Simulated, or Authentic


Simulated Divided Lites (SDL) enhance the architectural interest of windows and doors through the addition of wood or clad muntins over a continuous piece of insulated glass.

  • Can be wood, or pre-finished aluminum clad.  (Typically 1’’ wide)
  • Shadow bar inside the glass
  • Wood SDLs can be a custom shape, profile, or width.  (Shaped SDLs do not allow for an internal shadow bar.)


Authentic Divided Lites (ADL) are individual sealed glass units separated by muntins within a window sash or door.

  • Minimum face dimension of 1/2’’
  • Custom shapes, profiles and sizes available
