343 French Door

Designed to effortlessly connect homeowners with the world outside, hardware in the aluminium Centor 343 French Door is concealed to remove visual distractions to the view beyond. 

Unlike Centor’s 303 French Door, the frame of our 343 French Door is similar to a standard French door frame, with 160mm or 130mm wide sill options available. 

  • Aluminium in a range of standard or custom RAL colours.
  • Engineered to last a lifetime – thermally-improved aluminium is painted after cutting and machining to ensure all surfaces are coated. 
  • Hidden hardware, including Access AutoLatch™, AutoLatch™ and concealed hinge.
  • Double or triple glazing available.
