ODL Doorglass

Enhance Your Entryway with ODL Doorglass

Guardian Hurricane Protection takes pride in offering top-notch products that not only provide safety and protection but also enhance the beauty and aesthetics of your home. That’s why we have partnered with ODL, a leading manufacturer of handcrafted doorglass, to bring you a wide range of exquisite options that cater to diverse design preferences across the country.

Our experience is evident in the quality of handcrafted glass, cut and shaped in a range of styles to match a diversity of home owner’s design preferences across the country. ODL’s experience is also reflected in the quality of doorglass construction: two panels of tempered safety glass, insulated for air- and water-tight performance. When you look at any one of our decorative doorglass products, you see a cohesive design, but many individual elements come together to create that design. 

Decorative Doorglass

Decorative glass is handmade by skilled craftsman, and it is subject to variation. Each piece of glass is cut and individually positioned into the caming to create the decorative design. In the tradition of decorative glass creation, glass fits into the caming but is not cemented into the caming. Therefore the decorative glass panel is subject to some movement and sound (usually more of a “tinkling” sound); this is not considered a defect. 

From grandiose camed designs to elegant etched privacy glass, our decorative doorglass is engineered and crafted to be exactly what your home needs.


Light & Privacy Levels

Each doorglass design varies in the amount of light it transfers and privacy it affords. We assign a numerical privacy level to each doorglass, from a 0 for low-privacy transparent glass to a 10 for highprivacy opaque glass.

Homeowners can also select decorative doorglass in a price range that suits their budget. Four levels, from the higher range Group A to the lower range Group D, are offered based on doorglass design and materials.

Glass Textures

The texture and surface of handcrafted glass offers you aesthetic elements such as depth, dimension, and contrast.  It also contributes to light and privacy levels. These are the glass textures currently offered in our decorative doorglass designs.

Glass Textures


Doorglass finishes, also known as caming, refer to the metal work that joins together the glass elements. Finishes are an important consideration, as they contribute a good deal of the visual style of your doorglass design. We offer a wide selection of finishes for each design to give homeowners options for matching door hardware, light fixtures, or interior furnishings.


Shapes, Sizes and Configurations

Our doorglass designs are offered in several sizes from a partial-view to a full-view glass door. We also offer sidelight and transom glass. A selection of shapes, as well, offers plenty of options to meet your design preference and amount of natural light you’re looking for.

Enclosed Doorglass Blinds

Enclosed Doorglass Blinds

Enclosed doorglass blinds are a practical and stylish addition to any home. With their ability to enhance privacy, control light, require low maintenance, and contribute to energy efficiency, they offer a host of benefits that traditional curtains or external blinds often lack. Enclosed blinds mean no dust or dirt, no kinks or dents, and no banging of the blinds when you open and close your door. A cordless design is a safer solution when children or pets are in the house. 

Light and Privacy Control

You can close your blinds for complete privacy and security or open them up to enjoy the outdoors—and every level in between. The levels of light and privacy are yours to control using our easy operator. The full privacy channels eliminate light gaps, shadows, and sunlight glare. The NEW colors are offered with Low-E + glass and can meet ENERGY STAR® requirements when used with an ENERGY STAR® qualified door.

Low Maintenance

Since our blinds are enclosed between two panels of glass, you never need to dust which decreases allergens. Even with repeated use, our Enclosed Blinds retain their new look, unlike exposed blinds that can become bent or tangled over time. ODL Enclosed Blinds carry a 20-year warranty on blinds, glass seal and operator for a long-term performance in your exterior door.


ODL is leading the industry in enclosed blinds that reduce the safety risk for children and pets. Because our Enclosed Blinds do not have dangling cords, they have received two certifications. WCMA’s “Certified Best for Kids” designation and Parents for Window Blind Safety (PWBS) Seal of Approval. Both organizations strongly urge parents to use window coverings without accessible cords in homes with children. In addition, all of our Enclosed Blinds are offered in tempered safety glass.

Easy to Operate

The ergonomically placed single* operator lets you raise, lower and tilt your blinds the entire length of the doorglass with only the slightest movement. No reaching or stooping is needed to adjust the blinds. An innovative design results in stacked blinds that take up the smallest of space at the top of the doorglass when fully opened.  

Enclosed Blinds Color Collection

Enclosed Blinds Color Collection

In keeping with ODL’s attention to style and design, we are introducing four NEW colors of Enclosed BlindsSand, Espresso, Slate Gray, and Silver Moon. With matching privacy channels and operators, the colors of your entry door blinds will always coordinate with your décor. The collection is available in Evolve® frames which provide superior rigidity and eliminate bothersome squeeze out using our dry glaze seal. 

Are ODL Enclosed Blinds energy efficient?

Thermally sealed door glass adds up to energy savings by reducing heat loss in the winter and solar heat gain in the summer. Available as an option, Low-E glass reduces heating and cooling costs, protects fabrics and carpets from fading, and reduces condensation.

Fully enclosed blinds give you a maintenance-free option for controlling levels of doorglass privacy. A single fingertip control lets you raise, lower or tilt the blinds.

Severe Weather Doorglass

ODL severe weather doorglass is designed for hurricane-rated doors, especially for homes in wind-borne debris regions or high-velocity hurricane zones (HVHZ). The severe weather products meet wind-borne requirements in areas where wind speeds can exceed 180 mph, Design Pressure (DP) ±66 psf, and wind and missile impact code requirements.

Added Value of Noise Suppression

Doorglass Frames Enhance Entry Door Performance

The long-term performance of an exterior door with a glass insert is dependent upon the doorglass framing system. Just as every building and remodeling project is different, so are specialized doorglass framing systems. Quality frames are both durable and flexible to meet distinct market needs and are available in several different visual finishes. They are manufactured with high-performance resin, which requires less long-term maintenance, and they are engineered for quick installation for a variety of door applications.
