Material & Painting/Staining (detailed painting instructions included in box):
Standard Profile Tan and White frames for 1" thick glass are made of a superior quality polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend (PC/ABS). These are "High Heat" frames that are ideal if your door faces the sun or is behind a storm door that traps heat. Frames can be painted or stained without a primer. They can also be left tan or white unfinished and are "maintenance free" meaning they won't crack or discolor even without paint or stain. The tan frames are a better option if you plan to stain your frames, as they will provide a more wood-like background color and will require fewer coats of stain.
Flat Profile (also known as Shaker) frames and Standard Profile frames for 1/2" thick glass are made of a high grade polypropylene and are also maintenance free, so they do not require paint. They are a big upgrade from the traditional polystyene frames and can handle all but the most extreme of heat conditions. If you do choose to paint or stain these frames, you will need a special adhesion promoting primer, which can be found in our paint section, alongside a curated selection of great paint colors that are specially formulated for doors & door glass frames.
