Sliding screens for outswing French doors
by Ron Riker
(Phoenixville, PA )
I have a client who really wants us to put sliding screen doors on their outswing French doors. This is a 6' unit with both doors operable. I know you say it would look weird, but I'm asking if it can be done. The frame to threshold measurement is 78 1/8", and the width, frame to frame, is 69 3/4'. If they can't have two screens in a bypass operation, one would be acceptable, and we would have to build out an astragal. Please let me know if this can be done.
