The hardware on this door was far enough from the window that a regular frame could be used, and the more expensive French cut-out avoided. Notice the absence of a tilt rod which provides a cleaner look and yet still gives the client two seperate louver zones for better privacy control.
For optimum light it is best to configure a single panel for each window, and to employ a larger louver size, with hidden tilt.This Stoney Creek customer used this stategy throughout her golf course home.
