio doors are made to look like they are a custom part of your home. From traditional French doors to contemporary models, AVI Windows and Doors has a large selection of patio doors to suit your individual taste. Swinging patio doors, also known as hinged patio doors, generally have one or two door panels that either swing in or out to open and close. These popular doors styles are available with up to three panels for greater versatility. Doors that swing inwards are ideal for locations over steps and where rain could come inside when opened. Meanwhile, outswing patio doors really open up your outdoor space options without interrupting the design and flow of your interior space.

To create a simple look and maximize views of the outdoors, you may choose to have no grid at all on your swinging patio doors.

Simulated divided lite (SDL)
Simulated Divided Lite

Divided lites are patterns created by using decorative grilles on a swinging patio door. Along with hardware style and color options, simulated divided lite patterns with spacer bars can complement any room or design.

Authentic divided lite grid option
Authentic Divided Lite

Exclusively for wood exterior units, authentic divided lite grid options separate panes of glass that are glazed between bars. This is an authentic and traditional way of making patio doors.

Grilles Between the Glass

For a divided look that is affordable and low-maintenance, sliding patio door grilles can be permanently installed between glass panes. This allows for a smooth exterior and easy cleaning.

Swinging Patio Door Screens

Both inswing patio doors and outswing patio doors can have screens to allow you to let fresh air inside your home without inviting in insects or debris. Screens are available from an after-market provider.
