Panel Layout

This control allows you to choose how the main frame is constructed around glazed panels. Options include:

  • No Transom - the glazed panels are separated from the door leaves by a vertical mullion. No horizontal transoms are included.
  • Transom with Full Height Jambs - vertical mullions separate the glazing from the door leaves. A horizontal transom extends across the top of the door leaves, between the vertical mullions.
  • Full Width Transom - a horizontal transom extends across the full width of the door, separating the overlight from door leaves and sidelights. Vertical mullions extend up to the transom. This forms a full-width overlight.
  • Corner Lights - full height vertical mullions intersect with a full width horizontal transom. This forms separate spaces for the overlight, the sidelights, and two corner lights.
  • No Jambs - a full-width horizontal transom separates the overlight from the door leaves and sidelights. No vertical mullions are included. Door leaves are hinged directly to the sidelights.
  • Corner Lights with No Jambs - a full-width horizontal transom separates the overlight from the door leaves and sidelights. The overlight is split by a small vertical transom at either end, forming corner lights. Door leaves are hinged directly to the sidelights.

Rail Dimensions

 

Set the heights and widths of rails that divide and frame the sidelight and overlight panels.

Note that, depending on the internal layout of the sidelights and overlights, not all of these rails will be inserted.

 Glazing Bars Placement

 

For each panel of a sidelight or overlight, you can choose how the glazing bars are applied.

  • For simple patterns (e.g. Regular Grid), choose whether to apply the glazing bars to each panel.
  • For Edge Grid or Edge Bars, choose to include bars on any combination of head, sill, left jamb and right jamb.
