Solid Panel Door Styles
Panel doors come in many designs and sizes and can be painted and stained to coordinate with your home. Textured panels
are available in Oak grain, either unfinished, factory-stained, or factory-painted with K-Kron II, a high performance exterior
coating. Smooth panels are available unfinished or factory-painted.
Composite Top & Bottom Rails
High-strength engineered composite top and bottom rails prevent moisture from seeping into the door.
Won’t Crack, Rot, Split or Warp
Our high-impact compression molded skins will not splinter, warp or rot. Our deep-profile fiberglass skins create stronger
dimensions and crisper shadow lines. Architecturally correct stile and rail proportions enhance the door’s traditional
Polyurethane Foam Core
The environmentally friendly polyurethane core used in our doors provides high insulation properties.
Divided Lite Options
Grilles-in-the-airspace are constructed with aluminum bars sealed between two panes
of insulating glass, offering the look of divided panes while reducing cleaning time. For
units with insulating glass, contoured, 3/4" wide bars are standard in White, Beige, Sand,
Rustic, Hartford Green and Chutney. Optional colors are light wood and dark wood faux
finishes. Flat, 5/8" wide grille bars are also available in White, Beige, Sand, Rustic, Hartford
Green, Chutney, light wood and dark wood faux finishes and Brass. Two-tone contour or
flat grilles are available with either light or dark wood faux finishes to the interior and White
to the exterior. Also available are 5/16" wide brass or pewter “pencil” bars.
Not all options are available for all products. Please contact your Kolbe dealer for details.
Performance Divided Lites
Kolbe’s performance divided lite (PDL) glazing system gives the appearance of true
divided lites without sacrificing energy efficiency. Bars are adhered to the exterior and
interior of the single lite of insulating glass*, with aesthetically-pleasing spacer bars within
the insulating glass unit. PDL are available in 5/8", 7/8", 1-1/8", 1-3/4", 2-1/4" or 4-1/2"
bar widths. PDL bars used on Standard textured panels will be Oak wood species on
the interior and exterior. PDL bars used on Standard smooth panels will be primed or
painted to match the interior or exterior of the door panel. Standard doors with the PDL
option will have a wood saddle using the same species and/or finish guidelines as above.
Variations on the PDL option may include custom divided lite patterns, bar widths, or no
* Some intricate designs and coastal applications may have a composite material for the exterior PDL bar.
