Adding glass panels or side lites to a new Masonite entry door is a great way to create a unique look that neighbors will notice. The new Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) kit from Masonite makes it easy to “customize” a clear or textured glass Masonite door or sidelites. Compatible with 6.8” and 8’0” doors and sidelites, each kit offers the old world charm of true divided lite without the need for a complete overhaul. The new SDL kit allows builders, remodelers, and homeowners to customize the appearance of Masonite exterior doors or sidelites and choose from a variety of arrangements at a fraction of the cost of true divided lite.
Here are just a few benefits of creating your own glass design with the Masonite Simulated Divided Lite kit:
Ease-of-installation – The SDL kit features 1-1/8” bars that snap into place to form a grid configuration. Each kit aligns perfectly with Masonite lite frames and is designed for easy field installation.
Visuals – The Masonite SDL kits are available in a variety of standard or Prairie style designs for 6’8” and 8’0” doors and sidelites. Buyers can choose from white, almond and mahogany finishes with smooth or textured options. The bars can also be painted or stained for a custom look.
Energy savings – In some cases, having a single panel of glass may be more energy efficient than having multiple panels in a true divided lite. The SDL kits can give homeowners the look they want with benefit of energy savings.
Authentic look – Every Masonite SDL kit includes two sets of grids for the inside and outside of the door. A strong, weather-resistant adhesive tape ensures the bars stay in place, offering the look and feel of a true divided lite.
If you’re buying a new Masonite entry door with clear or textured glass or sidelites, be the envy of the neighborhood by adding a personalized touch with a Masonite SDL kit. For more information on the Simulated Divided Lite kits, visit www.masonite.com.
