Primed Stile and Rail Glass Options

Adding glass in place of the panels in stile and rail doors creates a French door and allows light to flow through the home. French doors can accompany any home design and utilize either clear, privacy, or decorative glass.


Glass Privacy

Each glass type has its own level of privacy and this can be a big decision maker when choosing a door. This video gives a better understanding of how private each glass type is.
 

Design Options

Sometimes instead of one big piece of glass, a door with a divided look fits better in a home’s design. The primed stile and rail doors use true divided lite construction and 1-1/4″ bars to create this look.

As a note, when divided lite doors are not as wide, the number of lites or glass panes in the door go down. For example, a 10 lite door that is 1’6″ wide will only have 5 lites or pieces of glass. Shown below is a 3/0 PR8010 and a 1/6 PR8010 to showcase the difference.


Layout Options
