Glass options vary by collection. The glass options shown with each door are the only available stock options. We can customize any door with any of the options below for an additional fee (if not standard for the collection). Cost for non-standard and custom glass options varies by collection and door size and must be quoted. The lead time will also be 14-16 weeks for any non-stock glass option. If you would like a non-standard or custom glass please request it in your quote.
All glass textures are produced using a tempered, double IG (insulated glass) unit to provide safety, security, and energy efficiency. Low-E glass (Low Emissivity Glass) glass better insulates your home by keeping heat from escaping during the cooler months and helps to minimize the heat entering your home during the warmer months.
Privacy ratings start at 1, and progress to 9. A privacy rating of 1 means the glass is as clear as possible. A 9-rated glass, however, with maximum obscurity does not mean you cannot see anything at all. It simply makes it difficult to see anything specific with clarity. A glass insert with a low privacy rating allows lots of light but little privacy; a glass insert with a high privacy rating is closer to being opaque.
Note: Door glass will have a safety-logo on each piece of glass in the door. Residential building codes requires tempered glass to contain an identifying label. It states that a label must be “acid-etched, sandblasted, ceramic-fired, laser-etched, embossed, or be of a type which, once applied, cannot be removed without being destroyed.” This will be on each piece of glass and cannot be removed.
