Understanding Simulated Divided Lites (SDL)
Simulated Divided Lites are an energy-efficient way to create the look of divided lites. SDL bars are adhered to both sides of the door glass to give a unique look while letting in natural light. We currently offer three different SDL styles that are guaranteed to boost your curb appeal and be the most stylish home on the block.
For the Craftsman Enthusiast
Timeless, elegant, captivating. Craftsman style is meant to be functional while highlighting the home’s unique features with woodgrain and earth-toned colors. The Timbergrain SDL collection is available in Cherry, Oak, Knotty Alder, Mahogany, and Fir species. They feature woodgrain bars to add depth and dimension to your front door.
For the Statement Maker
Dramatic, show-stopping, head-turner. Contemporary SDL doors create a truly extraordinary front door that will enamor friends and family as they enter your home to create endless memories. Make a statement entry with these wider flat bars, available in 3.5″ or 5.125″ widths. Crafted on fiberglass Fir species, choose your woodgrain finish for a final personalized touch.
