Door Between the Glass Options

Design flexibility and lower maintenance costs


Pella offers between-the-glass options for commercial entrances and patio doors.

Commercial Entrances

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.
  • Pella® Lifestyle Series in-swing patio doors are available with low profile sills, they can be used at entrances where a single door or active-inactive double door meets code requirements.

Patio Doors

Pella Lifestyle Series aluminum-clad wood patio doors with triple-glazing are available with cordless, integrated blinds and fabric shades and between the glass 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.

  • Accessible, integrated blinds provide light control and stay protected from dust and damage.
