The Big French Door is a metal multi-block door design. One door is 2 blocks wide and 3 blocks high.

Details

We designed the Big French Door and the Big Glass Door at the same time, but we couldn’t decide, which one to use, so we used both. Those doors are not an entity and have no opening animation. Like default doors, this door don’t block light.

Placement

The Big French Door can only be placed on full solid blocks and need as many blocks to the back, as to the side. Place this door like you would place a default door in Minecraft. More information to door placement: https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Door#Placement

Opening and Redstone component

By default, the Big French Door can be opened hand or Redstone.
If the door is in the block state “Redstone only” or “both“, it can be opened by a Redstone signal. For example, by placing a Redstone block next to one of the door blocks and placing a Redstone torch beneath it.
The door can be opened by hand, if it is in the block state “hand only” or “both“. If a door is in the block state “nothing“, it cannot be opened. The settings can be changed with the ManyIdeas core item “Redstone key”.
