We often get requests for doors with blinds sealed between the two panes of glass. The main reason most people like this style of window or door treatment is convienience. You will never have to clean the blinds. Another big advantave is that kids and pets will not be able to accidently damage your blinds!

They will tilt, raise and lower without problems for many years after installation. Most manufacturers offer 10 year warrantees, and some manufacturers offer LIFETIME Guarantees on the performance of the blinds.

Here is a happy customer explaining why he selected the internal blind option, while demonstrating how they work.

 Steel Entry Doors have these advantages over wood doors:

  • Low maintenance
  • security
  • will not warp
  • closes tight but will not swell
  • many glass options
  • leaded glass available
  • can be made to fit your opening
  • almost any size available
  • pre-painted at factory
  • can be retrofit ior new construction
  • many frame styles
  • can be hinged to fit your needs

 The photo below shows a double door, center hinged with "raise and lower" internal blinds.

The following series of photos show how a window/door wall has been updated. The original space was converted from a garage into a family room.

The windows were aluminum and the door was wood. By changing to vinyl windows and a steel  entry door, maintenance was virtually eliminated, while offering the homeowner the perfect solution to the traditional problem of blinds on a door...put them inside the glass!
