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 flush-glazed textured panels will be Oak wood species on the interior and exterior. PDL bars used on flush-glazed
smooth panels will be primed or painted to match the interior or exterior of the door panel. Variations on the PDL option
may include custom divided lite patterns, bar widths, or no spacer bars.
