Door Between the Glass Options
Design flexibility and lower maintenance costs
Pella offers between-the-glass options for commercial entrances and patio doors.
For projects where between-the-glass blinds or shades would fit your commercial entrance door needs, Pella offers the following options:
- Fiberglass and steel entrance doors are available with blinds between insulating glass.
- Designer Series out-swing hinged doors are available with blinds, shades and grilles between the panes of glass. Since these doors are available with low profile sills, they can be used at building entrances where a single door or active-inactive double door meets code requirements, and the hardware solution allows access to the between-the-glass options.
Pella® Designer Series® aluminum-clad wood patio doors are available with cordless, removable between-the-glass blinds, fabric shades and grilles. They're located between the panes of glass, protected from damage, thus reducing cleaning, maintenance and replacement costs.
Pella also offers permanent blinds between insulating glass on Encompass by Pella® and Pella® 350 Series vinyl sliding patio doors. Pella 350 Series sliding doors also offer an option for permanent shades between insulating glass.
