Colonial Doors

A Colonial Door or Colonial French door has an additional horizontal rail located in the glass space of the door. A colonial door adds a little bit of privacy by blocking visibility through the bottom section where the wooden panel is located. The horizontal rail referred to as “lockrail” separates a divided or undivided glass section above and a wooden panel or panels section below. The lockrail is typically a wide “bar” that holds glass or wooden panels. The panel section can house one panel or multiple panel. One option that is available is when rails called crossbucks that form an ‘X’ are used to separate the panel section into four triangular panels.
