Measuring an Existing Door for a Decorative Glass Insert

If you know your glass size proceed by clicking on IMPACT or NON-IMPACT which will take you to the section where you may select the proper size and peruse the various choices. If you are unsure of your glass size, please follow the simple steps below.

Steps

Step 1

Measure the thickness of your entry door. It should measure at 1-3/4” or very close to that measurement.

Step 2

Measure A and B from the diagram shown of a typical 6 Panel door. If A is 30”, measurement B CANNOT exceed 21” and your glass size will be 20” wide.

Step 3

If A is 32”, 34”, or 36”, measurement B CANNOT exceed 23” and your glass size will be 22” wide.
NOTE: If your door is less than 34” wide, you MUST use a standard lockset. Anything larger like a keypad lock will not work as there is insufficient space between the glass frame and the lockset.

Step 4

Measure E. This is your door height and is approximately 80” or 96”. Whichever door you have, take measurements C and D.
Go directly to Step 6 if you have a 96” door.

Step 5

On an 80” door requiring full glass, measurement C CANNOT exceed 65” and a full glass insert will require a 22” x 64” piece of glass for this size door. If half glass is required, measurement D CANNOT exceed 37” and the glass size required will be 22” x 36”.

Step 6

On a 96” door requiring full glass, measurement C CANNOT exceed 81” and a full glass insert will require a 22” x 80” piece of glass for this size door. If half glass is required, measurement D CANNOT exceed 49” and the glass size required will be 22” x 48”.

Step 7

You may now click on the IMPACT or NON-IMPACT buttons below where you may select the proper size and peruse the various choices.
NOTE: On a door without panels (a flat door), only measurements A and E are required. The rules for STEPS 1 and 2 and the note on STEP 3 still apply.
