Fiberglass entry door window grill questions
I have a question regarding the window grill options that are typical in new replacement fiberglass doors and sidelights colonial trim. Right now, weÂre considering replacement of our door and weÂre looking at a Therma-Tru smooth-star (model S236).
I was disappointed to learn that the grill width for their "fixed" option, which is applied on both the exterior and interior sides is only a Â½ inch wide. I would have thought it would be a wider grill to more closely simulate older wood doors and sidelights. The grill width in our current wood door with the four small windows at the top is 1 3/8".
Would anyone know if the Â½" grill is typical for entry door systems? Are there other door manufacturers we should consider that might have a thicker grill option? Our door and sidelights will have traditional rectangular openings.
