Do people in English speaking countries ever use "door leaves"? "There were some pictures on the door leaves".

This phrase doesn't mean anything to me. Could you give a bit more context?

I mean the doors which consist of two parts. How do you call those parts?

I just found different names for this kind of doors and I don't know what to choose and how to call their parts.

I think we just call them "double doors."

"Louvre doors" doesn't refer to the doors at the Louvre but doors made of rows of horizontal wooden slats.

"Double doors" was the only thing that came to my mind. These are louvre doors.

I know, it just looks like a pun - louvre doors.
