Divided Lites

All Window and Door Design Options 

Divided Lites

The look of multiple, individual panes of glass in a window sash is popular in a wide range of architectural styles–from historic replications to modern farmhouses. For those who seek historical accuracy, authentic divided lites utilize many individual glass panes in a single window. Simulated divided lites, available in a number of different styles, mimic the look of individual panes of glass in a window sash without sacrificing the energy efficiency of a single pane of glass.


Authentic Divided Lite (ADL)

Authentic Divided Lite (ADL)

Separate pieces of glass are glazed between muntin bars – the way windows have been made since the beginning but with Marvin's updated design to increase energy efficiency.

Simulated Divided Lite (SDL)

Simulated Divided Lite (SDL)

An energy-efficient way to create the look of authentic divided lites, SDL bars are permanently adhered to both sides of the glass and are available with or without a spacer bar installed between the glass to create even more depth that resembles an ADL.

Simulated Divided Lite with Spacer Bar (SDLS)

Simulated Divided Lite with Spacer Bar (SDLS)

Paired with SDL bars on the exterior of the glass, a spacer bar is installed between the glass, creating an even closer match to the Authentic Divided Lite look.

Grilles-between-the-Glass (GBGs)

Grilles-between-the-Glass (GBGs)

Grilles are permanently installed between the glass panes for a low-maintenance, smooth exterior and easy cleaning. Choose from 13 exterior colors and 4 interior colors.


Sticking and Profiles

Sticking refers to the interior profile of the wood surrounding the daylight opening—the piece of wood that connects the glass to the sash or frame. Choose from the standard Ogee option (used on traditional projects) or optional Square profile in three standard bar widths:

  • ⅝"
  • ⅞"
  • 1 ⅛"

Modern

To achieve the large, uninterrupted expanses of glass typical in modern projects, divided lites are not available on our Signature Modern line. If desired, a simulated frame divider like a single simulated divided lite can be applied to the midline of a window to create the appearance of two large windows where only one has been installed.
