doors with adjustable height of bottom panel and lites that can be set

Recommended Posts

Are there any  doors available where you can design the height of the panel at the bottom and the add lites to the glass like you can a window?.  I have to make this door have 6 lites but it won't allow the lite adjustments.

No doors are not quite as easy as windows.  Here is a short tutorial I wrote a while back that should help.

That is exactly what I was looking for!   thanks!  It does take too long to do the search.  It would help if there was a cheat sheet for Simpson or the other manufacturers where we could see which one we were looking for before we go to search.... like a laminated page with pictures of the various doors and their code names.  Maybe there is something on line or something the manufacturer can email me.  I will check.  Thanks again!!!

 

Edit:  I found this on their website.  It lets you narrow the doors down to whether interior or exterior, glass and how much glass (1/2 or 3/4) and then you get a 20 pages of doors.  This door was on page 3 numbered as 77506 Nantucket.

This is a great idea. I go to websites like Kohler, GE, etc to find a model number to search for what I need in the Chief Catalog.

Not perfect as the bottom part does not include a panel but this works for flexibility with the lites and dimensions around the glass.
