“French Door” is an accepted title for casement doors with leaves that can open inwards or outwards
Lift & Slide Doors
Lift and Slide Doors differentiate themselves from simple sliding doors by the fact that, when the handle is turned, the door leaf elevates and rolls on very efficient wheels and a small blade are incredibly smooth, especially in large sizes. Another advantage is that, at any place the user wants, they can turn the handle, lowering the door and blocking it the desired position. Lift and slide mechanisms have other advantages over traditional sliders: in particular, as the doors in the shut position are resting on the floor, they offer greater air and water tightness. You can have multiple sliding doors with fixed units, pocket units that disappear into a cavity into the wall, you can even have two corner units that meet without a post.

Bi-fold Doors are the best way to open up a whole wall if you do not want to pocket lift and slide. The doors open like accordions and fold away to the sides. You can have the same number of panels open either side, or you can choose to have a single panel act as a standard door, for quick use, and all the other panels open out when you want it.
Pivot doors are leaf doors that open inwards or outwards pivoting on a point along the bottom and top of the door, rather than on the side like regular French Doors. They are primarily used as Entry Doors.
Entry Doors can be solid or glazed and made of a variety of materials from solid wood to wrought iron. Usually single leaf “French Doors” but alternatives like pivot doors can be used.
