We have picked the choices that provide the best backgrounds for glass etching and have eliminated the confusion of choices that just don’t work. The chart below applies ONLY to exterior door inserts.
It will tell you if it comes in the right size for you and if it’s offered in Impact glass or just standard tempered.
These are only offered in clear or frosted glass options at this time.
The glass choices for exterior inserts
The images are very closeups so the texture is smaller than depicted. By far the most popular is Microgranite. It has a small texture and offers sufficient privacy. Vapor is very pretty glass and has a large watery ripply texture. It does distort the view into the home but less than the Microgranite or Rain. Streamed texture is so dense it can be recommended for bathrooms also. Clear is used when you do want a view to the outdoors through the door insert. Clear is the most often used perhaps because many people want to be able to see their view when inside the home. This would be especially true for back entry doors.
Interior Door Options
Since interior doors are single layered, the etched design will show on the glass. Therefore, we can offer frosted glass for our interior doors but not for the exterior door inserts.
Exterior door inserts are 2 layers with an airspace, therefore the design will not show. The following images reflect options for interior doors only. The exterior door insert image options are shown above.
