Swinging doors are the most common style of door. They feature hinged panels that swing open and closed. Swinging doors are available in single panels or multiple panels. The direction a door swings, either to the right or the left, is called the handing. In addition to handing, exterior doors are identified as either inswing or outswing depending on whether they open into the house or towards the outside.
Out-Swing French Doors open to the exterior of a home and maintain usable space on the inside of the door.
